Roof Repair Service – Friendly, Clean-Cut Professionals
Depending on the age and condition of your roof, having it repaired instead of replaced can be a much more cost-effective option. The life of your roof can be extended enough to make investing in a repair worth every penny. If you have noticed any damage to your roof, it has been a while since your roof was inspected, or you are buying a home, we can help you determine what work needs to be done to ensure your home is protected.
There are certain things to watch out for that tend to indicate the need for our roof repair service. If you notice any cracked or curled shingles, discoloration, or moisture, you should call us right away. Warped shingles can trap moisture and result in water damage to your home. This also puts you at the risk for mold growth, a big hazard to your health. In many instances, looking for damage around the chimney or vents is a good place to start.
If there are areas of your roof that are visibly sagging, this points to possible structural damage and water damage. The sooner these areas are addressed the better. We can repair these areas before more damage is allowed to continue.
Another issue that you may not associate with your roof is an increase in your energy bills. If you notice you are paying more than normal, but you haven’t been doing anything different in your home, your roof may be damaged. This allows the outside climate to seep in and cause your HVAC to work overtime in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, resulting in higher energy bills. A quick and easy improvement that we can add on residential properties is attic ventilation systems. Attics that allow too much, or too little, airflow can cost you hundreds on your energy bill. Allowing more airflow into your attic can also help extend the lifeline of your roof.
How Do We Determine and Assess Roof Repairs? We have an organized, three step process that allows us to assess damage and create a plan to repair it fast.
- Step One : We’ll come to your home or commercial property, bringing our digital cameras. We will spend around 30-60 minutes inspecting your roof, taking pictures of our findings or any significant damage. This helps us determine the necessary steps later on, as we have all the damage laid out in front of us.
- Step Two: We’ll crunch the numbers with you. Our experts will go over exactly how much the roof repairs would cost versus an entirely new roof. They will also provide their expertise on which would be the best option for short, medium, and long term scenarios.
- Step Three : You decide which option best suits you. We want to ensure that you make the final decision and then we can start going over all the logistical information of doing the roof repairs or replacement.
Roof Repair Service Benefits
No matter what roofing material you choose, you will always need some sort of general maintenance as it ages. This will most likely come from storms and debris. Our repair service allows you to take advantage of fixing small areas of your roof quickly, before more damage can spread. This will undoubtedly save you money down the road and prevent you from having to pay for a full roof replacement.
It is also a known fact that a quality roof adds a lot of value to your home. If you plan on selling your home in the near future, having the roof inspected and repaired is worth the cost. This can keep potential buyers from walking and choosing another home because they will not want to deal with fixing or replacing such a major thing. This will also prevent a buyer from offering less money than your home is worth because they will not be able to use the condition of the roof as a bargaining chip.
There is no question that a roof can increase the curb appeal of any home. The roof is a major element and its condition cannot be hidden. If your roof is not in good shape, it will be noticeable to the naked eye. We can repair specific areas on your roof to blend in with the existing color and material, giving it the uniform look you want.
Maintaining your roof and investing in repair services also provides a longer lifespan for your roof. Keeping up with repairs also ensures that the warranties for the materials used are still valid. It is important to mention here that any repairs should always be done by one of our certified contractors. We not only ensure our work, but make sure you are covered by your warranty. Should someone else install your materials incorrectly, your warranty may be void when repairs are needed, leaving you with the bill.
When you need your roof serviced or repaired, we take the time to go over all of your options. We are detailed, honest, and work quickly to keep the roof of your home in the best shape possible. If you have noticed any damage, or simply want an assessment, give us a call at Whitaker Roofing. We also service commercial properties and offer affordable roofing materials for large scale roofing projects.
