Severe hail and wind storms can quickly damage an asphalt shingle roof. If there are granules in your gutter or loose, missing, curling shingles, it is probably time for a re-roof. The granules protect the waterproofing asphalt and fiber glass base of the shingle. Without this protective layer on the shingle, the shingles will deteriorate sooner. The flashing should also be in good condition with no rust or damage. Large hail hit in Arvada, CO this summer. It is always a good idea to have a quality, local roofing company and your insurance agent inspect the roof after a big storm.
Rotting wood and moisture in the attic are some roofing issues that cannot be seen from the surface. Rock’s Roofing, Inc. knows that a quality roof starts at the base with a good deck. A slow, continuous leak is often not discovered until it is coming through the ceiling inside the home. By this time, the roofing deck could have significant damage and rotting. It is often a challenging adventure to find exactly where water is getting in. A re-roof is most likely the best course of action.
A repair is a less expensive route with some leaking roofs. Unless there is one of the issues mentioned above such as hail damage or curling shingles, a simple repair can be all that is needed. Repairs of roof are effective when the leaking area can be easily identified or an asphalt shingle can be effectively replaced. Please call us for a free roof inspection.
