Residential & Commercial Roof Repair

Roof Repair

There are many things that can cause a roof to need repairing, some of the most common are, leaks, missing shingles or tiles, and rusty metal or flashing.

Leaks – Over time, weather damage can cause roofing materials to become brittle and break, causing leaks. Leaks can also be due to excess moisture from a leaky gutter, or debris trapping water on the roof’s surface.

Missing shingles – Shingles are an important part of a roof, adding a layer of protection as well as enhancing the look. After strong storms or high winds, it is important to inspect your roof for missing shingles.

Rusty Metal – Metal roofs, while very strong and resilient, still occasionally need repairing. The waterproof sealants commonly used on metal roofs can wear down over time allowing rust can form under any standing water.

Flashing – Flashing is used to seal all areas of a roof where joints or interruptions in the main surface occur. Improperly installed flashing can slip out of place and expose seams, causing leaks in the roof.

Identifying Issues needing Roof Repair

  1. Water stains on ceilings or walls is a pretty good sign you have a leaky roof. A roof leak must be addressed immediately! Even if it seems to be minor, or you are planning to install a new roof in the near future, don’t hold off on having a leak repaired. Even a small leak can cause big problems such as mold, rotted framing and sheathing, and damaged insulation of ceilings. While repairing a roof is usually pretty easy, tracking down the source of the leak may not be.
  2. Our first step in repairing your leaks is back-chaining from the stains to identify the source of the problem. Since roof penetrations are the most common source of lesaking we will look for those first by inspecting your roof from the outside and the inside.
  3. Once we identify the source of the leak and determine the type of repair needed we can address the problem. Common type of roof repairs include:

    • Replacing or repairing broken tiles
    • Replacing broken shingles
    • Replacing the deck and materials above the deck
    • Replacing plumbing vent bots
    • Re caulking around dormers

Sometimes a roof is damaged too badly to repair, in which case you must consider re-roofing or roof replacement.
