Common Types of Roof Damage
Your roof’s age, extreme weather, and other elements can cause various types of damage that may require repairs. The most common issues come from poor installation, high winds, hail, and other flying debris. Generally speaking, a properly installed roof should handle rain, sleet, snow, and temperature fluctuations with no issues for 20-plus years. On those occasions when your roof is damaged, be sure to have a roof repair professional like Emmons inspect and fix the damage as soon as possible.
A leaking roof is simple enough to spot, right? Not exactly. Many roof leaks end up in your walls or attic where they are hard to find. Often you won’t notice a roof leak until it has caused structural damage to your home. It’s important to have any leaks fixed immediately and a roof inspection from Emmons will ensure we find them before it’s too late.
Torn or Missing Shingles
Usually caused by high winds and aided by an older roof, this type of damage is often visible from the street. When you find missing or torn shingles you should have your roof inspected as there may be other problem areas that just haven’t lost their hold yet.
Cracked or Blistered Shingles
Prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can cause your shingles to expand and contract. These movements can lead to cracks or blisters that expose the underlying layers. Moisture can build up under the shingles and cause deeper damage to your roof if left untreated.
Damaged Pipe Vent Collars
The rubberized plastic collars that surround your home’s roof vent pipes wear out over time and can allow water to run down the pipes. They are typically replaced when you install a new roof but may require replacement sooner depending on their exposure to the elements.
You typically won’t know if you are missing any roof flashing without inspecting the joints and valleys of your roof. Flashing is a hard, impermeable layer that spans any angled areas of your roof to ensure moisture does not enter the roofing structure.
Ice dams are a serious problem no homeowners wants to face during the winter. The expert roofers at Emmons can inspect your home to determine whether the cause is an improperly installed roof, clogged gutters, or insufficient attic insulation or ventilation. No matter what the issue is we can fix the problem to ensure your home and family remain safe.

Is Your Roof Repair Covered By Insurance?
The short answer is yes, they often are. After heavy storms, many insurance companies know to expect an uptick in claims for home repair. Your roof takes the bulk of the beating in a storm, especially when hail is involved. The roof repair experts at Emmons can inspect your roof and look for damage that may be covered by your insurance.

Do I Need a Roof Replacement?

When there are a lot of small issues over a large portion of your roof it can be easier and more cost effective to opt for a roof replacement.
