Free Roof Inspections in Bethesda
Shanco starts with roof inspections. We make it easy to schedule your appointment. Simply give us a call or send us an email and our team will get the process started with a time that works for your schedule.
Our free roof inspections are done in person because we are looking for physical issues with your roofing system. This means that your roof inspector is climbing on your roof and conducting an assessment and looking for any areas of roof damage. This inspection will uncover if you need to repair or replace your roof.
Getting a free inspection is the best way to proactively protect your roof.
Roof Damage in Bethesda
Your roof acts as the premier method of protection for your home. Your roof system is comprised of many different parts that work together to keep water and moisture outside of your living space.
Damage to your roof can come from general wear and tear, indestructible roofs haven’t been invented yet! Damage can also come in the form of storm damage (more on that later). Finding water damage in your home is a surefire sign that something is wrong with your roof. Roof leaks can happen from flashing wear, a roof boot wearing out, and more.
Roof Repairs in Montgomery County
Repairing the roof of Bethesda homes can be different depending on what our inspection team discovers. The four most common types of roof repair we see
Asphalt Roof Shingles
At some point, you may find broken shingles or a stray shingle in your yard. You don’t want to let these slide as they could be indicative of a larger problem. What you should do is contact Shanco for an inspection. From there, our team will determine the best course of action for your roof.
Soffit and Fascia
Soffit and fascia serve different purposes but are often lumped together because they are adjacent. Your soffit is found under the eaves of your home. The soffit protects your eaves from getting wet and animals or pests from entering your attic. Additionally, soffits often contain the entry for a passive ventilation system that pulls cool air into your attic.
Your soffits can be susceptible to moisture damage and rot. Furthermore, small animals, like squirrels, have been known to chew on soffits. They sometimes chew on wood soffits to help grind down their teeth.
Your fascia attaches to the soffit vertically, acts as the backing for the gutter system to attach to, and acts as the starting point for shingle installation.
Gutters that are clogged create problems for the fascia board. If gutters overflow out the back between the gutters and fascia, this creates an environment for moisture damage or rot. If fascia boards start to rot, it’s likely that gutters will start to sag and may create other problems around the home.
Much like soffits, small animals and insects can chew or bore holes in wood fascia. We created a guide to everything you need to know about soffit and fascia to fill in homeowners about this part of their roof. There are soffit and fascia materials that are rot, insect and fire resistant in case you’ve had problems with small animals and pests.
Flashing Repair and Replacement
Flashing protects areas that are susceptible to leaks. The settling of a house can cause regions of flashing to pull away. Not to mention the everyday wear and tear, heat and freezing cycles can cause caulking to deteriorate which leaves an opening for moisture to penetrate.
Additionally, these areas can be on the receiving end of damage due to extreme weather conditions.
The Roof Vent Boot Shields Your Home from Moisture
The roof vent boot is a way to waterproof a pipe penetration of your roof. It is wrapped around the exhaust pipe and is typically made from rubber. The boot expands and contracts with the hot and cold weather.
Over the course of time, the expansion and contraction may wear out the boot or any caulking. This will allow moisture into your home and will create a spot on your ceiling.
Homeowners may need roof repair in Bethesda for any of these reasons. Remember, your home’s roof endures a wide variety of weather. Having regular inspections will help you be ahead of any small repairs that your home requires.
