Even in Los Angeles the Elements Can Destroy Your Roofing

How’s your roof holding out?

Even Los Angeles weather can wreak havoc on your roof. There are numerous signs that you should watch for to know when it is time to replace your roof. J and J Roofing is one of the top Los Angeles roofing companies. We would suggest that you set up an annual inspection for your roof.

Of course, if you see new stains on the ceiling after rains, this is a sure sign that something is leaking. Sometimes this will manifest with peeling paint or bubbling plaster on walls or ceilings. If you have an attic, make sure to check up there for leaks as well. Keep an eye out for shingle debris on your lawn or in the gutters. If you seeing that your shingles are curling or buckling or blistering, call us to come out and check it out.

Remember we do not charge for roofing estimates in the Los Angeles area.

Your roof is always exposed to the harsh elements of Southern California – the heat of the sun, the winds, the rain and the occasional hail we experience.

The strong winds can cause the shingles to lift which can then generate dry rot which will threaten the structural integrity of your roof.  The ultraviolet rays and extreme heat of the sun will eventually age roofing materials – check the south and west surfaces, especially. When the winds really kick up like the Santa Ana’s or just strong winter currents of air, your shingles can lift, forcing the rainwater and even debris underneath the shingles. Once that some of your shingles have come off, this may make it more likely for the remaining shingles to loosen and rip or blow off. Remember that tree branches can cause damage to your shingles. If there are leaves in gutters and on the roof, these can cause rot from the moisture they hold. The leaves can also block drainage causing standing water.

What’s the cost? We do Roof Checks for $155.00 which is an industry leading price and this includes on-the-spot minor repairs, sealing, drain cleaning (flat roofs), etc. Most roofs qualify for this.   Exceptions would be large commercial buildings or extremely steep roofs and the like. If your roof does not qualify for the $155.00 service, we’ll just give you a free estimate on what needs to be done.

So whether you need a roof inspection, a whole new roof or a repair, remember that J and J Roofing is one of the top Los Angeles roofing companies. Visit our website to schedule an appointment or just give us a call.
