Wood shake roofs have an unmatched traditional appeal, but are highly susceptible to the weathering effects of the elements. They gradually disintegrate over time as a result of sun, wind, and rain exposure, and when this happens, the paper underlayment is exposed, giving roof leaks the opportunity to develop. The newer wood shakes are treated to be fireproof, and have a Class B fire rating. And while this fire treatment is wonderful in terms of fire resistance, in actuality, it makes these wood shakes weather even faster than their older, non- fireproof counterparts, detracting from the San Clemente roof's potential lifespan.
San Clemente tile roofs are often installed somewhat haphazardly by roofers, and are not fastened properly to the roof deck in many areas. Clay or cement roof tiles which are not nailed securely to the roof deck are subject to tile slippage, which exposes the felt underlying the tile layer. This exposed felt then contributes to the development of roof leaks. In addition, tile mortar can also degrade and crack over time, in which case it needs repair or replacement. And to add to these roof maintenance issues, excessive debris on tile roofs can inhibit roof drainage at key areas, leading to roof leaks and roof damage if left uncorrected.
Composition shingle roofing systems are generally low maintenance. They have great fire resistance properties and are Class A fire rated. They are available in a variety of warrantied lifespans, and are an attractive, reliable San Clemente home roofing system. However, they do have a common problem. Over time, composition shingle roof ridge caps tend to fail, providing a point of entry for water in rainy and foggy weather. This water then seeps down the roof's slopes beneath the shingle layer, and leaks through the roof through roof fastener holes and areas surrounding roof penetrations. Due to this characteristic weakness of composition shingle roofs, it is important that they be inspected by a qualified roofing professional on a regular basis, to avoid the roof issues that can develop with ridge cap failure.
Gravel and Cap Sheet flat roofing systems tend to have drainage problems, and need periodic preventative roof maintenance services to check for roof damage and keep roof leaks from forming because of this damage. Wind, rain and foot traffic can dislodge the gravel layer exposing the hot mop surface, and can damage cap sheet seams, enabling water to seep under the cap sheet and cause bubbling. These bubbles can then break due to foot traffic or rough weather, with disastrous consequences when ponding water becomes an issue during foggy or rainy weather in San Clemente.

A roof's drainage system is key to the roof's performance over time, and a poorly functioning drainage system can lead to significant problems in San Clemente roofs. A good roof drainage system removes water from the roof's surface quickly and efficiently, and prevents water ponding. A roof's drainage system is made up of drain openings and scuppers, gutters, and leaders, which facilitate the water's removal from the roof. And even flat roofs have drainage systems, and are typically slightly sloped to promote roof drainage.
Many roof issues that arise are caused by poor roof drainage. Often roof drainage systems are badly designed, or are installed incorrectly. For example, some roofs have too few drains, or the drains are not located in the correct areas. Also, sometimes there are no overflow scuppers installed at roof parapet walls, and defects like loose or missing drain clamping rings.
The performance of routine, preventative roof maintenance can prevent many San Clemente roof problems from developing. There are many reasons that roof repairs are required, and lack of roof maintenance contributes to the severity of roof problems, because lack of maintenance leads to the failure to diagnose and remediate roofing problems in their early stages, before they have the chance to develop into major issues. The failure to find and correct minor roof deterioration in the earliest stages is probably the greatest cause of premature roof problems. This is particularly true of roofing materials applied on relatively low-sloped roofs.

We had a bad wind storm that blew a tile off and dislodged several others over the New Year's weekend. I located S&L in Yelp and based on Leo's reviews I called him. He sent out a worker that arrived on time and examined the damage. The worker gave the information to Leo and within 10 minutes Leo called back with the quote and set up the appointment for that Sunday. Leo arrived with his worker on time and repaired our roof better than it probably was when it was first installed. Here is what sets Leo apart. We have a playground with a clubhouse made out of wood in our yard. Two of the wood planks had come off the roof and were hanging. Leo without being asked saw those and climbed up and fixed them. I could see that Leo takes pride in his work and he made our two boys happy by fixing their club house. I would use Leo again for our roofing needs.
