The Most Common Damage In Roofing
It’s 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.

Under damaged shingles. At flashing points we see certain types of roof damage far more often than others – here are some of the most common types, and why you need to seek out repairs immediately if you experience these problems.

1. Loose And Broken Shingle

The first common damage in roof is that your roof needs to be able to resist hot and cold temperatures, high winds, and wet conditions. As soon as the elements lift or damage any shingles, you’ll need to make repairs a top priority. Otherwise, your roof could lose more shingles and water will damage the sheathing.

Replacing a damaged or loose shingle is probably all that your roof needs. Laying a new roof is a costly undertaking. Even if you don’t want to think about installing a new roof, you have no choice since the shingles will be loose or suffer a few damages at some point. Regular checks on the roof prepare you adequately for the task that awaits you. If the regular inspections help you notice damaged or loose shingles.

2. Animals In The Roof

Animals are most likely to break in and enter your home in spring, when it’s mating season and they need a cozy place to nest and in fall, especially in northern climes where they seek warm shelter from the coming cold of winter.

These uninvited, unwelcome visitors may announce their presence by sight, sound or smell. If you hear animals on your roof, notice animal droppings on your roof or actually see critters moving under the eaves or physically entering your home, first walk around your house and check things out from ground level.

3. Roofing Leaking

You know your roof is leaking. Maybe you see water stains on the ceiling, or it’s more obvious with water dripping through the ceiling.

Before you can get the leaks to stop and repair the damage inside, you need to know what’s causing the leak. Finding the root cause of the water leakage is essential to repairing it and preventing future issues

They are the two most dreaded words in a homeowner’s vocabulary: a leaky roof. Water is the most insidious foe, eager to penetrate your home covering’s most vulnerable defenses. And once inside, the damage and destruction may be taking place far from the point of the initial attack, making the initial source of a roof leak difficult to identify

4. Snow And Ice Damage

The most common damage in roofing also is Ice dams happen when a hunk of ice forms at the edge of the roof line and blocks the drainage of melting snow and water into your gutters. In addition to putting your gutters and downspouts at risk for damage, the standing water caught in the dam can leak into the interior of your home causing the need for structural repairs to your roof, ceiling, and walls. And if the excess moisture is not addressed, this can also cause unwanted mold and mildew to form.

I have missing soffits at the edge of my roof. Mice were using the holes to get into my attic. Even though the job is small, Luis came and fixed them for me the very next day after my calling for service. Quality and professional work, easy to communicate with and with reasonable cost. I am a happy customer.

Luis and his crew replaced my roof shingles and three skylights in 2 days. They protected the shrubs around my house and cleaned up the roofing nails with a magnetic broom. After they left you would not know that they were ever there. They are all very pleasant, hard workers, and I may be hiring them to repair the ceiling that was damaged due to roof leaks. Definitely 5 stars!
