Why DO Residential Roofs Develop Problems?

All roofs should be built strong and designed to last decades. Knowing this, you might wonder why residential roofs develop problems as often as they do. This comes down to many factors, and which ones are at play will vary from roof to roof. Here are some of the most common reasons Chicagoland roofs need repair or replacement.

Poor Maintenance

The easiest way to extend the life of your roof and avoid major repairs is yearly maintenance. Without a checkup with a roofing expert, small issues quickly turn into major problems. We suggest you scheduled your yearly inspection after storm season when your roof is most likely to have sustained damage.

Storm Damage

Hail, rain, high winds, lightning, and storm-related debris can also cause significant damage to your roof. In many cases, this damage is small and difficult to see unless you are actually on the roof or inside your attic. This is why you want an inspection after every storm season.

Leaks

Your roof is essentially the lid on your home, meant to keep everything out. When a leak develops, water is able to reach the support structures of your roof, your walls, and pretty much everything in your home. Any leak is a major problem.

Poor Installation

Not every person installing roofs in the Chicagoland region is an expert roofer. And when they aren’t, mistakes are made. While it can take years before you realize something is wrong, in many cases, roofing problems come down to poor craftsmanship.

Overgrown Trees

Trees that are not properly trimmed can rub against your roof, removing protective granules from your shingles and even pulling shingles away from the underlayment. This leaves your home without its outermost protective layer of weatherproofing. 

Crazy Critters

While many of them are cute, small animals, birds, and other local wildlife can do a number on your roof. If you notice nests on the outside of your home or strange sounds in the attic, you need to evict those unwanted house guests in a quick and safe manner.
