One of the worst repair issues that a Kingsport homeowner may have to deal with is roof leaks. Having a steady flow of water getting into the home is a recipe for disaster. The longer that the water is allowed to leak, the more damage a homeowner will have to deal with. The roofing system on a home will take a lot of abuse from Mother Nature over the years.
Chimney Flashing Problems
Having a fireplace in a home is a great way to provide heat to a room and create a nice ambiance while doing so. The chimney that is attached to the fireplace goes through the roof of the home. In order to seal off the hole that the chimney creates, metal flashing will have to be installed. Eventually, the metal flashing will begin to rust and bend resulting in roofing leaks.
If a home has an asphalt shingle roof, then it is only a matter of time before the shingles start to dry out, crack and break off. A roof repair company will be able to find where the missing shingles are and fix them. Usually, replacing the roof completely is the best course of action when there are multiple shingles missing.
