Common Roofing Problems

When it comes to home maintenance and upkeep, every home has issues with its roof at some point in time. Whether it be leaks, broken shingles, or mold and rot the contractors at ARC have seen it all. With that being said here are the top three common roofing problems and where to look for them.

Clogged Gutters

The buildup of debris adds extra weight to your gutters causing them to bend and pull away from the roof. This also causes water overflow, which ruins your shingles. You want to make sure that you are properly cleaning out your gutters at least once per year to avoid buildup. If you notice that your gutters are rusting, sagging, or pulling away from your roof you should get them repaired or replaced before they cause more damage.

Damaged Shingles

Damaged shingles can lead to a host of problems for homeowners. They can cause leaks, mold and rot, structural damage, and decrease the curb appeal of your home. Small leaks can usually be fixed by patching in the appropriate areas, if left too long though the damage can get much bigger. Get a professional contractor to assess the damage of a roof leak to get the best solution options.

Rotting Fascia

Fascia is the part of your roof that covers the eaves. If the fascia is damaged, it often starts to rot. Rotten fascia can damage your shingles, create mold and if left long enough ruin the structure of your roof.
