Roof Damage and Repair
If we discover any damage to the sub roof or to the structure of the home such as rotted face boards, rotted rafters, rafter tails or mold etc. we will be sure to make you aware of this damage. We do not conceal or cover over damage that should be addressed just so we can slap on a roof as quickly as possible so we can move onto the next job. We will extend to you the same professionalism that we would appreciate extended to us if the work was being done to our own homes. Any additional work that may be needed can be handled by our crew which means no hold-ups or delays waiting on bids from subcontractors to perform the work. Additional work is performed on a time & materials basis.
We Protect Your Property
One of the biggest concerns of most homeowners when having an old roof removed is all the nails & little pieces of shingles that can find there way into the grass & shrubbery. This can happen when the old roofing debris is thrown or shoveled off the roof onto awaiting tarps, or a trailer below.
To help keep roofing debris out of your lawn & shrubbery we use what's called a 'roofing buggy'. This is a mobile collection container made just for collecting roofing debris. The buggy raises a collection container to the edge of the roof which allows us to place the debris directly into the container. This greatly reduces the chances of debris finding its way into your lawn and shrubbery.
If you need shingles replaced due to high winds give us a call. It's much less expensive to have a few shingles replaced immediately than waiting until the plywood or rafters need repaired or replaced. Another major expense that can arise due to water damage is replacing materials that have become infested with mold.
How To Tell If Your Roof Is In Need Of Repair Or Replacement.
Some of the most common warning signs that your roof is in need of attention are: Pieces of shingles laying in the yard, cracked shingles, curled shingles, you keep losing a shingle or two every time there are high winds, and pieces of shingles that are missing. If you have visible water damage on the ceiling in the home this means the roof has been leaking for a while and you probably have damage to the sub-roof (roof plywood).
Why You Should Not Put-off Having Your Roof Repaired or Replaced
A new roof now, or a repair, can save you thousands of additional dollars down the road when the roof if finally replaced. A roof can leak for years without showing any signs from the inside of the home. Normally once the signs are noticed from inside the home considerable damage has occurred to the structure of the roof. A leaking roof will cause the sheathing (plywood) and rafters to rot which all must be replaced to install the new roofing shingles. And most times when the damage is this severe, all the moisture will have created mold on parts of the structure that are still still structurally sound as well as the attic insulation and the backside of the ceiling drywall. For health reasons mold damage will need to be removed by a mold removal specialist.
