The Most Common Roofing Problems

The Most Common Roofing Problems 

The one thing every home has is a roof. And the one thing they all share is that they experience some normal wear and tear from time to time. From broken gutters to poor installation and blistering to leaks, there is a variety of problems that come along with roof installation. But what issues should you be looking at over others? 

Bilt For Construction has a long history of roof installation and repairment. We pride ourselves on industry-leading services that will not only meet your expectations but exceed them. But in order for you to fix your roof, you have to understand your roof and the problems to be expected. Here are a few common roofing problems everyone experiences. 

Water Leaks 

Have you ever felt a droplet of water fall from above? Odds are, you probably have a leak in your roof. Water leaks are one of the most common and annoying issues that come along with ceilings. These leaks can result in damage to both your walls and roof, leaving behind nasty water stains that are next to impossible to cover up. Water leaks are caused by tiny cracks in the roof’s foundation that gradually grow until they become sizeable holes. These cracks can be mended together by sealing the hole or replacing your home’s shingles. 

Broken Gutters 

Everyone’s least favorite chore is cleaning out their gutters. But what they don’t know is that these gutters are a crucial layer of protection for their home. Broken gutters disrupt the flow of water down the side of ones’ house, thus resulting in siding rot and washed away landscape. Depending on how damaged your gutters are, you either have to replace them altogether or mend them back into one whole piece. 

Poor Installation 

Sadly, this is a very common issue too. Most roofing companies end up rushing the installation process and, in turn, leave behind a poorly placed or partially damaged roof. However, with Bilt For Construction, you’ll never have to worry about receiving a poor installation job because we pride ourselves on supplying the same care and patience with each and every job. No roofing job is too big or too small for Bilt For Construction. 

Pesky Pests 

As much as we hate to admit it, we’ve all had critters and pests take residence in our homes. But sometimes, they make themselves into the foundation of our roof. A number of issues arise whenever animals eat or knawel at your roof. From creating cracks to breaking apart the foundation, there’s nothing good that comes along with critters occupying your roof. 


Like cracks in the foundation, this is when your roof begins to tear apart and form tiny holes on the outside. This is usually a result of poor attic ventilation, which in turn makes your roof and attic too hot to stand, thus making it tear apart. We recommend checking out your attic ventilation from time to time to ensure that your roof won’t blister and tear apart.
