What Does Roof Repair Entail?
When you call a roofing contractor for repair, they will first inspect the roof to determine the extent of the damage. The inspection will include checking for leaks, examining the shingles, and looking for any other signs of damage.
Once the inspection is complete, the roofing contractor will provide you with a repair estimate. The estimate will detail the work that needs to be done and the materials to be used.
Roof repair can involve anything from fixing a few leaks to completely replacing the roof. We can repair minor damage without replacing the entire roof in some cases. However, if the damage is extensive, it might be necessary to replace the roof.
Roof replacement is a big job, and it’s not something that you should try to do on your own. Roofing contractors have the experience and the equipment necessary to safely and effectively replace a roof.
The process usually takes a few days to complete. First, the old roofing material will be removed, and the underlying structure will be inspected for damage. Next, any damaged plywood will be replaced, and new felt paper will be installed.
Once the underlying structure is in good condition, our builders will install new shingles. The type of shingles used will depend on the style of your home and your personal preferences. Metal roofs are also an option for some homes.
Once the new shingles are in place, we will inspect the roof for leaks. Finally, our team will seal the area around the chimney and vents with caulk and flashing.
Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement
In some cases, it might not be clear whether you need a roof repair or replacement. Here are a few factors to consider:
The age of your roof: Roofs typically last for 20-30 years. If your roof is approaching the end of its lifespan, replacement might be the best option.
The extent of the damage: If only a few shingles are damaged, repair might be an option. However, if the damage is more extensive, replacement might be necessary.
The cost: Roof replacement is a significant investment. However, it will ultimately save you money in the long run by prolonging the life of your roof.
If you’re not sure whether you need a roof repair or replacement, it’s always best to call a professional for an inspection and consultation.
