When it comes to roofing system, homeowners tend to focus on whole roof replacements. This means they may overlook the details that go into a roof. Our Delaware roofing experts are here to remind you of the other important elements of your roofing system that you should have inspected, maintained, and repaired if needed.

Chimney Caps

Adding a cap to your chimney can increase its lifespan and keep elements like rain and snow from damaging the inside of your chimney. It can also help with downdrafts and keep birds, rodents, and other critters out. However, sometimes the mortar crown of the cap can become cracked or damaged. When this happens, it allows water to seep in and over time, can cause water damage. If you have a crack in your crown that needs repaired, don’t hesitate to call us up and schedule an appointment.


Roof flashing is often installed at the intersections where one part of your roof joins with another in order to add a layer of protection against water. Without flashing, the water could collect in one place and penetrate the seams. If your flashing is missing or damaged, it could mean trouble. We suggest calling our Delaware roofing experts so we can assess the situation and fix it.


Leaks in a roof should never be ignored. If they are and they get worse, it could mean serious damage to your roofing structure, interior, and even the exterior of your home. If you know you have a leak in your roof, don’t wait to fix it. We can get the job done quickly and make sure your system is restored to its full potential.

Shingle Issues

Many different natural elements can affect your roofing shingles including wind, hail, airborne debris, moisture, and more. These things can cause your shingles to crack, warp, curl, mold, lose granules, or even go missing. With compromised shingles, your roof can’t provide the full protection your home needs, so if you have shingle issues, give us a call.


Like many other parts of your home, cleanliness can lead to a longer lifespan and your roof is no different. By properly cleaning it on a regular basis, you can get rid of the algae, moss, and fungus that often forms on your shingles and breaks them down over time. Plus, a roof cleaning leaves your roof looking brand new and restored! For a professional roof cleaning, contact the Delaware roof experts at P.J. Fitzpatrick.
