Trust the Experience
For a wide range of clients, including homeowners and those in charge of commercial and industrial establishments, we do roof inspections. Why should I get my roof inspected, you may wonder. The explanation is that a roof inspection also checks for other potential problem areas, in addition to the roof. Any signs of water, dampness, dry rot, or other problems will be looked for in the attic. A leak that you may believe is coming from the roof itself is often caused by issues in the attic. If your AC condenser is experiencing any issues and the pan has standing water, this might lead to a ceiling leak that looks like a roof leak. Condensation, cracks, and degradation in the attic may also result in concerns that may seem to be related to the roof. Of course, we examine all roofing components, including shingles and wood shakes, during a complete roof inspection. In the case of asphalt shingles, we'll look to determine whether any granules are missing as a result of tree branches rubbing against them or extreme weather. We will also look for buckling or other problems with the joints between the shingles since these may lead to water pooling in certain places and eventual leakage onto your ceiling or even inside your house. To look for mold, dry rot, or insect infestations, we will examine the wood shakes. To avoid these problems, we will make sure that every wood has been properly treated, and we may also take precautions for future defense. Many individuals neglect to consider another aspect of a roof inspection, which is the examination of gutters and downspouts. It might be problematic if your gutters are blocked with leaves, moss, or any other kind of material. As a result, rainwater and moisture may build, and as time passes, the standing water may start to damage certain areas of the roof. To ensure there is no water damage and proper installation, we will also check the metal flashings that seal off chimneys and skylights. Along with inspecting the pipes themselves, we will also check the collars and boots that surround them.

We are experts in locating the issue for you when a leak appears in a seemingly unconnected area of your ceiling. Roof buckling - When your attic has inadequate ventilation, it may buckle. Your roof shingles may also become wet if moisture accumulates in your attic from the condenser of your air conditioner or from humidity.

Algae growth - Especially in humid conditions, fungus and algae development on your roof is common. Even while this form of repair is not essential, it may be highly unsightly.

The majority of roof shingles are constructed of an asphalt composite with granules covering each shingle's surface.

If this occurs, kindly give us a call since we are quite experienced in dealing with shingle damage and repairs. Leaks that flash - When your roof abuts a vertical surface, like a chimney, flashings—which can be made of metal or another material—are positioned there. By directing water away from the area where the two surfaces meet, these flashings are utilized to stop leaks. Harsh weather conditions often lead the flashing to become broken or dislodged, which may allow water to infiltrate into unnoticed spaces. Call us right away to find and resolve flashing problems. Leaks not coming from the roof - On occasion, a leak in the ceiling may not be related to a problem with the roof. Water stains on your ceiling might come from attics. That's because attics may become quite hot, and condensation of moisture in certain places leads to standing water. Air handlers are often situated in the attic, and if your pan overflows or you have other AC issues, this might also resemble a roof leak. The location of the water's source is known.

We can handle the following kinds of commercial and industrial roofing: Roofs with standing seams Corrugated roof seams Glass fiber roofs Metal shingles Roofs with standing seams Standing seam roofs are a typical kind of industrial roofing. The side panels of the roof are positioned vertically above the roofline in this kind of roofing system. The panels are attached to the supporting framework via unique screws or clips. For cosmetic reasons, these clips or screws are often buried. Our business is familiar with the problems and worries that might occur with this kind of industrial roof. Another sort of industrial roofing system that we can service is corrugated seam roofing. Metals such as tin, steel, or aluminum are often used to create corrugated roofing. Designed to be a durable and affordable option for industrial buildings, corrugated roofs feature a wavy surface. These roofs are designed to allow water to drain off of them, avoiding any possibility of moisture accumulation. You may rely on us for both this sort of roofing's repair and replacement. Fiberglass roofs - Due to its inability to corrode and frequent ability to let light through the roof, fiberglass roofs are a highly common form of industrial roofing. This is a terrific feature since it reduces the need for artificial lighting within the structure, which is important given the growing cost of electricity. While fiberglass roofs are not prone to water leaks, large objects falling on them might cause them to shatter. All fiberglass roofing-related problems, among others, may be handled by us. Metal roofs - A variety of metal roof types are a common option for commercial roofing systems. Aluminum, copper, or other metals may be used to make these kinds of roofs. Because it is extremely reflective, aluminum metal is an excellent option because the sun bounces off the roof, reducing energy expenditures. Metal roofs are relatively lightweight and reasonably priced, but they do have a tendency to develop certain problems with time. The fact that the likelihood of the roof starting to rust increases with age is really concerning. Once the rust has caused the roof to disintegrate in certain areas, it results in water leaks. Repairing these issues is something we can help with.
