Winter Inspections with a Fresno Roofing Professional
.Most people don't need a Fresno Roofing Company to tell them the value of having a strong, working roof equipped to withstand the weather here in California. But, what many homeowners neglect to consider is how rapidly most minor roofing problems can escalate into all-out nightmares.
The easiest and most economical way to guarantee your roof is prepared to withstand the impacts of temperature fluctuation and heavy winds is to schedule an inspection with a Fresno roofer. A professional will be able to distinguish and resolve the issues discussed in this article and any other's before they get bigger.
Structural Roofing Damage
Typically damage will start out small, but when left undetected these insignificant problems can become much larger over time. What started out as a missing shingle and a minor roof repair, could end up requiring an entire portion of the roof to be replaced when unattended to. An inspection by a Fresno Roof Repair expert will determine if damage has been caused by any of the following:
- Cracks, holes or leaks
- Damaged pipe vents or boots
- Shingles that are rotted, cracking, buckled or warped
- Broken or missing slate/tile shingles
- Flashing that is bent or compromised
- Damaged or absent chimney caps
Wear & Tear: Aging Components of a Roofing System
California rooftops get hammered during the spring and summer months that result in many homes requiring Fresno roof repair services. Intense heat & sun, hurricane and tornado winds, and torrential downpours can bring damage to the most critical components of your roof. Since the majority of us reside at ground level, it tends to be difficult to identify issues with the bare eye. A thorough inspection will enable a Fresno Roofing professional to look for:
- Shingles or slate that is aging and/or weak
- Caulk that is cracked or split
- Buckling or blistered shingles
- Missing or non-flush nails
- Erosion or rusting on a metal roof
When you consider the option of a roof repair over a full roof replacement, scheduling an inspection is a far more economical and preventative option. Don't wait, call Brads Quality Roofing today at (559) 439-1554.
