Top 6 Common Issues To Watch Out In Your Roofby Roofing Champ Roofing Services & Renovation
there is a host of roofing issues you may come across over a lifetime
of your roof, some are more common than others. Sooner or later, an
asphalt shingle roof will require repairs, whether for normal wear &
tear or severe weather damage. Listed below are a few common issues to
be on the lookout for in your roof:
Faulty or poor installation:
faulty or poor installation of your roofing material can dramatically
increase the likelihood of problems and reduces a roof system’s life
expectancy. You need to hire a professional to tell you if your roof has
been installed perfectly.
Poorly installed flashing:
is what seals the areas where your roof has been penetrated (like vent
pipes, sky lights, chimneys and heating and cooling systems. When
flashing is poorly attached, it can cause open seams and laps and
ultimately cause tiles to blow-off. Improperly installed flashing can
also reduce puncture resistance in your roof.
probably the single most common roofing problem facing homeowners. From
cracked flashing (those thin, weatherproofed pieces of metal that are
designed to keep water out) to broken shingles, tiles or slate there are
nearly as many causes as there are roofs.
Most commonly, roof leaks have a tendency to occur:
- Close to the chimney
- Under damaged shingles
- At flashing points
- Around gutters
- At skylights
- Close to vents & pipes
- In low spots or valleys
If you see signs of a leak, including discolored ceilings or damp walls, don’t hesitate to contact an NYC roof repair service immediately.
Cracking & blistering:
time, roofs can develop cracks, blisters, and ridges. Your chances of
seeing such damage depend on the type of roof you have installed.
Built-up roofs are roofs made of several layers that cover a relatively
flat surface, are particularly susceptible to cracking and blistering.
goes without saying, If a tree limb crashes into your roof, you are in
trouble. However, even if the branches rub against your roof on a daily
basis, they can scratch the surface and wear down the top layer. At the
very least, it’s safer for your roof if trees are trimmed so no limbs
are resting on top of your home. At the very most, you might consider
removing any trees that pose a serious danger to the integrity of the
animals, birds, and insect can cause a surprising amount of damage. It
is best to kick out them before they get a foothold.
“V” stands for valleys issues. If you have multiple rooms your entire
roof would have multiple valleys and the point where both roof surfaces
joins is considered to be the leak prone zone.
