Issues That Can Affect Roof PerformanceMar 31, 2015
Your roof is your home’s primary protection against constant exposure to the weather. Eventually, that exposure can take its toll on your roof. Damage to your roof, whether evident or not, will affect the performance and appearance of the entire roof system.
As a professional you can rely on for your roofing concerns, Rogers Roofing can help assess your roofing in Tinley Park, IL, and address any issues that we may encounter. The following are signs of issues that can affect roof performance:
- Damaged flashing. Flashing is the metal covering roof protrusions like your chimney. Damaged flashing can allow water to leak into your home. Water damage can cause several problems, including wood rot or mold growth. It can also compromise the insulation of your home.
- Missing or curling shingles. Curling or missing shingles can also allow water to leak into your home. Furthermore, they can affect the way your home looks, reducing curb appeal.
- Excess granule loss. The constant exposure to the elements can result in granule loss. This means shingles have reached the end of their life span. This is a strong indicator of reduced performance from your roof. The lack of granules means that shingles are less resistant to the weather.
- Roof age. A typical roof system is expected to last between 20 and 25 years. Is the roof layered and properly ventilated? If your existing roof is installed over an older one, a new roof may be necessary.
If any of these issues are affecting your roof, allow Rogers Roofing to provide you with the assistance you need.
