Re-Roofing or Tear Off Roofing Services for Your Home in Bloomingdale
Installing a new roof on your home is mostly caused by natural elements from the weather: wind, rain, sun, and those spring storms. Let us not forget those branches hanging low that rub against the roofing system. Shingles contain granules that come loose, exposing the roofing shingles to additional wear. Even shake roofs become weaker when tree branches rub, making the shakes to become loose and fall off. Be sure to have FTC Oury Group inspect your roofing system as part of your home’s maintenance routine.

Tips of Finding and Repairing a Leaking Roof
Finding Roof Leaks
When you’re trying to track down a leak, begin by looking at the roof uphill from the stains. The initial thing to look for is any roof penetrations. Items that infiltrate the roof are by far the most common source of leaks. In fact, it is rare for leaks to develop in open areas of uninterrupted shingles, even on older roofs. Penetrations can consist of plumbing and roof vents, chimneys, dormers, or anything else that projects through the roof. They can be some feet above the leak or to the right or left of it.
In case you have attic access, the easiest way to track down a leak is to go up there with a flashlight and look for the evidence. There will be mold, black marks, and water stains. But if access is a problem or you have a vaulted ceiling, you will have to go up onto the roof and examine the suspect(s).
Solution for a Small Leakage
Some roof leaks are tough to find. Occasionally the water shows up at a ceiling spot distant from the leak. In case your ceiling has a plastic vapor barrier between the drywall and the attic insulation, push the insulation aside and look for flow stains on the plastic. Often water runs to openings in the vapor barrier, like at ceiling light fixtures.
If you cannot see any telltale flow marks, and because the stain is fairly small, look at the underside of the roof for ‘shiners.’ A shiner is a nail that missed the framing member, in this case, when the carpenter nailed the roof sheathing to the rafters. Moisture that escapes into the cold attic from the rooms below usually condenses on cold nails. Sometimes you can spot this if you climb up into your attic on a cold night. The nails will look white since they’re frosted. When the attic heats up slightly during the day, the frost melts and drips, then the nails frost up at night again, and so on. The solution is to clip the nail with side-cutting pliers.
