roof repair

Mother Nature, along with natural aging and inevitable wear and tear, will take their toll on the roof of your home. Regular roof inspections from a licensed roof inspector can save you money on roof repairs in the long run. Thanks to our thorough inspection process, we'll help you understand what areas of concern may exist in your roof. We'll also provide you with a detailed report, which will be of benefit when dealing with insurance claims.

Our roof inspection report includes:

  • A complete visual inspection of the roof and exterior products
  • A repair estimate, should any risks exist

Roof Repair Warning Signs:

  • Shingles that are curling and buckling
  • Shingle granules in the gutters
  • Cracking and/or loosening of material around chimney and pipes
  • Soft or springy texture in the roof valley signaling rotting wood due to moisture damage
  • Dark streaks on the roofing material

Damage to the roof of your home may not seem as straightforward as a missing shingle or dried out caulking. Our professional team of roofers goes beneath the surface of a roof problem, which may derive from poor ventilation in the attic or lack of proper insulation that has caused shingles to deteriorate more quickly.

Common roof problems and their causes:

Leaking Piping

Water stains on walls or the ceiling in the bathroom, in particular, often signal that a pipe flange is leaking and require prompt attention.

Leaking Chimney

If you spot watermarks near the chimney, the flashing surrounding the chimney is overdue for repairs and must be sealed and rendered watertight.

Interior Leaks

Leaks where the roof meets the wall are usually an indication of a problem with the base flashings and will require removal and replacement as well as flashing repair.

Leaky Skylights

Older model skylights may have to be entirely replaced, while a newer model may require necessary repairs only.
