Roofing Improvement

Table of Contents

Winter isn’t over yet, and your home needs the best protection it can get during this season before we head into warmer and kinder weather. Your roof may undergo harsh wind damage, leakage into your home’s foundation, or deep punctures due to heavy debris. Whatever the problem, know that there are solutions. And, if you’re having trouble finding those solutions on your own, we’re here to help. We’ve assessed some key indicators of potential roof failure and need for replacement, so you’ll know when it’s time to call in professional help.

Be on the lookout for these 3 signs of roof failure and improper installation:

Cracks in sealant

This issue is most common with aging roofs but can also be the cause of a rushed application. Sealant needs time to bond, and if this process is monitored incorrectly, there could be big consequences for your roof. As time progresses, the sealant or caulking weakens around penetration locations and eventually cracks, leading to leaks in your framing.

Exposed interior layers

Sealant isn’t the only thing that can crack or break off. Your roof is exposed to many different elements and weather conditions every day, which can cause severe damage. Parts of the material may crack or reveal the interior, softer and less protective layers of your roof, such as felt. The result could include massive leaks and presents challenges to the interior of your home as well.

Nail misplacement

Nail misplacement is not necessarily a result of winter, but it could be due to improper installation in the past by an irresponsible third party. If nails are not properly placed, your entire roof’s integrity is compromised, and the nails won’t be able to stop the flow of water from seeping into your rafters and foundation.

Don’t leave your home susceptible to this kind of damage. If you notice missing material on your roof, sealant cracks, or nail misplacement, please give 663 Exteriors a call at (330)-466-6920 for roof installation in a proper and professional manner.
