Top 3 Ways to Keep Your Roofing System Reliable – Part 1: Getting Prompt Roof Repairs

Probably the primary course of action that you can take to protect your roof from total destruction is to perform needed repairs as soon as possible. Unless your roof is brand new and has never gone through severe weather, then it will likely need repairs due to damage caused by day-to-day wear and tear.

Part One: Getting Prompt roof Repairs

If you experience the following signs, it may be time to call your roofing contractor and schedule some repairs:

  1. Water leaks –  Perhaps the most obvious sign that a roof will need repairs is roof leaks. However, not all leaks are obvious. In fact, some leaks don't even leave water marks on the ceiling or attic flooring. However, they worsen over time, with damage building up until you're suddenly dealing with roof failure because continuous moisture exposure has gotten the better of your roofing system.
  2. Missing, loose or damaged shingles – If the roof has missing, loose or damaged shingles, these will definitely need to be repaired. The shingle layer is the roof's first line of defense against the elements. So, if there are some pieces missing, damaged or a bit loose, then you can be sure that it's only a matter of time before bigger problems present themselves.
  3. Clogged gutters – If rainwater is overflowing from your gutters, you're looking at a clogged trough preventing water from reaching your downspouts. This leads to water getting into areas where it shouldn't, causing not just damage to your roofing system, but other parts of the home as well, including your landscaping and foundation. If your gutters have been clogged for some time, it's highly possible you have roof damage on your hands, which you should take care of right away with repairs.

The key to making the most of roof repairs is getting one done as soon as possible. After all, roofing problems are easier to deal with while they are small. This is why regular roof inspections are just as important. The sooner a problem is identified, the sooner a fix can be provided to keep it from worsening.

In Part 2, we'll be talking more about roof inspections, a crucial task in keeping your roofing system reliable. Stay tuned!

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
