Arwine & Merrell Roofing has been in the roofing business for the past five years. An Arwine & Merrell Roofing Contractor can provide slate, shingle, tile, metal and other types of roofing for homeowners.

Often roof damage may occur to the roof by animals that may make their homes in your attic. This could include squirrels, birds or raccoons. Any carpentry repairs needed for ensuring the Arwine & Merrell roof will be installed correctly is another part of the service provided by Arwine & Merrell Roofing.

Roof repairs are, unfortunately, all too common. Many things can lead to the need for a roof repair, but the most common are leaks, weather wear and tear, and tree limbs. Repairs can also be necessary as a result of poor installation, malfunction, or age.

Leaky Roof

Arwine & Merrell Roofing repair leaks happen to roofs primarily as they age, but can also be caused by poor installation. Leaks can cause damage not only to your roof but also to the interior of your house. They’re most commonly found around openings such as skylights, chimneys, dormers, and roof/wall intersections. Leaks in these places are commonly caused by worn or poorly installed flashing.

Weather Wear and Tear

Roofs also occasionally need repairs for damage caused by the weather. Wind, rain, ice, and hail can all cause damage, with hail being a big concern in Knoxville. Many leaks also will not be detected until the region receives a large amount of rain or a torrential downpour. In Knoxville, it’s common for leaks to go undetected throughout the dry summer, only to be found once the fall rains begin.

Tree Limbs

Trees are usually great for your home–they increase curbside value and help cool your house in the summertime. However, trees can also cause roof damage in the form of consistent rubbing, broken limbs on the roof (causing undesired weight) and broken limbs through the roof.
