Roofing Repairs

The roof over our head is usually just something we take for granted. Often, it is not until something major occurs that we even give a second thought to one of the most important elements protecting our home or business. There are multiple issues, large and small, that can affect its condition over time.

Roof Maintenance is Important

Failure to maintain your roof properly can have devastating consequences. Addressing problems as they arise will help protect and extend its longevity. Whether doing routine upkeep or assessing storm damage, roof repairs can be overwhelming, but they do not have to be. The honest experts at Freeman Roofing will gladly give you a no-cost estimate and walk you step by step through any needed repairs so you can rest easy knowing you are protected by a sound roof.

Missing Shingles

The climate along the Gulf Coast frequently presents strong wind and storms. This volatile weather can result in shingles being displaced. Missing shingles are not only a problem aesthetically but present a maintenance issue as well. This is a common but important roof repair. Missing shingles should be replaced and inspected as soon as possible.

Flashing

Flashing refers to the material surrounding chimneys, skylights or other intrusions on your roof. It is meant to form a watertight seal. Damaged flashing is one of the main culprits of a leaky roof and needs addressing right away. It is always a good idea to have flashing inspected on a regular basis.

Ponding

Ponding is the accumulation of water on a roof’s surface. Flat roofs are particularly susceptible to ponding as they do not drain as well as sloped roofs. Poor or blocked drainage or a sagging roof are some culprits of ponding. Regardless of the cause, this is a roof repair that needs to be dealt with as swiftly as possible to avoid mold and costly structural damage.

Blistering

A roof blister is just as the term implies. It is a small bubble formed on asphalt roofs. Blistering usually occurs in the first year of the roof’s installation and may be caused by extreme heat conditions or poor attic ventilation. Hiring a professional is important as blisters can be a sign of additional issues.

Rusty Metal

Metal roofing systems are often considered to be maintenance-free. For the most part, they are. Over a period of years, waterproof sealants may begin to fail. Metal roofs may also fall victim to standing water resulting in rust. Regular inspections and roof repair from a licensed professional can prevent damage from occurring.

Leaks

Leaks are not only a result of the aforementioned issues but may also be caused by defective gutters, extreme weather and a multitude of other reasons. The bottom line is that any leak is a roof repair that demands quick action. Leaks can lead to mold damage and possible health issues. Attics, ceilings, walls and ceiling fans/light fixtures can all be damaged as well. Water from a leaking roof can cause electrical wires to short presenting a fire hazard. Last but certainly not least is the costly structural damage that can occur with a major leak. A leak no matter how insignificant requires immediate attention from a professional.
