Why is My Roof Leaking?
There are numerous factors that can cause your roof to develop a leak. Age is a big one! Both roofing materials and flashings around chimneys and vents deteriorate with age. In addition to that, nuisance wildlife, such as raccoons and squirrels may try to build a nest in your attic, ripping up your roof in the process. We also find that some roofs were not properly installed in the first place. When contractors forget to secure flashing or do a poor job with your skylight, the integrity of your roof may be compromised even though it might not be that old.
Roof Systems We Repair
There are several different roofing materials commonly used in Westminster, Maryland residential construction projects. At Platinum Exteriors we specialize in the following roofing system repairs:
- Asphalt shingle repair
- Metal roofing repair
- Flat roofing repair
Each of these roof systems has its unique issues and requires a different repair approach. For example, metal roofs may leak through the nail holes and asphalt shingles curl and crack as they weather.
Should I Consider Replacement?
If your roof is 15 years old or older, it may be a good candidate for replacement. Patching holes on a failing roof is a “band-aid” solution that won’t provide long-term relief. You can actually save money by a timely replacement and avoid sinking hundreds of dollars into repairs that will eventually have to be taken down. Your Carroll County, Maryland roofing contractor should be able to advise you on your best options. Platinum Exteriors will be happy to take a look at your roof and offer our expert guidance.
