Do you have a roofing problem?

Damage control. It’s a good idea to have your roof inspected on a regular basis and fix minor issues before they become major problems.
The main purpose of flashing is to keep water away from building materials or building assemblies that can be damaged by moisture. Flashing can be replaced or reused during re-roofing and roof repair. It can also be omitted or incorrectly installed.
A roofing inspection should always include the inspection of roof flashing to identify damaged or missing flashing problems that require correction.
Granular loss is caused by aging , but can also be sped up through inadequate ventilation, extreme climates like Ga summers, and in rare cases (atlas chalet , Certainteed horizon) defects in the shingle.
Sometimes shingles can be repaired and sometimes the roofing will need to be replaced. Our expert roofers will inspect your roof and choose the best course of action depending on the extent of the damage.
Impact from hail and windblown objects will sometimes crack the glass in roof-mounted skylights.
In some cases the damaged glass panel can be replaced, but most often a new skylight unit must be installed.
When wood gets wet and can’t dry out completely, wood rot is likely to occur. Even a small leak can result in rotted roof sheathing and rafters, which will seriously weaken the roof structure. Other areas vulnerable to wood rot include the fascia board and soffit.
These problems are often discovered during a re-roof, and can be corrected by patching in new material.
When a new asphalt shingle roof is installed on an existing house, the old asphalt shingle roof can be removed or left in place. Most building codes say that you can’t install more than two layers of asphalt roofing, but this rule is sometimes ignored. There are two main problems with three layers of roofing. First off, the uppermost roofing shingles are likely to be uneven and inadequately anchored to the roof sheathing. Secondly, the combined weight of the roofing material can exceed the strength of the roof framing.
The solution is to remove all three layers of roofing and start fresh, directly on the roof sheathing.
NOTE: Many of the problems described here apply to all kinds of roofing materials, not just wood and asphalt shingles.
