The importance of having your home's roof repairs performed properly cannot be overemphasized. It is vital that areas of the roof that require flashing be flashed adequately, for the long-term functionality of the roof. When this is not done, these roof repairs can lead to further roof issues down the road for Laguna Woods homeowners, and the added expense that comes with these roof problems.
Roof flashings are of key importance to long-term roof health. Often, they are not designed correctly and provide inadequate protection to the roof areas which most need it, or they do not function properly because they were installed incorrectly, and will lead to roof problems until they are repaired or replaced. 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, unfortunately, 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 on Laguna Woods roofs.
At S&L Roofing, our thorough roof inspections will prevent many roof problems and ensure the long-term health and functionality of Laguna Woods residential roofing systems. During our comprehensive inspection, we will:

The various types of home roofing systems in Laguna Woods have different maintenance and repair issues which arise, due to their unique characteristics:
Wood roofing systems add a traditional appeal to Laguna Woods homes, but tend to weather from exposure to sun, wind, and rain. They tend to dry unevenly when they become wet, and this leads to shingle and shake curling over time. When wood shingles and shakes curl at the edges, they lose some of their ability to shed water from the roof's surface, compounding moisture problems. In addition, shingle and shake curling causes the paper underlayment to become exposed, subjecting it to damage and consequent leak formation. Replacing these damaged wood shingles and shakes can prolong the life of wood shingle and shake roofs, and alleviate leakage problems.
Composition shingle roof systems tend to be maintenance free in Laguna Woods, but tend to experience ridge cap issues. When the ridge cap fails on these roofing systems, water gains an entry point beneath the roof shingle layer, runs down the slopes of the roof, and leaks through the roof at points of roof penetration like nail holes and areas surrounding skylights, solo tubes, plumbing vents, kitchen exhaust vents, b-vents from water heaters and furnaces, chimneys, and air vents.
At S&L Roofing, we are experts at maintaining and repairing tile roofs for Laguna Woods homeowners. Many times, tile roofs are not installed in the best way possible, with many of the tiles in the field of the roof lacking proper attachment to the roof deck, because they have not been individually nailed down. This common installation method leads to tile slippage over time, which leads to felt underlayment exposure and the potential for roof leaks to develop in these areas. In addition, the tile mortar used in the roof's ridge cap often degrades and cracks as the roof ages, and needs repair or replacement.
Cap sheet and gravel flat roof systems in Laguna Woods come with their own set of roofing problems. Wind, water, and foot traffic can damage these flat roof systems, dislodging the gravel layer and loosening cap sheet seams. Then, water can seep beneath these damaged layers, and cause bubbling in the roof, and when these bubbles pop, roof leaks form.
While Laguna Woods metal roof systems are very long-lasting, they are not without their own set of roofing problems. Wind damage, damage from rust, seepage through panel separations and improperly installed fasteners, and rusted or separated flashings can all cause complications with metal roofing systems, and can significantly shorten the lifespan of these durable roofing systems if they are not corrected in a timely manner.
S&L Roofing provides comprehensive Roof Tune-Ups as a means of providing affordable roof maintenance services for Laguna Woods homeowners. During the course of our thorough Roof Tune-Ups, we carefully evaluate the condition of the roof's shingles, shakes, tiles, and the gravel layer or cap sheet layer on flat roofs. We check for areas where the roof's sheathing and underlayment have been exposed and have suffered damage. We evaluate the roof deck and fascia boards for termite damage and dry rot, and assess the functionality and condition of the roof flashings. We check the condition of the ridge cap for integrity issues, and check roof drainage areas for excessive debris buildup. Then, we recommend our affordable maintenance and repair services as needed to resolve any roof problems that we find.

I just wanted to say thanks for the terrific roofing service S&L Roofing provided to me and my wife Gail. I saw your add in the Yellow Pages, and noticed the words "no job too small." When I called your number, you answered personally and actually gave me your name (rare these days!). I told you about my roof, and you went out to my house to check things out within 45 minutes -- amazing! You called me from my house and offered to text me photos of the cracked tiles on my roof. After I approved the work to be done, you started on the work immediately, did a fantastic job at a very fair price, and finished right on time. It is so great to do business locally and to deal with a true professional. It is obvious that you care about the quality of the work you do, and I truly appreciate that you solved my roofing problem in less than one day! My wife Gail and I will recommend your company to all of our friends and neighbors!!
