5 Common Roof Problems to Watch Out For

By Stacy Mellete

Residential roof repairs are necessary to maintain your home’s integrity. Roofing contractors are trained to inspect roofs and repair them. At Affordable Roofing Systems, we’re a lot about the common roofing issues that we see. Here are five of them. 


Roof leaks, caused by moisture buildup, are among the most common roof repair problems you’ll face. When left unaddressed, leaks can erode your home’s structural integrity. Expert roofing contractors can fix this problem in less than an afternoon. 

Faulty Flashing

Roof flashings are your basic defense against moisture; they protect your home’s vulnerable areas like valleys and ridges. Improper installation may cause your flashing to break and even fall apart, exposing your roof to water. You can fix this by hiring a licensed roofing contractor Clearwater Florida like us for storm damage restoration.

Pooling Water

Water buildup could be a sign that your roof has a problem. Debris buildup or broken shingles can cause water ponding on your roof. When water has accumulated enough, your roof will eventually sag because of the extra weight, which would compromise its structure.


Being exposed to heavy winds and hail can significantly damage your roof. Without proper maintenance, these gaps will grow larger and make your roof less effective in time. The proper wind and hail damage repair procedure is to apply sealants and flashing to the openings for protection. Attentive check-ups after the repair should be done to supervise its effectiveness.


A neglected roof attracts dead branches and debris, even vermin, that can cause problems down the line. Conduct an inspection regularly and be sure to clean the roof or hire someone to do it for you.
