Different types of Orange County residential roofing systems require repairs for different reasons:
Orange County wood shingle roof systems suffer weathering due to the elements. When they become wet due to rainy or foggy weather, they have a tendency to dry unevenly. And this uneven moisture content within the shingle: dry on top, wet throughout the underside of the shingle, leads to shingle curling over time. To compound the problem, curled wood shingles do not shed water properly, further inhibiting roof dryness, and also, they cause the underlying paper layer beneath the shingles to be exposed, leading to the formation of roof leaks.
Orange County homes with composition shingle roof systems are generally low maintenance. They have Class A fire resistance, but do have one area of roof weakness: the ridge cap. Damaged ridge caps on composition shingle roofs provide an entry point for water to enter the roof and travel beneath the shingle layer, leading to the formation of roof leaks.
Over time, wood shake roofing systems in Orange County fall prey to the weathering effects of sun, wind, and rain, disintegrating to the point that the paper underlayment beneath the wood shake layer becomes exposed. The newer wood shake roofs are treated to be Class B fire rated, but this fire retardant treatment causes the shakes to weather even faster than non-treated wood shakes, greatly shortening roof lifespan.
Clay and cement tile roofs in Orange County are often not installed using the best methods possible, which can lead to roof problems such as tile slippage, exposed felt, and consequent roof leaks as they age. Over time, tile mortar tends to crack and corrode, and must be repaired or replaced. In addition, the buildup of debris on tile roofs in roof transition areas can inhibit proper roof drainage and lead to eventual roof damage.
Ponding water is a major problem for gravel and cap sheet flat roof roofing systems in Orange County when the gravel and cap sheet layers become damaged. This standing water will seek exposed nail holes and any other poorly sealed roof penetrations on damaged gravel and cap sheet roofs, leading to roof leaks.
We believe that proper roof maintenance is vital to the longevity of Orange County roofing systems. This is due to the fact that all types of roofs weather over time, depending upon their degree of exposure to the elements, though in general, inorganic roofing materials such as composition shingle and cement tile and shake tend to deteriorate more slowly than organic roofing materials such as wood shingles and shake. In addition, certain air quality conditions can accelerate this deterioration process. For example, air pollutants and salt-laden coastal air can speed up roof deterioration.
Roof flashings also suffer weathering issues, resulting in the development of roof problems in Orange County roofs. In fact, many early problems in newer roofs are due to flashing issues, which can be easily remedied by repairing or replacing the flashings. Most of these problems are the result of faulty flashing design or installation procedures when the roof was installed, and need to be corrected to resolve any related roof problems. The purpose of flashings is to serve as a watertight barrier around roof penetrations and areas of roof transitions, particularly in roof areas which are major areas of roof drainage. And while flashings should be designed to last for as long as the roofing materials used in the field of the roof, this is often not the case. Flashings are a vital part of any roof, and are also one of the most vulnerable roof components. For this reason, it is extremely important that they be maintained properly.

WOW is what I can say about Leo Valdez and the work he did on our roof!! We had a roof leak and Leo came out on a Sunday which was the day after I called! His price was very reasonable, he fixed several little other items which he spotted that would have become problems later on for us, and he was kind and courteous. With El Nino upon us, I was so glad Leo was the person we called as we have not had a problem since.
