Common Issues 

Your roof can face many issues, some of which will be discussed with you in great detail, bear in mind that if you are facing the same issues discussed, then it would be wise to get the opinion of Riverfront Roofing. You can get your roof repaired or replaced in due time. In a nutshell, you want to look for the following signs:

Water Damage

This is one of the most obvious indications that your roof is in need of repair or replacement, depending on the situation. Water damage can be very dangerous for your roof. Water not only weakens the roof, but it weakens the whole structure of your house. Water can seep in the walls, leading to moisture getting stuck in them, and after some time, moisture getting stuck in your celling.

Water damage can be as easily avoided if repairs are made in due time, but if ignored, it could lead to devastating effects. Water damage becomes amplified in the winter season, as water that remains stuck in the cracks turns to ice in the winter this effectively makes the initial crack bigger.

So if you are experiencing water damage then the best thing for you is to have that damage repaired immediately.

Missing Shingles

Missing shingles also contribute to water damage. Singles get damaged and broken over time, strong gusts of wind can also make your shingles fly away. When a shingle is misplaced from its original position, it leaves a gap open which is vulnerable to moss, rust, and eventually water damage because this gap keeps on letting water pass through it.

Missing shingles can be found in your yard, these shingles are usually blown away by the wind but in some cases animals tear and chew these shingles. Once you start finding missing shingles, let it be known that you need roofing repairs immediately.

Cracked Shingles

Cracked shingles are typically on the verge of being broken, once a shingle breaks it becomes vulnerable to environmental factors, such as wind storms. After that shingle disappears, then the natural process of moss and other algae starts to take over and cover the gap. We have discussed above the effects of missing shingles in detail and a cracked single is the first indication that your roof needs repair.

Cracked Flashing

Cracked flashing is also a sign that your roof needs repairs. Cracked flashing can be fixed pretty easily if it is acted upon timely.

Rotten Plumbing Jacks

There are many vents that come in and out of your roof, these vents usually get rusted after some time. and when these vents collect enough rust, they get jammed. The vents are technically placed into position and usually, you need professionals to help in order to repair or replace these vents.

Inspecting Your Roof

If you have installed a warranty-based item on your roof, then you need a proper inspection from the professional, if you attempt to repair these items then you can void their warranty pretty easily. If in your initial inspection you find things that need repair, then you can have them repaired by professionals. Having it repaired by professionals also typically means that your warranty is not voided.

Flat Roofs

There are many types of roofs and the type of roof determines the level of work required for its repair. If you have a flat roof and you are experiencing simple roofing problems, then they can often be fixed fairly easily by applying roof coating.

Generally speaking, commercial landowners prefer the roof to be flat as possible because flat roofs typically cost less as compared to any other roof design. A flat roof also enables the owners to store more things on it, a business owner will always prefer functionality over appearances.

A business owner can have HVAC with other thing stored on a flat roof of a commercial building. If you too have a flat roof, then it is very easy to inspect. There is no danger of falling off a flat roof because there isn’t any slope on the roof. Having listed all the positives, you must also know there are some drawbacks to flat roofs as well.

The Drawbacks of Flat Roof Include:

  • Leaking when it rains

  • Puddles of water collected on the roof

  • Requires frequent maintenance and inspection

  • Flat roofs are variable to damage 

How To Seal The Whole Roof

It is possible to have a watertight and waterproof roof coating system? If you do coat your roof in a roof coating system then you can make your roof work at its best. This is a money-saving method that is used by many commercial roof owners. This can also save you time that would have gone into the inspection of the roof.

If your roof is looking out of shape, then you can easily have it covered instead of replacing or repairing the entire roof. This roof sealing mechanism is the perfect solution if your roof itself is tearing. This is often the most economical method of protecting your roof from any leaks. Moreover, the covering process is fairly simple, and the best part of it is that you won’t be able to notice it.

Rubber Roofing

Rubber roofing is the go-to material for those who want to cut on their electricity bill. The way rubber roofing works is that it reflects the heat coming from the sun. This effectively cuts the electricity bill because less energy is used to cool the building. Rubber roofing has also the ability to prevent leaks for a long duration of time, along with saving energy.

Metal Roofing

You can use rust resistance spray on your metal roofing, this makes your roof stand out and also makes the roof look brand new. Metal roofing is best known to prevent leaks in the future and you can consider this as a future investment!

Low Sloped Roofs

Low sloped roofs are very popular with factories and warehouse owners. You can find many low sloped roofs on commercial

buildings. Some roofs may look like flat roofs but upon closer inspection, you can find a pitch factor in said roof.

Advantages of Low Sloped Roofs

There cannot be any water puddles on the roof due to the slope. Working on these types of roofs can be easier compared to high-pitched roofs.  Installations of these roofs are also easy on low sloped roofs.

Disadvantages Of Low Sloped Roofs

The one major drawback of a low-sloped roof is that it allows snow and other debris to be set on it, hence if there is snow on the roof, getting it off feels like a huge chore.
