How to Detect and Repair a Leaking Roof

Posted on August 29th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

Fixing a leaky roof is not a job for the common homeowner. Unless you have the proper training, tools and safety knowledge, it’s best to hire an experienced and licensed roofing expert to make sure the job is done correctly. But you can still check for leaks. Here’s what to expect when you do a roof leak inspection before deciding on a roof leak repair specialist.

Repair a Leaking Roof

How Roof Leaks Become Problems

Roof leaks can develop from multiple scenarios, such as severe weather that leads to damaged or missing shingles. Sometimes water leaks originate from loose flashings around vents and chimneys. After penetrating the roofing, water can cause damage as it flows through sheathing, rafters and ultimately ceilings. Water can cause further damage to furniture and carpeting.

Searching for Roof Leaks

The first place to check for a roof leak is in the attic, bring a flashlight for better visibility. Be careful to watch your step so that you are only walking on secure framing, as certain types of ceilings are not designed to support the weight of a person. Study the framing for wetness, stains, watermarks, and wood discoloration. Look for cracks in the roof where sunlight shines through. Keep in mind that even overlapping shingles may allow water to seep in.

One of the keys to preventing high maintenance costs is to keep the attic dry and free of moisture. If you detect any dripping, put a bucket on the floor to keep the water from spreading and causing damage. If you detect a leak but cannot find where it is coming from, wait for dry weather and then conduct a water test in which someone sprays water on the roof at various levels, while another uses a bucket to catch the water internally and searches for leaks with a strong flashlight.

Roof Leak Repair

Once you find leaks, it’s best to document them either with chalk or write down where they are, which will save time on professional roof leak repair. The methods used for repair will depend on your roofing materials and how the roof was built. In general, fixing a roof leak usually involves covering the leak with heavy polyethylene sheeting or metal flashing.

Make sure you are dealing with a roofing repair specialist who is licensed, certified, insured, and bonded. Using unskilled labor leads to unreliable results and may even void a warranty. Getting your roof inspected annually will help prevent future leaks.

Roof Restoration Restores Your Roof at a Reasonable Cost

Posted on May 29th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

There are three main options when it comes to fixing your roof. Total replacement, roof repair, and roof restoration. Totally replacing your roof can be costly, while repairs are best suited when only a small portion of the roof has been damaged. Roof restoration can save you both time and money, especially if the roof is relatively new.

Roof Restoration

When Is Roof Restoration a Better Option than Replacement?

Most roofs can last up to 20 years if properly maintained. If your roof span has more than five years or more before it will need to be replaced, restoration is a sensible option. A roof that is constantly exposed to strong sunlight is also a good candidate for restoration.

Another reason for restoration is if you plan on selling your home in the near future.

What Is Involved in the Roof Restoration Process?

During a roof restoration project, the first step is to clean the roof, removing any moss, lichens, or mold. If you have a metal rook you need to look closely and remove any rust that may be present. Closely check any seams, fasteners or flashing and apply a sealant, if necessary. If you notice any areas where repairs need to be made, they must be completed before you finish the restoration.

The final step is to apply the desired coating. Examples include silicone-based coatings, acrylic, and asphalt emulsion.

What Are the Advantages of Roof Restoration?

Roof restoration offers many advantages over and above just saving you money. Restorations take less time and are more convenient. When a reflective coating is used, a restoration can actually lower your heating and cooling bills.

Restoring a roof also reduces the amount of materials you use in the process.

Roof restoration is a great idea when you don’t need a new roof, but repairs won’t really solve your problem. Discuss your options with an independent roofing contractor so that you know all of your options. They can offer advice on what type of coating will work best and inspect your roof so that you know all of the necessary repairs are taken care of before you start the project.

5 Tips to Repair Leaks in Your Roof

Posted on February 27th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

When attempting to repair a roof leak, the following tips will help you fix the leak and prevent further damage to the roof and interior of the home. It is important to find and repair the leak as quickly as possible so the wood and other materials near the leak do not rot or become moldy.

Read on to know about some commonly asked questions on roof leak repair.

Roof Leak Repair

How Can You Find Roof Leaks?

Roof leak repair is normally easier than tracking one down because it develops away from the location where it appears. A leaky roof can manifest itself into wet stains that may extend all over your ceilings or travel down your walls. Roof repair requires proper leak detection and based on the specific issues you can fix the same either on your own or hire professional roofing services. Here are some tips to find roof leaks:

  • A detailed inspection of the exterior roof, as well as a close review of the interior of the attic, will help you detect the location of the leak.

  • Think where water could course or pass through; detect loose nails, examine tiles, and look for an opening between your hardwoods for indication.

  • Search for causes of a leak like holes, cracks, and gaps in daylight, as external light will then transmit properly to help detect them easily. You can also make use of a bright flashlight.

  • Observe the ceiling or the walls for watermarks and analyze the source from there.

How Can You Find Difficult Roof Leaks?

  • At the time or soon after a heavy rain, get inside the attic with a flashlight carefully avoiding stepping through the ceiling. During the lack of rainfall, completely wet down the roof to develop a man-made leak.

  • Analyze the roof decking and rafters above the point where the ceiling is wet in the attic.

  • Observe any water stains or wet spots up the rafters or roof decking to their highest point.

  • Evaluate down from the rooftop to the utmost position of the leak and including gable edge to the leak.

  • In case of the dry roof, climb the roof and assign the measurements to the roof letting any overhang on the roof boundary.

  • Analyze the roofing closely for a leak mark at the position you measured.

  • If the source of the leak isn’t visible, proceed to search higher up on the roof, as water can travel down behind the shingles prior to appearing in the attic decking or rafters.

What Are the Solutions for a Small Roof Leak?

Once you have detected the source of your leak, it’s advisable to fix it as soon as possible before it gets any worse. While some repairs demand professional help, others can be handled through your simple DIY skills.

  • Tiny holes in a plane roof can be fixed by patching with a specific type of primer and patching system.

  • Repair an asphalt shingles because a damaged shingle can cause rains to penetrate close to the nails that can lead to damaging of your house.

  • Laminated roofing shingles are broader than regular asphalt and may need longer nails or fastener to provide complete security.

  • Repair a leak in flashing because leaks can be found to occur where flashing has been badly set up or has failed.

  • Regular pruning of the protruding tree branches will also help keep the roof free of debris while maintaining your gutter’s cleanliness.

  • You can easily repair walls and dormers that are weather-stripped and replace them if needed. For cracked, rotten or missing siding, substituting with a new piece is advised.

Do Home Insurance Cover Roof Leaks?

In certain instances, home insurance covers the cost of roof repairs like the blowing away of shingles due to a wind storm or destruction of your roof by a heavy snowstorm. This implies that if the damage occurs due to an unavoidable event, you’re normally covered. You won’t be covered if the casualty is an outcome of neglect. That means you’ve either ignored to conduct proper roof maintenance or the impairment could have been prevented with better care, thus ruling out the possibility of insurance coverage.

Be Wary of “Storm Chaser” Fraud

Posted on September 21st, 2017 by Applied Roofing Services

After a storm or natural disaster, many people come outside to see damage to the roofs of their homes. This is often followed by several individuals knocking on your door offering to fix your roof. While it can seem like a convenient option, there are many reasons not to trust these "storm chasers" with one of the most important structures on your home. 

Storm

What is a "storm chaser"?

Storm chasers are unlicensed individuals who take advantage of people after a storm has damaged many local families’ homes. They will drive through neighborhoods and knock on doors where they see that the home has been damaged. Some will leave flyers with a phone number and either no name or a fake company name. There will rarely, if ever, be any information about licensing, insurance or an address for the company.

It is easy to be taken in by these fly-by-night operations. They often show up before the homeowner has a chance to get estimates from legitimate companies in the area. Additionally, they will often promise rates that are far less expensive than what professional roofers may charge.

The problem is, a homeowner who chooses one of these companies has few protections. If your contractors do substandard work, there is no licensing board that can take them to task. If they damage your home, there is no insurance fund that can ensure that you are compensated for your losses.

Worst of all, if they leave without completing the job, you have nowhere to turn to recover your lost money. These individuals will often ask for at least half of their money up front. When they leave town, sometimes without ever showing up for one day of the job, you are out the cash and still have a storm damaged roof.

Finding a Qualified Roofer

To ensure that your home is repaired quickly and correctly, it is important to choose a professional and qualified company for the job. A few ways to make sure that your roofing company is legit:

  • Never do business with someone who comes to you. Legitimate roofing companies do not need to canvas neighborhoods looking for customers.

  • Ask for a physical address. If someone one wants to work on your roof, you need to know where to find them if there is a problem.

  • Ask about licensing and insurance. Many states license roofers and require that they carry insurance. Your roofing company should be able to tell you about local requirements and how they have fulfilled them. If you’re selling in the future, the last thing you’ll want is for an unpermitted repair to be discovered in an inspection that hinders the sale.

  • Ask for references. The roof of your home is one of its most important features. Make sure that the person who you work with has a track record full of satisfied customers.

Protecting Your Home and Your Future

Roofing repair may be an investment, but it’s one of those areas where acting soon is a good idea — the cost of damages due to a damaged roof can really add up. A qualified professional roofer can do the job right to ensure that pests and the elements cannot get inside. By taking a cautious route, you can ensure that all problems are addressed and that your home is protected from further damage.

4 Reasons That Lead to Emergency Roof Repairs

Posted on April 11th, 2017 by Applied Roofing Services

Home owners with roofing system are always concerned about the roof repair. Though it’s not usually required if you’ve installed a quality roof under proper guidance, there are still many factors that adversely damage your roof. Apart from that, some unexpected situations call for emergency roof repairs.

Emergency Roof Repairs

Here are the most common causes that result in need for an emergency roof repair:

Natural Disasters

  • Strong Wind
    Constantly blowing strong wind is a common reason for emergency roof repairs. Due to constant wind, roof shingles are damaged or even blown away. It is important to check your roof if your area has experienced high winds.

  • Heavy Rain
    Long hours of heavy rain weaken the soil which affects the trees near your house. These trees or their limbs might fall off on your roof. This will significantly damage your roofing system resulting in emergency roof repairs.

  • Hailstorms
    It is the most damaging natural disaster to a home’s roof. In these storms, large chunks of hail slam onto your roof that severely affects the roofing system, sometimes they even create a hole.

Ignoring Roof Maintenance
Lack of regular roof inspection is the most common reason for emergency roof repairs. If you are not inspecting your roof on a regular basis, you won’t be able to notice those faulty parts like damaged gutters, broken shingles or cracked flashing. This will eventually turn out as roofing emergency. Try to be consistent in your roof maintenance schedule. This will keep you away from emergency roof repairs.

Defect in Manufacturing
It is always advised to pay proper attention while choosing your roofing contractors. Discuss about the quality of material they’ll be using for the construction. Never choose cheap materials or low rate service providers. You might save while roofing your house but it’ll affect you later on, where you’ll have to spend much more than you saved. Cheap materials will not last long and they will lead to emergency roof repairs.

Fire Peril
These are the accidental causes which can completely destroy your roofing system. There are many things that lead to these fire hazards like electrical short circuit, playing around with match sticks or even lightning strikes.

Reasons might be any but eventually they lead to emergency roof repairs. Regular roof inspection and maintenance is required to prevent emergency roof repairs.

7 Common Reasons for Roof Leaks You Should Know

Posted on January 23rd, 2017 by Applied Roofing Services

Roof leak is a matter of concern for every house owner. This is a very common problem that can lead to premature failure and reduced life for the roof. There are many reasons that lead to a leaking roof which you need to keep an eye on to prevent serious roof issues in the future.

Roof Leak Repair

Here are some of the most common reasons for roof leaks you should know to avoid major roof issues:

  1. Flashing
    A roof leak because of damaged flashing is very common. Thin sheets of metal strips or fittings used to cover the seams or transition points in a roof is termed as a flashing material or flashing point. Roof leaks are generally caused where flashing is missing, corroded, or damaged.

  2. Ice Damps
    This is mostly seen in areas with heavy snowfall. Due to snowfall, ice forms a ridge at the end of the roof and stops the melting snow from draining off. The snow that is lying on the top of your roof melts due to the heat that is coming from the attic despite the freezing temperature outside. And this melting snow runs between your roof causing roof leaks.

  3. Cracked Chimney
    Damaged chimney is also one of the major reasons for roof leaks. Damaged area along the mud cap, top of the chimney, and holes near the joint where the chimney connects to the roof are some of the main spots that lead to leaking roofs.

  4. Gutters Are Jammed
    Clogged gutters severely affect the roof. Because the gutters are jammed, they don’t allow water to pass into the downspouts. Due to this, water is clogged on top of the roof and slowly starts to enter the attic that forms a dampened area which turns into a roof leak.

  5. Old Roofing System
    If you are using the roof material from a long period of time, it might turn brittle and crack which can lead to a roof leak. This happens due to the contraction and expansion with change in weather and harsh rays from the sun. So, keep an eye on your roofing material. If it is too old, it is better to replace it or it will damage other parts of your house as well.

  6. Parts of Roof Missing
    Damaged, cracked, cupped shingles or missing parts is very a common reason that affects the roof. It happens generally due to bad weather, high wind, rainstorms, and corrosion of the roofing material. There could be many reasons, but it directly affects your roof’s water resistance system. Due to these missing or damaged parts, water can get into the path to passing beneath the attic and lead to roof leaks.

  7. Condensation Beneath the Attics
    This usually happens due to adverse weather change. Attics are trapped between outside’s freezing temperature and inside’s warm temperature. This leads to condensation and mold growth to form beneath the roof surface. This leads to dampening of the roof system.

Roof leak repairs require a lot of time and money. So it’s better to have an idea of what’s wrong with your roof before you get in touch with any licensed roofing service contractor for residential roof leak repairs.

6 Signs That Your Roof Needs Repair or Replacement

Posted on April 21st, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

The condition of your roof has an impact on the overall value of your home. If you have to make a decision between replacing your roof and making a few simple repairs, you will want to contact a roof repair service that has the experience and expertise to give you sound advice. Only after a thorough professional roof inspection you will be able to wisely contemplate on the idea of a roof replacement.

Roof Needs Repair or Replacement

Here are a few signs to indicate whether your roof may need a repair or a replacement:

  1. Leaking Ceiling
    One of the biggest indicators of how severe a roof problem may be is, if the ceilings inside your home are showing any kind of damage. Water spots and stains can indicate leaks from many different areas. If leaks are left unattended, they can lead to mold or other problems. Consider a roof replacement to prevent major issues in the future.

  2. Weather Conditions
    Know what type of weather the roof is constantly being exposed to. This can also provide contractors an idea as to what condition the roof is really in. Extremely high temperatures and heavy rains can take their toll on a shingle roof. Storms and snow can also make your roof vulnerable to damage. Fix minor roof repairs before any disaster happens.

  3. Mounting Maintenance Costs
    There is no problem in patching your roof until you encounter a bigger issue. However, when patching causes it to start to look like a checkerboard, then it’s time to replace. Additionally, if the cost of maintaining the roof is beginning to exceed the cost of replacing the roof, a contractor may recommend foregoing future repairs and opting to install an entirely new roof.

  4. Roof Aging Problems
    A typical roof lasts for 15-50 years depending on the selection of material quality. Confirm through your home inspection report ( obtained during your house purchase) to ascertain the age of your roof. A professional contractor providing roof repair service will also be able to determine the longevity of a roof by its condition and how well it has held up over time.

  5. Shingles Curling and Buckling
    Another indication that you may require a new roof is when the shingles have started curling or buckling. Analyze the slopes of your home that receive direct sunlight, in order to look out for signs of curling shingles and their missing granules. This can give information on whether or not shingles have exceeded their life expectancy, and also provide an idea on if a roof is defective.

  6. Sunlight Through the Roof Boards
    If you experience a soft spot or trampoline bounce while walking on the roof, it can indicate damage in the underlying decking due to moisture. Examine your attic to locate if there is any daylight peeping in through the roof boards. Also, ensure there is no moisture present in the insulation in order to get the issue resolved soon.

    1. It’s important to look out for these signs and repair or replace your damaged roof before it causes any further problems to your property.

      Here a few frequently asked questions on roof replacement:

      How Often Do You Need a New Roof?
      Depending on the factors like the material used, ventilation, humidity, and temperature, an average roof may require a replacement after 15-50 years. You should hire a roofing contractor to get annual roof inspection to determine the condition of your roof and confirm about its replacement requirement.

      When Does Roof Need to be Replaced?
      You should examine your roof annually, for any initial signs that may indicate either, the need for repairs to be made or a definite roof replacement. Discovering early damages will save you from unexpected trouble and prevent your budget from being disturbed. Also, you will avoid potential safety risks to you and your family.

      How Do You Know if You Have a Leak in Your Roof?
      If you notice a discolored or a damp spot on your ceiling, it’s an obvious signal that your roof has leakage problems. Damp or wet spots develop after a prolonged weak point, usually beginning with extreme weather conditions and shingle impairment. A leaky roof can lead to grave and expensive damage, like mold and rotting and interior damage, subsequently requiring a complete roof replacement.

      How Do You Fix a Leaky Roof? Does it Need Repair or Replacement?
      To avoid any serious issue due to a leaky roof, ensure to get it thoroughly inspected annually for wet stains, especially after a heavy rain . Additionally, inspect for perforations near chimneys, skylights, and around shingles. Oftentimes, a leak will first appear in your attic and will remain unnoticed, until it relocates to a living area, leaving you without the option of a simple repair job. Hire professional services if you ever need, major repairing done.

      What to Expect When Getting a New Roof?
      Getting a new roof is a messy affair, as it will create noise, vibrations, dust, debris and what not. Moreover, there will be chaos in your driveway. Expect trucks with supplies and materials for new roof, to hog up space. Plan ahead to get everything done smoothly and be prepared for a few things that you can’t avoid.

      • First of all, start communicating with the contractor about getting new roof. Ask him how much time it will require from start to finish. Think about it, and don’t hesitate to ask questions.

      • Secondly, a new roof installation will naturally involve noise and vibrations, so you must be prepared for it. Take special care if you have any small children or pets at home.

      • Make sure car parking is shifted to another place and no vehicle is under the roof that has to be redone because falling debris may cause serious injuries.

      What to Consider When Replacing a Roof?

      • When you have decided to replace your roof,you must start planning for it wisely. Roofs are durable structures, so we must take extra care when choosing materials and supplies for it.

      • Shop around and do a good amount of research so that you can get the best deals. In addition, roofing projects may require permits. This is why it’s important to take the services of a reputed roofing services provider who can manage all of these hassles for you.

      • Once the roofing has been replaced, there will probably be nails and small debris on the ground and in the driveway. A good roofing services provider will clean all these with the help of a giant magnet.

      What Are Some Important Roof Replacement Tips?

      • Get the guidance of a qualified roofing services provider to avoid any kind of hassle related to paperwork.

      • Get the permission for roof replacement from your municipality or local government.

      • Wait for right time and right weather before going ahead with a roof replacement.

      • Roofing materials like wood clay metal and slate are available in the market but asphalt shingles are a great choice as they are easy to install and are amazingly affordable at the same time.

Common Problems With Flat Roofs and Tips for Fixing Them

Posted on March 25th, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

For all of their advantages, flat roofs also have some drawbacks. That doesn’t mean, however, that they are problematic. You just need to know what the issues are and how to deal with them effectively to prevent leaks and other types of damage. With proper care and maintenance, most flat roofs hold up extremely well during all types of weather.

Flat Roof Repairs

Drainage
One of the main concerns over the choice of a flat roof is whether or not the roof is actually flat and if water will drain properly. A flat roof is not flat at all. It has a slight slope that is designed specifically for water runoff. This allows for sufficient drainage and prevents water from ponding in one or more given areas.

Economical
Many people choose flat roofs because they are more economical than a peaked roof. There is much less wasted space when a flat roof is used and the energy costs associated with keeping the building comfortable are also dramatically reduced. Fewer materials are needed as well.

Using a Waterproof Membrane
A major cause of most leaks when it comes to a flat roof is the waterproof membrane and whether it was installed correctly. Poor workmanship and materials can lead to cracks and openings. Only allow skilled tradesmen to install your waterproof membrane. When properly installed, a waterproof membrane can last as long as 20 to 30 years with little to no damage.

Additional Maintenance
A flat roof must be properly maintained. This means regular maintenance checks and the application of waterproof sealants to help prevent moisture from building up and leaks from occurring. Water run-off outlets should be checked often to keep them free of debris. If too much debris collects, water can accumulate and stress the roof.

Effective Tips & Tricks to Handle Emergency Roofing Repairs

Posted on March 2nd, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

A roofing system is one of the most important features of your home, since it protects you, your family and everything inside. It is the first line of defense from natural hazards like wind, fire, rain, hail, ice and extremely hot and humid temperature. Being one of the most vulnerable parts of your property, a roofing system is always exposed to changing weather which deteriorates its quality with time. This also increases the risks of damage and can cause an emergency roof repair situation.

What Can Cause Emergency Roof Repair
Most of us shudder when there is a call for emergency roof repair or replacement. But rather than making a hustle, you need to be aware of the common reasons that damage your roof. This will help in protecting your roof in the best possible ways. Usually homeowners notice the need of emergency roof repair just after a heavy storm or rain. But there are many other factors that adversely damage your roof resulting in emergency roof repairs.

Applied Roofing Services – the full-service roofing company serving all of the Southern California shares effective tips and tricks to handle emergency roofing repair situations without any hassle.

Tips to Handle Emergency Roof Repairs

Wait for the Right Time
If your roof has been hit by a hail storm, heavy snow or rain, it is advisable to wait until the weather improves. If it’s night, wait until the morning for proper lighting conditions. Don’t take any action in a hurry and put your life in danger just to assess the roof condition during severe and harsh weather.

Quick Inspection
Once the weather improves, it is the time for a quick roof inspection. If your roof hasn’t been damaged a lot, you can follow quick DIY tips to repair your roof on a basic level. Minor damages can be resolved by the homeowners themselves, but if it has been damaged badly, you must contact an expert roofing contractor.

Temporary Protection
This is one of the most important steps you must take to avoid any further damage to your roof and other household items. A protective cover or temporary roof must be installed to avoid further damage to the internal and structural damage. If water is seeping in, shift all costly furniture and belongings to another room.

Preventive Measures (Water Damage)
If your damage has led to a puddle of water, it should be removed immediately. Don’t let your roof collect rainwater as it can further damage your roofing system. If left unattended, stagnant water can be a favorable place for insects to breed.

Hiring Experts
If your existing roofing system needs a heavy repair or a complete replacement, don’t delay it further and contact a professional roofing company.
