Roof Flashing Repair
While your roofing is able to protect against water infiltration, there are areas of your roof like roof valleys, seams, chimney, edges, pipes, and vents that are more susceptible to leaks. This is because of those areas have joints that are easy for water to enter. To ensure your roof doesn’t get leaks in those areas, it’s important to have proper flashing. Roof flashing is thin strips of material that are installed around those areas to prevent leaks from penetrating your roof and home. The most common flashing materials are plastic, rubber, and metal, with metal being the most popular choice because it is so durable.
While roof flashing is very resilient, it can still have its problems. Over time it can lose its shape, it can become corroded, or it can start to come up. If you have a roof leak and don’t know where the issue lies, call us at (972) 535-8065. We are able to inspect your roof and determine if you need roof flashing repair in Dallas, TX or general roof repair. Our roof flashing repair is able to fix the issue before it becomes a big problem.
Because your roof has a very important job, there are supporting areas that ensure that its job is being done properly. One of those areas includes the soffit. A soffit is the underside of a home, which protects your roof’s eaves. The purpose of a soffit is to make easier for air to flow through an attic, which will make your roofing system cooler, and also protects against excess moisture and mold. It’s a sturdy part of the roof, but it can also be susceptible to issues.
Typically, the soffit is where you will see rot start to appear. This is because where it is located, making it more prone to damages from water and mold. If you’ve noticed a lack of ventilation, gutter leaks, or animals nests in between the eaves of your roofs, there is a good chance that your soffit needs repair service. When you need professional soffit repair in Dallas, TX, you can count on our team of roofers to help. As a part of our roof repair services, we inspect every area of your roof, including your soffit, to ensure it’s in great shape.
When we think about our roof’s soffit, we also think about the facia. Soffit and fascia usually are grouped together and that’s because they are so close to one another and are affected by the same things. Your roof’s fascia is a piece of vinyl or wood that runs the length of your roof’s edge. The purpose of the fascia is to make it easier to mount your roof gutters, as well as cover the front of the soffit. While it does have structural purposes, the fascia is also used for aesthetic purposes.
Because the soffit and fascia are so close to the roof’s gutters, they are more susceptible to water damage if there happens to be an issue with your gutters. The biggest problem that you are going to see with your roof’s fascia is moisture problems, which can lead to mold and rot. If you notice chipping paint from your fascia or it’s looking a little worse for wear, feel free to contact Mullins General Construction for fascia repair in Dallas, TX. You can reach us at (972) 535-8065 to make an appointment to have it inspected. If we find any issues with your fascia, we will provide roof repair service.
