Common Residential Roofing Problems

Lack of Maintenance

Regular inspection of your roof can save you thousands of dollars in the long-run. Monitor your roofs health by looking for minor issues and repairing them before they escalate. By catching issues early you can maximize your roof’s lifespan and reduce unexpected expenses.

What to Look for When Assessing Roof Damage 

Start in your attic and look for signs of leaks or water damage. If you find water stains on your attic ceiling or walls, you likely need roofing repairs or a roof replacement.

You can also look for evidence of roof damage from the ground. Check for missing shingles or missing pieces of metal flashing. Also check your roof vents, flashing and metal valleys for deterioration.

Here are some types of roofing shingles to consider:

  • Asphalt – One of the most popular and affordable shingle types, asphalt shingles come in a variety of colours and styles, including charcoal, weathered wood, barkwood, and slate shingles. 
  • Fibreglass – Made from layers of waterproof coating and a fibreglass base mat, fibreglass shingles are known for being lightweight, fire and UV ray resistant, and durable. They often come with a long warranty. 
  • Organic – Organic shingles are waterproof, relatively inexpensive, and heavier than fibreglass shingles. These shingles are made from a variety of materials including recycled cardboard, wood chips, rags, and paper.
  • Tile – Homeowners looking for a stylish shingle should try tile. Able to be formed into various shapes, tile shingles offer a unique aesthetic for your roof that is also long-lasting.
  • Wood – If you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly roof, wood shingles are the answer. They’re durable, energy-efficient, and are available in gorgeous cedar and redwood. 
  • Metal – Does your home have a steep or flat roof? Metal shingles might be a good choice. These shingles are affordable and long-lasting. Copper, zinc, aluminum, and tin are just some of the metals available for this shingle type.
  • Slate – Slate shingles, while pricey, are very durable often lasting somewhere between 80 to 100 years and making your initial investment worthwhile. These shingles are water resistant and great for really cold climates. Slate shingles also come in various colours from black and grey to red and green.
