Between the heat, the sun, and the monsoon season, summers in the Las Vegas area can do quite a number on your roof, and even the smallest amount of damage could lead to leaks and costly repairs. Spot problems early and avoid necessary damage and expenses with a full roof inspection from our team at First Quality Roofing & Insulation.
We recommend scheduling our 14-point Las Vegas roof inspection before fall is in full swing to take care of any damage that may have happened over the summer. Our experts will be looking for common roof problems like:
- Cracked Shingles & Other Sun Damage
The powerful UV rays in Las Vegas can dry out shingles and cause them to warp, curl, or crack. The sun can also overheat the shingles, causing the asphalt to soften and the shingle granules to wash away. This can lead to leaks as the fiberglass matting of the shingles becomes exposed.
- Storm Damage
With powerful summer thunderstorms, high winds, and heavy monsoon rains, storm damage is quite common throughout the summer. Violent storms can rip away shingles and flashing, and heavy rain can seep into areas that may not leak normally.
- Rotten Roof Decks or Rafters
A compromised roof can allow water to soak into the roof deck, the rafters, or the eaves. As mold and fungus take hold in the moist wood, it can rot and fail, making your roof sag and leak even worse.
- Clogged Gutters
Sand, leaves, seed pods, shingle grit, and other debris can wash off your roof during summer storms and collect in the gutters, leading to clogs. As more rainstorms arrive, the water can back up out of the gutters and damage the eaves, siding, or roofing.
- Pest Damage
Raccoons, birds, rodents, and other pests are surprisingly good at discovering vulnerabilities in your roof, breaking into your home through loose flashing, soffit vents, attic vents, damaged siding, and more. As they nest and search for food, they can chew up soft materials like vinyl siding, shingles, and wood, creating leaks, and their droppings can cause damage to roofing materials.
- Poor Attic Ventilation
Heat is the enemy of your roof, and besides the constant threat from the sun, a hot attic can also degrade the shingles and damage the roof. To protect the roof, good airflow is required from the soffit vents in the eaves to the roof or ridge vents. Quality attic insulation also helps by keeping the attic cooler while maintaining proper ventilation.
