Common Roofing Problems You Shouldn’t Ignore

The roof is one of the most important parts of any building. If it is experiencing problems, it needs to be repaired right away. At EverGuard Roofing, our team of experts can professionally assess and repair any issues with your Albuquerque roof.

Roof Leaks

A roof is an important structural part of your home and thus, you shouldn’t ignore any problems that might arise, nor any damage to it. These issues should be repaired as soon as possible to maintain the integrity of your roof as well as longevity. Roofing problems can occur due to a variety of factors, including weather and age. While some problems cannot be prevented, regular inspections of your roof will help you identify problems early. Inadequate repair work or replacement will eventually lead to further damage, so call the professionals at EverGuard Roofing for high-quality roofing service.

If your roof has a vaulted ceiling, you should take a look at the flashing. This material protects the creases in fixtures and preserves venting pipes under the roofing materials. If the flashing is damaged or loose, it will expose fixtures to water and cause structural damage. If you notice any of these problems, contact EverGuard Roofing to have the problem rectified.

Missing or Broken Shingles or Tiles

Missing or broken shingles and tiles are warning signs that there is a problem with your roof. This issue may occur due to high winds, torrential rains, or other inclement weather which can dislodge shingles.

While it may seem like an inconsequential issue, missing shingles are a sign that your roof may be approaching its end of life. They also expose the area of the roof to the weather and cause water to seep in, which can cause other shingles to get damaged. In some cases, you may not need a complete replacement, but if one part is missing, the entire roof could be prone to leaking. When a roof leaks, water can seep through and damage the interior of the house. This can occur even if the shingles are not broken, so if you notice a leak, make sure to contact experienced professionals to fix it. 

Damages Caused by Different Extreme Temperatures

Extreme temperatures can have a severe effect on roofing materials. The changes between hot and cold weather can cause the material to expand and contract dramatically. Repeated expansion and contraction can eventually cause cracks, which can lead to leaks or water damages. Therefore, it is important to consider the effects of different temperatures when choosing a roofing material.

The heat of the summer can be also harsh on roofing materials. The heat causes them to expand during the day and contract during the night. Even the newer roofing systems are not immune to these effects. Hot summer temperatures can damage all types of roofing. During the daytime, the temperature can reach up to 160 degrees, which is particularly damaging to asphalt shingles.
