Pro-Line Residential Roof Repair
Keeping Your Family Safe Is At The Top Of Our Priority List
Occasionally, a roof may drape over a garage, but in most cases your roof is over your attic or directly over your living space. The smallest leak can become a huge disaster if roof-runoff ends up on your valuables. Pro-Line is here to help you with all your roof repair and maintenance needs on your residential roofs.
Seasonal Weather Conditions
In Illinois, we worry through each storm. Wondering if any damage is happening to our roofs. It is stressful, especially if you have already been through a leak or roof-damage caused by weather. The torrential rain, huge snow storms, and sweltering summers cause a tremendous amount wear-and-tear on roofs. Because of this, any professional or Chicagoland homeowner will recommend that you inspect your roof yearly to prevent irreparable damage ensure your roof is ready for the next season.
Ceiling or attic insulation is an important key factor in keeping your roof safe from the inside. When Winter weather strikes, you will want the snow to melt and drain properly off your roof. If it doesn’t, ice dams will form causing extreme weathering to your roof – all due to poor insulation. Heavy snow warps roofs, while melting snow runs off the roof the wrong way causing large drooping icicles. Not very safe to walk under – and even worse for your roof. If you see any icicles – or ice dams – call Pro-line for a roof inspection.

How Roof Repairs Can Buy You Time and Save You Money
Action Must Be Taken Before Damages Are Done
If you look in your attic, and you can see any pinholes of daylight coming into the interior of your home- this is a key indicator that repair work needs to be done. There are some other warning signs that we look for below.
ROOF REPAIR WARNING SIGNS
Something that seems as simple as a few missing singles can turn into a much larger problem. It is recommended that you schedule a repair as soon as you see a single shingle curl at the edge.
The most common indicator of a roof problem is water stains. Often times, moisture causes visible splotches or “water stains” on interior plaster and paint. Looking around the top floor of your home and inspecting walls and ceiling is an essential first step of an inspection.
Cracked Or Broken Tile, Slates, Or Damaged Concrete Shingles
The average lifespan of concrete roof tiles is about 50 years. However, it is recommended that even the strongest-style roofs get inspected yearly to avoid damage underneath the tile and major damages to the structure of your home.
Problems With Gutters or Flashing Around Chimney
Not having appropriate drainage can terribly damage a roof. Pro-Line will make sure your gutters and flashing around chimneys are all working properly as part of our residential roof inspections.
It’s normal for shingles to lose some granules naturally. But if every time it rains, your downspouts are full of roof “sand” this indicates you’re your shingles are reaching the end of their lifespan.
Black stains on your roof may indicate algae growth between your shingles. Since algae needs a lot of moisture to grow, there is a probably a problem with moisture getting between your shingles.
