Shreveport Bossier City Roof Repair: How to Get Started!
The Shreveport Bossier City area gets lots of strong windstorms and hail every year. If you look at the number of strong storms along with the brutal summers we get, your roof takes a beating year after year. This will even take a toll on a well-installed roof with good roofing materials.
Every homeowner in our area should first do a roof inspection of their own. From the ground where it’s safe, walk around your home and look at your roof. See if there are any missing shingles or shingles sliding down the roof or just out of place. Use a good pair of binoculars to help you see better.
This will not replace a professional roofer doing a rooftop inspection; however, this is a good start.
Common Roofing Problems for Residential Roofs
When we do a thorough roof inspection of your home, we start looking at the most common areas for roof leaks. Plumbing pipe boots are the most common roof leak issue we see in residential homes. Practically all modern homes have from 1-7 plumbing pipe boots. This will create 1-7 potential areas for a future leak. Most roofers use a cheap plastic 3 in 1 type pipe boot. Over time these pipe boots dry rot and will allow water to penetrate your roof. Other problem areas commonly causing roof leaks.
•Eave & gutter aprons
•Fascia & soffits
•Exhaust Vents & Furnace
Every area of your roof has a different function in protecting your home from the elements. However, our Shreveport and Bossier City areas have stormy seasons every year leaving your home vulnerable to water penetration from your roof.
On asphalt shingle roofs we will check for torn or missing shingles. Nail pops are also very common, we will check for any nails that have backed out of your roof’s deck penetrating your shingles. You would be surprised how much water can leak into such a small hole left by a shingle nail.
If you have a metal roof, we will inspect for metal screws that have backed out of the metal. Over time and as your roof expands and contracts with the heat and cold temperatures, the flexing of the metal causes metal screws and fasteners to back out of the metal panels. Older screws also have a rubber washer under the screw head that dry rots over time and will allow water to penetrate your metal roof.
On tile roofs, we will inspect for missing or cracked tile shingles. We will also look for corroded areas and deteriorated underlayment that can be quickly identified.
On commercial flat roofs, we will look over every square inch for holes, cracks, bubbled areas, blisters, and other signs that may indicate a potential roof leak.
