3 Common Roofing Problems You Might Encounter

Roof problems are a cause for concern among homeowners everywhere because, aside from being expensive to fix, they're also time-consuming. Luckily, most of them are preventable – it just takes a meticulous eye and knowing the warning signs for which you need to look. West Side Roofing, one of Ohio's most-trusted roofing companies since 1931, lists three of the most common roofing problems for which you need to watch out.

3 Common Roofing Problems You Might Encounter

  1. Roof Leaks – A leaky roof is one problem that can wreak havoc on your whole house if left untreated. There are a lot of factors that can contribute to leaks and moisture build-up in roofs, which can range from the roof's age itself to poor workmanship. Save yourself from the trouble of having to experience it in the first place by hiring a reputable roofing company who can conduct check-ups on a regular basis. West Side Roofing is a certified GAF Master Elite® contractor, a title granted to the top 3% of roofers in the industry.
  2. Pooling and Ice Dams – Responsible homeowners know that it's important to inspect their roofing after a bad storm. Don't wait for water stains to show up in your ceiling since they could only mean that the water damage has already penetrated your first line of defense. Pooling happens when water stays on the roof instead of just sliding off the surface. During winter, pooling water can turn into ice dams. Both can be remedied with properly installed drains and gutters from professionals like West Side Roofing.
  3. Poorly Installed Shingles – Inexperienced or careless contractors often install shingles in a haste, which causes them to get blown off easily. Not only does this lessen the aesthetic value of your home, it can also end up hurting someone. To ensure that your shingles are nailed in the right place, hire only trusted roofing companies to get the job done.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
