Your Source for Fast and Effective Roof Repair
The roofs covering Colorado’s homes and office buildings (particularly those installed by us here at JBC Contracting) typically provide residents with optimal protection year-in and year-out. Yet with all that the local climate has to throw at them, they’re bound to experience a few issues along the way. Taking care of issues now helps protect you from having to spend a fortune addressing water and weather damage in the future. Our roofing company can help deal with those problems quickly and effectively, with minimal intrusion into your family life or daily business routine.
Common Causes of Roof Damage
Many often wonder how exactly roof damage happens, and what, if anything, can be done to prevent it. While special cases always exist, the three most common causes of extensive roof damage are:
- Shingle deterioration: Over time, the asphalt granules that allow shingles to provide such excellent protection against the elements begin to be blown, chipped, or sloughed off. Once enough granules have been lost, the shingles are easy split or blown off.
- Cracks in flashing: The flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights provide a waterproof seal where shingles and roof coatings can’t. Yet the stresses flashing experiences at certain points can cause cracks, which allows water to seep into the roof deck and saturate insulation, cause water damage, or even problems with your electrical systems.
- Storm damage: High winds can blow or tear shingles away, while ice dams formed from heavy snow buildup can add excess stress to overhangs and gutters. If you happen to notice heavy ice buildup or fallen shingles around your property after a severe storm, then immediate repairs are needed.
We here at JBC Contracting can halt the spread of roofing issues before they require a complete roof replacement. Routine inspections as part of a roof certification program can help in fortifying your roof against damage altogether.
