The 4 Telltale Signs That Your Roof Needs to Be Repaired

Asphalt is the most popular roofing material in the country due to its affordability, durability and wide range of colors and styles. However, as time goes by and if the proper roofing maintenance procedures aren’t taken, your roofing system will need repairs. Homeowners like yourself will simply need to be on the lookout for the visual cues.

  1. Buckling – Buckled shingles are often characterized by distortions in the material due to the moisture that it’s absorbed. Apart from that, it’s also a sign that your roofing system has poor ventilation, roof deck issues and installation errors that will have to be rectified as soon as possible.

  1. Blisters – Like buckling, blisters are caused by installation errors, namely under-ventilated attics and excessive plastic cement use. While closed blisters won’t affect the roofing system’s performance and aren’t a cause for concern, open blisters leaves the asphalt exposed and vulnerable to water penetration. To prevent this, have a roof repair expert do some work on the roof as soon as possible.

  1. Excessive Granule Loss – Granules in your asphalt roofing system are important components of the material since it protects it from ultraviolet (UV) rays that can cause it to deteriorate earlier than expected. If your roof is facing excessive granule loss, on the other hand, it will expose the shingle’s asphalt layer to the point that it will hinder its ability to shed water. To prevent leaks from occurring in your home and encouraging mold growth, you’ll have to get your roof repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

  1. Cracks – On the other hand, if you or your roofer spot deep cracks throughout the roof’s fiberglass mat, make sure to have it repaired as soon as possible. Otherwise, you’ll be leaving your roof and your home vulnerable to leaks and pest intrusion.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

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.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

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.
