Roof concerns in Knoxville & Maryville go beyond the roofing material
When we evaluate the condition of your roof, our primary concern will be the roofing shingles or other finished roofing material. However, before deciding whether roof repair
or new roof installation is right for you, there are some other areas of the roof that should also be inspected.
Make sure that your Greater Knoxville roofer also inspects the following elements:
- Gutters and downspouts. Basements can flood and exterior details can be damaged if gutters and downspouts don’t move water off the roof and away from the foundation. Prevent this problem by making sure your gutters are free of clogs, your downspouts are connected securely, and any long gutter runs are pitched properly to minimize overflows.
- Roof flashing. We will always check the flashing around chimneys, vent stacks and skylights, as well as step and valley flashing.
- Skylights. During a roof inspection, it’s also smart to inspect the glazing seals between the skylight glass and the aluminum glazing bars. Leaks in these areas can often be repaired with special sealant.
- Roof ventilation. Soffit vents and ridge vents rarely require maintenance or repair, but gable vents can give insects and rodents access to your attic if they are not properly screened. These vents may need to be inspected from inside your attic as well as from the house exterior.
A new roof gives your Tennessee home a new look
The functional condition of your roof is obviously your first priority. There are various reasons for a new roof, but many homeowners elect to have new roofing installed before the old roofing wears out, simply because a new roof can really upgrade a home's appearance. As experienced, professional Tennessee roofing contractors
, we can help you decide if roof replacement or installation makes sense for your needs and budget.
If you are considering a roof replacement, there are some exciting new roofing materials available – like composite shingles that look like old-fashioned roofing slates but are made from recycled rubber. Modern asphalt-fiberglass shingles have never looked better – especially the architectural grades that show off extra depth and texture.
Start by identifying your roofing needs in Knoxville
Over time, all roofs wear out and will eventually need to be replaced. If you wait too long to repair or replace the roof, you can end up with leaks and expensive damage. On the other hand, replacing the roof too soon is a waste of money. It's important to be aware of the common roofing problems
and which ones should be dealt with right away.

Knoxville Roof Repair & Maintenance

When an emergency happens in Greater Knoxville, we're here to help
Even excellent maintenance work can't prevent roof damage that occurs because of severe weather and freak accidents. Emergency roof repairs are often necessary when a building is exposed to high winds and impacts from falling trees.
Of course, some emergency roof repairs, including roof leak repair
, can be avoided by preventative work such as roof snow removal to prevent ice damming and roof collapse due to snow loading. When emergency roof repairs are necessary, call Exterior Home Solutions, LLC for a fast, effective solution.
Benefits of regular roof maintenance in Maryville & Morristown
The type of roofing material creates different challenges for roof repair work. For example, asphalt shingles, wood shingles, concrete tiles, and clay tiles often have damage to individual shingles or tiles, meaning those pieces need replacement. Metal roofing generally comes in much larger panels, so those are only replaced when spot repairs aren't effective. Finally, flat roof repair is an entirely different process due to the rolled material and liquid waterproofing compounds.
No matter what type of roof you have, regular maintenance is very beneficial. There are several key reasons to perform consistent maintenance:
- Prevent leaks, drafts, and other exterior problems
- Stay aware of potential issues and fix them before they become major
- Prevent expensive repairs in the future
- Maintain appearance
By performing regular maintenance, you can keep your roof in good condition and prolong its lifespan, saving you the hassle and expense of full roof replacement.
Shingle lifting is a typical roof problem that should be repaired to prevent roof leaks and water damage.

Things to remember in a roofing emergency
In the case of a roofing emergency, make sure you remember these three points
- Don't go up on the roof yourself: A damaged roof is a dangerous environment, and you should let a professional be the first to check it out
- Cover the interior: Using plastic sheeting will protect the interior of your home and help prevent leaks
- Inspect the roof visually: From the ground, take a visual inspection of your roof to note debris and possible damage

One way that high winds damage roofing materials is by blowing the finished roofing entirely off the roof. Blow-off damage typically occurs in a section of the roof or on an entire side of the roof that was exposed to the highest winds. Roofing felt and roof sheathing can also be blown away by severe winds.
If sections of the roof have been blown off by high winds, we will install new roofing and ensure that your home is properly protected against future storms.
Storms and high winds damage roofing indirectly by causing tree limbs and entire trees to fall on the roof. Structural damage from impacts can range from small punctures in the roofing and roof sheathing to the complete collapse of the roof or roof section.
Depending on the damage, we will decide if the damage is worth fixing or if a roof replacement will provide better results.
Roof shingles (asphalt and wood) can show signs of damage simply because they’re wearing out. In other cases, damage occurs because of other factors. Missing, broken and torn shingles can be caused by wind, impact or foot traffic. Old shingles often cup, curl and become brittle; these are all signs of roofing that should be replaced. “Bald” shingles that have lost their protective granules detract from the roof’s appearance and will age prematurely if they’re exposed to direct sunlight. During a roof inspection, it’s also important to look for “nail pops” – roofing nails that have been pushed up through roof shingles and can cause roof leaks.
Sometimes shingles can be repaired and sometimes the roofing will need to be replaced. Our expert roofers will inspect your roof and choose the best course of action depending on the extent of the damage.
Unless a large tree branch has punched a hole in your roof, roof leaks can be difficult to detect. Water can leak past the roofing through a hole made by a popped nail. It can also leak into your house around damaged flashing or because of water backed up behind an ice dam. The point where the leak found its way to your living space may or may not be close to the leak location.
It’s smart to call in an experienced roofing professional if you find water leaking into your house from above. Exterior Home Solutions, LLC will inspect the chimney and vents for cracks in the flashing, check the eaves for damage from ice dams, look for damaged shingles, and check the attic for leaks in the deck.
Damaged or Missing Roof Flashing
The main purpose of flashing is to keep water away from building materials or building assemblies that can be damaged by moisture. Flashing can be replaced or reused during re-roofing and roof repair
. It can also be omitted or incorrectly installed.
A roofing inspection should always include the inspection of roof flashing to identify damaged or missing flashing problems that require correction.
Damaged Gutters and Downspouts
Managing roof runoff can help prevent basement flooding and other moisture damage. That’s why it’s important for gutters and downspouts to function correctly. Gutter and downspout damage can range from small dents and scrapes to sections that become crushed or bent. It’s also possible for gutters to pull loose if fascia boards or rafter ends have been weakened by wood rot.
A professional can inspect your gutters and downspouts and clean out any debris that has caused them to clog or replace the gutters if they are damaged.
Impact from hail and windblown objects will sometimes crack the glass in roof-mounted skylights.
In some cases the damaged glass panel can be replaced, but most often a new skylight unit must be installed.
Sometimes roof vents (like a gable-end vent, for example) allow insects and animals into the attic because they aren’t properly screened. In other cases, there may not be sufficient ventilation, necessitating the installation of additional vents. Ventilation problems can also result when vent openings are blocked.
A skilled, full-service roofing contractor will be able to diagnose and fix these problems and either repair a damaged roof vent or install new vents if necessary.
When wood gets wet and can’t dry out completely, wood rot is likely to occur. Even a small leak can result in rotted roof sheathing and rafters, which will seriously weaken the roof structure. Other areas vulnerable to wood rot include the fascia board and soffit.
These problems are often discovered during a re-roof, and can be corrected by patching in new material.
Too Many Layers of Roofing
When a new asphalt shingle roof is installed on an existing house, the old asphalt shingle roof can be removed or left in place. Most building codes say that you can’t install more than two layers of asphalt roofing, but this rule is sometimes ignored. There are two main problems with three layers of roofing. First off, the uppermost roofing shingles are likely to be uneven and inadequately anchored to the roof sheathing. Secondly, the combined weight of the roofing material can exceed the strength of the roof framing.
The solution is to remove all three layers of roofing and start fresh, directly on the roof sheathing.
NOTE: Many of the problems described here apply to all kinds of roofing materials, not just wood and asphalt shingles.
