Los Gatos Roofing roof repair services are here when you need us. If you are having issues with a leaking or damaged roof, call us at 408.298.9399.
Roof leaks can be caused by many different things. Storm damage, tree damage from falling limbs, damage by people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles, missing or damaged underlayment, and the list goes on and on. Many roof leaks are also caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing, if the actual roofing product is still serviceable. Flashing is used near any roof penetration area such as chimneys, skylights, walls and valley areas where roof angles join together. In addition, the poor installation of roof shingles, which are sometimes nailed incorrectly, may need to be addressed. If roof shingles are missing, they will need to be replaced..
During a roof repair, it is necessary to look for any other roof damage that could lead to additional problems. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be damaged as the building frame continues to be exposed to dampness.
