As a roofing company catering to areas all over Pennsylvania, we have seen our share of roofing problems. Here are 5 that you need to watch out for and what you can do to repair/prevent them.
Clogged gutters can cause a lot of trouble if left unchecked. One of the major problems being water pooling which can back up into the roof system and lead to rot. While clogging cannot be avoided, you can prevent any damage from occurring by having your gutters checked regularly for detritus that collects. Consider installing screens in your gutters to keep larger debris from getting to your roof system.
Leakages are a roofing issue we are all familiar with. Cracks in the shingles, or a broken shingle can make way for water to deep into the interior walls and cause severe water damage. Which isn’t just aesthetically problematic but can harm the structural integrity of your home because of rotting. Not to mention the health hazard of mold formation.
Our highly recommended roof contractors can help you with a thorough inspection to check for any damage near your chimney, close to vents or in low areas of your roof that may not be easy to spot. These preventative measures can keep the leakage from spreading to the indies of your home.
Compromised insulation of your roofing systems can shorten its life expectancy and increase the likelihood of problems.

Rodents and Critters
Depending on where you live, small animals, birds, or insects may have access to your roof. And critters are likely to cause a lot of damage. If identified and addressed early on, you can shop them away with ease. But if you find some nesting for a long time, it is best to ask for professional help.
Ventilation is the most important part of your roof system because without it, your home and attic are at risk of mold, rot, and deterioration. Poor ventilation doesn’t just harm the structure, but can also make insulation difficult. Leading to higher energy usage. If you notice a sudden spike in energy bills, don’t blame your kids for leaving appliances on all night, but have a professional look at your ventilation system.
