Wood rot is caused by water damage, and if it is not repaired, it will eventually result in rotten rafters and a damaged ceiling. The outward sign of rotted wood is usually water damage on the ceiling, but it normally starts with old and damaged shingles. Call Leak Enders at (516)620-4575. We will inspect the damage and see if you need a patch or a new roof.
Fascia boards are some of the most commonly replaced aspects of roof jobs. Usually original to the house, these boards hold up the gutters and can be susceptible to rot due to the amount of water that can get on them from clogged gutters. Whenever we clean gutters, we are always on the lookout for loose gutters due to fascia board rot.
Older roofs commonly have sheathing rot in one form or another. Either from outside weather or inside moisture buildup, the roof's sheathing oftentimes needs replacing in some areas. On new installations, we get the opportunity to inspect all the sheathing, whereas on repairs, it is necessary to remove sections of damage to get a clear picture of the roof's overall condition.
