Roof leaks can be caused by many different things. Storm damage from hail, tree damage from falling limbs, damage by people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles, and so on. However, 90% of all roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. Rarely does the actual roofing product fail. Flashing is found near any roof penetration area such as chimney areas, step, apron and valley areas where roof angles join together. During a roof repair, it is necessary to look for any other roof damage that could lead to additional problems. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to be exposed to dampness.
In addition, the poor installation of roof shingles, which are sometimes nailed incorrectly, may need to be addressed. If roof shingles are missing, these will need to be replaced also.
Clogged gutters also be a cause of roofing problems. Water may overflow the back of the gutter and leak along the walls and inside of the home. In addition, flue pipes inside of a chimney can cause water to leak if they are not properly aligned.
Roof replacement is extremely important in protecting your home from the elements. A leaking roof will easily cause thousands of dollars in damage if it is not corrected quickly. However, leaks are not the only symptoms that my cause you to need to replace your roof. Keep a look out for large fluctuations in your heating and cooling bills. The roof keeps warm air in the winter and keeps it out in the summer; so damage to the roof might cause big fluctuations. Our Field Manager and inspectors work together to ensure the quality of workmanship remains its best on every install.
