As a Pocatello homeowner, you want to have a residence that you can be proud of and provides safety for your family. Pocatello roofing is a large part of this. Your roof is one of, if not the most important part of your home when it comes to safety. This is what protects you from the rain, snow, heat, and other elements. Pocatello roofing problems can become a major headache, drain your bank account, and lead to additional problems.
We suggest having an expert Pocatello roofing company (hey, that’s us!) perform periodic inspections to ensure that your roof is structurally sound and in good repair. Many homeowners are tempted to do this themselves. However, this can be a bad decision. Every year there are (on average) more than 100,000 ladder-related injuries and hundreds of deaths in the United States. Professional roofers have the training, experience, and equipment to perform these jobs safely so you don’t have to put yourself at risk. With that being said, here are some tips and helpful information about what you’ll be looking for with your roof.
Pocatello Roofing Issues
The following are potential issues that can happen with your roof, what you should be looking for, and what you should do.
Shingles are a common Pocatello roofing problem. It can also be one of the biggest problems. A roof done right will last for a long time — probably a couple of decades — but not forever. When you look at the shingles of your roof, you will want to look for curling, buckling, broken, or missing shingles. They can also begin to lose their granules over time. In the majority of cases involving shingles require just a few small repairs.
You may not know that your roof has problems with shingles. That’s not something that happens with a leaking roof very often. If your roof is leaking, you’ll probably know about it. This can be an issue with Pocatello roofing often after a big rainstorm or when the snow melts. If there is any little crack or opening, the water will make its way into your home.
If you believe that you have a leak, look for these signs of water damage — rotting wood and/or drywall, mold, and discoloration. Leaks may be caused by a problem with your shingles or a few other possibilities. These include your flashing and fascia, among other things. Any leak should be taken care of as soon as possible to prevent any further damage.
Your roof is a complex structure with a lot of different parts. A problem with any of these parts is a potential disaster waiting to happen. This is where it pays off to have a professional-looking at your roof. There are signs and symptoms that a professional will be able to spot that the average homeowner won’t. Some examples of this could be uneven planes or a problem with your venting that would allow moisture to build up. Having a Pocatello roofing company inspect your roof will help you prevent small problems from turning into major ones. And if there is a big problem, you’ll get the information that you need to reach the best solution.
A Job Done Wrong
Not all Pocatello roofing companies are created equal. Sometimes roofing jobs just aren’t done the way they should be. Sometimes things slip through the cracks. If this has happened to you, there is a high probability that you will need to have at least some minor repairs done to correct the mistakes. If you have ever dealt with a Pocatello roofing company that you aren’t sure you can trust, or if you just don’t know the full history of your roof, it would be wise to have an inspection done.
