Common Roof Leak Causes
Your home may suffer a roof leak suddenly because of a severe storm or over time due to wear and tear that was not corrected. Age matters as older roofing materials are more prone to damage. Broken and missing shingles expose the underlayment and sheathing and are a common cause of water intrusion. Other reasons include chimney damage in addition to flashing that is rusted, damaged, or missing. Roof vents are necessary for adequate attic ventilation but can lead to leaks if damaged, and vents and valleys that were improperly sealed during installation may leak as well. Annual inspections are a good idea for all roofs but particularly for homes that have skylights, which may be prone to leaking. Hail impacts can result in imperfections that let water beneath your shingles. Attic condensation is a potential cause, and clogged gutters can result in leaks, ice dams, and other serious problems.
The Damage Caused by Roof Leaks
Even a small roof leak is a serious problem as it will worsen with time, continue to compromise the roofing system, and lead to structural harm and damage within the home. Ceilings and walls are often among the first areas damaged. You may experience discoloration, mold, cracks, and undermined paint and wallpaper, and if the insulation gets wet, it loses its R-value and becomes a potential breeding ground for dangerous black mold. If the water damage continues, you run the risk of extensive structural damage, floor damage, loss of personal property, and even serious foundation problems. If you experience any of these problems, it’s imperative that you call Emmons as soon as possible 1-856-885-6677 so that we can inspect the roofing system and carry out a precision repair that prevents further damage.

Common Types of Roof Damage
Emmons’ roof repair services are not limited to roof leaks. Our team can replace missing shingles and roofing materials that are curled, torn, blistered, or cracked. We replace damaged roof vents and damaged and missing flashing and can remove ice dams as well.
Torn or Missing Shingles
Missing and torn shingles are the most common roof damage and are often caused by strong winds. Even a single damaged or missing shingle may allow water to penetrate the underlayment and sheathing.
Cracked or Blistered Shingles
Shingles are designed to expand and contract, but over time and in the right conditions, this movement can lead to blisters and cracks. These imperfections set the stage for water intrusion.
Damaged Roof Vents
Roof vents are necessary to ensure adequate attic ventilation and optimal roof temperatures. Severe storms can damage these vents, which can lead to leaks and ventilation problems.
Missing or Damaged Flashing
Flashing is an impermeable material used to prevent water penetration at joints and along valleys. Bad storms can dislodge and damage flashing, and in some cases, flashing can rust over time.
Ice Dam Removal
Ice dams occur during winter and may be caused by insufficient attic ventilation or insulation, clogged gutters, or improper roof installation. Such damming can cause substantial damage in a short period.
Roof Replacement Services
In some cases, it isn’t practical or cost-effective to repair a roof, and better to replace it. Our team will inspect your roof thoroughly and accurately and provide you with a professional and honest assessment.
