Inadequate or Improper Installation of Primary Roof Components

The primary roof components, whether they are asphalt shingles, tiles, standing seam metal sheets, synthetic shingles or other elements, make up the vast majority of most roofing systems. d-7 Roofing only uses the highest quality materials for repairs or replacement and new construction. We also take the same care in our workmanship for any job, regardless of the size. Here are a few typical symptomatic causes of roof problems requiring repair.

Inadequate Underlayment

All roofing technologies have advantages and disadvantages, as well as typical problems. One of the most common problems with tile roofing in particular is underlayment failure. In some cases, roofing felt is inadequate for the corresponding typical lifetime of the tiles supported by this base roofing layer. Even when tiles on the roof look fine, felt underlayment has deteriorated causing leaks, rendering the entire roofing system ineffective. d-7 Roofing can repair (or replace as needed) failed roofing underlayment with an adequate base layer, complementing the life span of the tiles above it. d-7 Roofing uses appropriate high-quality underlayment for all repairs, replacements and new installations.

Missing or Damaged Roof components (Shingles, Tiles, etc.)

Weather-related factors often cause problems prematurely on roofs compromised by missing or damaged roof components. d-7 Roofing is fully qualified to address the full range of these situations.

Missing or Improperly Sealed Nails, Fasteners

Roofs weakened by missing or improperly sealed nails or fasteners comprise another class of examples of where weather-related events cause problems prematurely. d-7 Roofing is fully qualified to address the full range of these situations, too.

Improper Installation or Misaligned Valleys

Improper valley installation or misaligned ones can be problematic for leaks and related roof-caused damage. This is yet another category we have lots of experience and expertise to handle for you, no matter the size, scope or nature of the roof repair project.

Improper Installation of Drip Edge Metal on Eaves

Improper installation of drip edge metal on eaves, gutters and downspouts can all be an aggravating cause of roof leakage and damage. We’ve got you covered there, too.

Improper Installation of Ridge Caps

Improper installation of ridge caps causes problems from the highest points on your roof. It’s all downhill from there, folks! Preventing (and permanently fixing) leaks all the way down, from top to bottom is our trade, and we do it well.
