The roof is your home’s first line of defense, so it is important that it stays in good shape. Since it is constantly exposed to all the elements, there are many things that could affect your roof and cause damage. In fact, here are some of the most common roof problems that could affect your Mesa home:
Even the highest quality shingles are susceptible to leaks, especially when routine roof maintenance is neglected. Failure to inspect and maintain your roof can lead to weak points that ultimately end up letting water through. The sun in Arizona is hot, and beats down on your roof all year long (or at least the majority of the year). Storms and wind can cause damage also, leading to a leaky roof.
Speaking of severe weather, metal flashing, tiles, and shingles can all be lifted up during heavy storms. Lifted shingles leave the roof susceptible to further damages, and need to be nailed back down and resealed as soon as possible. The longer a piece of roofing remains lifted, the worse the problems will be for your home.
Warm weather causes shingles and tiles to expand. Over time, these roofing materials could run into each other and begin to split and bend. Once split or bent, these materials are weakened and the risk of them falling off completely greatly increases.
Asphalt shingles have small granules that absorb UV radiation and protect your roof from the environment. Over time, and with increased exposure, these granules may begin to fall off which means the very integrity of the roof begins to fail.
A poor or malfunctioning gutter system could fail to direct the flow of water off of your roof and away from your home. If water is directed back onto your roof, or begins to pool or puddle in areas, the weight of the water will end up causing serious damage. IT is important to regularly clean and inspect your gutters to ensure proper water flow and drainage.
