Residential & Commercial Roof Repair in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Your roof is designed to protect your home or business from the elements, but that means it is being battered by the sun, wind and rain day in and day out. If your roof is damaged by the elements, count on Hollywood Roofing to restore it to peak condition.
Common Causes of Roof Damage
New Mexico’s variable climate takes its toll on roofs of all kinds. Whether you have a flat roof, shingled, metal or tile, damage is most likely caused by:
- Sun exposure
UV radiation and extreme heat cause thermal cracking in oil-based roof materials like asphalt shingles and waterproof underlayment.
Icy pellets can leave dents that are especially noticeable on metal roofs and exhaust pipes.
Wind lifts up shingles and tiles, leaving the underlayment exposed, and that puts the wood foundation at risk.
Fluctuations between hot and cold temperatures also results in expansion and contraction of materials that can result in cracked mortar and loose panel screws. Improper angles and sloping that fail to divert water off the roof can lead to ice dams, causing more damage. And improper installation of a previous roof system can increase the risks even more.
What You Need to Know about Roof Damage
The high elevations and desert climate of the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas make it difficult to prevent some types of roof damage. When prevention is not possible, regular roof maintenance is the next best thing. Maintenance can give your roof an extra 5 to 10 years in life expectancy and stop leaks before they start.
