All too often, roof problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (once-a-year) inspections often can uncover cracked, warped, or missing shingles or tiles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters, downspouts or clogged valleys; and other visible signs of roof problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.
You have two basic options: You can choose a complete replacement of the roof system, involving tearing off your existing roof and installing a new system on the roof deck or rafters, or you can sometimes re-cover the existing roof, involving only the installation of a new roof system. If you’ve already had one re-cover of your original roof system, check with a professional roofing contractor. In many instances, building code requirements allow no more than one roof system re-cover before a complete replacement is necessary.
Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system having been damaged. A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible and could be the result of improper installation, choice of materials, inadequate ventilation, or a roof system that was inappropriate for the home or building.
