What a Homeowner Needs to Know About Roofing Repair
Problems that are connected with improper design are not for amateur DIY roof repair enthusiasts. If you repair your roof, however, the problem will recur. Common problems associated with design are support structures which are not strong enough to support the weight of your roof, inadequate pitch, insufficient drains, which allow water to settle on your roof and not enough thought for the expansion and contraction in the roof decking structure. This will lead to the roofing materials separating.
Regardless of the cause which led to roof repairs being necessary, the process is always the same. You first have to remove any damaged shingles. Once done, you will be able to better see how bad the damage really is. The roof support will be covered in felt. If only the shingles are damaged, you can simply replace these over the roofing felt. However, if the damage is so severe that you have damp spots within your home, you will have to take off the felt and repair the structure.
