Common Roofing Problem Areas

Roof inspections are an important part of home maintenance. Inspections allow you to get ahead of leaks and spare you from costly damage. If you’d like a free estimate, give us a call and we’ll send out one of our drone specialists to assist you. Here are some of the typical problem areas associated with a roof.

Roofing Shingles
Curling or bucking roofing shingles usually insinuate a problem with ventilation. When hot, moist air gets trapped in your attic which can heat the underside of the shingles. This can cause them to curl or buckle, which makes leaking more likely. Also, look for dark spots on the roof that could be caused by missing shingles. Missing shingles leave the underlayment exposed to elements.


Your gutter system is a crucial component of your roofing system and play a critical part in keeping your home dry and damage free. Unfortunately, gutters easily clog with debris. When they get clogged, water can back up onto your roof and seep through the shingles. Water can also pool around the foundation of your home and cause damage. It’s pivotal that you clean your gutters at least twice a year to prevent clogging and related damage.


Flashing is the strip of metal used to seal and protect your roof from water infiltration. It’s usually installed around joints or intersections (I.e. vents, chimneys, valleys). Since these are areas where water often pools on your roof, it’s important to check them for cracks or rust spots.

At Northpoint Roofing Systems we would love to ensure these (and many other issues) are not affecting your roof. Give us a call today to set up your free drone inspection.
