Anthony J. D’Angelo said, “When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves.” But what if the problem is not something that can be easily seen by the naked eye? After all, it’s incredibly difficult to keep track of the possible problems forming right above your head. However, whether you can see these problems or not, they will still end up affecting your daily life sooner or later so it’s better to search for it yourself sometimes.
While some problems may be as minor as a slightly worn shingle to a faultily installed part of the roof, they should all be addressed early on in order to save yourself from more hassle in the future. Which is why we’re here to give you a list of the most common problems you may encounter with your roof and how you can manage them.
Commonly seen near the flashings of the roof, especially ones that use single-ply membrane, there’s a huge possibility that the single membrane will contract and suffer from shrinkage. This problem can only be taken care of by roof repair.
Probably the most common of all and has the most cause. Rainwater and snow are the leading cause of moisture and decay that weakens and decreases the quality of the roof. Sometimes they are caused by improper installation as well. For this matter, leaks can appear in various parts of your roof and therefore needs to be repaired before it causes more damage.
