Water Leaking Through Your Roof?

It is never a good feeling knowing that you have roof damage. Whether water is dripping or gushing through your ceiling, roof damage is something that needs to be taken care of immediately, before your home and wallet face the consequences. To save you time, money, and peace of mind, here is your guide to detecting roof damage in Baton Rouge, since it looks different than elsewhere due to our unique climate.

Inspect, Inspect, Inspect

A roof inspection is a good way to spot missing and damaged shingles. Based on the nature of the damage, a simple roof repair may fix the problem. More severe damage might require a roof replacement. Some of the things to look for when inspecting your roof for damage include:

  • Composition shingles – curling, loss of granulation, broken, damaged or missing shingles
  • Soffit and ridge vents – clogged or damaged vents
  • Soffits and fascia – decays and stains
  • Gutters – decay or rust, leaky seams
  • Chimneys – leaning, loose or missing bricks, cracked joints
  • Roofing Cement – crumbling or excess cement
  • Flashing – buckles or tears around roof penetrations
  • Flat Roof – patches, cracks, or tears
  • Wood shingles/shakes – mold, decay, splitting or curling

If you see any of these signs on your roof, it is best to call the professionals at Livingston Roofing for a thorough inspection.

Hail and Rain and Asbestos, OH MY!

Hail is your roof’s worst nightmare. There were more than 5,000 hail storms last year in the United States which proves the importance of inspecting your house. It only takes one storm to cause roof damage. If you suffer damage from a storm, call Livingston Roofing.
