Even a high-quality, flawlessly installed roof has some vulnerabilities. Today, our metal roofing experts take a look at three common problem areas of a typical roofing system.
The flashing runs along key intersections of your roofing system: the ridges, valleys and seams where the shingles meet features such as the chimney and vent boots. Flashing strips are subjected to a lot of wear and tear caused by water continually being channeled toward them. Any seam caused by warps or poor sealant can lead to serious moisture damage for the rest of the roof.
The gutters are designed to channel water runoff away from the roof and the rest of the home and straight to the storm drain. Any problems related to the gutter such as clogs and gaps between trough sections can lead to widespread moisture damage even after light rain. Gutter installation experts recommend installing gutter covers to minimize clogging. Any damaged sections should be replaced immediately.
The shingles bear the brunt of the wear and tear caused by Mother Nature. Common problems include warped or split shingles, missing panels and discoloration caused by mold, rust or algae.
