Roof Repair

Your roof is one of the essential structural components of your house. A roof protects the interior of your home from the elements and improves the structural integrity of your house. It can even add aesthetic appeal to your property.

Problems with your roof can have severe and costly consequences. However, if you live in Indianapolis, the good news is that help is a phone call away. M&J Exteriors specialize in high-quality roof repair solutions that fit your budget. Keep reading to learn more about common roof repair issues and signs that you should seek professional repair services.

Common Roof Repair Issues

Leaking Roofs

Lifting Shingles

Roof leaks are by far one of the most common roof defects. Many things can cause leaks, including deteriorating roofing materials, cracks or gaps in the gaskets around vent pipes, shallow roof slopes, or flashing sections that slide out of place. In addition, a leaking roof can result in moisture damage, structural problems, mold, and mildew development.

You may find it frustrating to deal with roof shingles as a property owner. There are primarily four causes of lifting shingles:

  • Severe weather and high winds
  • Faulty shingles that are bent or torn
  • Abrasive foot traffic
  • Poor installation

A shingle that lifts can break away from the roof, resulting in debris accumulation and leaving wooden roof trusses vulnerable to rot and decay. It is, therefore, crucial to deal with lifting shingles as soon as possible.

Water Accumulation

Tree Damage and Holes in Your Roof

A divot in your roof is the ideal place for water to accumulate. Since pooling water seeps into your roof over time, you may eventually notice leaks in certain home areas. Installing high-quality flashing and maintaining your gutter systems will ensure that water is directed away from areas that are sensitive to damage.

Falling trees or chimney bricks can create holes in your roof. A hole in your roof will allow for the influx of moisture and the build-up of plant debris. A strong gust of wind that blows into the gap can also cause considerable damage. In addition, a hole in your roof invites animals and insects to enter the inside of your roof. It can also cause issues with indoor temperature regulation. M&J Roofing and Exteriors deals with roof hole repairs daily. Inspect your roof regularly and contact us immediately if you notice a hole.

Splitting

Poor Ventilation

When temperature levels rise and fall, roof shingles and tiles tend to shrink and expand. If shingles are packed too tightly together or if there is insufficient room on your roof, shingles can pull and tug on each other and split or bend. The shingles on a newly installed roof should have enough room to allow for movement whenever there is a change in temperature. If this is not the case, you may have to replace the bulk of your roof shingles in the coming years. M&J Exteriors offers roof inspection services to ensure proper roof installation.

A standard roofing issue that property owners overlook is an attic with insufficient ventilation. The heat inside the roof can result in cracking roof shingles and all the problems typically associated with openings in the roofing materials. Inadequate ventilation can also be a problem in Indianapolis, especially in winter, since insufficient ventilation can cause snow and ice on the roof to melt and freeze. In addition, the extreme temperature changes can cause flashing to lift, which will result in leaks.

Water damage

Missing Shingles

Dark spots on your ceilings or walls and peeling paint are tell-tale signs of water damage. Water damage is usually the result of a leak in your roof and can damage the structure of your home and cause mold growth.

If you have a sloped roof, the chances are that open spots on your roof will be easily noticeable. Accumulation of debris, high utility bills, and water damage on your ceiling and walls are also signs that there may be shingles missing from your roof.

Buckling Shingles

Mold-growth

If your roof has a wavy appearance, it may be an indication that your roof shingles are cupping and are not uniform with the rest of your roof.

Clogged Gutters

In many cases, roofing problems result from clogged gutters full of plant debris and soil. Channels play an integral role in directing water away from your roof and property. If your gutters don’t function correctly, you may soon be dealing with moisture damage to your roof.

The presence of mold or mildew in certain places in your home can signify that you leak in your roof.

Roof Repair or Replacement?

The question of whether you should repair your roof or replace it altogether depends on many factors. These include the age of your roof, the degree of damage, and the cost of repairing your roof. If, for example, your roof is 25 years old and suffered severe damage, then a roof replacement will likely be the better option. M&J Exteriors will, after inspecting your roof, be able to recommend the most suitable course of action.
