Roof Damage – What are the Most Common Factors?
A compromised roof or one that doesn’t do its job is one of the most common signs that you need a roof replacement as soon as possible.
A roof is an important element in a home or business as it keeps away the elements and makes your property complete. A timely replacement can save you a lot of headaches down the road, and a regular inspection is instrumental to this end.
Any material no matter how tough or durable will break down over time. A roof normally deteriorates and won’t be as efficient as it once was 5, 10 years ago. Homeowners who think their roof has served its purpose can contact us for an estimate and a check-up, as well as explore roofing options.
Most premature roof failures are due to improper installation. This becomes apparent early on as you’ll need to have your roof repaired more often than what’s necessary. You won’t have this problem if you choose the right roofing contractor from the start.
Hail, rain and winds can wear down your roof’s integrity and cause it to develop holes. Strong winds can take out shingles and leave your home vulnerable to the elements.
Most people won’t give their roof a second thought until it starts having trouble. However, we recommend an annual inspection in order to gauge your roof’s integrity and if it will need repairs before the problem leads to something bigger.
Flashing is the process where the roof corners and sections are sealed to prevent water and moisture from coming in. When ripped off the next rain can bring water and cause significant roof damage over time. Contractors will check for flashing as part of a yearly inspection routine.
If you encounter any of these signs then a roof replacement is probably for the best. Contact The Attic Specialist for peace of mind and a new roof that won’t break down anytime soon.
What are the Best Roof Materials?
Roof replacement is a necessary part of owning a home or a business, but it doesn’t have to be so difficult. You can opt for the same material but then you’d be missing out on innovations and possible plusses when picking a different one.
Shingles make up a large part of a roof, and in this end there are four to choose from- asphalt, wood, metal or slate. Each one has its own strengths and can work really well depending on the conditions.
Asphalt is a timeless shingle material that’s mostly known for its durability and price. The material isn’t too expensive and are versatile in a variety of ways. They’re also the most popular kind of roofing material for homes because they’re inexpensive, recyclable and easy to repair and replace.
Metal is one of the most modern materials for roofs. They’re also energy efficient and have a high fire resistance rating, and they’re tough to boot. More and more homeowners in California are switching from traditional to metal largely in part to these benefits.
Wood is expensive but a solid option for those who want an eye-catching shingle. However, they are not recommended in areas where there’s danger of fire.
Slate is superior in terms of being resistant to freezing and water conditions. They’re high-end roofing options but are very heavy and difficult to repair.
