What To Look For When Inspecting A Tacoma Roof For Damage
There are a few areas that are critical to inspect on your home where most roof leaks occur. This is especially critical after you come out off Fall, Winter and into Spring and Summer as there are many potential “hidden dangers” on your roof. Here is a short list of what to look for.
- Overflowing Gutters- Gutters that are clogged and full of water can cause damage to your home in a few ways. They can fail under the weight of the water and separate from the fascia board. Another potential problem is water in full gutters can be driven by the rain under the shingles and rot out roof sheathing. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clean of all pine needles, leaves and other debris.
- Damaged Vents & Pipe Boots- Vents and pipe boots are a critical leak area on a Tacoma roofing system. It’s common for water to penetrate through a nail hole or for the neoprene pipe boot and deteriorate over the years.
- Blown-Off Shingles- Shingle blow-off occurs when strong winds rip a shingle off of your roof. Shingles are typically warranted for a 110 mph wind gust with 4-5 nails in them or 130 mph with a 6 nail application. The wind rating however is dependent on if the installer properly places the nails on the manufacturers nail line. The Tacoma roofing contractor must also make sure they have the compression of the gun set correctly so the nails do not blow through the shingle or fail to properly secure the shingle. If your shingles or ridge cap seem to be loose or missing call us today to come out and take a look!
- Debris In The Vally- A very simple issue can become complex very quickly. Built up leaves and pine needles in the valley can act as a dam for running water. The water when backed up can work its way under the valley shingles and damage the underlayment and sheathing.
