Roofing repairs are essential in keeping your home dry and protected from the elements. Hazardous weather, especially in Florida, can cause a number of damages to your home. Repairing these damages require precise attention by someone who can guarantee a successful restoration, and peace of mind. Let us rejuvenate your roof and secure your home’s integrity.
Moisture and Leaks
The most common problem associated with roofing repairs is moisture and leakage. Though there are a number of possible causes, built-up roofs (BUR) most commonly incur leaks near the flashing in a roof’s valleys. The membrane may have an interruption at this point where, if improperly accounted for, water can permeate.
Shingle blow-offs occur most frequently when flashing is installed poorly. High winds and extreme weather conditions can also contribute to shingles being blown off of a roof, though with proper installation, blow-offs are unlikely and should be infrequent.
Billowing and Tenting
Wind and inadequately cured seams can lead to billowing of a roof. The uplift caused by moisture seeping in through seams and wind resistance being minimized compromises the security of the structure and can tent the flashings, further damaging the protective membrane.
Improper or blocked drainage, roofs with level problems, and dead-level (flat) roofs are at risk of incurring pooling areas of water, which can damage the membrane.
Punctures and Penetration
Damage from construction and additions can cause punctures to the membrane, leading to additional problems after natural expansion and contraction. Puncture areas sometimes occur as a result of natural disaster or abusive weather, especially to more thinly constructed roofs.
Pulling on flashings in the valleys of your roof is due to shrinkage of your membrane. Shrinkage occurs commonly when poor materials are used, construction is not top-notch, or the design of your roof is less than suitable for your needs.
Blistering commonly occurs when a membrane is not properly torched. The surface damage is not always worth repair, though large blisters should be fixed to avoid further problems.
