Over time, roofs wear down and can cause problems like leaks. Regular roof inspections are important in maintaining your roof’s integrity. We provide thorough roof inspections to ensure your roof is in good condition. During our inspection, we will evaluate all aspects of your roof and discover any problem areas in need or repair or replacement. We check for missing, broken, or torn shingles, deteriorating shingle granules, rusted or missing flashing, wood rot, unsecured gutters, and more.
Storm and Hail Damage Repair
Following severe storms, your roof may be in need of repairs. Damage from storms can cause leaks, which can lead to even more damage inside your home. Even if there aren’t leaks, hail is known to cause the UV protective granules on your shingles to wash away. Slate and wood roofs can crack from the impact of hail, causing more damage.
Wood Rot Repair
Wood rot is a dangerous thing if left alone. It can spread to other areas of your house and wreak havoc. Water and humidity are the conditions fungal spores need to cause wood rot. It can occur in a basement, crawlspace, exterior window sills, door thresholds, trim, the underside of roof decking, roof framing, fascia, and rake boards. The best way to combat wood rot is by having a sound roof and gutter system to keep water away from your home. We can inspect your home for wood rot, and if found fix the problem in a timely fashion!
Ice Dam Prevention & Damage Repair
Ice dams are formed when water freezes along the eaves and the melted snow water gets trapped behind it and refreezes. The water trapped behind an ice dam can flow under the shingle and cause leaks into your home. The key to keeping ice off your roof is prevention. Sealing air leaks and having adequate attic ventilation is key to keeping the temperature on the underside of your roof the same as outside. A protective ice and water shield can prevent ice from building up along your eaves. This should be installed by an experienced contractor. We offer these services for ice dam removal and prevention and can help you be better prepared for the winter months.
Ridge Vents and Roof Ventilation
A well-ventilated roof can lower heating and cooling costs, provide more comfort for your family, and help your shingles have a longer life. At Couto, we install and repair soffit, gable, and ridge vents to aid in attic ventilation and longer roof life. We can help you choose the right type of vents to fit your home. We can also repair any vents that have been damaged to ensure they are working properly.
