What sets Roofing Repairs apart from Roofing Replacements?
A Roof Repair address fixing minor issues with your roof, such as replacing one section of plywood, fixing a few broken shingles and even addressing gutter problems. The cost for repairs are significantly lower than a total Roof Replacement, which involves requesting a city permit, completely tearing off all the shingles and replacing them with new shingles.
Some times our roof technician will find that your roof only has a few issues that need to be addressed. Unlike some storm chasers, we immediately suggest that you pay for a completely new installation just because one area of your roof is experiencing more wear and tear than the other parts of your roof.
What are the most common types of roofing repairs?
There can literally be a hundred different types of repairs needed for all types of roofs. It depends on a few factors:
Location of your home
Some areas in Colorado experience different types of weather conditions, and depending on where you're located, the area plays a big role.
For example, if you live farther out east, your roof can have issues due to high winds and hail. If you live closer in the mountains and forest area, you may experience issues related to more snow fall, or even critters such as squirrels and birds who can cause wildlife damage. If there are tree branches next to your house, the wind can force these branches to constantly impact your roof, which can cause issues over time.
Age of your home's roof
If your roof shingles are past their warranty stage which are typically 30-50 years, your roof will more than likely have signs of wear and tear that need to be addressed.
If your home and your roof is newer and you're experiencing issues, yet the roof is still under warranty, and there hasn't been any significant weather changes, more than likely there's an issue with the craftsmanship. This means whoever installed your roof previously missed some areas or didn't install them correctly.
Before hiring a new roofing company, recommend that you contact the company who originally worked on your roof to see if you can get the repairs under warranty.
Roof issues you may experience could also be from lack of yearly maintenance. Everyone should have their roof inspected for maintenance and cleaning once per year. If not, small issues that could've been prevented early-on end up falling through the cracks and growing into bigger problems later.
Depending on the different factors involved, there are a few common types of issues that will need repair work:
1. Damaged and Rotting Fascia board
Fascia board is located on the exterior of your roof and helps protect the underlying materials from being exposed to the elements. Because it's your roofs first line of defense from rain and snow, it's also usually the first to see decay.
2. Damaged Shingles
Shingles can be damaged for several reasons: high winds, hail, bad quality shingles or even bad installation. A damaged shingle can cause big problems later on if not addressed quickly. The good news is that most damaged shingles can be easily replaced if no serious damage has occurred underneath yet.
2. Damaged Sheathing
Damaged sheathing can happen when ice and water build up over time underneath a damaged shingle, causing the wood to rot and disintegrate.
Often if the damage has only occurred in one section, we can replace the one section of sheathing and re-shingle it vs. replacing the entire roof.
