What Are the Common Problem Areas on Your Roof?

Maintaining your roof is an important part of home-ownership. This task should be done regularly by a trusted roof inspection company to ensure your roof is properly cared for. Otherwise, you may need costly repairs or even premature roof replacement. In today’s post, we highlight the common problem areas of a roof.


Over time, asphalt shingles can become curled, broken or get torn off completely. During a roofing inspection, your roofer will check for this type of damage and recommend prompt repairs. Ignoring this type of damage can lead to more costly problems down the road.


This is the trim running horizontally under the edge of your roofing system and is usually made of wooden boards or sheet metal. It primarily acts as a protective layer between your roof edges and the elements, while also protecting your home’s interior from weather damage. It can have problems with moisture, which may lead to rot or further damage on the inner roofing structure. Make sure to do a proper roof inspection to check the affected area and have it replaced when needed. 

Gutters and Downspouts

Your gutter system directs rainwater away from your home’s foundation. Your gutters and downspouts are vulnerable to clogs from leaves, twigs and other debris that land in them. That’s why it’s important to have your gutters cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.
