Roof Repairs or Roof Replacement
Roofs can be damaged by heavy winds, rain, hail and falling debris. We have seen this type of weather recently in our area. Roofs that are missing or cracked can be unsightly when seen from the street.
Roof replacement or re-roofing can be the best option in some situations. Greg Lilly Roofing & Restoration can inspect your roof to determine if it needs repair or replacement.
Repair Cracked or Broken Shingles
Cracked asphalt shingles usually happen because of brittleness. This is referred to as thermal splitting. Asphalt shingles tend to crack and expand when temperatures change or the seasons change.
Not only are they ugly, but cracked shingles can also cause a lot of trouble. They can also become brittle. Granules help to reflect sunlight off the roof, and control the roof’s insulation ability. It is best to replace damaged asphalt tabs with newer ones if a roof shows signs of cracking or missing granules.
Replace Missing Shingles
Missing tabs can cause roof damage, even worse than cracks. After a particularly strong storm, your roof may lose shingles. It is possible that the nails supporting the roof’s shingles were not properly placed and lose shingles could have fallen off.
A basic roof repair in Myrtle Beach would suffice if this occurs. It is important to immediately repair any missing shingles because water can seep into your roof sheathing and cause rot.
Inadequate maintenance can lead to a smaller problem that becomes larger. It takes little effort, time and money to do preventative maintenance that homeowners can complete in a weekend. A great way to clean your roof of leaves, moss and algae is power-washing it.

There are various reasons why roofs could leak. The most frequent problems are caused by flashing that is not properly installed or reinforced.

Roof Damage Caused By Falling Debris
Debris can fall onto roofs that are located near trees with large limbs or heavy branches. Tree limbs may break and fall on roofs, especially following severe storms. The roof can be damaged by tree branches or limbs that fall onto it. A section may also fall off the roof.
Roof damage can be caused by large amounts of leaf debris that has been allowed to accumulate and then rot. Mold and algae, which can trap moisture under leaves that have fallen, can cause roof damage. This could lead to dark spots on your home.
