Shingle Roof Repair
When it comes to roof types, shingles are one of the more popular options among homeowners. It’s not difficult to understand why. Shingles are durable, they last a long time and they provide a unique aesthetic component to the home’s look, often helping to improve curb appeal. However, shingle roofs will experience problems without regular maintenance. Quality Roofing provides a number of shingle repair services to homeowners in order to help maintain their shingle roofs for as long as possible.Contact Quality Roofing
Here are some of the shingle repair services that Quality Roofing performs:
Replace Damaged Shingles
Shingles can experience damage; they are, after all, exposed to all of the elements. Everything from debris blown into the roof by the wind to small animals running across can cause damage to shingles. Punctures, tears or breaks in shingles cause the underlayment of the roof to be exposed, which can lead to water leaking in. Any damaged shingles should be replaced immediately.
Replace Roof Vents
If the flashing of the roof wasn’t correctly layered, then the roof is going to depend on proper sealing to prevent water seepage. If a vent has been improperly installed with the proper overlap procedure, then sealant is necessary to cover up the error. However, the sealant can deteriorate over time. While more sealant can be added to prevent leaks, a more permanent solution would be to replace the vent and have it installed correctly.
If the flashings on the roof begin to separate, additional sealant will need to be applied to prevent water leaks.
Flashing needs to be properly overlapped in order to ensure that the roof is waterproof. If it is not properly overlapped, then no amount of sealant is going to offer a permanent waterproofing solution. The best way to ensure that the roof will not be vulnerable to leaks is by replacing the flashing and making sure that it is overlapped correctly when installed.
Replace Entire Roof
Sometimes the damage to a shingled roof will require it to be replaced entirely. One way to tell if the roof needs to be replaced is if the granules on the shingles have begun to wear off. This means that the asphalt surfacing is breaking down and needs to be replaced. Fortunately, there are many roof replacement options. If replacement is necessary, Quality Roofing will work with you to determine which type of roof fits your needs, style and budget.Common Roof Repair Problems
