Roofers You Can Trust
Your roof serves as your Sacramento home or business’s first line of defense against all the craziness that Mother Nature can offer up. Since you want to do all you can to protect your home and the people inside it, it is important to ensure that your roof is kept in great shape. Roofs can be a bit of a mystery, however. After all, you can’t actually see most of your roof, so any problems could be out of view. Even if you can see your entire roof, sometimes the problems lurk beneath the surface, making them impossible to detect until you notice a leak or other major warning sign.
This mystery is what makes it challenging when it comes time to find a qualified Sacramento roofer to repair your roof, since you are forced to rely on whatever the roofer tells you is the cause of what’s wrong with your roof and how it needs to be fixed. It’s critical that you find a company that is honest and ethical in all their dealings so that you can have confidence that all repairs will be completed correctly and that you’re getting a great value. Fortunately, when you put your trust in the professionals at Monsters Roofing, integrity and confidence come standard with every project we take on.
An Honest Assessment
To be able to effectively fix a problem, you first have to understand what the problem is. At Monsters Roofing, we take that principle to heart, working to ensure we understand everything that’s going on with your Sacramento roof so we can determine not only the best but also the most economical way to fix it. This often means taking the time to do a thorough assessment of the condition of your entire roof and the plywood sheathing beneath it.
It can be difficult to know if the contractor you choose is giving you the entire picture when regarding your roof needs. After all, a roof is dangerous and difficult to access and you’re stuck on the ground, uncertain of what’s going on and how thorough the roofer is being. That’s why Monsters Roofing takes the time and care that we do to give you the confidence that what we’re telling you is accurate, and to ensure that we note every issue possible toward providing a detailed assessment and accurate cost.
The last thing you want is for someone to do a rushed assessment of your roof and then hastily recommend a total replacement. To be sure, total replacement is the best course of action in some circumstances, especially given the weathering caused by Sacramento’s summer heat. However, for smaller roof sections, a thorough repair job may be just as viable, without involving all the necessary permits related to full replacement. When Monsters Roofing is finished with our assessment, you can be confident that we have identified all of the issues that could be known to us, seen and unseen, and that these issues will be properly addressed.

Understanding the Issues
When you are ready to deal with any issues you’re having with your roof, it is important to understand all your options. First, however, it’s important to understand some of the issues common to Sacramento and all roofs. These issues can arise with varying degrees of severity but all of them will ultimately need to be addressed or further damage can occur that affects not only your roof, but also your home’s interior.
If the material covering your roof has been punctured in some way, whether by a nail popping through from underneath, a hole from a removed satellite dish, or an improperly sealed vent, moisture can begin to work its way in. Over time, this moisture can seep into the plywood sheathing that is underneath your roofing material, leading to varying degrees of decay.
If allowed to continue for a long period of time, the structural integrity of your plywood sheathing will be compromised and could result in partial roof collapse. Water that leaks through over time can lead to mold and mildew inside your ceiling and walls, as well as water damage to other parts of your home. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to get this serious for you to address it. If the sheathing under any part of your Sacramento area roof has been damaged by moisture, it is important to replace this sheathing right away. If the damaged area is small, it can be a simple repair job. If it’s left unattended, the damage can quickly become large and may result in needing complete roof replacement.
Other Sacramento weather-related concerns ca cause roof damage. Heavy rains or clogged gutters can cause water to splash back up onto the sheathing, leading to water damage and decay at the edge. Part of Monsters Roofing assessment and repair process will be to ensure that your gutters are functioning properly and that they are completely free from debris that could cause these issues at your roof line.
Depending on the type of roofing material on your Sacramento home, damage to that material can be a concern. Any type of damage to comp shingles or tiles can end up allowing moisture through the material, leading to the problems just mentioned. Sacramento sees plenty of extreme weather, including winds and hail, that can break down roofing material over time. Other threats to your roof, such as tree branches and wild animals, can cause unexpected damage in a hurry.
If we discover damaged shingles during our visit, our recommendation will be to only replace those particular damaged shingles. We will be able to check the condition of the sheathing once we remove them and alert you to any further damage. Although we do our best to match new material to existing, if you’ve had your roof for a while, the new roofing material may not exactly match your current material. Know that we will do our best to find an option that is the most aesthetically pleasing for your property.
Your Sacramento area home has many mechanical systems that exhaust through your roof and into the atmosphere. In most homes, multiple attic vents are required to prevent your attic both from overheating in the Sacramento summers and from becoming too damp from our winter rains. While these vent protrusions are vital to the function of your home, they also provide points of compromise to the integrity of your roof.
Even if your vents, chimneys, and other roof accessories were properly sealed when installed, these hot Sacramento summers can cause the sealants to break down over time. When that occurs, you risk large amounts of moisture entering in a short amount of time through those roof vent protrusions, resulting in major damage to your home’s interior as well. Monsters Roofing carefully inspects all roof vents to ensure that their weather-stripping is secure and working the way it’s meant to.
