Roof Damage. Whether it's one damaged shingle or severe storm damage, it's best to repair your roof right away.
There are several reasons for homeowners to consider hiring a roofing contractor for roof repairs. Perhaps your house has a minor leak that you've been ignoring, or a severe storm passed through and damaged some of your roof shingles.
Though you may have ignored these problems in the past, it's best to act on them now to avoid more permanent, costly, and detrimental issues down the road. Repairing your roof right away can not only prolong the life of your roof, but it will help it remain aesthetically pleasing and enhance the overall value of your home.
The roof is the most important element of your home. It protects your house, your family, and all of your belongings inside the home, including furniture and appliances. It is essential that you keep up with the condition of your roof through proper roof repairs.

In the "before picture", areas of rotted decking were found and replaced before re-roofing.
Once old shingles have been removed, close inspection of the existing decking and supports is critical. As structural components of the roof system, they need to be capable of supporting the roof system plus the weight of stored material. If sheathing or supports are deteriorated to the point that the roof structural system is not substantial enough to support recovering, it must be either repaired or replaced. As you can see, the decking on the roof pictured was repairable, saving both time and money.
Both code and manufacturer's warranties dictate that shingles must be applied to a "nailable" surface. Therefore, applying shingles over a rotted substrate is not only unsafe, it will lessen the life span of your shingles and VOID your manufacturer's warranty.
FYI: Because a solid substrate is required by building code, when properly documented with both photos and communication, we have found that most insurance companies will pay the added cost of sheathing as long as the policy has "code upgrades" included and code is enforced in the area.
The soffit (wood or metal panel on the underside of the roof's overhang) and the fascia (vertical board that runs along the roof line) are both at risk for water damage over time. Animals, like birds, squirrels and raccoons like to nest in the soffit, and soft spots in the wood caused by rot will make it easier for them to gain access.
Hail can also have a significant impact on your roof, leaving behind dents and dark spots on asphalt roofs. Shingles damaged by hail can often times allow water to leak into the home, causing damage to the roof deck, interior walls and ceiling.
We can inspect your roof for wood rot or hail damage and make the proper repairs to restore your roof to its full functionality.
