What You Need to Know About Roof Leaks

Broken Shingles

This is one of the easiest roof problems to spot and one of the top causes of roof leaks. When you notice patches of colors on your roof, some of your shingles are most likely missing. Shingle blow-off is usually caused by high winds and heavy rains.

At Rapid Roofing, we assure our clients that we only provide high-end products. Our partnership with GAF allows us to deliver their Timberline® Shingles line, the top-selling shingle brand in North America. Each shingle is warrantied to withstand winds of up to 130 mph through a wind speed coverage that requires special installation of Dura Grip™ Adhesive seals. To ensure all-around protection from water damage, we also recommend investing in our quality gutters.

Walking on Your Roof and DIY Repairs

If you often go up on your roof, it’s highly likely that you might step on a crucial roof element and end up causing more cracks on an already broken seal. When this happens, your first instinct may be to perform a DIY roof repair to immediately address the problem. Unfortunately, by doing so, you may cause more damage to your roof. Instead, turn to a professional like Rapid Roofing for the proper solutions. We have the necessary skills and equipment to create quality results.
