5 Types of Roof Damage That Every Hattiesburg Homeowner Should Know 

When rain starts pouring into your living room, you know you have roof damage. Unfortunately, not all problems are as immediately obvious. Here, Jackson Brothers Roofing & Construction, the most experienced roofers in Hattiesburg, highlights some of the most common types of roof damage you need to watch for. 

1. Sun and Heat Damage 

While roofing materials are durable and meant to hold up against the elements, years of exposure to the intense Mississippi sunshine and high temperatures can take a toll. Excessive heat can cause heat bubbles and warped shingles, especially when they have missing granules, which provide UV protection. Watch for granule loss (they’ll often accumulate in gutters and downspouts) and replace any damaged shingles. 

2. Damaged Flashing 

Flashing, the metal pieces in the roof valleys and around chimneys, vents, and edging, keeps water from seeping in through joints. The metal can sustain damage from flying debris and hail or deteriorate and develop rust over time. A roof inspection can reveal damage that requires repairs.

3. Structural Damage 

One of the most concerning types of roof damage stems from structural damage, which puts the entire structure in peril. Over time, exposure to moisture and heat can damage the plywood roof decking, soffits, and fascia boards, resulting in rotting, drooping, and other issues. In addition to reducing structural integrity, this damage can cause sagging and water damage, encourage mold growth, and even put the roof in jeopardy of collapsing. 

4. Storm Damage 

Extreme weather commonly occurs in Hattiesburg, and high winds, hail, and torrential rains can cause storm damage to the roof. High-speed winds and hail can lead to missing or cracked shingles or cause them to curl and create gaps where water can infiltrate. Inspect your roof after every storm to look for missing shingles or other problems that require professional attention. 

5. Leaks

One of a roof’s primary jobs is to protect you from the rain, but damage can allow water in and cause widespread damage to your Hattiesburg home. Water can get under damaged shingles, flow into cracks in the joints, or drip through cracks in the roof decking. Watch for signs of water leaks like stains on the ceiling, mold growth, musty smells in the attic, or dips in the shingles, and schedule repairs to contain the damage.

Brandon gave me an estimate on my roof replacement that was very reasonable compared to others in the area. I gave him the job and my roof was complete in less than a week. I highly recommend Jackson Brothers Roofing & Construction as a very responsive and competent contractor service.

I was so stressed out because I’m a single woman who was to deal with home repairs. Other contractors tried to price gouge me, knowing that I knew very little about repairs…but then I met Drew with JB Construction. He took the time to explain things to me and helped to ease my frustration with insurance company. I recommend JB Construction without reservation and I will always call him first when I have home repair needs.
