Common Roofing Problems to Look For
When your roof is damaged, you may feel like you are in a unique situation that you hope can be resolved.
However, most types of roof damage are actually fairly common. This is very good news, as you can be confident that a roofer has solved these problems in the past and will be able to again. With that said, here are a few common roofing problems to look for.
Poor installation is, unfortunately, a common problem. Many roofers without real experience pop up looking for work and make installation mistakes that an experienced professional would not make. Have a roofer come take a look to see if your roof was properly installed.
Leaks are one of the most common types of damage. They may just seem like a nuisance at first, but they can lead to serious damage like dry rot. As soon as you spot a leak, you should have the damage assessed and repaired.
Ponding water is fairly common on flat roofs. This can be a sign of an issue under the surface or can be due to a clogged drainage system.
Poor ventilation is something many homeowners experience, and this can lead to ice dams, moisture problems, and high energy bills.
The list of common roofing problems is a long one and includes many others not listed here. If you have experienced roof damage, chances are a roofer has seen it in the past and knows how to fix it.
