Why Repair A Roof?
In many instances, this question answers itself. Because it needs fixing. Again, the leaky roof (the most common problem) comes to mind, and you don’t need anyone to tell you that needs repair. So, the real question is, why repair a roof that apparently has no problems? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
This can depend on the lifespan of the roof, meaning it is time for replacement of the entire roof, rather than repair.
It takes experience to know what to look for. A few sections down, we get more into this. For now, realise that your roof is constantly subjected to normal wear and tear on a good day, and little problems could be occurring which are invisible to you, especially if judging all this from inside your living space.
Ideally, you are getting routine annual roof inspections, tackling little problems as they arise, and getting the maximum lifespan out of your roof.
Whether you have an emergency situation or a roofing issue that is getting more serious by the day, you need a qualified roofing team that is ready to meet your needs.
Be proactive rather than reactionary.
When you schedule your roof repair appointment, our certified roof technician will arrive on time and perform a comprehensive assessment of your roofing issue.
Roof Leaks and Emergency Repairs
Many different areas on your roof can cause leaks, from flashing and skylights to old shingles. Even a hole in your siding or leaky windows can appear as a roof leak. Address leaks right away to avoid mold and interior water damage. Water in your attic can pose a fire hazard and waste energy as insulation becomes saturated. Your roof and your home can suffer major structural damage if left unchecked.
To spot a roof leak, look for water spots on your ceiling. An older roof may not fare as well. Inspect your attic during a rainstorm to see if the water is getting in. After a storm, check for missing shingles, damaged flashing, or any other compromised roof components.
Repair or Replace Your Roof?
A roof is a big investment. If you’re considering repairing or replacing it, there are many important questions to ask yourself and a qualified roofing contractor to decide which is best for your home. You must consider the age of your current roof, the condition of all roofing components, and whether you plan to sell your house in the near future.
Why replace 100% of your roof when only 10% is the problem? Roof replacement is disruptive, costly, and often completely unnecessary. Roof repair is non-invasive, economical, adds years to the life of your existing roof, and typically saves 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of premature replacement.
Cost of Roofing Repairs
There are many variables to consider when pricing repairs, such as the type of roof, cost of permits, scope of roofing services, and existing water damage, as well as any exterior features like a chimney or skylight.
