A good roof is essential if the contents of a building are to be protected. However, when something goes wrong and suddenly there is moisture on the ceiling or walls, that is when we, at Capital Roofing, can inspect your roof, free of charge, and advise you what repair needs to be done.
Common Roofing Problems
With the many different kinds of roofing used on homes and businesses, it is evident that occasionally something will go wrong. This makes it extremely important to contact an expert roofing contractor at the first sign of trouble.
Roofing problems may include:
• Parts of the roofing blown off by high winds
• Punctures or tears due to foot traffic, hail or wind
• Moisture from rain, snow or other moisture getting under roofing layers
• Water accumulating in ponds
• Tree limbs rubbing on the roof
• Inadequate ventilation
Metal Roofing Occurrences
Metal roofing is one of the strongest and long-lasting type of roofing on the market. They are durable, eco-friendly and, when properly installed, are designed to last for many years. However, even this type of roofing can have leak problems if not properly installed to begin with or maintained.
Having your metal roof periodically examined by a highly professional roof contractor will help protect your home or business from the hardest weather conditions. They will be able to identify small needed repair spots and correct them before they develop into a roof threatening situation.
Shingle Roofing Occurrences
Available in a number of different colors and styles, shingles present a beautiful picture of the home or business. They may consist of asphalt, fiberglass or plastic all of which require special application if the roof is to be long lasting and free of problems.
In addition to water getting under the shingles and freezing and severe weather damage, there can be a membrane problem. Required under this type of roofing, the TPO or EPDM membrane can shrink and cause crazing or cracks in the shingles or tile.
Acrylic Coating Occurrences
Acrylic polymers are especially designed for roofs. It is a liquid that, when dried, forms a thick coating over the roof. Acrylic roof coverings resist ponding water, resists foot traffic, expands and contracts, has reflective properties and is flexible when the temperature is low.
Acrylic coating problems include not properly cleaning the underlying substrate before installation and a ponding problem that will cause coating failure.
Membrane Systems Occurrences
Roof membrane systems have become very popular over the past few years for use on business roofs. Single-ply Membrane Roofing Systems advertise performance over 50 years, high-tensile strength, and black or white colors for UV reflection. The two main types are TPO and EPDM and differ in how they are applied.
Single-ply membrane can be damaged by punctures, seams that are vulnerable to leaks and UV rays, which hit directly on the membrane and cause the adhesives to deteriorate.
