What Are the Most Common Reasons for Roofers’ Service Calls?

You can’t put off repairing your roof because problems with your roofing system can quickly escalate. You must contact your roofer as soon as you notice something wrong with your roof.

Here are common reasons why roofers are called to repairs.

Flashing Damage

Flashings are metal pieces under the shingles that give them extra protection. You can also find them on the fixtures around your roof like the chimney. They can allow water to enter your home if they crack due to elements or neglect.  

Storm Damage

Harsh weather can send debris like tree branches into your roof, puncturing it and creating leaks. A leaking roof, when not addressed immediately, can cause damage to your attic and ceiling. You may also have to deal with mold and mildew growth, which can spread throughout your home. You can minimize incidents like these by trimming the trees near your home. 

Poor Ventilation

Poor ventilation will allow condensation to build up and compromise the structural integrity of your roof. It can also lead to mold growth. Consider getting a new ventilation system for your roof if you’re frequently dealing with this problem. 

Damaged Gutters

Keeping your gutters clean can prevent numerous roofing issues. Water will settle in clogged or damaged gutters, which will weaken your roof. Regularly have your gutters cleaned, or consider investing in a gutter protection system to keep them clog free.
