Factors That Can Lead to Roof Damage
Several factors can lead to roof damage, including:
This is the main factor that leads to roof damage, and we cannot emphasize enough why you need to work with professionals. A poor roof installation means that your roof will start needing repairs pretty early, and you may be forced to replace the entire roof sooner than you may be prepared to. Working with a reputable roofing-company ensures that your roof stands the test of time.
Lack of Maintenance
Proper maintenance is essential for your roof’s longevity. Most individuals do not think much about their roofs after the installation, and they will only think about the roof when they notice a problem like leaking. You do not have to inspect your roof every day. On the contrary, an annual inspection will suffice and make a significant difference. Get a professional roofer to inspect your roof because they will ensure that even the most minor crack is fixed before it becomes a bigger problem.
As with everything else, your roof will deteriorate over time and require frequent repairs. If you have had your roof for an extended period and you believe it has served its purpose, you can start shopping around for new roof options. Call us, and our professional roofer will provide you with an estimate and recommend some of the best and long-lasting roofing-options.
You need flashing because it ensures that the seals between the roof corners and sections stay watertight. However, when it is ripped off or damaged, rainwater will get in, damaging your roof further and causing leaks. During the yearly roof inspections, ensure that the flashing is also inspected.
Hail, rain, and wind can take a toll on your roof. For instance, high winds could rip off your shingles, while rainfall will cause leaks and holes. Both will make your home prone to more damage.

The Roof Replacement Process
If you are a homeowner in need of roofing-services, specifically , there are a couple of things you should know before the project starts. Re-roofing is both messy and complex and will interfere with your regular everyday life. Our roofers will do their best to ensure that they cause you very minimal disturbance. We will also ensure that your exterior property experiences no damage. You can also be guaranteed that we leave the worksite clean once we are through with your roofing-project.
It is worth mentioning that because there is a lot of hammering involved in this process, it is likely that some debris may fall into your attic. Therefore, it would be best to cover any items in the attic or move them out of the attic during the project to ensure they are well-protected. While it is unlikely that all that hammering will dislodge your paintings or pictures from the wall, it helps to take precautions, especially if they are valuable.
There are a couple of stages during a re-roofing project. Usually, if your project is being carried out during perfect weather conditions, it should take about two to five days to complete it if your house is average-sized. On the other hand, if the weather is not great, the project may take much longer to be complete. It is also worth noting that if the roof is complex or large, the project will take a long time to complete. Discussed are some of the steps.
The first step, as with everything else, is preparation. Depending on where you live, you may need to have a permit to replace your roof. In that case, it would help to take care of this in advance. Once that is done, your yard and house have to be protected from potential construction damage.
Removing Existing Roof Material
This is the next step, and it has to be done to check the state of your roof deck. When done by professionals, this process should take a few hours. Once the materials are removed, your decking is inspected, and if any problems are found, they are repaired. The time taken to repair will vary depending on how severe the damage is. The roof will be covered with protective materials once the damages are fixed. This will then be covered with roofing-felt layer.
Once the above process is complete, the roofing-installation begins. Afterward, the crew will inspect the roof to confirm that the installation is perfectly done. Once they have verified this, they will clean up.
