If your current shingle roof is “a teenager” get it inspected
For instance, the average trouble-free life of previous-generation asphalt shingle is 15 years. It then enters a constant cycle of leak and repair, then leak again. If your home or business asphalt shingle roof is “in its teens”, schedule an inspection before age leads to big problems.
Last-generation metal needs an inspection after ten years. An expert roofing contractor can tell you if your roof is getting near the end of its lifetime. While newer metal has solved potential leaking, older metal may have rust and corrosion around nails and screws, and will leak.
Being on a roof will put the body in positions that are not comfortable or safe. Make sure to wear rubber sole shoes to prevent slipping. Also use a harness and always work with a buddy.
Take a garden hose and go up to the roof and start spraying in different locations to find the leak. Wait if it’s wintertime because it’s not safe to run water on the roof when it’s freezing out.
Dry rot isn’t related to any type of water damage, but lack of ventilation. If a roof repair is right in the middle of the roof, there is a chance that the plywood might be deteriorating. The roof will actually sag in and cause the roof shingles to get brittle, crack and then leak. Preventing dry rot consists of installing a ridge vent, which will only work if there is a soffit vent. Holes have to be drilled through the soffit vents so cool air comes in through the bottom and pushes the hot air out through the top.

Air conditioning energy savings from installing energy-efficient roof products can be as high as 50 percent. Many new materials are called “reflective”, which means they bounce back the heat of the sun, so it does not pass through to your interior. By cutting your electricity bill each month, the roof begins to pay for itself. In our sultry weather, this savings is for many months out of the year.
The federal government is offering significant tax incentives for roof replacement which results in energy savings. Ask about ENERGY STAR® qualified roof materials during your free consultation.
