If your roof becomes damaged and water starts to leak through the roofing to the roof deck problems can arise quickly. Depending on the type and thickness of the roof deck will be just one factor of how resilient the deck is from water damage. Water may get below the shingles or tiles only to evaporate quickly or could sit there and dangerous black mold could begin to grow. In heavier prolonged rain storms the water can soak the decking and find its way inside your home saturating insulation, joist, sheetrock, and more. It could take weeks or months before you realize that your roof is leaking and by that time serious damage could have already be done. It is for this reason that it is a wise idea to have your roof inspected on a regular basis, especially after severe thunderstorms that you may have reason that your roofing could have been damaged. If you know your roof is leaking do not delay, call us to repair your roof and prevent more costly damage.
Fix Vent Boots and Pipe Flashing
Your shingles or tiles could be in perfect condition yet water could still leak into your home via vents, skylights, chimneys, and other areas on the roof. One of the most common repairs made in Waco, Texas is replacing the rubber roof vent flashing. These rubber roof vents can dry rot and become brittle and no longer prevent water from running down a roof plumbing vent and entering your home. We also commonly find roof vents, skylights, whirlybirds, ridge vents and more may have been improperly flashed or shingled. We can identify poor roof installation practices, rotten wood, dry rotted rubber boots, and poorly installed or missing flashing. Give us a call to come inspect your roof and give you an estimate for any roof repairs needed.
Shingle or Tile Damage
The second the wind blows there is a potential for shingles or tiles of your roof being blown off or recieving other damage. Everytime it rains a shingled roof will loose a small amount of granules. Over time you will find that in the bottom of your gutters will begin to fill up with them leading to clogged gutters eventually. Causes of shingle granule loss can be from many sources such as heavy rain, ice, hail, hail, foot traffic, improper installation, or even defective shingles. Tile roofs can be damaged by all of the same sources as with asphalt or fiberglass shingles. In addition tile shingles can also be damaged by extreme temperature changes causing them to crack. As with any roof we suggest that you have your roof inspected on a regular basis to avoid leaks that could be costly to be repaired.
