Roofing Repairs In Nashville

All roofing eventually needs to be replaced but, more often than not, what you will need is a roof repair.  However, if a roofing repair is put off too long it could lead to needing total roofing replacement–even on a newer roof.  For this reason and others, it is critical to not only make sure you have regular roof inspections (once to twice a year) but also have the recommended roofing repairs, as suggested by your contractor, done promptly.   Here in Nashville, the weather and humidity mean more frequent small repairs, which is not a bad thing since it will ultimately mean a longer life for your roof.

What Type of Home Roof Repair Are Most Common In Nashville?

Roof repairs due to moisture are common but just as common, in our experience, is needing to correct a mistake from faulty installation.   Be cautious about who you hire. A professional roofing contractor directly affects the life and look of your costly roofing investment. Furthermore, because the weather here in Nashville is so humid, be sure to have repairs done as soon as you can.  Wet weather and leaking water are the main drivers of home roofs needing repairs. Other common roofing repairs range from the very quick and easy to much larger-scale projects and include the issues below.

Roof Leaks: Definitely the most common issue with roofing, this can be caused by broken shingles, missing tiles, or even cracked flashing.  This type of damage is usually fairly easy to fix but could require extensive repairs to the underlying structure if left unremedied.

Pooled Water On Roofs: This type of damage eventually lead to leaks and while it is not uncommon, often is the fault of a contractor who did not properly apply or use flat or low slope roof solutions.

Punctures and Holes In The Roofing: This type of damage usually leads to a roof becoming leaky.  The cause can be pests or an inexperienced contractor walking on the shingles of your roof or flashing.  Either way, this is something to fix in order to prevent rot and mold.

Cracking and Blistering Of Shingles: The quality of your shingles plays a big role in whether or not your shingles crack or blister and how long they take to do so.  However, the weather is also a huge factor. If you live in a very sunny area or one with frequent freezes, shingles will simply blister and crack more often

The great part about regular roof repairs is you catch issues early when most of the roof problems are easy to fix.  This is why routine maintenance is a good way to keep something minor from turning into something expensive. A roof problem will not go away on its own–it will only get bigger.  So for best results, stick to a regular maintenance schedule and have the recommended repairs done before they become a big problem.

 Roof Repairs For Nashville Commercial Properties

Nashville commercial buildings tend to be at more risk for money loss due to roof issues than residential structures.  This is because they often have tenants who will suffer things like loss of business or property from the problems, like leaks, stemming from a damaged roof.  While things like leaks, cracked shingles, and punctures on roofing are a problem for any structure, these problems are more frequent and exaggerated in a commercial setting.

Commercial Roofing Tends to Be Flat or Low Slope

Many commercial buildings, especially apartment buildings and highrises, have a low slope or flat roofing as part of their design.  Meaning standing or pooling water are inherent issues. At United Roof Pros in Nashville, we understand the unique water pooling issues that commercial buildings face and therefore offer strong and reliable low-slope and flat roof solutions as a way to keep commercial roofing water issues at bay.

Commercial Roofing Often Is Not Insulated Properly

Improper insulation from a roof is almost always a problem that arises from a contractor level mistake.  For the most part, it is either from a cut-corner or cost from the contractor or on the part of the former owner.  The good news is, roofing insulation is something that can be added to a roof post-installation. This type of roof repair is a solid and cost-effective idea– not only to make your Nashville building warmer or cooler (depending on the season ) but to save you a good amount of money in utilities too. 

Flat Roof Or Low Slope Roof Repairs

Having a low slope or flat roof just means more maintenance over the life of your roof.  While there are some very powerful solutions to water pooling and preventing rot available today:  single layer membranes, modified bitumen, and built-up roofing, issues with these types of roofs are still common.  These types of roofs often mean pooling water and build up of snow and ice, therefore simply show more wear and tear sooner.  However, issues with low or flat slope roofing don’t necessarily mean you need an entirely new roof. Repairs to flashings, seams, attachment points, and cracks are all possible and should extend the life of your Nashville flat or low slope roof.  But, really with roofs of this design, it boils down seasonal roof inspections being a hard and fast rule.
