Shingle maintenance should be performed by an experienced contractor to ensure that your roof lasts as long as it should. There are a number of factors to consider such as damage by tree branches, wind, and hail.
We will look over your entire roof and devise a plan to maintain it in an economical way that makes sense for your needs. Paying special attention to the areas we know to fail prematurely gives us an advantage when designing a maintenance plan for your roof.
Occasionally, due to many factors, nails will back out of the decking below and puncture the shingles above. As water flows down the roof in a rainstorm, this leaves an opening that allows water to infiltrate the roof and run into your building. Regular roof maintenance can address these issue prior to a leak occurring and will prevent further damage to the decking, insulation and sheetrock below.
The most common location for leaks on a shingle roof system is the penetrations. These are the vents and jacks that penetrate the shingle roof, but can also be things like ridge vents and skylights. During our inspection we will be looking at these items very closely to ensure that the sealants have not broken down past the point of functioning and will recommend any necessary sealant repairs.
