The Dangers of a Leaky Roofing System Leaks are arguably the most troublesome problems youll encounter with your roof. The risk actually stems from how deceptive they are; small leaks are difficult to spot and can quickly grow. Today, West Side Roofing Co. discusses the dangers of leaky roofing and how to address them properly. Small Leaks Need Immediate Repair As previously highlighted, a small leak can rapidly grown in size due to a combination of heat and existing moisture damage. Its even riskier if the leak is somewhere that you cant see on the surface level, such as when its located in the inner part of the roofing structure. It might seem like a waste spending money repairing a leak of insignificant size, but the cost of repairing a bigger leak is often triple that of preventive repair. Letting the leak grow in size encourages moisture to damage the structure of the roof. Our roofing contractors are skilled in identifying leaks and problem areas and addressing them before

Keep Your Roof Leak-Free: Reminders from Roofing Contractors Your roof is your primary protection from the elements. That means it should be structurally sound to prevent water from entering the house when it rains. If your roof has a leak, have it fixed as soon as possible to avoid bigger damage. Its even better if you can keep the roof leak-free. Roofers have some suggestions to do just that: Check for Broken Shingles. Broken shingles are one of the signs that your roof may be compromised. If you notice a piece of a shingle blown away from the roof, that means your roof may not be holding up well against strong winds and rain. This calls for a thorough inspection to check if you only need to replace the shingles or if you already have a leak problem underneath it. Contact us if a storm has just passed by your area, so we can inspect for storm damage and do the necessary repairs. Keep Gutters Clean.

How We Keep Our Roof Replacement Keeping the work area free of debris during roofing replacement is not often discussed, but as professional roofers, we believe its a topic worth mentioning. Ill-prepared roofers often neglect the surrounding work areas and end up with anything from loose nails to damaged landscaping that result in untimely landscaping expenses. At West Side Roofing, however, we are aware of and are prepared for such contingencies. Heres how. Issues With Roofing Teardown The real work begins with a complete teardown. The old roofing nails and all is pushed off the roof deck using special shovels, and then pushed off the roofs edge straight onto the back of a dump truck, space permitting. In other areas, debris is pushed straight to the ground. While canvas, tarpaulin, or some other protective sheet typically protects the work area, its often insufficient to protect the landscaping. Sometimes even uncovered windows would get damaged. Professional Roofing Debris Disposal Preventing
