If you notice roof damage, it’s critical that you have an expert look at it as soon as possible. Here at Whitaker Roofing, Salt Lake top residential roofing company, we can help determine if it will be more cost-effective to do a re-roofing, roof replacement or roof repairs.
Signs You Need Roof Repair
There are a variety of signs to watch for that might indicate that you may need roof repairs. You should give us a call if you notice missing, curled, or cracked shingles, or if any of your shingles appear discolored or wet. If you start to see general wear around the chimney, skylights, swamp cooler or vents, this could be indicative that your roof is starting to suffer significant damage.
There might also be sagging or uneven areas of your roof, which could also be structural damage, or more commonly, water damage. Though they might look scary, these can often be narrowed to one area, preventing the need for a full roof replacement.
Check around and see if you notice any damage or give us a call. We are more than happy to do an inspection and evaluate any potential roof repairs and damage.
While you can easily see some of these issues with your roof from the ground, others can be harder to notice, especially if your house is two stories tall.
(Note: Never climb onto your roof to inspect it. Climbing onto a roof is dangerous and requires special safety equipment.)
Whitaker Roofing inspectors can use drones to inspect roofs, since local laws usually prohibit home inspectors from climbing on roofs.
Assessment for Roof Repairs
When customers call us for help with their roof, we have a procedure that we follow.
- Step One: We schedule a site visit to your residential home to assess the condition of your roof. We spend 30-60 minutes inspecting your roof, taking pictures of any portions that appear damaged. This helps us determine the necessary roof repair.
- Step Two: Our experts will go over exactly how much the roof repairs would cost versus getting an entirely new roof. We also provide our expertise on which would be the best option for short, medium, and long-term scenarios. Factors to consider are the age of your roof and how long you intend to stay in your home.
- Step Three: You decide which option best suits you. Even though sometimes a more expensive solution makes more sense in the long run, we know you may not be able to spend that much money now and may opt for roof repairs rather than replacement. However, we want you to know that we offer financing options to our customers because we don’t want affordability to affect your decision about making important repairs to your home.
