Roof Repair

These are common signs that you have a roof leak:

  • Missing shingles
  • Missing or damaged flashing
  • Cracked or damaged shingles
  • Water spots on the walls or ceiling
  • Water spots or wet roof decking

Roofing damage usually happens due to extreme weather, lack of maintenance, or old age. This can lead to missing or damaged shingles, roof leaks, and clogged gutters. If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your roof, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can inspect your roof and recommend solutions. 

Roof repair costs can vary, depending on the type of damage. Minor roof repairs can fall between $150 and $1500, while larger repairs can be between $1500 and $7000. 

We strongly discourage you from tackling roof repair yourself for a couple of important reasons. If you don’t handle the repair correctly, it will lead to other issues and wind up costing more money for future repairs. Also, working on a roof can be dangerous, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Our roofing technicians are trained on safety protocols and can complete your roof repair needs with no risk of injury to yourself.

Roof Replacement

The lifespan of a roof varies based on the material type, the quality of the installation, and how well it’s maintained. A well-constructed roof can last anywhere from 15-30 years. If the installation is not handled properly and proper maintenance is ignored, the roof may last less than 10 years. If you think you might need a roof replacement soon, schedule an appointment with our team and we can inspect your roof to determine the best course of action.

Your roofing system includes sealant for leak protection, starter strip shingles, and ventilation. It’s always better to replace the entire system during a roof replacement. By replacing the whole roofing system at once, you avoid certain elements of the roof wearing down prematurely. When we conduct your roofing inspection, we can determine a plan for the roof replacement depending on the condition of your current roof. 

Most roof replacements happen during the spring and summer, but we can handle roof replacement anytime you need it. Winter roof replacements can be more difficult due to the potential of inclement weather, but we are trained to work in all weather conditions. 

Leaks, missing or cracked shingles, loose flashings, clogged gutters, and wet ceiling spots all indicate a roof replacement is needed. 

Solar Roofing

Solar roofing is environmentally friendly, lowers utility bills, and can earn you tax credits. Solar roof installation is a great way to move towards energy efficiency in your home and make positive strides for the environment. 

Solar shingles are an innovation by Tesla that displays newer technology. They are constructed to look like asphalt shingles, which allows them to blend in with your roofing material smoothly. On the other hand, solar panels are installed on top of your existing roofing materials. These stand out more than solar shingles but are a more affordable option for solar roofing

Yes, we do! If you notice that your solar panels are damaged or cracked, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’ll come to inspect the solar panels and replace them if needed.

Insurance Claims

Whether insurance will cover roof repair depends on how the damage happened. Generally, insurance will cover damage inflicted by extreme weather. If your roof damage was caused by old age, lack of maintenance, or erosion, insurance will most likely not cover it. It depends on the type of policy you have though, which is why we encourage you to become familiar with your policy coverage.

Yes, we do! We are happy to work with your insurance company to develop a roof repair plan. We frequently work with State Farm, USAA, Farmers, American Family, Travelers, Allstate, Nationwide, and many more.
