Interior Damage for Bad Roof
Water intrusion from a roof leak can cause serious damage to a structure and its contents. If you see any signs of water intrusion, such as discoloration or mold growth on your ceilings or walls, contact us immediately. We will examine your roof and inspect the areas around your home for moisture penetration.
Bad or Missing Roof Shingles
It is extremely important to inspect your home’s roof regularly, knowing when shingles have begun to wear out can help prevent problems from forming. If any are missing or loose, this could allow water to get between them and leak into your house. Make sure to have your roof repaired as soon as a problem is noticed.
Cracks or Loose Material on Home
If the roofing cement is showing cracks or flashing is loose, water can get in under the roof and cause damage. If you see cracking or peeling, or if there are holes where mounting brackets or other hardware are supposed to be attached, call in a professional roof repair service before it gets worse.
Presence of Algae or Moss on Roof
If discoloration is on your roof, it could be algae. This can easily be removed with some bleach followed by a low-pressure rinse to keep your roof looking great. A more serious problem is the presence of moss, which is a sign that moisture is trapped on the roof causing damage to it over time. After moss is removed and you’ve determined there’s no structural damage, you should always inspect your roof for any other problems.
Ponding Water on Roof
Water leakage from the roof has many sources but it is important to address them promptly. Small ponds of water can create major problems for your roof structure, if these are not addressed it will lead to deterioration and eventually require a full replacement.
Visible Sagging of Roof
A sagging roof is not always an emergency, but if it is severe enough to be visible, the first step should be repairing the problem. Older roofs, particularly those that use wood rafters, will sag if the underlying structure isn’t properly supported. If it goes unnoticed for long enough, this damage can lead to ponding and then leaks or roof failure.
