Roofing Shingle Damage
Aside from providing your home with a pop of color and/or texture, roofing shingles are individual roofing elements that provide a protective barrier over the basic plywood foundation of your roof.
Shingles are installed in an overlapping fashion in order to create a protective shield from heavy winds and rain. When installed and maintained properly, roofing shingles can drastically enhance the longevity of your roof, which is why it’s so important to have the integrity of your shingles inspected regularly.
If your roof has recently been subjected to hail, high winds, or large tree limbs, you may have leaks and not even know it. A compromised shingle will allow water to penetrate at a slow rate. The water soaks into the roof deck causing soft spots and wood rot. If the problem is not addressed, it can drastically reduce the remaining life of your roof.
Don’t let a little leak become a big problem down the road. If you are concerned your roof has suffered damage from impacts or the elements, don’t hesitate to call Mancilla today. Inspections are free, and should you need a repair, you will save $50 on your roof repair of $250 or more!
Flashing, also known as weatherproofing, is an element of your roof made up of impermeable materials that help keep moisture out, preventing leaks from forming. Where a roof may need flashing installed depends entirely on roof type.
Flashing is primarily found in the valleys, edges and joints of the roof. Another way to think about it: anywhere there is a break in your roofing system (caused by pipes, chimneys, skylights, or dormer windows) should have a proper flashing. Flashing can be damaged from age or extremely cold temperatures that cause the flashing to crack, curl upward, or settle and reform into the shape of the house.
These shifts and changes in the flashing material compromise the seal and eventually, lead to serious water damage of the roof’s foundation. Although flashing damage can be a serious problem, the good news is that’s it’s a fairly easy fix.
If you haven’t had your roof flashing recently checked out, our team of roofing inspectors are experts at spotting flashing damage. We’ll work with you, your schedule, and your budget to fix the problem quickly, giving you peace of mind over your home investment.
Fascia / Soffit Damage
Although fascia and soffits provide a finished look for your home, they are actually integral parts of your roofing system. Fascia is a straight, longboard, usually made of wood that makes up the lower edge of a roofline. For home’s that have gutters, the fascia is the piece of wood that those gutters are mounted to.
Soffit, whose root word come from the French meaning, “fixed underneath”are primarily made of vinyl, aluminum, fiber cement or steel material and provides a cover for the eaves of your roof. Together, the fascia and soffit help protect the roof and walls of your home from moisture while also keeping unwanted critters out of your attic.
A roof’s fascia and soffit can become damaged from excess exposure to sun and rain; these elements can eventually cause the wood of the fascia to dry rot and crumble. Squirrels or other small pests can make this damage worse by gnawing on the dry rot, excellerating the extent of damage.
Once the fascia is compromised, moisture will begin to seep in and get stuck between the fascia board and the soffit, not allowing for proper ventilation between the house and the roof. If left untreated, this moisture can wreak havoc on your entire home. From major mold problems and pest infestations, to wood rot that can run the entire length of the fascia and extend even into the wood framing of your home.
