Common Signs That A Home Needs Roof Repair
There are a few common factors that we have learned over the years that indicate a roof needs repair. While homeowners will often see leaking, you can regularly check your roof for less obvious signs.
Water and moisture are red flags and can lead to extensive leaking into the home. These often come from damaged flashing, broken shingles or damaged roof vents. When it comes to water seepage and moisture there is little time to spare, call a professional right away.
If you’ve noticed that the roof is blistering, or that there is clear damage to the shingles, the roof needs repair. A blistering roof is a sign of trapped moisture that can lead to mold, mildew, and rot. Damaged shingles such as a cracked or missing shingles are signs of general deterioration.
Our experts can help you decide which repairs are your top priority after conducting an inspection of your roof. Find out what the damage you’ve noticed means for your home. Additionally, there are many opportunities for addressing a needed repair. Often our staff will strive to provide you with a number of solutions so you can plan, schedule and budget according to what suits you best.
South Carolina storms can rush in unexpectedly and wreak havoc. Flashing will help your roof hold up through years of stormy weather. As a preventative measure, flashing is put into most newer homes.
Older homes may require the installment of flashing, and there are still times when flashing needs some general maintenance. What flashing does is help direct water flow. An exceptionally important feature for shingled roofs.
Only professionals should install, repair, or maintain flashing because of its vital function. Contact the best roofing contractors in Anderson, SC for help with your flashing. We work with both metal and plastic materials so you can have what works best for your home.
Roof or carpentry repairs
Clogged gutters, deteriorated pipe boots, and rotted fascia are all common residential roofing problems. Given the humidity and extreme weather of Anderson, you should expect to have some necessary roofing repairs.
When it comes to gutters or downspouts, contact a professional before these minor issues cause major damage. A clogged gutter can be full of a sludge that weights down the entire system. Additionally clogged or iced over gutters can lead to fascia mold and even invite in termites!
Pipe boots are another concern that many homeowners let slide. Too often deteriorated pipe boots lead to leaks that damage the internal carpentry of the roof. Don’t let these repairs go undone; it only seems like a “minor leak”, but these type issues are rarely “minor”. If you notice leaking within your roof, it can quickly become a major issue.
When it comes to rotted fascia or carpentry repairs you’ll want to have a professional roofing contractor inspect the damage before deciding to make any repairs. There is the opportunity to replace only the damaged portions of the roof. To evaluate the possibility of repairs you need a contractor to assess the quality of the remaining wood, and structure.
When To Consider a Roof Replacement
Replacing a roof or re-roofing is a serious matter for homeowners. It can lead to a team of roofers working on your home for days or even weeks depending on the size of the home. Additionally, the project must work around some aspects of the weather.
If a homeowner happens to hire the wrong contractor who doesn’t know how to handle all the elements of re-roofing, they lose their entire investment. What’s worse is that roof damage can lead to significant problems within the home too.
Before you decide to replace your roof, consider these aspects:
- Are repairs an option?
- How old is your roof?
- What is the state of your shingles?
- Do you have dark streaks?
To address the above considerations, if repairs are an option, you almost always want to opt for that choice. Repairs will always be more affordable, but a repair can also keep your roof in good condition for many years to come.
Additionally, if your roof is less than 20 years old, you probably don’t need to replace it. If your roof has not had significant storm or infestation damage, it should last you at least 20 years.
When evaluating your shingles look for signs of curling, cracking, and bald spots. These warning signs show what might be underlying problems that need correction.
Finally, let’s address dark streaks. Because Anderson, SC is in a moist but also a warm region and gets plenty of sunlight, it’s probably moss. Dark streaks are the sign of algae and are what initially sparks the interest of termites. You can clean and remove algae without re-roofing, but, if it is not caught early, sometimes the interior is too far gone.
Tornadoes, hurricanes, and very wet climates all fit into South Carolina. Every homeowner in Anderson knows that storm preparation is a must, but what about protecting their roof?
You can help guard your home against storm damage, including directing rainfall with flashing. Call a professional residential roofing contractor from Family Roofing in Anderson, SC to help you prevent storm damage.
Flashing repair, replacement, and installation is where most people start storm preparations. Afterward, homeowners should turn their attention to their gutter systems. A heated gutter system can help reduce the chances of ice dams. Other gutter tools such as grates or screens can help keep water flowing without clogs.
After the storm hits, there is always the chance of significant damage. Even if you were able to keep water off your roof, there’s no guarantee that foreign objects such as trees or power lines didn’t fall near your home.
In these cases, Family Roofing offers storm damage repair services for homeowners including soffit and fascia repair. For extensive damage, our expert roofers can manage the construction of repairing a roof’s frame. There are always options to help your home recover from a recent storm, no matter how extensive the damage may be.
