“The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” Chicken Little is coming at you.
Typically when your ceiling is peeling, you have water that is coming into your home. And usually it’s from your roof.
Leaks cause drips and staining on your ceiling. Sometimes you’ll see long streaks of staining and that can be a little more difficult to figure out.
If it’s not a roof leak, it could due to be poor ventilation. Accumulated moisture is just sitting on your sheetrock. Because poor ventilation is the number one killer of roofs in the country, you’ll want to give us a call right away.
When I first started in the industry, ventilation was never even talked about. You just threw a couple can vents on your roof, put some holes in your soffit and were good to go. Now, it’s a whole different ballgame.
Manufacturers have found that a poor vented roof is the number one cause for roof failure. So they write it in big, bold letters in their manuals, “vent this roof properly or you will not have a manufacturer warranty.”
Every year, Roof Life of Oregon attends a continuing education class to learn the new technologies, processes and procedures to better ventilate roofs in Portland. We can actually address and repair it without replacing your roof, which not every company is equipped or experienced enough to do.
If your ceiling is peeling, give Roof Life of Oregon a call. We wills figure out if it’s due to a roof leak or poor ventilation, and find your best solution.
