Signs You Need a New MD Roofing System

Residential and commercial properties can often change hands frequently, and the integrity of the roof can go unchecked through several changes of ownership. It is essential that Maryland home and business owners have their roofs inspected every 3-5 years by a MD roofing contractor like HomeTech. A regular inspection will keep you, your family, your employees, or your possessions safe from the dangers of water damage, falling debris, and mold. When you own a building of any kind, the occupants need to feel safe being under you roof, and HomeTech has the expertise necessary to give them peace of mind.

When you contact a professional roofing contractor in Columbia MD or any of HomeTech’ service areas, you need to make sure they actually get up onto your roof to perform an inspection. Some local contractors will give you an estimate on roof repairs or replacements without thoroughly inspecting the structure, which leads to missed details. At HomeTech, our staff of professional MD roofing contractors will climb up to your roof to make sure we give you a fair, detailed estimate. Here are just a few of the points we will check for when inspecting your Columbia MD, Laurel MD, or Germantown roofing system:

  • Stains or dripping water on interior walls
  • Cracked or curling shingles
  • Missing shingles
  • Excessive mold or moss growth
  • Staining on the interior structure
  • Penetration of the shingle layer or roof deck
  • Ice dam build-up

These are not necessarily signs that you need to replace your roof, but if left to their own devices these defects will lead to the need for a costly replacement of your MD roofing system. That is why you should have an expert MD roofing contractor inspect your roof semi-frequently, if not just to give you peace of mind knowing that you don’t have these problems.

Have Hail Damage? Get a Quick Response from HomeTech!

Although hailstorms do not occur with great frequency in the Maryland area, when they do strike it can cause serious and widespread damage. Your home is vulnerable to hail damage in many different areas, including roofing, siding, windows, and doors. Hail stones striking a your roof can cause immediate damage in the form of broken, cracked or loosened shingles or tiles. But hail can also cause unseen damage to other parts of your Maryland home that can have long-term consequences.

Even if your roof appears to be undamaged, a hailstorm can result in hidden damage. You need the trained eye of the professionals from HomeTech to conduct an on-site inspection of your roof to determine whether or not the underlayment and supporting structure was damaged. Only a trained Maryland hail damage specialist can uncover hidden problems in every aspect of the exterior of your home. We will inspect your entire home, including climbing on the roof and checking it up close.  After our inspection  we will provide you with a detailed report and work with your insurance company.

When hail hits your roof it can cause a “bruise” which can allow water to seep into your home. It may not lead to an immediate leak, but over time the water will find its way into your Maryland home. It’s difficult to determine whether a roof needs to be repaired of replaced after a hailstorm because the damage is not readily evident.

One thing the hail damage experts at HomeTech will look for on a shingle roof is granules in the gutter. Hail can wear away and weaken shingles, eroding the protective granules and shortening the life of the roof. The exposed asphalt will deteriorate and more granules will come loose. Excessive granules collecting in the gutter means repair or replacement is recommended.

When disaster does strike, and a hailstorm causes damage to your Maryland home, make sure you call a fully licensed contractor. There are unlicensed contractors out there (we in the industry call them “Storm Chasers”) who are not backed by their manufacturers. If you hire a “Storm Chaser” you will pay for any mistakes they make out of your own pocket. So give HomeTech a call, we’ll respond promptly and work quickly to fix any hail damage we find.
