Roof Maintenance and Repair

Good roof maintenance and repair is one of the most important aspects of a well-maintained home or business. A well-maintained roof is responsible for protecting your asset, yourself, and the people it houses from exposure to the elements. That’s why replacing your Hood River roof is a significant investment to consider. This means, whenever possible, repairing your roof will be a better alternative.

Over time, common roof maintenance and repair problems may arise such as leaks, severe moisture, rotting and even cracking. Any combination of these can cause serious roof damage when ignored over a long period of time. For that reason, a free roof inspection is of most importance once you discover a leak or other type of roofing damage taking hold.

To avoid common maintenance issues from becoming serious problems, it’s important to establish a regular and annual roof inspection plan, especially after a harsh weather season. If a leak or shingle damage is storm related, it’s quite possible to have it covered by your insurance policy.

Selecting the right roofing company, like Hood River Roofing, is important when considering an annual roof maintenance and repair plan.

Roof Maintenance and Repair Problems

Roof Leaks

The single most common roofing problem facing homeowners. These are often found near chimneys, under damaged shingles, at flashing points and around gutters, at skylights and close to vents and pipes, in low spots or valleys.

Pooled Water

When water begins to pool or forms little ponds on the roof, it can cause problems in the long run. Mostly common to flat roofs, the solution is to form tapered areas over the surface allowing the water to properly run off.

Missing Shingles

Missing, curling and discolored Shingles can become even more apparent when proper maintenance is being ignored. This will be the most apparent sign of much needed roof repair.

Cracking and Blistering

Cracks, blisters and ridges, holes and rotting in the Soffit. The wood under your roof’s overhang can attract some animals and insects. Check this for possible damage on a periodic and seasonal basis.

Poor Maintenance

Lack of regular maintenance is one of the most common ways for minor issues to become serious and expensive. Mildew, moss and sagging are tell-tale signs of roof neglect. When caught early, these problems can be an easy fix.

Moisture Damage

Your Fascia, the front board along your roofline, can be easily damaged by moisture. This area serves as a mount for your gutters. Add this to your maintenance checklist, and repair and replace fascia boards as needed.

Shrinkage

Roof materials shrinkage can lead to more serious problems, like the pulling apart of critical roof components. Shrinkage particularly affects roofs covered with EPDM (a synthetic rubber membrane) as well as other types of covering.

Winter Damage

Snow and ice can wreak havoc over time. When ice and snow melts, water will eventually seep underneath the shingles, causing gaps and lifting where more water can enter. A routine spring and fall inspection plan is encouraged.

Tree Damage

A tree limb falling on your roof can cause serious damage. But even daily rubbing from branches can scratch the surface and wear down the top layer. Consider tree trimming and possible removal options within your annual plan.

Poor Installation

Poor installation remains one of the most common reasons for long-term complications, short-life expectancy and repairs. Choosing an under qualified and poorly experienced roofer will end up costing you more in the long run.

Most Common Roof Types

Our roofing contractors are experts in offering quality solutions, superior craftsmanship and fair pricing. Here are some of the common roofing systems we work with.

Flat and Low Slope Roofs

Most commonly found in large commercial buildings such as offices, warehouses, shopping centers and box stores, while low slope roofs can also be found on apartments and industrial buildings facilitating water runoff.

Pitched, Hip and Gable Roofs

These roof styles slope downwards, typically in two to four parts from a central ridge. Less commonly found in commercial buildings, they can include a wide variety of materials such as metal roofing, asphalt shingles, slate or cedar.
