Frecuent roofing Problems

Roof Leaks

Roof leaks are some of the most common roofing problems. Faulty shingles, improper installation, or weather damage can cause roof leaks. If you suspect or notice a roof leak, call a trusted roofer like Allied Construction to ensure roofing experts fix it quickly and correctly.

Our technicians fix roof leaks by patching up any holes, replacing faulty shingles or flashing, and installing a waterproof membrane on the exterior of your roof. Before we start working on your roofing system, our technicians will assess the situation to determine what they need to do.

Clogged Gutters

Gutter clogs are common issues that can lead to water buildup and subsequent problems in your home. To avoid drainage problems due to clogged gutters, ensure you conduct regular inspections for debris and leaves accumulation. You can get rid of these materials with a ladder and garden trowel. Alternatively, you can clean the gutter with a hose. Additionally, you can hire Allied Construction professionals to do the job safely.

Age-Related Damage

Over time, roofing materials can deteriorate due to exposure to the elements. If you notice bald spots, cracked shingles, or other problems related to age on your roof, consider replacing the entire roof with a more durable material. Our technicians will help you choose the right one and ensure proper installation.

Shingle Damage

Strong winds, hail, falling branches, and other weather elements can damage roof shingles. If your roof is missing shingles or large sections are damaged, our technicians will replace the entire area to ensure no leakage or further damage.

Poor Ventilation

Poor ventilation can cause moisture to build up in the attic, leading to mold, mildew growth, and damage to the roof. The solution is to install proper ventilation. Our technicians can assess your property’s ventilation to determine the best solution. We can remove mold or mildew or install the ventilation afresh.

Tree Damage

Trees can damage the roof when branches fall on it. Also, they can rub against the roofing system and wear away the protective layers. The solution is to remove any branches that are in danger of falling and trim back any branches that are in contact with the roof. Our technicians can do this to ensure you don’t require our emergency roofing services when a tree falls on your roofing system during a storm.

Hail Damage

Hail can cause dents, cracks, and holes in the roof. The solution is to inspect the roof for damage after a hail storm and repair it if you find any damage. We offer professional roof inspection and repair services for residential and commercial clients. Our technicians can visit your property carefully and extensively assess it. We’ll report the damage we notice, provide an upfront estimate, and fix the damage with your approval.

Improper roof installation can cause several roofing problems, including leaks, poor ventilation, and shingle damage. The solution is to have experts install the roof. Our qualified professionals can visit your property to inspect the roof and determine whether it has installation issues. They will recommend a fresh installation if they conclude you had a shoddy installation job. That way, you will fix your current roofing problems and enjoy better protection from weather elements for an extended period.

Flashing Problems

Flashing is the material that seals the joints between the roof and other parts of the house, such as the chimney or vent pipes. If the flashing is faulty, it can cause leaks. The solution is to repair or replace the flashing as necessary. At Allied Construction, we have experts who inspect your flashing and recommend the best action to fix the problem. We’ll ensure you have a properly working roofing system by fixing your flashing problems correctly.

Ponding Water

Ponding water occurs when water collects on the roof and does not drain properly. And this can damage the roof and even cause leaks. The solution is to ensure that the roofing system has proper drainage and remove any debris that is blocking the drainage system. Call us if you notice ponding water on your roof, and our roofers will help you fix the issue.

Critter Damage

Animals such as squirrels, raccoons, and birds can damage the roof by digging holes or building nests. Such activities can cause leaks that may need repair. To fix this problem, remove any nests or animals from the roof. Also, repair any damage that they have occurred. Our technicians can visit your home or commercial property to inspect the roof for critter damage. If they notice it, they will explain and provide the necessary repair.

Age

Over time, your roof will naturally deteriorate and require repair or replacement. The solution is to have qualified experts regularly inspect the roof and repair or replace it when necessary.
