How Often Should I Repair My Roof?

When it comes to answering this question, the obvious answer is whenever you spot a problem. But we know that not everyone has the funds to fix every roof issue that springs up. If you’re short on funds, there are a few things that you can put off for a season or two with some patchwork. With that said, you should never wait until you have water pouring through the ceiling to call in an expert. As soon as you spot any irregularities, call in a professional to find out what can be done and what options they offer that will work within your budget. Here are a few of the options that our roofing company provides for our customers:

Patch Work

Not every roofing issue is a 911 emergency. Just because there are a few curled shingles and nails doesn’t mean you need a new roof right away. Some smaller issues can be patched up and addressed later. These include:

  • A few curled or cracked shingles
  • One or two missing shingles
  • A few loose nails

Immediate Repairs

A damaged roof that needs immediate repairs should be addressed quickly. Otherwise, water could get inside and cause mold growth and wood rot. 

Which issues need immediate attention?

  • Missing, buckling or damaged shingle patches
  • Loose flashings
  • Water damage or mold growth in the attic
  • Ice dam formation
  • Moss growth

Emergency Repairs

Water can cause extensive structural damage over time and compromise the safety of your home. Damage around the protrusions and from falling branches can require an emergency professional repair in some cases. Here are some signs that you need to call in a professional right away:

  • Holes in the roof
  • Drooping roof
  • Roof leaks
  • Impact damage 
  • Chimney damage and spalling bricks
  • Cracks in flashings around the vents, skylights and chimney
