Your business premise or home cannot meet your needs without having a proper roof on it. Many people fail to understand that installation of the roof is not everything to keeping it in good condition. It needs to have regular inspections and maintenance, which will help in detecting and identifying any developing problems that can interfere with the integrity of your roof. These inspections are best done by a professional.
A well-maintained roof will serve you best and longer than one that is fair to poorly maintained. To avoid roof replacements that can be costly, you need to be on the lookout for the following signs that you need to repair your roof:
- Cracking and tenting
- Water damage and leaks
Cracking and tenting
Your roofing materials may start to bow or tent with time exposing the underneath materials to water and strong wind. The rest of the roof can be exposed to such harsh weather conditions especially if the flashing or shingles are weak or were not laid properly. The wind can blow the tented shingles off your roof and leave the base materials uncovered. Most of the cheap roofing materials begin to warp in hot climates due to excessive exposure to the hot sun. Asphalt shingles are the weakest and most vulnerable during the hot climates as they bend easily in the heat, and the wind easily blows them away. Professionals advise homeowners living in hotter places to use roofing materials such as slate tiles and clay tiles because they are resistant to strong wind and heat.
Water damage and leaks
A rainstorm can result in water damage, which can eventually cause other problems such as wood bowing, mildew, mold or possibly roof collapse.
Although it is normal to find debris on the roof, the shape of your roof can determine the quantity of debris that accumulates on it. Some of the debris you can easily find in the valleys between your roof angles includes trash, branches, tree leaves and pine needles. The sap that the pine needles contain can easily leak onto the shingles causing a sticky mess.
You should hire roofing professionals immediately when you start seeing the above signs to avoid major roof problems later. Professional roofers have skill in handling problems in different types of roofs.
