Dealing With Common Roofing Issues

Although we want our roofs to last forever, the years of wear and tear and exposure to Mother Nature’s elements can cause common roofing issues. Recognizing signs that your roof is “expired”, will help you save both time and money in the future when it comes to repairing or replacing it.

Many homeowners neglect to inspect their roofline on a regular basis. Regular inspections of your home and roof can save you thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements. You can save money on your roof by making minor repairs. This will also help to prolong its lifespan.

You should immediately address any signs that indicate a roof problem around your home. Your common roof problem may have been present for some time. To avoid damage to your home’s interior and possibly a total roof replacement, repairs must be done quickly. 

These issues should be identified immediately

  • Water damage to the ceiling and walls. An external leak can cause extensive water damage to your home’s interior by the time it is visible. KCG Roofing and Carpentry can help you find the source of the water damage and repair it.
  • Granules for your downspout. Run-off is not a problem with a healthy roof. However, a roof that has been damaged or worn out will generate run-off. These granules will end up in your gutters. If you notice excessive granule runoff, it is an indication that your roof is starting to deteriorate. This must be addressed immediately to prevent further damage to your roof. KCG Roofing and Carpentry can help you assess the problem if you don’t have any experience with roof and shingle replacement.
  • No shingles. If you see dark patches on your roof, it is likely that the shingles have been damaged or are missing. It is only a matter of time until outside elements enter your home and cause additional damage, potentially costing you thousands in repairs. You should immediately take action if you notice that your shingles are missing, or need to be repaired.
  • Flashings that separate. A flashing is an enclosure around your chimney, vent, or any other protrusion on your roof. Flashings protect your roof from moisture by sealing around the openings. You can choose from rubber flashings or metal flashings. It is important to ensure that your roof protects against moisture. To prevent moisture from entering your home and causing damage to insulation and shingles, flashings must be replaced or repaired.
  • Clogged gutters. Clogged gutters can cause water and waste to back up onto your roof. This will lead to moisture pooling in low-lying areas. Water that sits on your roof for too long can cause damage to your shingles. Keep your gutters clear and clean by following a maintenance schedule.
