It’s probably the single most common roofing problem facing homeowners. From cracked flashing (those thin, weatherproofed pieces of metal that are designed to keep water out) to broken shingles, tiles or slate there are nearly as many causes as there are roofs.
Most commonly, roof leaks have a tendency to occur:
- Near the chimney
- Under damaged shingles
- At flashing points
- Around gutters
- At skylights
- Close to vents and pipes
- In low spots or valleys
If you see signs of a leak, including discolored ceilings or damp walls, contact Pfister Roofing for an inspection from our commercial roof repair specialists.
When water begins to pool, or form little ponds on top of the roof, it can cause problems in the long run. A particular worry when it comes to flat roofs, the solution is to form tapered areas over the surface of the roof. Those little slopes will allow the water to run off, keeping your roof free from water damage.
Punctures and Holes
Everything from foot traffic to local wildlife can leave scrapes, puncture marks, or even big holes in a roof. Whether it’s a woodpecker drilling holes in the eaves or a contractor walking over the shingles, the damage can build up over the years, affecting the underlying wood or exposing it to rot-causing moisture.
When a roof material shrinks, it can lead to a host of other difficulties, such as deterioration, cracking, and the pulling apart of critical components like flashing. Shrinkage particularly affects roofs covered with EPDM (a synthetic rubber membrane) and all other roof coverings. (Continued)
