Repairs are essential to making sure that your roof lasts up to it’s manufacturer warranty date. Unforeseen issues with weather, and other issues such as fall debris from nearby trees, burrowing and or nesting animals, to insects and infestations that might occur can all cause issues with damaging a roof beyond the repair stage. The key is finding the issues early; we recommend a twice yearly inspection by a qualified roof specialist such as ourselves to alleviate any questions or concerns.
Consider this: There are 6 different components that make up a quality roofing system for any structure.
You will find on any number of roofs; from old structures, to new buildings; residential and commercial properties; ventilation is the key to keeping everything dry. A roof system must be able to breath. Without adequate ventilation, a roof system can harbor dew, dampness, mold spores, and most importantly gases and heat. Adequate ventilation plays a key role of not only the safety of those to whom a roof system protects, but also the structure it’s self.
You may not consider them to a part of a roof system, but they do play a vested role in allow gases and smoke to exit your structure or building from furnaces, wood stove and fireplaces, to even manufacturing equipment and machines that have an exhaust system wear those toxins, gases must rise and exit. A working, functional and safe chimney system realizes heavily on a durable, quality roof system. Without the property system to allow gases and smoke to exit a building.
Plays the part of connector. You will find flashing around all ports, vents, chimney systems, sunroofs, skylights and other functional devices that are part of a roofing system require a tie-in or connection to the roof protective device such as shingles, tile, or metal roof systems. Without proper and quality flashing in place at this critical points—a roof system fails allowing everything from damp dew to full rain down pours to insects and debris that will break down any roof system no matter the condition; from brand new installations to 30-year old structures.
GUTTERS AND DOWNSPOUTS
When water is flowing off of a roof towards the roof-line, or down onto lower-roof systems, gardens, walk-ways, pavement and more—a quality gutter system should be in place to help direct the water and debris away from the roof-line. Inadequate gutter systems, or even a gutter system that allows debris build up where water is not able to escape and move away from a roof-line can cause swelling, moss and debris build up that eventually attacks the underlayment–essentially attacking the roof system at it’s outermost edge and then under. Quality gutter installation may be recommended by Statewide Roofing after a roof repair is completed.
The felt or roof lining that is placed on top of the wood or metal structure of a roof system (ie. paneling and trusses) is put into place to cover fasteners and nails, as well as paneling seams attached to the truss system. This felt paper or underlayment is sometime treated with protective
PANELING AND TRUSS SYSTEM (WOOD OR METAL)
The underlying structure of any quality roof system is the structure of the roof braces, uprights and truss system that will hold up your roof on-top of your residence or commercial property. This system must be solid, strong and able to hold considerable weight. A simple weak truss can destroy a roof within months or even days where sagging or bowing issues can become a danger to the interlocking mechanism of shingles, underlayment and flashing usually work together to protect the structure.
