The Most Common Roofing Problems (And How to Solve Them)

The most common roofing problems and how to solve them

Your roofing is the first line of defense that your home has against weather and the elements, but it's also the first part of your home to be damaged by those things. When your roofing is damaged, it leaves many other parts of your home vulnerable to more damage, so it's very important that you have the problems repaired as soon as possible. However, it's often difficult for homeowners to tell when their roofing has sustained damage.

At Auchly Roofing, our Missouri roofing contractors can provide you with high quality roofing repairs whenever you need them. The earlier that you can recognize the need for repairs, the better chance you'll have at minimizing the damage. To help you identify these problems early, we've put together a list of some of the most common roofing problems:

Roof Leaks

No matter what kind of roofing material you have installed at your Missoula home, a leak is one of the most crucial problems that you can encounter. Roof leaks could be cause by a number of different things themselves, but the two most common causes of a leak are joint damage and flashing damage.

  • Joints are located between the roofing and the chimney, or or at the meeting point of two roof slopes. These parts of your roofing are especially vulnerable to leaks. However, those leaks are not very difficult to fix as long as they're caught early enough.
  • Flashing is used wherever something sticks up through the roof, like a chimney, pipes, or vent stacks to protect against leaks in these areas. Over the years, parts of your roof that have flashing can become weak spots where rain is able to get underneath your shingles. If the problem is caught early enough, this area can easily be resealed. If it isn't taken care of soon enough, it might require extensive repairs.

Weather Damage

Your roofing is constantly exposed to weather and the elements, so it will be damaged by them at some point. Weather can take a huge toll on shingles over time, and after shingles have been moderately damaged, they'll get much worse very quickly. If you believe your roofing may have been damaged during a storm, call our professionals at soon as possible to have an inspection performed.

Preventing Problems

The best way to keep your roofing in great condition at all times to have regular roofing inspections performed. Our professionals recommend that you have your roofing inspected once every three years. We'll be able to find and eliminate any problems that have developed before they cause major damage to your home.
