The moment installation is complete, your roofing system gets exposed to the elements and other external conditions. It can experience problems over time, but with proper care and maintenance, you can prolong its lifespan. By educating yourself about the following common residential roofing problems, you can avoid potential headaches and money pits.
Lack of Regular Maintenance
Minor defects and regular wear and tear can lead to major roofing problems. such as leaks and moisture damage. Such issues, however, can easily be prevented if found in their earlier stages. This is one reason why you should be proactive when it comes to roof maintenance. Scheduling a roof inspection with a reputable contractor helps keep your roof in good condition.
The roof is one of your home’s primary defenses against bad weather, but it can be subject to damage, especially if there’s a particularly severe storm. Strong wind events can cause direct damage (wind uplift) or indirect damage (impact from wind-carried debris). Hailstones falling from the sky can lead to dents and loss of protective granules on shingles. Fortunately, roof replacement pros in regions where strong winds are rampant can reinforce roofing systems against these weather conditions.
A leaking or sagging roof is caused by structural deficiencies. This issue can sometimes be hard to identify without a detailed inspection. Meanwhile, design issues caused by a lack of foresight or installation errors on the part of the roofer can lead to the same problems. This would require a full roof replacement to fix.
