Roof Leaks From High Winds, Snow & Rain Damage
Damaged shingles, broken roof tiles, and loose or missing shakes expose the underlayment of the roof, facilitating roof leaks and the possibility of interior damage to your home. Immediate repairs are necessary to prevent a leaky roof. Our expert technicians will make the repairs necessary to ensure your roof will protect your home for years to come.
Common Roof Failures in the Tahoe Area
1) Ice Dams — When the bottom edge of a roof freezes, it causes a solid block of ice to form, creating a dam behind it which backs up and freezes as well. These dams can move like a glacier down your roof to tear out shingles, destroy valleys and rip up metal roofing. As water backs up, it may cause leaks inside your home.
2) Snow Load — Snow saturated with water can weigh up to 300 pounds per square foot. This weight on your roof will cause damage to shingles and warping of wood.
5) Extreme temperature fluctuations — Thermal shock (expansion and contraction) happens when roofing materials are exposed to below freezing temperatures at night followed by high heat during the day. This causes shingles to lose their flexibility, which leads to cracking.
