Roof Repair

Leaky roof? When you find yourself in need of roof repair, be sure to hire a professional roofing contractor who is experienced and licensed to perform this critical work. Remember your roof doesn’t just sit on top of your house looking beautiful; it protects everything inside your home too. Here are some tips to help protect your roof and your home before bad weather strikes.

  • Be proactive, don't wait to spot a leak coming through your ceiling. Very small leaks can go undetected for months that can go on to become major problems. Go into your attic during the next heavy rain fall and check for moisture in the rafters.
  • Keep trees and shrubs next to the house trimmed back so that branches don’t scrape against the roof. Scraping can cause major damage to your roof. Every spring and fall, clean out your rain gutters and the valleys in your roof that can become clogged with leaves, sticks or debris. Clogged gutters can inhibit rain water from draining away as it should.
  • The most common places where leaks occur is where your roof joins the sidewall of your home. Other common places for leaks are around skylights, fireplace chimneys and venting pipes.
  • Individual missing or damages shingles should be replaced as soon as the damage occurs. If you notice any loose shingle tabs, these can be treated by applying asphalt roofing cement.

When your home needs roof repair, don't wait until after the winter or heavy storm season ends. Call your roofing contractor as soon as you notice any damage to your roof. Remember that replacing your roof is only a fraction of the potential cost of restoring your home’s interior and replacing your home's furnishings and possessions.
