Most Common Roofing Problems--And How To Fix Them

Man fixing a roof

Your roof is the most essential aspect of your home. It provides protection from the wind and rain, and it can help you cut down on heating and cooling costs year-round. If it is not kept in top condition, however, it can be a source of real inconvenience and even damage to your homes interior.

As a homeowner, you become responsible for the regular inspection, maintenance, and care of your roof. While you may not be able to perform maintenance and repairs yourself, there are some things you should know about possible problems with your roof that you could experience. In uncovering these potential problems, we’ll also provide you with helpful tips on how you can avoid disrepair and installation problems that can lead to damage inside your home. Below are some common roofing problems that homeowners experience, as well as what you can do to avoid these issues.

  1. Substandard workmanship. If your roof has recently been repaired or installed, and you are experiencing leaking, compromised areas along your roofline and other damages to your home via your roof, the cause is most likely substandard workmanship. Do your part to avoid unnecessary repair and replacement by checking out the contractors that you intend to work with ahead of time. Do they have favorable reviews? Do they come highly recommended by someone you know? Most importantly, do they offer workmanship warranties? The more you know about who you are hiring, the less likely it is that you’ll run into these issues when hiring someone you can genuinely trust.

  2. Poor maintenance schedules. If you’ve been living in your home for several years, this one’s on you. However, if you have recently acquired a property that is in a state of disrepair, the best thing you can do is call Len’s Roofing at 941-896-7897 and set up a free inspection. Maintenance now may prevent more significant issues from occurring in the future. If your roof has not been inspected recently, get back on track and start making appointments for this to take place. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; do what you can to prevent more extensive damages, and you’ll save yourself both time and money.

  3. Weak or compromised materials. At times, contractors will look for ways to save money on operating costs, and quite often they might use materials that aren’t considered durable in extreme weather conditions. These roofing materials will break down quicker than you would like them to, leaving you with more repair and more work needed. You get what you pay for; here at Len’s Roofing, we use premium materials that are designed to withstand the Florida elements. You’ll save yourself money in the long run without having to pay for additional repairs.

  4. Leakage and excess moisture. Leaks are among the most common problems for homeowners; these leaks can be the most damaging when it comes to maintaining the value of your home. Leaks can occur around flashings, in the valleys, and in areas where shingles have weakened or been removed completely by the weather. If you notice areas of weakness along your roof, or you are experiencing water stains and leakage inside your home, contact Len’s Roofing immediately to assess the damage and determine what is needed for repair.

  5. Wind-related issues. If you do experience loss, this opens your roof and your house to a whole host of potential problems if not promptly addressed. Contact Len’s Roofing for a free inspection. Our professionals can correctly assess the damage to your home and determine what the next best steps will be for repair or replacement.
