Common Roof Repair Damages
Here are common damages that occur throughout the year that result in leaky roofs when rain falls upon us.
Each type of roof material has its own stack flashings. We recommended installing the right flashings for each type of roof. Some roofers and non-
Flat roofs are designated for commercial property. We are a strong believer in “if its too good to be true, then its probably not true.” Clients that think they saved money often get a flat roof that’s not torched down, and can result in leaks, and further damage. Flat roofs for commercial warehouses and office buildings need the best roofing installers for a roof to last 10-
Shingle Roofs are very popular in Los Angeles. Its affordable, easy labor and often fast to install. Roof installers tend to do the most damage to the roof by installing shingles improperly, flashing being incorrect in size, or bent during or before installation. These tend to be easy fixes for the right roofer, but easily unnoticed when a homeowner does a final review of the roof.
Chimney flashings that have not been replaced for over 15 years will not pass inspection done by to days city inspectors. The outdated materials are not in line with current building code. The damages and lack of quality is respectfully put to rest, while new flashing's are available to do a better job at protecting your home chimney and your home.
Electrical posts are an old way of running electricity, but are still common in Los Angeles homes. Electrical posts have caulking around edges to prevent leaks. Caulking needs to be reapplied and often bad workmanship can leave new caulking jobs that fail to prevent leaks. Hiring an experienced roofing company can get you quality workmanship at a price that’s not far from the unlicensed roofers. Same caulking’s is also applied to bathroom vents, and other ventilation systems that extend passed the roof.
Shingles are materials just like any other material out there. More often than not, shingles can crack from heat, damaged from rodents, and are defective from the factory. Our experienced roofers upon purchase inspect shingles and insure the best materials are installed on our clients roofs. An installer is as good as the material they used to install. We use that philosophy to recommend and install only the best shingle roofs in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is not considered the “windy city”, and this should not be considered a problem. There have been situations where the winds have become strong enough during heavy storms that have blown off loose shingles, and Spanish tile roofs. Hurricanes like El Nino and Jose have done plenty of damage to homes in Los Angeles and our goal is for our clients can safely weather the storm in their home.
