The roof of your Chandler area home is an important part of what protects you and your family from hazardous outdoor elements. Keeping the roof in excellent shape should be a top priority for any homeowner. While most homeowners have good intentions, they may not be aware of some of the more common roof problems, and how these issues can weaken the roof’s structural integrity. At Zona Restoration, we recommend you watch for these four signs of impending roof trouble. If you spot any of these problems, it’s time to call in a professional right away.

4 Common Roof Problems That May Require Professional Repair

1. Rusted Connections

When the connections and fittings of your roof begin to rust, this can weaken the entire roof infrastructure. If a storm hits with high-force winds or damaging hail, those rusted supports can quickly come loose and cause even more damage. Check your roof often for any indications of rust. 

2. Loose Fittings

Along with various connections, the roof of your Chandler home is full of fittings and bolts that also help to keep the roof structurally sound. Over time, these fittings can become loose, which can threaten the roof’s integrity. Check the roof often for loose fittings, or you can hire a professional to give your roof a thorough evaluation.

3. Rotten Wood

The decking or wood sheathing that is part of the roof’s foundation is not immune from water damage. If you discover that this wood has succumbed to moisture and is beginning to rot, you need to have this taken care of immediately. As part of the roof’s foundation, it can weaken the roofing framework, resulting in costly repairs in the future.

4. Termites 

Termites are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Not only can they destroy the roof, but they can also wreak havoc on any other part of your home that contains wood. If you suspect termite damage, you need to call in a pest control professional as soon as possible.
