As roofers, although we realize that every roof is unique, most of the problems we take care of are fairly common. If you want to keep your roof in good shape and prevent the need for avoidable repairs, here are some common problems we encounter and how to avoid them.
- A Shorter Life Expectancy- Most roofs generally last about 25 years. We realize that when you have a new roof installed on your home, you want to make sure it lasts at least this long. To keep your roof from prematurely aging, it’s a good idea to have our roofers come and inspect it for issues on a regular basis.
- Leaks and Holes- Your roof naturally becomes more brittle and weaker as it ages, which can make it susceptible to holes and leaks. To ensure that leaks and holes do not extensively damage your roof, you need to control the amount of moisture that accumulates on top of it. Make sure your gutter system is durable and that it effectively regulates the flow of debris and water off of your roof.
- Obstructions- Roof obstructions, like electrical cables and trees, can easily damage shingles and pose a safety threat to anyone who comes near your property. If a large object falls on top of your roof, make sure you allow our professional team of roofers to take care of it before it causes additional damage.
