4 Common Areas Where Roof Leaks Develop

Your roof will sustain damage over time, resulting in leaks. When left neglected, this may turn into a more serious problem that may compromise your home's structural integrity. It's important to maintain your roof's top condition to safeguard your overall home for years to come. This will also spare you from costly repairs or early replacements. West Side Roofing, the roofing expert, shares four areas where leaks usually develop:

4 Common Areas Where Roof Leaks Develop

  1. Shingles. Missing, curling, cracking, and discolored shingles can put your roof's underlayment and sheathing at risk. Meanwhile, granule buildup in the gutters indicates that the shingles are already losing their efficiency. When you detect any of these issues, make sure to address them immediately to avoid major leaks to occur.
  2. Gutters. These are designed to gather water pouring off your roofing system, channel it to the downspouts, and drain it away from your premises. Because of their open nature, however, they easily accumulate leaves, twigs, dirt, and other debris. This congestion can cause water to back up and seep through your roof, which results in premature wear. It's essential to clean your gutters at least twice a year to keep them efficient all year round. We also suggest installing a gutter protection system to keep your gutters clog-free through the seasons.
  3. Flashing. This is the thin strip of metal that seals and protects the joints of your roof from water infiltration. You can find this around pipes, chimneys, and dormers. If it has started to corrode or come loose, it can provide entry for leaks.
  4. Soffit and Fascia. The soffit is the surface underneath the overhanging section of roof eaves. Meanwhile, the fascia is vertical finishing edge connected to the area where the gutter is attached to the roof. These components are constantly exposed to the elements, which can eventually deteriorate them. When they start to show signs of rot or excessive moisture, count on us to remove and replace them promptly.

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

Leaking Chimney and Other Chimney Issues

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
