Often caused by high winds, lifted shingles are problematic because they can allow water to seep to the underlying layers of your roof system. Often, inexperienced roofing contractors will not cut the shingles properly for the right course or pattern resulting in gaps for water to enter underneath or wind to catch the edges. There’s also a chance that over time, repeated high winds can rip any lifted shingles right off, exposing your roof to even further damage.
Roofing materials need to be compatible with each other. The various layers of a roof system, plus any fasteners and flashing, need to account expansion and contraction from temperature changes. Materials that aren’t compatible can make your roof susceptible to damage and extensive repairs down the road.
An obvious problem, holes in your roof expose your house to the elements and potentially to wildlife, both of which can wreak havoc on the inside of your house. Avoid water damage or animal infestations by addressing roof holes as soon as you notice them.
Flashing on your roof helps create weathertight seals around features on your roof, such as chimneys, swamp coolers or other penetrations. Damage from weather or water to seeping through your roof and cause damage to your home’s interior ceiling and walls.
Your gutters and downspouts are an essential part of your roof as they collect and carry away water and small debris from your roof. Damage to either can result in damage to your roof. Gutters that are pulled out of place, poorly installed, or detached will compromise the essential layers that protect your roof from damage. It is essential that any roofing company installs ice and water shields around the edge of your roof to combat ice dam in the gutters, especially on the north side of your home.
