Common Roofing Issues

ALPS Roofing Shingling

A sturdy roof is essential for any home. Roofing problems are a real nuisance that can cause serious personal discomfort. When left untreated, roofing issues can also lead to structural and foundational damage that can ruin your property. If you’re experiencing issues with your roof, contact a professional roofing contractor as soon as possible to solve the problem and minimize any damage. Here are some of the most common roofing issues experienced by home owners.

Leaks and Excess Moisture

Whether you have a flat roof, deck roof or shingles, you shouldn’t have to deal with excess moisture leaking from the top of your home. Roofing leaks can damage the baseboards and drywall of your home and even lead to mold infestations. Leaks may be the result of improperly installed shingles or roofs that have been incorrectly sealed. Some leaks simply result from wear-and-tear over time without routine maintenance. Whatever the case may be, an experienced roofing contractor will be able to fix your roofing leaks and prevent them from reappearing and doing further damage to your home.

Poor Insulation

Besides keeping your home dry and protected from the elements, your roof also provides insulation for your home. If your roof is damaged, you may have a hard time maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home, even with the help of an air conditioner or furnace. A professional roofing contractor will be able to reseal your roof and prime all of your roofing materials to ensure that your home stays as insulated and pleasant as possible.

Bent or Broken Shingles

If you have a shingled roof, bent or broken shingles can be a cause for concern. Damaged shingles lose their ability to protect your home against the elements and can ruin the insulation of your home. Shingles can become bent or broken if they are improperly installed or if they are not maintained over time. With proper maintenance, your home shouldn’t need shingle replacement for many years.
