The Most Common Roofing Problems Homeowners Encounter


Miami Roofing ContractorYour home’s roofing is constantly exposed to weather and the elements, and it’s possible for your roofing to sustain serious damages at nearly any time. The damage could be obvious or completely unnoticeable, and either way, the damage can quickly grow and spread. Even the smallest problems with your roofing will quickly turn into major problems for your home, so you need to have repairs performed as soon as possible after any problems have developed.

At Affordable Contractors, INC, our professional Miami roofing contractors can provide you with prompt and professional repairs when you encounter any problems with your roofing. But if you’re able to recognize these problems early on, you’ll have a much better chance of being able to contact a professional before they get out of hand.

To help you identify problems with your roofing, we’ve put together a short list of some of the most common roofing problems:

Roof Leaks

Any time your Miami home’s roof has a leak, it’s a major problem, especially considering the amount of sporadic rain that we get in this area. Leaks in your roofing can be caused by a number of different problems, but the most likely are joint damage and flashing damage.

Joints

Joints are what we call the areas on your roof where two parts of the roofing meet, like at two sloped sections of roofing, or between the roofing and a chimney. These parts of the roof are highly susceptible to leaks.

Flashing

Your Miami roofing is also vulnerable wherever flashing is used. Flashing is a name for a number of different waterproofing materials, usually used where any comes up and out of your roofing.

Flashing is used to waterproof the roofing around chimneys, pipes, or vent stacks to prevent water from seeping into these areas. Over the years, however, the flashing can become a weak spot where rain is able to get beneath your shingles. If you’re able to catch problems with your flashing early enough, it can easily be resealed, but if it’s left untreated, it can turn into a very serious leak.

Weather Damage

Your roofing is specifically designed to stand up to weather and the elements, but as the first line of defense that your Miami home has against mother nature, it’s the first thing to be damaged.

If a shingle is knocked loose during a storm, wind can slip underneath it and pull it up. After that small incident, many other parts of your roofing will be left more vulnerable to damage. If you suspect that your roofing was damaged during a storm, call our professionals as soon as possible for repairs.
