Everything You Need to Know About Roof Repair

Our homes are our havens, and we value them for protecting our families and loved ones. No part of the home does this better than the roof. When a roof is damaged, it will not only let in the elements – it will let out warmth and energy that should be conserved within the home.

If you want your roof to last as long as possible, it’s critical that you inspect and maintain it on a regular basis. If you’re considering roof repair or replacement, you’re thinking about a significant investment. Even the most minor repairs can be expensive, especially in emergency situations. You must also consider how much of an expense fixing it would boost the value of your home when compared to its present age and how many layers are on it.

When you have a qualified roofer look at the condition of your roof, some of the things they will likely look for are:

• Stains or discoloration on ceilings
Buckling shingles
• Old shingles
• Damaged flashing
Water leaks in the attic or around exterior features like chimneys

These types of damages can come from years of use and the elements wearing down the quality of your roof or causing leaks in weakened spots. If your roof is covered with shingles, you can expect that it will last approximately 10-25 years.

We offer a free inspection in order to give you a better idea of the costs that will be involved in repairing your roof.
Even if you’re not sure if your roof needs repairing, an inspection is a great way to find out the age of your roof and whether or not there are any leaks that are happening (or may happen in the immediate future).

What to expect during a roof inspection
During a regular roof inspection, you can expect the professional roofer to monitor the appearance of your roof from multiple angles. The inspection will include taking note of the type of roofing material used, how many layers of it are already there, and how stable the roof is underneath the roofing material. The roofing inspector will also likely take photographs of any physical damage, such as broken shingles or surfacing loss on the shingles. They might also check the condition of your roof from the attic space since leaks are generally first seen there. This usually happens by using a flashlight to see if there are any stains and streaks, or even beams of light coming through from the roof that can be seen through the attic of the house.
