Pechacek’s General Contracting, a top roofing contractor, receives many roofing questions from homeowners. One of the most common questions is about what necessitates a new roof. The answer is that this depends on several factors, so we have to perform a thorough inspection and assess your roof’s condition. Here are a few of the signs we look for:
Curling shingles can indicate more serious problems with your roof, such as excessive roof leaks. Possible causes for curling shingles include poor attic ventilation, improper roof installation and roof age. You should call us for an inspection the moment you spot curling shingles. You might have a roofing problem that you don’t know about.
The areas where your shingles meet other surfaces like chimneys and walls are vulnerable to roof leaks. These areas should have metal flashings. Unfortunately, installing flashings properly takes time and knowledge. Some shoddy roofers sometimes use roof cement in those areas instead. Roof cement works for a time, but it will soon harden, crack, and leak. You have to call a roof repair expert like Pechacek’s General Contracting to correct this problem.
Roof Vent Problems
Issues with your roof vent can lead to moisture infiltration. If roof leaks are left unattended, then you might have to replace your roof because of the moisture damage. We will check for cracked housings on plastic roof vents and broken seams on metal roof vents. We can deal with this problem by replacing the damaged vents and replacing any pulled or missing nails at the bottom edge of the roof vent base.
