Common Roof Issues
While roofs can last a really long time, they certainly don’t last forever. If you live in a climate with occasional severe weather storms, you’ll also face damage before your roof’s expected lifespan is up. Here are some common roof issues and what to do about them to make your roof as good as new again (for more information, contact us!).
Improperly installed roofing material
This happens if the person you hired to do the job wasn’t trained well, tended to cut corners, or was in a big hurry. Roofing material that is improperly installed will be more prone to damage, will come loose and possibly fall off, and will allow water to leak into your attic. This will inevitably cause mold, rot, allow entry for insect and pests, and cause expensive damage to your roof. If you suspect that your roof wasn’t installed correctly, get a professional to come check it out.
