4 Reasons Roofs Fail

Your roof is one the most important components of your home because it protects your property from the elements. When a roof begins to fail, it can be costly and time-consuming to repair or replace. Understanding why roofs fail in the first place is crucial to ensure that your new exterior replacement in Medford, OR lasts as long as possible. 

In this article, Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. enumerates the top four causes of roof failure. 

4 Reasons Roofs Fail

1. Poor Installation

When a roof is installed incorrectly, it can lead to leaks, water damage and other structural issues. It’s critical to ensure that your contractor has the experience and expertise necessary to ensure that your new residential roofing system is installed correctly. 

2. Extreme Weather Conditions

High winds, hail and heavy snowfall can damage a roof over time. Taking preventive measures like installing impact-resistant shingles or reinforcing the roof with additional layers of protection can help reduce the risk of damage from severe weather.

3. Lack of Maintenance

Another cause of roof failure is lack of maintenance. Regular inspections and minor repairs can help keep your roof in good condition for years. At least once a year, have your roof inspected by a reputable roof maintenance contractor for signs of damage. These issues include cracked shingles or broken flashing. 

4. Age

As roofs age, they become more susceptible to damage and leaks. This is especially true for older roofs that may have been installed with materials or techniques that are no longer up-to-date. Replacing an aging roof can help prevent further problems down the line.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
