Which Are the Most Common Roofing Problems?
Cases in Which Homeowners Are Most Likely to Book a Contractor That Performs Roof Repairs
If you notice that your roof is leaking, you’d better call a professional to inspect it as there may be several causes for this problem. Here are the main ones:
- Pipe boots which are deteriorated
- Gutters and downspouts which are clogged with dirt and leaves (especially when no gutter cleaning was done in the fall)
- Rotten fascia (the lower part of your roof that covers the eaves)
- Cracked, deteriorated, or missing shingles
Now that you know in which cases homeowners are more likely to contact roof companies, you are probably also interested to find out how these contractors can attend to such problems. Here are some details:
- Due to the fact that your rain gutters are just below the fascia, any debris build-up over the gutters will cause the fascia to rot. If you do not want moisture to get into the eaves, especially during wintertime, when all type of exterior repairs are very hard to manage, you’d better call a roofer to perform some minor roof area replacing tasks, which will not allow more mold to grow.
- The most common failure with pipe flashings occurs when the boot cracks or peels away from the pipe due to excessive exposure to sun or water. As a result, water can penetrate into the roof. In order to get such problems fixed, consult a few companies providing roof repairs. Combine their opinions to make the optimal repair decision that matches your budget.
- Although some shingles have a very long-life expectancy, they may crack or break, and you may need to replace them before their warranty period has expired. This happens most commonly in the cases when a family buys a home which was built many years ago and has shingles that haven’t been repaired since its construction.
