Roofing Repair is a process where an existing roof needs repairs done to fix leaks or other problems in the roofing system. Roof repairs are done for potential leaking areas due to missing shingles, damaged roof flashing, and/or aged roofing with minor structure damage. We will inspect your roof, determine what your project needs, and give you an estimate based on this information. We can tell you what your options are to bring your roof back into good condition.
Roof replacements involve installing a new roof when a roofing system fails. Roofing system failures can be caused by a number of things, including age, severe weather, past poor workmanship, defective installation or roofing materials. Roof replacements are usually done when there is a solid roof structure with shingles that are near the end of their life expectancy, but not too deteriorated. Some times an option is to put a second new layer of shingles over your existing shingles. This is primarily a way to save money and not necessarily right for every project.
A better roofing system with a stronger warranty can be done with a tear-off, which is almost always worth the added cost. Tear offs are usually done to a roof with structure damage that is underneath the main roofing system: such as decking, beams, rafters, or roof insulation that are weakened and collapsed and for roofs that have two or more layers that can’t handle the weight of an additional roofing system on top of them. For safety and structural reasons we will tear off the entire roof and replace decking and roof insulation as needed, then install the new roof.
We provide new roof construction involving the construction of a variety of roofing systems, including Shingle Roofs, Flat Rubber Roofs & Metal Roofing. We work with proven products represented by quality manufacturers and our standard shingle roof pricing includes GAF Lifetime Architectural shingles. Other shingle types are available by request.
Asphalt shingles are most commonly used for steep sloped or pitched roofs because they are economical and low maintenance. We offer a wide variety of shingle colors, designs, and manufacturers from which to choose and we can help you pick the best suited for your project. Shingle roofs generally offer a 20-50 year warranty; however, like any other roofing system, quality installation will ensure a longer life. Asphalt roofing material is flexible enough to thrive in most conditions. A flat rubber roof is usually done with roofing membranes and synthetic rubber roofing compounds that outperform gravel roofing materials and make roof leak detection much easier. These roofing materials are basically seamless and also fight against UV damage and work well for flat roofs. Metal roofs can last a lifetime, are very low maintenance, and have a wide variety of color choices to compliment your homes look.
We look forward to learning more about your roofing needs.
