Residential roofing systems protect homes from the elements. At some point in their life span, however, they may reveal a variety of problems, from small leaks to other forms of damage like cracked or broken shingles. Regardless of the extent and severity, these ailments require attention through immediate inspections and repairs.
Kroll Construction, one of the leading roofing contractors in the area, highlights the top reasons why roofs need repairs.
1. Roof Leaks
This is probably the most common problem homeowners face when it comes to their roofs. Broken roofing materials and cracked flashings can result in leaks, which manifest themselves through discolored ceilings or damp walls. A thorough inspection is necessary to detect the source of moisture infiltration, whether it is near the chimney, under damaged shingles, around gutters or at flashing points.
2. Punctures and Holes
Foot traffic during inspections and the prevalence of local wildlife can sometimes result in the appearance of noticeable punctures or holes in roofs. Roofing companies recommend immediate repairs to these problems. If left unaddressed, the damage can build up over the years, causing the roofs’ underlying wooden components to suffer rot and moisture damage.
3. Snow and Ice Damage
The winter season can sometimes be tough for many residential roofing systems. After all, snow and ice buildup on the roof can later on melt and eventually seep underneath the outer roofing layer. As soon as it refreezes, the ice underneath can push up against the roofing components, exposing the inner roofing layers to further moisture damage. Regular maintenance and repairs must be carried out to make sure roofs can prevent snow and ice damage.
