Common Causes for Roof Repair
Leaks are common in areas where joints or penetrations exist, as well as around chimneys, near skylights, by vent stacks, and in the valleys where two sloped sections of roof meet.
If flashing is improperly installed or becomes old and worn, it will need to be repaired or replaced to continue protecting your roof from leaks.
Weather-related events, like severe winds, hailstorms, and torrential rains, are the most common reasons a commercial roof requires emergency repair.
When the roof's insulation and underlayment are unable to keep the house's heat from escaping, the snow on the roof melts. The melted snow then drips down the roof and re-freezes at the edge of the roof, causing what's known as an "ice dam."
Ice build-up on the gutters and large icicles are both signs of ice damming.
Because ice dams can grow to be quite heavy, they can lead to roof leaks, punctures, and other damage to the roof and gutter system.
