Roof Damage

Discovering that your home or business has a leaky or damaged roof can be very discouraging; more so, if water has leaked inside and damaged the drywall, paint, insulation, carpet and personal items.

Factors that impact your decision to repair or replace your roof depends on the condition of the roof, primarily, by the age of your roof, the presence of adequate ventilation and the quality of the workmanship of the roofer who installed it.

There are several reasons why shingle roofs degrade to the point where replacing the roof is the only practical solution. Here is a list of the more common causes:

  • Damage from weather, limbs & foot traffic.
  • Deteriorated shingles & materials.
  • Use of inferior or improper roofing material.
  • Ice dams and wind driven rain & snow.
  • Breached roof penetration systems.
  • Inadequate attic space ventilation.
  • Improperly installed roofs.
  • Improperly installed facia & gutters.

Many people don't pay any attention to their roof until they find missing shingles in their yard, after a wind event, or discover a leak, after a rain or snow storm.

Others realize that their roof needs to be replaced when they examine their roof and see curled, cracked, lifted or brittle shingles. Those are just the more common examples that a roof is approaching the end of it's useful life.

By that time, attempts to repair a roof are, generally, futile, and will only delay the inevitable. Meanwhile, your home, your most valuable asset, will be at risk, leaving it vulnerable to water damage or worse: exposure to deadly mold growth in damp areas that may have formed as the result of water leakage or condensate from an inadequatly ventilated roof.

Examples Of Roof Damage

Missing shingles are easy to spot and are, usually, the first thing home owners notices after a storm. Unless their roof is severely compromised or old, a properly installed roof system should be able to sustain strong windy conditions for years. Because we exceed the general installation requirements, our roofs are warranteed by CertainTeed to resist blow-off due to wind velocities, including gusts, up to a maximum of 130 mph during the first ten years.

Sagging sheeting is one of the more serious problems: damage to the roof's deck. It is, generally, caused by moisture that is trapped in the attic space, due to insufficient ventilation or a leak sustained over a long period of time.

Not so obvious, however, are the problems caused by poor workmanship, such as in the pictures showing popped nails, missing ice & water guard at the eaves and shingles that were not secured properly.

The following pictures represent a few examples of the typical roof problems that a home owner may encounter.

Free Estimates

Estimates for a re-roof or a "new-build" roof are free, but not for repairs. We do not quote or install roof-overs.

When you contact us and request a quote, we will tell you what we will do and schedule a time for us to do a 'site survey' of your roof. You don't have to be present, when we do that, though. (Just tie-up your killer dog, crazy neighbor, etc.):

This is what we will do to prepare your quote:

  • Take pictures of your roof;
  • Measure your roof;
  • Make a sketch of it;
  • Create a CAD drawing of your roof;
  • Develop a bill of materials (BOM);
  • Calculate the total price of the job;
  • Prepare a statement of work (SOW); and
  • Prepare a written quote.

Next, Rick will contact you to arrange for a convenient time to deliver our quote, SOW, references, show material samples and answer any questions that you may have. (In fairness to you and us, we do not provide telephone, fax, email or mail quotes.)
