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.

Residential roof tear-off and cleanup A roof tear off is one of the biggest residential service we offer home and condo owners. If we find that your roof only has one layer of shingle down, were going to recommend an entire tear-off. A complete tear-off can get messy. When it comes time to remove your roof, there is typically a ton of nails, a bunch of debris from the shingles - its the biggest part of the job. To keep your yard clean, we put protective grounds down. We use tarps, plywood, well lean sheeting board on the house to cover over top of the bushes - we really just take the extra precautionary steps so that nothing gets damaged during the tear-off process. One thing that has really revolutionized the tear-off process is the equipter. We have invested in numerous equipters to keep our job sites clean. What is an equipter? An equipter is a mobile trash/dumpster unit. This allows us to actually drive a dumpster around the property and move around to where we are removing your
