Fall is a great time to give your room some TLC. It signals the start of the school calendar, sparing your kids the hassles of renovation. Plus, it gives you enough time to winter-proof your home.
Whether your current roofing system needs minor repairs or complete replacement, here are the common problems timely maintenance would address based on Crown Roofing’s experience:
Rotten Wood Deck
A thorough inspection allows roofing professionals to uncover signs of damage on the roof deck. Rotten wood is the result of moisture damage due to poor attic ventilation or water intrusion. However, the assessment is usually limited until the roof is stripped down to the deck. If your contractor deems replacement is necessary, avoid laying another layer of shingles over the existing one. This way, your roofers could replace the deteriorated portions of the wood deck accordingly.
Any roofing contractor would say that some cases of sagging are hardly noticeable from the ground. An inspection is the best way to reveal any depression. Although a droop doesn’t necessarily spell disaster, it pays to discover and fix it during its infancy to preserve the integrity of your roofing system.
Cracking and curling are usually signs of aging. If you feel your roof is too young to develop such cosmetic problems, something must be accelerating the process of wear and tear. Experienced roofers know how to find out the culprit and replace the affected shingles while matching the color of the current ones for visual harmony.
Any reliable roofing company would tell you any form of flashing problem is a major cause for concern. After all, these pieces of metal waterproof the soft underbelly of the roof, which includes the valleys and penetrations. Since they’re hard to spot from the ground with an untrained eye, a timely inspection can inform you about them before leaks happen.
