Common Problems

Does My Roof Have a Problem?

From the outside, your roof is looking somewhat old, it’s cracking, it seems like it has seen better days. You’re not quite sure though, after all, because you look at this roof day in and day out. Or maybe your roof is relatively new, but there are some missing shingles, mold growth, or what seems like water damage from the gutter system? From the inside, you say to yourself, “Is that a dry stain on my ceiling”. Or maybe you’ve discovered wet drywall, water dripping from a light fixture, or even a stream of water running down the side of your window? If any of this is happening, it may be time for you to consider having your roof evaluated for reliability. It is worth considering that it may be your roof that is not operating correctly, but it may also be a siding issue, a window issue, or even a masonary issue. Wind driven rain can do so much damage, forcing water behind siding, into the flashing, into rusted pipe vents, and through other avenues such as satellite dishes, antennas, lighting rods, or even holes from holiday decorating activities that pierce the roof.
