Roofers who cut corners, whether with the use of materials or poor workmanship, are far more likely
to produce continuing problems. Your best bet is to contract a team of roofers like Sunrise City
Roofing who stand behind their work. In doing so, your roof is bound to last longer. What’s more,
you’ll save a great deal of money in the process.
Leaks and Moisture
It’s the usual offenders (wind, rain, hail, humidity, and debris) who allow moisture to get trapped
under layers of roofing, resulting in leaks, mold, and rot. Your number one defense against the
elements is high-quality roofing.
Poorly Installed Flashing
The maintenance known as “flashing” seals the area where your roof has been pierced, as in the
case of vent pipes, sky lights, chimneys, and heating and cooling systems. Improperly installed
flashing can result in open seams and laps while reducing your roof’s longevity.
Clawing and Gnawing Animals
Left unchecked, critters, birds, and insects can do a surprising amount of damage to your roof. It’s
best to get rid of them before they get the opportunity.
Water that sits or ponds on your roof is a sure sign of eventual problems. Typical causes include
improper drainage of gutters and HVAC units, as well as improper original roofing. Again, the
likelihood of facing an issue like ponding water is greatly reduced when the job of roofing is done
right the first time.
Punctures and Penetrations
Wind and humidity can lead to the eventual puncturing of roofing material. Any sealant or flashing
that’s been added needs to be inspected regularly in order to avoid large, costly repair.
Simple maintenance of overhanging trees can help preserve the integrity of your roof. You’d be
surprised at the damage that can be done to the protective top layer of your roof when trees become
overgrown and begin to interfere with the structure of your property.
Built up heat and moisture can do damage to rafters, sheathing, shingles, and insulation. Roof and
attic ventilation is essential to maximizing the strength of your roof’s structure.
