Common Causes Of Roof Failure

Roofs encounter many problems throughout their lifespan for various reasons. Some problems are unavoidable due to damaging storms and others can be prevented by simple maintenance. Different problems are worse than others and can cause major problems for your roof and even your home. So, what are some common causes of roof failure?

Poor installation:

If your roof has been installed improperly, more problems will be encountered and more frequently, costing you large sums of money that you were unprepared to pay. In order to find out whether or not your roof has been properly installed, give us a call to come out and inspect your roof.


When the elements strike, flashing cracks, or there was improper installation, roofs and shingles can become damaged. This paves a way for moisture to creep into the roof structure. The result is a mess of mold and rot. Make sure to regularly inspect your roof in order to catch these problems to head off any further damage, which leads us to our next point.

Poor maintenance:

Many roof problems start out small, with a broken shingle, debris on the roof, or an overhanging tree branch. If not corrected, these problems can turn catastrophic and cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. Make sure to have your roof regularly inspected so you can fix its problems while they are still small. This will save you a lot of time, money, and worry in the future.

If you have any questions about potential problems, or current problems, with your roof, would like to schedule an inspection, or are in need of a repair, contact our office at (918) 558-ROOF (7663).
