Roofs and roofing materials have evolved to a point where the manufacturers have them down to a science and they are super resilient. Unfortunately, many property owners in Pine, CO handle roofing repairs or maintenance themselves instead of calling a professional. Consequently, it ends up costing them more money than they would have paid a professional to do the job.

Roof Problem Red Flags

  • Interior signs of possible roof damages are water stains, leaks, drips, falling ceiling tiles or drywall, peeling paint, mold, and mildew are evidence of a potential leak in that area of your roof.
  • Ponding Water: This term refers to a pool of water that settles on top of a roof that doesn’t drain off the building. This can cause leaks to form and lead to the roofing materials becoming damaged.

Professional roof inspectors will check for:

  • Severely blistered, curled or split shingles
  • Loose, not sealed, or missing shingles
  • Loose or broken shingles at the ridge and hip lines.
  • “Popped” or exposed nails
  • Flashing missing caulk or sealant
  • Metal flashing that is corroded
  • Dry rot on rubber flashing
  • Damaged or missing flashing
  • Excessive granule loss on shingles
  • Missing Mortar or Cracks in Bricks and Chimneys
  • Check gutters and downspouts
  • Rotting and damaged fascia board
  • Condition of siding above the roof
  • Eaves for proper shingle overhangs
  • Cracks in the roof sheathing
  • Proper attic ventilation
  • Sagging decking (between rafters)
