Common Roof Problems

Not all roof problems can be been seen from the ground or identified by the homeowner. You should have a professional roof inspection done periodically to detect minor problems before they become major problems causing structure damage to home. The problems vary depending on the roof type: Shingle, Tile, or Flat. Some of these issues can be resolved with a roof repair to extend the life of the roof. Other problems will require a roof replacement.
