ROOF REPAIRS

- Roof Repairs Done by Experts -

A roof often needs only minor repairs, not to be replaced. Many roofing contractors do not do repairs and will push customers towards a new roof that is not needed. As a homeowner, it can be difficult to determine that. The visual list below can help you in identifying signs of a roof in need of repair. However, to put your mind at ease, simply contact us and we will provide you with a complimentary evaluation to asses the problem and to determine what, if any, repairs are needed.

Leaking

Sometimes leaks are obvious and need to be dealt with immediately. But sometimes leaks are in your attic or walls and go unnoticed, which can cause huge problems for your home. In addition to looking for visible leaks, you’ll want to have your home inspected by a professional roofing contractor who can detect and repair ALL leaks.

Loose, Bending or Curling Shingles

One of the major causes of leaks is shingle problems. You can detect some shingle problems just by looking at your roof – take a few moments to carefully for bending or curling. See if there are any shingles missing completely. Some shingle problems may require a professional roof inspector to detect and repair.

Loose Flashing 

The metal parts that seal the connections around your chimney, vent pipes, or anything sticking out of your roof is called “flashing.” If the flashing is loose, it’s an open invitation for water to seep in and wreak havoc on your home. Give your flashing a quick visual inspection, then have us come out for a professional inspection and repair.

Dark Streaks – Algae & Moss

The metal parts that seal the connections around your chimney, vent pipes, or anything sticking out of your roof is called “flashing.” If the flashing is loose, it’s an open invitation for water to seep in and wreak havoc on your home.

Dark Patches - Rot

Dark patches an your roof may indicate rot underneath. If untreated, this rot can spread and cause major problems throughout your home, and even encourage the growth of mold and mildew in your attic – which poses a serious health threat. A professional roof inspection can detect rot that’s not even visible yet.
We realize that most people are not thinking much about their roof, but it is an integral part of your home which is an investment you value and want to protect. We all want to make smart financial decisions and be responsible with the energy resources we have. Therefore, we will assist you in understanding how your roof can save you money through lower utility bills, federal tax credits and reduced insurance premiums.
Remember: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
