We understand that just getting an estimate, a great solution for the roof repair you need can be extremely frustrating, especially if your roof is not even close to needing a full roof replacement. The worst thing you can do if your roof has been leaking, is to do nothing. Doing nothing can result in a simple roof repair costing you more because of other water damages caused by the roof leak.
So whether you’re looking for estimated costs of repairs or need a temporary solution until a professional roofer fixes the problem, RoofCrafters is here for you. To see if we are a great fit to work together, give us a call to schedule an inspection.
Let’s take a look at the answers to some of the most common questions related to roofing system repairs that you might have.
The costs to repair a leaky roof will depend on several factors. These factors include the age of your roofing system, the total area that requires a repair, and the roof material type.. For example, if you have a slate roof, which is one of the most expensive roofing materials, the cost of repairing it can also be one of the more expensive roof repairs.
In contrast, an asphalt roof is common and comparatively wallet-friendly. However, asphalt shingles overall lifespan is much shorter, which means you may want to do a complete roof replacement. In many cases, our clients find it doesn’t make sense to repair an older roof that may only last 2-3 more years. It comes down to what makes the best sense for you at the time of the leak.
Yes, a roof can easily be repaired if only a small portion or only a section is causing the leaks or has been damaged. For example, missing shingles is one of the most common issues that often require roof repair. However, finding matching shingles can sometimes be challenging. In this case you may want to consider the curb appeal or your property's value, what will the repair look like from the road. If you are not going to be happy you may want to have the roof replaced instead of repaired. This is something we run across all the time.
If you want to know if your roof can be repaired give us a call or schedule an inspection now. We would be glad to come out and see if we are a great fit to work together to get the roof repair done for you.
Roof repairs are covered by homeowners insurance if the damage is not caused intentionally. With signs of roof storm damage caused by natural calamities, your insurance provider may also check the roof's life and the costs of repairs. In case the costs are lower than your deductibles, your insurance claim may be rejected. This is why it is always best to have a roofer come out and inspect and explain the options based on the inspection.
Example, if its minor damage and the roof repair cost does not reach your deductible, we will not advise you to file a claim as that will go against you and we do not want that for you.
Roof repairs last a long time if done correctly. By hiring a skilled and experienced roofer. It is also important to mention here, that the repairs may not last long if the roofing system has outlived its lifespan. Therefore, it is important that you hire a roofing expert who can provide solutions depending on the roof type and age and or current condition of the roof.
Repairing or replacing a roof is a decision that should be based on your expectations as we mentioned earlier. The lifespan also matters in this case. For example, asphalt shingles can last up to 15-20 years. So, if your asphalt roofing system needs repairs after the 20-year mark, it is highly recommended to get a complete roof replacement to avoid unnecessary roof leaks from old age roof failure.
Yes and No, unless you're a highly trained roofer, you should not put yours or other peoples lives in danger by attempting a roof repair yourself. It's always best to contact a professional roofer as they will most likely provide a guarantee and discuss all the options you have at the time. No need for anyone to get injured or waste time and money making bad repairs.
