One of the most important responsibilities you’ll take on as a homeowner is roofing maintenance. This includes taking care of any minor or major roof repair, which are critical in keeping your home structurally safe and sound. Every roof will require some type of repair over time, no matter the age or the material used to build it. While this will cost you money out of pocket, it’s worth it to avoid structural damage that can drive up the roof repair cost. We can help you learn about why you need to repair your roof earlier than later.
Common Reasons for Needing Your Roof Repaired
- Storm Damage
- Old Age
- High Winds
- Damage from Negligence
- Roofing Debris on Ground
- Roof Leak or Multiple Roof Leaks
Common Roof Materials That Need Repaired
Asphalt roof shingles are among the most common on residential homes. Fortunately, they are long-lasting and incredibly durable for many years. However, damage can occur from inclement weather, old age or a leaking roof. In situations where shingles are missing, have been damaged, are beginning to crumble, or are broken shingles, you’ll need to have a professional roofer help you out in order to prevent a roof leak or a major roof repair problem. In most situations, shingles can easily be replaced to restore the integrity of your asphalt shingle roof once again.
Traditional shake roofs may not be popular today but they can be found on older homes. If you notice your cedar shingles are starting to deteriorate or fall off, then it’s time to contact an experienced roofer. Replacing these shingles requires attention to detail, knowledge of installation, and specialty tools. While a replacement roof may be necessary in the future, a minor roof repair can be done by a trained professional with experience working with shake roofs. You should get regular roof inspections to help keep your shake roof in good condition and prevent a high roof repair cost.
Tile roof repairs can be complicated for individuals who don’t have the right experience. This is why you should never attempt to do the work on your own, even if it seems simple. A roofer can take care of this work for you by removing the tiles that have been damaged. Once this is done, they can repair the base where the new tile will go so it can be installed safely. This can be complex, although the repairs are necessary to keep your home fully protected from the outside elements.
While there are many different types of tiles available, roofers are capable of working with any. By having them come by for an inspection ahead of time, they will be able to determine how many tiles are necessary for the repair. If you don’t have extra, these may need to be special ordered.
Flat Roofing Foam Roofs
A foam flat roof repair is something an experienced roofer can easily do with the right equipment. To do so, their first step will be to inspect the roof to determine where the damage is. Once we know what needs to be repaired, they’ll apply new spray foam to the damaged area. After the foam has expanded and set, the roof will be as good as new, and liquid will not be able to penetrate inside.
This patching process is fairly simple, although it does require specialty equipment and experience with targeting damaged areas on a flat roof. This is why it’s always recommended to have a licensed roofer help you with any foam roof repair.
