Anytime you need roof leak repair, professional help is an absolute must, and as soon as possible. Leaks, no matter how small, can pose a health risk to your family or business. Leaks usually accumulate moisture and rain water which can lead to a wealth of other problems. Moisture in between your roofing and insulation can lead to mold and mildew that causes respiratory complications. The longer a roof goes without roof leak repair, the more damage it can cause to your home’s overall structure as water seeps deep under your roof.
Leaks at commercial buildings can be a real problem when they are hard to locate. It happens often when business owners call a repairman to fix a leak and the problem goes away for several weeks or even months. But then, the next big rain happens and the buckets are out again. This is because it can be hard to spot the problem area on flat roofs. Not only that, oftentimes flat roofs are not level. This causes pools of water to form. More problems happen when other service technicians install HVAC and other equipment improperly. This can cause punctures in the membranes.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
The weather in El Paso is often at fault for problems with roof shingles. Strong winds can lift the layers of materials. Hail storms can cause weakened roof shingles. The strong heat during the long summer months can cause shrinkage of the underlying membrane and can cause roof shingles to crack and curl. If your shingled roof has visible shingle damage such as cracks or tears, or is missing shingles, it’s probably time to look into getting a new roof. Especially in the constant heat and sunshine in El Paso, this kind of damage can be indicative of poor shingle quality or a sign that your roof has reached the end of its life.
Another big reason to look into roof repair is your roof’s age. Most roofs are designed to last about 25 years. This is unless your roof is made from tile or metal which last longer. If your roof was installed over 30 years ago, it’s probably time to partner with a roofing company. Then you can to put a plan in place for a new roof. Oftentimes, your insurance company will pay for a new roof. Especially if in addition to age, your roof experienced hail or wind damage.
