Your Dallas Roof Repair Experts
We have created a checklist below that you can use to help assess whether your roof needs repairs. The following are not the only problems that can occur with roofs, but they do provide indicators that you need the services of a professional roofing contractor.
Common Roof Problems
Look for shingles that are curling or bending, loose, cracked or missing. Over time, weather causes shingles to deteriorate and lose their ability to protect the roof structure underneath. Deterioration is one of the main causes of leaky roofs. Even though, you may not see any of the problems, there is still a chance that the shingles are not fully protecting your roof. In that event, one of our professional roof inspectors are available to examine the shingles and locate the problem for you.
Algae & Moss
Dark streaks on your roof can be an indication that algae and moss have become a problem. If left untreated, the algae and moss can trap water and cause major damage to your roof. If dark streaks are noticed, it is important that a professional roof inspector is contacted as soon as possible. Failure to treat algae and moss can also lead to your main base boards becoming rotted and in some extreme cases, even roof collapse. Does your roof have algae and moss build up?

Gutters & Flashing
Gutters are designed to collect rainwater and divert it to the ground and away from your home. If they appear to be warped, clogged or damaged, this allows water to build up and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to structures of the roof. It is important they are repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Flashing is pieces of metal that are used to seal the areas between your shingles, vent pipes, chimney, and other items that protrude through the roof of your home. If the flashing is not properly sealed or has become loose or bent over time, it will allow water to seep into the home and cause major damage to your homes structure. In many cases, it is difficult to determine whether the flashing is loose without an inspection by one of our professional roof inspectors.
Dark spots on your roof can indicate that there is rot beneath the shingles. Rot spreads if left untreated and can cause damage throughout your home. Rot also encourages mold and mildew to grow that can create a serious health threat to occupants of your home.
