Your roof is a valuable part of your home. It protects the interior from any harsh exterior elements. Instead of dealing with problems as they arise, learn what the most common roofing issues are so you can take preventative measures before they cause widespread damage. Below are three common roofing problems you might face as a homeowner.
Keep an Eye Out for These 3 Frequent Roofing Problems
Leaks occur when water or moisture seeps in through cracks or underneath the roof shingles. They’re commonly the result of wind, rain, ice dams, snow and other varying weather conditions. However, where the leak appears could be far from where it originally started since the water tends to travel down to the lower parts of the roof. A professional should inspect the various layers of your roof to pinpoint the source of the damage.
2. Tree & Debris Damage
Nearby trees and their branches can fall onto the roof, particularly during intense wind and rain. They can crack and displace shingles, exposing the layers underneath. If the piles of debris are heavy enough, it can damage the structural integrity of the roof. Trim back any trees and other landscaping that can fall onto your roof to prevent expensive repairs.
3. Holes & Dents
Hail and forceful wind are common causes of roof damage. Not only will you need to replace shingles, but hail can also dent or puncture the flashing, and roof vents. After each hail and windstorm, your roof should be properly inspected for signs of damage to prevent further issues.
