Roofing Tips

Roofer Horror Stories

We get it; there’s sometimes no better way to prove your value than to fix something yourself.  The problem is when you make a quick and easy fix out of something that required an expert – the repair isn’t permanent and you end up calling out the professionals anyway.

As experienced roofers, we have seen many things good and bad when it comes to roofing repairs. Needless to say, the bad has sometimes been very bad! We end up being an emergency last resort when things don’t go quite as well as planned.

For both interest and some expert insight, we thought we’d share 3 of our top roofing jobs gone wrong that we’ve seen or heard of in our time.

Tree Damage

Believe it or not, those big trees that provide your family with shade in the hot summer months can be dangerous when the branches break. Roofing repairs are necessary when heavy branches end up crashing onto someone’s roof. Whether it is heavily soaked tree branches from the rainy season or hurricane winds, trees don’t always remain as solid as they might seem.

We highly recommend keeping your trees trimmed throughout the year to avoid damage from the harsh weather conditions we experience in South Florida.

Damage From Roof Pressure

Walking on your roof might seem like the right thing to do at the time, but it can cause unnecessary damage. Roofing repairs aren’t limited to bad installation or lack of proper care; they can be due to overbearing pressure that causes roof damage. There’s normally no reason for you to be walking around on your rooftop.  Avoid walking on the roof at all costs. If you’re concerned about potential issues, you should call a professional roofing company to perform a roof inspection.

Leak Repairs Gone Wrong

Leaks are no joke when it comes to roof structures and potential long terms damages. However, simply blocking a leak from the most apparent source with cardboard, a piece of fabric, glue and other substances will do more harm than you might think. Wherever you think the leak is might not actually be the real origin! It is essential that you call someone who is able to find where the leak is coming from without damaging your roofing structure. Blocking a leak simply won’t work, and it might cause excess build-up, mold, or other water damages.
