Repairing Gutters/ Maintaining Drainage

Your home’s roof and gutters serve many purposes. They swiftly remove any water accumulated along your roof line and direct it away from your house by sending it down the downspouts so it can drain a safe distance away. The majority of gutter problems arise from a lack of routine maintenance and cleaning. Your gutters may overflow and possibly become detached from your roof due to leaves, branches, and other debris that collects in them. This leaves the fascia board of your roof exposed and prone to early deterioration. You must get your gutters cleaned out at least twice a year, but preferably every 3 months, to avoid needing roof repairs as a result of poor gutters and drainage.

Replacing Damaged Shingles

Overexposure to the sun, natural disasters, and physical components like downed tree branches can all cause shingles to deteriorate over time. Within the lifespan of your roof, one or more of the following shingle repairs will more than likely be necessary:

  1. Granule loss
  2. Splitting
  3. Blistering
  4. Lifting
  5. Shrinking
  6. Breaking

These shingle problems can become major issues if roof repairs are not done right away, allowing water to seep in beneath or around them. The good news is that placing shingles is an easy roof repair as long as the rest of your roof is still in good condition.

Fixing Improperly Installed Flashing

Roof flashing, also known as a drip edge, along your roofline aids in preventing water from running below your shingles when installed correctly. To prevent water leaks, metal roof flashing may also be installed around your windows, chimneys, and vents. Water may leak beneath the roofing material if the flashing is not tightly attached to its mounting surface. The components of your roof may decay as a result of incorrect installation, requiring major roof repairs to fix the problem.

Improving Ventilation

As the underlying components of your roof can decay when there is inadequate ventilation, this type of roof repair is vital. Poor roof ventilation is more likely to occur in areas that are exposed to changing seasons and temperature fluctuations, but regardless of the environment, mold and mildew problems, high energy expenses, deterioration, and even leaks will result if ventilation is not improved.
