Roof Shingle Blow-off Repair in Kansas City, Overland Park

Blow-off Damage

One way that high winds damage roofing materials is by blowing the finished roofing entirely off the roof. Blow-off damage typically occurs in a section of the roof or on an entire side of the roof that was exposed to the highest winds. Roofing felt and roof sheathing can also be blown away by severe winds.

How to Fix It:

If sections of the roof have been blown off by high winds, we will install new roofing and ensure that your home is properly protected against future storms.


Major Structural Damage

Major Structural Damage

Storms and high winds damage roofing indirectly by causing tree limbs and entire trees to fall on the roof. Structural damage from impacts can range from small punctures in the roofing and roof sheathing to the complete collapse of the roof or roof section.

How to Fix It:

Depending on the damage, we will decide if the damage is worth fixing or if a roof replacement will provide better results.


Damaged Shingles

Damaged Shingles

Roof shingles (asphalt and wood) can show signs of damage simply because they’re wearing out. In other cases, damage occurs because of other factors. Missing, broken and torn shingles can be caused by wind, impact or foot traffic. Old shingles often cup, curl and become brittle; these are all signs of roofing that should be replaced. “Bald” shingles that have lost their protective granules detract from the roof’s appearance and will age prematurely if they’re exposed to direct sunlight. During a roof inspection, it’s also important to look for “nail pops” – roofing nails that have been pushed up through roof shingles and can cause roof leaks.

How to Fix It:

Sometimes shingles can be repaired and sometimes the roofing will need to be replaced. Our expert roofers will inspect your roof and choose the best course of action depending on the extent of the damage.


Leaky Roof Repair in Kansas City, Independence, KS & MO

Roof Leaks

Unless a large tree branch has punched a hole in your roof, roof leaks can be difficult to detect. Water can leak past the roofing through a hole made by a popped nail. It can also leak into your house around damaged flashing or because of water backed up behind an ice dam. The point where the leak found its way to your living space may or may not be close to the leak location.

How to Fix It:

It’s smart to call in an experienced roofing professional if you find water leaking into your house from above. H&H Roofing and Restoration will inspect the chimney and vents for cracks in the flashing, check the eaves for damage from ice dams, look for damaged shingles, and check the attic for leaks in the deck.


Missing Roof Flashing

Damaged or Missing Roof Flashing

The main purpose of flashing is to keep water away from building materials or building assemblies that can be damaged by moisture. Flashing can be replaced or reused during re-roofing and roof repair. It can also be omitted or incorrectly installed.

How to Fix It:

A roofing inspection should always include the inspection of roof flashing to identify damaged or missing flashing problems that require correction.


Damaged Gutters

Damaged Gutters and Downspouts

Managing roof runoff can help prevent basement flooding and other moisture damage. That’s why it’s important for gutters and downspouts to function correctly. Gutter and downspout damage can range from small dents and scrapes to sections that become crushed or bent. It’s also possible for gutters to pull loose if fascia boards or rafter ends have been weakened by wood rot.

How to Fix It:

A professional can inspect your gutters and downspouts and clean out any debris that has caused them to clog or replace the gutters if they are damaged.


Damaged Skylight & Roof Leak Repair in Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri

Damaged Skylights

Impact from hail and windblown objects will sometimes crack the glass in roof-mounted skylights.

How to Fix It:

In some cases the damaged glass panel can be replaced, but most often a new skylight unit must be installed.


Damaged Roof Vent Repair in Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri

Roof Ventilation Issues

Sometimes roof vents (like a gable-end vent, for example) allow insects and animals into the attic because they aren’t properly screened. In other cases, there may not be sufficient ventilation, necessitating the installation of additional vents. Ventilation problems can also result when vent openings are blocked.

How to Fix It:

A skilled, full-service roofing contractor will be able to diagnose and fix these problems and either repair a damaged roof vent or install new vents if necessary.


Rotted roof deck repair

Rotted Wood

When wood gets wet and can’t dry out completely, wood rot is likely to occur. Even a small leak can result in rotted roof sheathing and rafters, which will seriously weaken the roof structure. Other areas vulnerable to wood rot include the fascia board and soffit.

How to Fix It:

These problems are often discovered during a re-roof, and can be corrected by patching in new material.


Asphalt Shingle Replacement in Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri

Too Many Layers of Roofing

When a new asphalt shingle roof is installed on an existing house, the old asphalt shingle roof can be removed or left in place. Most building codes say that you can’t install more than two layers of asphalt roofing, but this rule is sometimes ignored. There are two main problems with three layers of roofing. First off, the uppermost roofing shingles are likely to be uneven and inadequately anchored to the roof sheathing. Secondly, the combined weight of the roofing material can exceed the strength of the roof framing.

How to Fix It:

The solution is to remove all three layers of roofing and start fresh, directly on the roof sheathing.

NOTE: Many of the problems described here apply to all kinds of roofing materials, not just wood and asphalt shingles.
