Memphis Roofing Companies – Cheap Vs Long Lasting Repairs
The word “cheap” is often a misnomer. Some of the customers feel they can get away with replacing damaged parts of their roof with cheap versions to save on costs. But the frequency of repairs done for the same sections of the roof valley makes it more expensive than using the genuine parts from the manufacturers.
- Sloping Ratio: – The roofing valley can suffer from water damages if the ratio is less than 2:12. That means it is something less than the low sloping roof. In such cases the contractors from Memphis Roofing Companies suggest the customer increases the ratio to minimum of 2:12. Going for 4:12 is also a good option since it can prevent the further damages by allowing the free flow of water.
- Cleat Damages: – The roofing valley cleats often get exposed to the external elements in open valley types. They can develop hardness which turns into brittleness, blisters and often result in buckling of shingles near the valley. This is a serious type of defect which needs immediate attention. The task of Memphis Roofing Companies contractors is to try and repair the cleat. They may apply reinforcements or go for welding, heat treatment or other applicable repairing options. If they find the options won’t work, they can suggest the replacement of entire cleat. The next task is to repair or replace the shingles and the connecting parts with the cleat.
- Membrane Damages: – The bitumen membrane below the flashing is subject to brittleness and cracks due to heat and humidity, foot traffic on the roof and weather elements. The inspectors from Memphis Roofing Companies examine structural damages to the membrane and suggest the suitable remedy for repair or replacement. But the process of replacement might take time since the metal flashing is closely interwoven with the layer of shingles to an extent of four inches which is the minimum. In such cases the technicians will remove the shingles and take out the flashing before repairing or replacing the membrane.
