One of the greatest investments a homeowner makes is the roof that protects their home. Roofing is a home’s number one defense against weather events. In the Texas Panhandle, roofing is exposed to a wide range of damaging weather. Blazing sun, high winds, rain, hail, and extreme cold can damage roofing materials and cause the roof to begin to break down and wear away. To protect a home, homeowners must ensure their roof is in proper repair. Accent Roofing of Amarillo has the expertise to help homeowners assess and repair their roofing system. If you suspect damage to your roof, Accent Roofing will work with you to inspect your roof and determine the appropriate next steps.
Before beginning minor repairs, it is important to have your roof inspected. The experienced roofing staff of Accent Roofing will begin by determining the age of your roof and the condition of roof components. They will check the attic for signs of water and obvious gaps. On the roof, they will look for buckling shingles, damaged flashing, cracked shingles, or missing shingles. If the damage is severe, it may be more cost effective to replace the roof rather than repair it. The type of roofing system on the home is also a consideration when making decisions concerning roof repair.
Leaking roofing is a common cause for roof repair. There are many potential weaknesses that can cause roof leaks. Damaged flashing, skylights, and old shingles can allow water to make its way into your home. Water can lead to mold and structural damage if the leak is not repaired promptly. Signs of a roof leak include water spots on the ceiling and pooling in the attic. When trying to spot potential leaks, an inspector will check for missing shingles, damaged flashing, and other compromised roofing. Quick detection and repair will prevent further damage.
After a storm, a roof is particularly vulnerable. High winds can cause untold damage and allow water to enter. A quick inspection can reveal storm damage and allow for quick repairs. Hail can cause dimples in shingles and granules to fill the gutters. Even though all hail damage may not be immediately visible, it can weaken the roof and lead to leaking later. Older roofing is more apt to be damaged by storms and hail. Accent Roofing can inspect your roof after a storm to ensure that no damage has occurred.
If you feel your roof is in need of repair, Accent Roofing of Amarillo can provide expert assessment and advice. Their professional staff is dedicated to keeping your roof up to date and your home safe.
