Common roof damage we fix

Deteriorated shingles

Shingles provide crucial protection for your house. They direct the flow of water off your roof and prevent leaks from getting in, along with energy getting out.

Why it happens

Shingles are constantly exposed to the harsh elements so you won't be. Due to the strong lake effects of Lake Michigan & Lake Winnebago, shingles on Fox Valley buildings see increased rain, snow, and wind. Exceptionally strong weather and extreme temperatures cause shingles to deteriorate faster. Even moss can cause damage to shingles if not located and removed quickly. 

How to prevent it

With regular roof inspections from Infinity Exteriors, we'll ensure this doesn’t cause further problems. If shingles are already damaged, we will quickly replace affected shingles or do a roof tear-off if absolutely necessary.

Ice damming

In the winter, your cozy, heated home warms the roof, melting snow and ice. The water then flows down into drastically colder eaves and gutters, causing it to refreeze, gradually creating ice dams. Eventually, more water will gather behind these ice dams and remain on your shingles, leading to leaks into your roof structure, attic, and house interior.  This is an especially common problem in older Fox Valley homes.

Why it happens

Improper attic insulation is the main factor for shingles heating up in Fox Valley. Your attic space should be as close to the outside air temperature as possible, as to not melt all the snow and ice off your roof in the winter.

How to prevent it

Infinity Exteriors contractors recommend installing AttiCat Blown-In insulation for maximum temperature stability. AttiCat insulation keeps heat in your home not on your roof, preventing ice dams from forming. With proper insulation, your home stays warm and cozy, plus you'll be saving on energy bills throughout the long Fox Valley, Wisconsin winters!  

Leaky flashing

Flashing is any weatherproof material added to joints or seams in the roof to prevent water damage.

Why it happens

If the flashing is not installed correctly, it won't have any luck stopping leaks. Chimneys, window lattices, roof valleys & ridges, and other vulnerable seams and joints of the roof need flashing to keep out water.

How to prevent it

The experts at Infinity will recommend the right material for your roof’s flashings that won't only prevent further leaks but complement the aesthetic of your home.  We provide estimates upfront on new flashing installation and old flashing replacement in Fox Valley so you won't have any surprises with the cost.  

Leaky chimney

A chimney is meant to funnel smoke and gases safely out of your home from your fireplace or boiler, but without proper protection, your chimney could be funneling water into your home as well. 

Why it happens

Older chimneys or poorly constructed ones commonly become compromised. The flue is meant to let gas and smoke out, not stop rain from getting in, leading to water damage in your house. When the mortar in the seams between the chimney and the rest of the roof becomes damaged by water, this is also primed for dangerous leaks. 

How to prevent it

Installing a chimney cap is the first and most efficient way to stop rainwater from entering your chimney. Additional flashings around the base of your chimney will also protect the mortar seams from deterioration, preventing serious water damage to your home. 

Leaky roof valley

A roof valley is where two sections of roof come together, usually at an angle. This can be where a new addition is placed in adjunction with the old roof, or how the house was always designed.

Why it happens

A valley is a natural weak spot on the roof due to easier accumulation of water and common improver shingle alignments and cuts. New additions especially are more likely to experience a leak after settling with a contrasting older roof section. 

How to prevent it

Infinity Exteriors installs shingle coverings over roof valleys to keep rainwater and snowmelt out of your house. Another solution our roofing experts provide is cutting the shingles so they divert water as originally intended. We also ad aluminum gutters that collect the water and dispose of it away from the rest of your home. Hire Infinity Roofing to fix your leak today.

Rotted fascia board

The fascia is the wood board running along the edge of your roof. Fascia is meant to keep moisture out of your home and attic, but an excess of water pouring over your fascia board will cause it to rot.

Why it happens

Improperly installed gutters cause fascia boards to deal with more water than they are built for. A misaligned drip edge will allow water to soak your fascia board and rot it. Clogged gutters also have the potential to allow water to back up underneath the drip edge and get into the fascia.

How to prevent it

Fascia board rot can be prevented or delayed by installing a drip edge, repairing/replacing broken gutters, clearing gutters, or painting/caulking the fascia board. Keeping the fascia board intact will also help protect your soffits from water damage, a much more expensive problem to repair.

Bird & squirrel nesting

In the notoriously cold Wisconsin weather, humans aren't the only ones seeking shelter. Critters will try to find their way into exposed attic spaces and anywhere else dry and warm enough for a suitable nest habitat.

Why it happens

Even the smallest of openings in a deteriorated roof is enough for birds and small rodents to squeeze into. Soffit vents, chimneys, gutters, and window wells can all provide access points for these animals. Gutters in particular provide a convenient place for birds to build their nests, blocking water runoff and potentially causing harmful water damage to your home. 

How to prevent it

You can always reduce the chance of unwanted bird and squirrel guests by reducing their access points. AttiCat Blown-In insulation is an alternative to traditional soffit, which rodents are known to nest in during winter. Installing a covered aluminum gutter will also minimize entry points and detract birds from building nests. 

Roof buckling

Buckling is when the surface of your roof becomes warped, and shingles become bent and uneven.

Why it happens

Your shingles, underlayment, and decking can all be affected by moisture or heat. This may be due to inadequate ventilation or improperly installed roof components. 

How to prevent it

Infinity Exteriors will determine the current cause of the roof buckling and find the best solution to prevent further buckling. We repair roofs the right way so we don’t have to come back and fix them again next year.

What to do if your roof is leaking

If your roof begins to leak, call an emergency roof repair contractor that offers 24/7 repair services. While you wait, there are a few steps you can take to protect your home from further damage.

  • Put out pots or buckets to collect the water: this will help prevent water from damaging your carpet or wood floors. Make sure to empty these containers regularly.
  • Move valuable items out of the way: Once you’ve identified the source of the leak, move valuable items away from harm’s way in case the roof collapses from the weight of the water.
  • Poke holes in any ceiling bulges: If you see a sagging bulge drooping from your ceiling, it’s a sign that water is beginning to pool. You should poke that spot with a pin to let out the water before it spreads across your ceiling.
  • Call a contractor: Infinity’s roof repair contractors will get to your home as soon as possible to assess the damage and provide necessary short and long-term repair solutions.

How to file a roof damage insurance claim:

  1. Review your policy: Before you can file a claim, you’ll need to know whether or not your homeowners' insurance covers roof damage.  
  2. Assess the damage: Our expert roofing contractors will inspect your roof and provide you with an in-depth roof assessment, detailing the scope of the damage.
  3. Get an estimate: We’ll provide you with a roof repair estimate that you can present to your insurance company. It’s often not a good idea to get more than one estimate, as your insurance company might force you to take the lower claim, even if it’s with a less reputable roofing company.
  4. File your claim: It’s important to get a hold of your insurance company sooner than later. The longer you wait, the more weather and dirt can make the damage look like normal wear and tear. You’ll need to present a detailed report of the damage, including pictures.
  5. Contact an insurance adjuster: Before your claim can be approved, an insurance adjuster will need to visit your home and assess the damage for themselves.

Frequently Asked Roof Repair Questions

How do I know if my Wisconsin roof needs repairs?

There are several signs that your roof may need repairs, including missing or damaged shingles, leaks, and water damage. You should also have your roof inspected regularly by a professional to catch any issues before they become major problems.

How long do roof repairs take?

The length of time it takes to complete a roof repair can vary depending on the extent of the damage and the complexity of the repair. Simple repairs may be completed in a day or two, while more extensive repairs could take a week or more.

Is it a good idea to seal a leaking roof?

Sealing a leaking roof can be a temporary solution to stop a leak, but it is not a long-term fix. The underlying issue causing the leak needs to be identified and repaired, otherwise the leak will reoccur.

Can I get an insurance claim for my Wisconsin roof repair?

It depends on the cause of the damage and the terms of your insurance policy. In most cases, damage caused by natural disasters, such as storms, is covered by homeowners insurance. However, damage caused by lack of maintenance or general wear and tear may not be covered.

Should I replace or repair my roof?

The decision to replace or repair your roof depends on the extent of the damage and the age of the roof. If your roof is relatively new and the damage is minor, repairs may be sufficient. However, if the roof is old or the damage is extensive, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire roof.

We would use this company again and highly recommend it to others. Signed proposal on 5/14/08 and roof was installed on 5/29/08. The very professional crew was polite and courteous at all times. They worked from early morning until 6:30 PM. They even nailed down loose shingles on our decorative wishing well in the yard. They used a magnet tool to sweep the driveway for loose or scattered nails on the ground. Mary Jean Sparks was always very responsive and helpful to all our phone calls and helped us to send appropriate papers to the shingle manufacturer for a rebate under warranty.
