Roof repair

Taking care of your roof is arguably one of the most important tasks as a homeowner. It can be easy to neglect and forget about your roofing because it is a sort of an out of sight, out of mind maintenance task. Plus, too many homeowners think that they will be able to easily spot a problem with their rooftop.  This simply isn’t true. Detecting this kind of problem early is key to being able to save the structural integrity of your roof.

Here are the most common Roofing Problems to be on the lookout for…

Lack of Maintenance

When it comes down to it, your roof needs to be maintained over time like any other part of your home you’d check on periodically. Ideally, you should schedule an annual inspection of your roofing. If you live in an area with unconventional weather conditions or regularly experience strong storms, you’ll likely need to get an additional inspection throughout the year. Talk to one of our roofing contractors to learn more about how to best maintain your roof.

Damaged Flashing

Flashing is a material made of plastic or sheet metal and is installed in the roof joints to protect from leaks. It is also used to preserve venting pipes under your roofing materials. If flashing cracks or becomes loose, your home becomes vulnerable to water damage and moisture. If you notice any damaged flashing, contact 3MG to help take steps to prevent future damage.

Storm Related Damage

Living in Florida, you roof is bound to take some damage during hurricane season on top of the year-round wear and tear. Rain, heavy winds, lightning or even broken branches can all cause major roofing damage. Make sure following any weather-related events you have your roof inspected as soon as possible to avoid expensive repairs or experiencing uncomfortable living situations.

Moisture

Although generally moisture is not a problem without a leak being present this is not always the case. Standing water creates consistent moisture, which leads to problems like mold and mildew, and all of this will eventually lead rotting in your home. It’s important that water can properly drain off to avoid this serious problem. Check with a professional to ensure that your roof has proper drainage ability.

Roof Leaks

No matter what type of roof you have, if a leak develops… you have a problem. Once a leak compromises that all you can hope to do is fix it in time to minimize the damage. There are any number of reasons that leaks can occur; the concern is detecting them in time and carrying out repairs and clean up in time. Some of the most common causes of a roof leak include cracked flashing, broken shingles, or structural damage to tiles or slate.

Damaged Shingles

Although generally moisture is not a problem without a leak being present this is not always the case. Standing water creates consistent moisture, which leads to problems like mold and mildew, and all of this will eventually lead rotting in your home. It’s important that water can properly drain off to avoid this serious problem. Check with a professional to ensure that your roof has proper drainage ability.

Trees

Overhanging tree limbs can rub on a roof, abrading the surface of the shingles and wearing away the protective top layer. Tree limbs should be trimmed back away from the roof as much as possible and if a tree is close enough to potentially fall on your home, it should be removed.

An Old Roof

Sometimes, the problem is that your roof is just simply old. Your shingles are beginning to curl, the roof is beginning to sag, or your power bills being sky high are all signs that it’s time to replace your roof. The best thing you can do for your home is to take the first step and speak with a professional about options for replacing your roof.
