Roof Engineers North Carolina

If you discover that you have a sag in the roof of your home or building you are probably wondering what caused it and how it should be fixed. Many times sags in a roof are due to excessive deflection or a break in one or more of the structural roof members caused by some type of overload. In Colorado roofs can become overloaded with snow drifting on lower roofs that intersect upper floor walls. In some instances, roof members can deflect or break when they are temporarily overloaded with stacks of asphalt shingles or tiles during re-roofing. Older roofs may experience noticeable “creep” deflection which is a phenomenon where structural wood elements “relax” over time and experience long term permanent deflection under a sustained load. 

Roofs can also sag when the attic is not adequately vented by roof engineers north carolina. Wood framing can experience significant expansion and contraction under changing temperature and humidity conditions that occur within the attic throughout the year. Wood members that have higher moisture contents typically experience a higher magnitude of long term creep deflection. If the roof is constructed with pre-manufactured trusses the connector plates can become loose over time as the wood containing the embedded plate teeth expands and contracts. If the connector plates pull loose then the connected truss members may pull out of the joints causing the truss to deflect. Loose plates can also result in load transfer to other members of the truss which can lead to cracks, splits or breaks in a truss member. 

Mechanically pressed metal connector plates can carry a surprising amount of force but even very small gaps between the plates and the wood surfaces significantly reduces the holding capacity of the plates.

Roof Inspections Corpus Christi

our engineers performing the roof inspections Corpus Christi for shingled, tiled and flat roofs as a result of high winds, hurricane and storms & roof reinstallations. The shingles and tiles are inspected for damages and type of damages either caused by mechanical means or due to a hurricane, storm, high winds and/or hail. For hail and wind damage, the roof surface is checked for puncture and tears in shingles asphalt mat as well as broken or damaged tiles at roof ridges, rakes and high point. Shingles are checked for bond breakage, nail pops, tear downs and puncture. The evidence is then cross referenced with weather data and other factors and an engineering report is thus prepared and submitted to our clients.

Then the granules can detach from the shingles. EMA check in the gutters and at the end of the downspouts for asphalt granule deposits during the roof inspections Corpus Christi. Inspect the roof for spots that look bare where all the granules have detached and been washed away. Also inspect for missing, torn or warped shingles. When the edges or corners of shingles are rising or curling, they have outlived their usefulness and will need replacing. Also look for indentations or punctures from hail damage. While homeowner’s insurance usually covers damage from hail, if the property has been vacant or a previous homeowner collected insurance money and did not have the roof replaced or repaired, you could be paying either for repairs or a new roof. In some areas placing a new layer of shingles over the old is allowed by code. There is usually a limit as to how many times this can be done such as 3. So if a property needs a new roof and you can simply place a new layer of shingles over the old you save a lot of money. But a roof that needs replacing and has reached the legal number of shingle layers will require a tear off and all old layers of roofing will need to be removed. This can be far more costly than simply adding shingles so knowing how many layers are on the roof and the legal limitations can be valuable. You can commonly determine how many layers are present by examining the edge of the roof.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are commonly steel, copper, aluminum, or galvanized iron. Most metal roofs have a life expectancy of about 50 years. Perforations, pits, rust, or corrosion can help determine the age of the roof. EMA engineers cCheck the seams, corners, and joints for loose, dried out, or peeling caulk or other seam material during roof inspections Corpus Christi.
