Common causes of roof damage
There are several factors that can lead to a damaged roof. They include extreme weather conditions such as heavy rains and hail, insects, a build-up of ice, snow, or other debris, and lack of proper maintenance. Below are some of the most common roof problems experienced by NW Washington DC residents and how BRAX Roofing can help with each.
- Damaged or missing shingles
Asphalt roof shingles are sometimes damaged by falling tree limbs, high winds, heavy rainfall, hail, or blistering caused by excessive heat. Failing to replace a missing shingle immediately means that your house will not be adequately protected from water damage the next time it rains, and in the long run, you might incur very costly damage.
Ensure that you check your roof for missing shingles after a storm and if there are any, the best remedy is to contact a professional roofing company immediately. An expert roofing contractor does not only replace the missing shingles, but they will also inspect your entire roof to identify other areas that require to be fixed.
- Clogged gutters and downspouts
The purpose of gutters and downspouts is to drain water from your roof and redirect it away from your foundation. Clogged gutters do not drain water properly, and when this water stands in the gutter systems for long, it causes the fascia boards holding them to deteriorate and rot, exposing your house to leaks. The common causes of clogged gutters and downspouts are a build-up of snow, leaves, and other debris, as well as neglect. If you are experiencing any problems with your gutters, it is advisable to get in touch with a roofing company for thorough cleaning and maintenance.
- Roof vent damage
Your roof vents can be easily damaged by hail, falling limbs or trees, or small animals. Damaged or smashed roof vents interfere with air circulation inside your attic and other ventilation spaces, leading to a heat build up inside your home. Lack of proper ventilation makes your interior spaces uncomfortable for your loved ones, and it can also cause your energy bills to skyrocket. It is therefore important that you contact a professional roofing company to assess the damage and replace your roof vents as soon as you spot a problem.
