Residential Roof Repair Services
Over time, and as we move through the seasons, your home is exposed to a variety of conditions including high winds, heavy rainfall, extreme heat, snow and ice. As the single biggest protection to your home, the roof takes the brunt of this punishment. This makes it crucial for you to regularly inspect your roof to make sure it is in great condition to protect you and your loved ones. Prevention is always better than reaction, particularly when the difference is between a minor repair and a full roof replacement.
Signs a Roof Repair is Needed
- Clawing or curling shingles. This is a sign of a roofing system that is quickly aging and receiving too much heat from the floors below.
- Bare spots and missing granules. A poor drainage design can wash away granules and create a waterfall effect. This physical damage can cause bare spots, and over time, the shingles will harden. The combination of bare spots and missing granules degrades the shingles faster, making a roof repair inevitable.
- Missing or broken shingles.This reduces the roof’s efficiency to drain water from its surface. Additionally, it can be an entry point for water that is not draining enough from the roof.
- Buckling shingles. In high winds, buckling shingles can curl up and be removed from the structure. Ice can also accumulate under the shingle, creating more problems that can be easily prevented with a minor roof repair.
- Damaged flashings. Though not always visible, dried-out caulking is a sign that a roof repair is needed. Contraction and expansion can loosen hardware on the flashing, creating an entry point for water into your home.
Commercial Flat Roof Repair Services
Flat roofs are cost-efficient and practical. It is no surprise, therefore, that they are so common in many large residential and commercial buildings. However, with all its benefits, this roof system requires regular maintenance to ensure it is still functioning well. Leaking is one of the most common problems associated with flat roofs. These leaks can be caused by many factors, including:
- UV rays
- Extreme weather
- Improper roof installation
- Outdated roofing technology
- Improperly installed rooftop equipment
- Pooling water on the roof surface
If not caught in time, these issues can lead to costly problems. We recommend that you perform a roof inspection at least twice a year and after any major storm.
What Type of Flat Roof Maintenance is Needed?
One of the most important and often most neglected flat roof maintenance solutions is keeping the roof drains free of debris. Clogged roof drains will cause water to pond on the roof, which can then seep into flashing seams and freeze, weakening the seams. 90% of all flat roof leaks occur at the flashings. It is, therefore, important to repair the lap seams in the base flashings.
While ponding is the main cause of water leaks, improper workmanship during roof installation can cause many issues that result in leaks or trapped moisture.
