Here Are the Most Common Types of Roof Repairs You May Need

by Floyd Dunn

Homeowners often don't realize the extent of damage that can be done to their roofs until it is too late. That's why it is important to know about the most common types of roof repairs you may need for your home. Here are some of the most common roof problems that you want to have repaired as soon as possible.

Roof Leaks

The most common causes of leaks are from a shingle or tile that is either missing or no longer functioning. This can be due to age and wear or to damage from weather conditions such as hail or wind. These are often minor leaks that can easily be repaired by a professional residential roofing service. 

Missing Shingles

If you have missing shingles, water can seep through the seal between shingles and into your home, causing leaks and water damage. Damaged shingles can also lead to mold growth. A roof repair service can inspect your roof for damaged or missing shingles and do the needed repairs.

Granule Loss

Granule loss is the most common type of roof repair and is caused by a number of different factors. Granules are the small pieces of mineral that are attached to the shingle. They protect the underlying material from weather damage, ultraviolet rays, and water penetration. 

Granule loss isn't necessarily an indication that you have a serious problem with your roof, but it does mean that you should have your roof inspected by a professional before it gets worse. Many homeowners will only notice granule loss when they see patches of their roofs without any granules at all. This can happen when shingles get old or brittle, which makes them more likely to break off during storms or high winds.

Storm Damage

If you live in an area prone to storms and high winds, then you may have experienced storm damage. If you do, it's important that you get this fixed as soon as possible. The last thing you want is for a storm to cause further damage to your home or business. 

Roof Flashing Damage

If flashing becomes damaged or broken, it allows water to get inside your home where the roof meets the rest of the structure. This type of repair should be handled immediately because this could potentially cause significant damage inside your home if left untreated for too long.

It is crucial to have these roof repairs done as soon as you notice any damage. Contact a roofing repair service to prevent further damage to your home due to these types of problems.

The Two C's

Welcome to a blog about the two C's. The two C's, as you might have already guessed are construction and contractors. These words are closely related. "Construction" refers to the art and science of building something. That something could be anything from a shed to a sidewalk. "Contractors" are the people who do the building. There are general contractors who do all sorts of building work, and then there are specialists who do work such as plumbing, electrical work, and drywall. Stop by and read a few articles when you have the time, and we promise you'll learn more about these two C's.
