Recognized for our expertise in Residential Roofing, Residential Roof Replacement Projects, Insurance Supplementation, Hail Storm and Natural Disaster Relief, GP Construction Group takes a comprehensive approach in reviewing your full property damage, not just your residential roofing replacement project. As a homeowner, you carry property insurance, not "roof insurance". As such, you need a general contractor who can not only assist with your residential roofing replacement project, but also oversee all the other contracted trades on your property.
Inadequate maintenance is the most common cause of roof damage. Regularly inspect the exterior of your roof for loose or missing nails, missing or broken shingles or tiles, holes, rotted areas, cracks in caulking and loose or missing flashing. It is also important to check the ceilings and attic for obvious leaks, cracks, gaps, and signs of water damage.
The extreme heat and hail storms are responsible for most roof deterioration. Summer monsoons also cause damage with heavy rains, hail, high winds, blowing debris and lightning. Forceful winds can raise the edge of the shingles and loosen nails, roofing materials and flashing, allowing rain to enter the deck and cause rotting.
Flashing is the material used to provide a waterproof seal between roof joints and around chimneys, skylights, and vents. Roof flashings are usually galvanized sheet metal, but may also be made of aluminum, copper, plastic, rubber or roofing felt. Many roof leaks are the result of flashings that have developed holes or pulled away from the seams.
Trees growing close to the house can damage the roof. Scraping branches scratch and puncture the roofing material, and fallen leaves block gutters and cause water to back up. The combination of heavy foliage and poor drainage can create damp, shady areas in which moss, algae, and mold can grow. Moss, algae, and mold generally appear as black or green streaks and may rot away wood and roofing material over time.
A sagging roof may be the sign of a structural problem. Any signs of sagging or unevenness in the roof require immediate repair.
