Some of the Most Common Roof Problems

Some of the Most Common Roof Problems

What are some of the most common roof problems? Let’s have a look

As summer starts to wind down, you’re probably thinking about what damage has been done to your roof. The fall is quickly approaching, and that means you should get your roof fixed up as soon as possible. What are some of the most common roof problems? Let’s have a look. 


Leaks are annoying, and they can cause you many other problems you don’t feel like dealing with. For instance, you could have more water bills to pay. The insulation in your attic could be ruined. Then there is the growth of mold and mildew, both of which can cause health issues for everyone under your roof. Your roof cannot be allowed to rot. Summer storms bring plenty of wind and rain, and sometimes, even hail. But you need to be prepared for the change in seasons and the effects of freezing rain, sleet, ice, and snow on your roof as fall blows in and changes to winter. 

Poor Installation 

Another common roofing problem is poor installation. You need to have a contractor you can trust, like Jim Amos Contracting, install or replace your roof. That’s because other contractors could attempt to scam you or do a shoddy job just to take your money. Rushing through roofing work is a terrible idea. All standards need to be met, and for this, you will need professional assistance. 


If bugs and insects are one of your phobias, then you don’t want to think about them getting into your home. Any roofing problems can invite them in, though. Birds and other wild animals can also find their way into your roof, which is why you need to have your roof and attic inspected on a regular basis. 

Loose Flashing

The flashing on your roof helps to protect it against the unpredictable weather Mother Nature throws at us. Pipes, chimneys, and skylights all need to be sealed up with properly-installed roof flashing. If this isn’t done correctly, then seams can form and roof tiles can be blown away.
