Residential roofs need regular maintenance and inspections to ensure they are holding up. When you schedule an inspection by a professional roofer, you can catch problems before they become serious. The roofer may find leaks before you even notice them inside your home. Your roofing professional may also see structural instability problems that can be fixed cheaply at an early stage and that would be quite costly later on.
What Roofing Repairs Involve
Each roofing repair job is unique. Sometimes, the roof needs a patch, while other times it will need an extensive re-roofing. Your skilled roofing professionals at A&B Commercial Roofing can do all of that for you. We can detect problems at their earliest stages and provide expert assessments as to what steps you should take next to deal with the problem.
We will give our recommendations, but after that, it’s up to you to decide what to do about it. Remember that the longer you wait to deal with a roofing problem, the more severe and expensive it will become.
Residential roofing repairs encompass a wide variety of problems. Most of what we see are small problems like leaks or holes that need a simple patching. It usually doesn’t take long to effect these repairs, and you can get your roof back in top condition shortly.
Older roofs may have multiple problems, and when we see a roof that is a decade or two old, then we prepare ourselves for some extensive problems that may need to be tackled. There could be some structural integrity issues that need to be dealt with, and the roof may have to be fortified to prevent it from collapsing or deteriorating.
If water has pooled on the roof, then you could be looking at rust, corrosion and mold damage. These are often best fixed by replacing small parts of the roof, and if your roof is made up of small panels or tiles, as most roofs do, then it’s a simple matter of taking off a few parts and replacing them with some new ones.
Sometimes, our clients ask us to protect their roof against future problems after they have to call us to deal with something. In those cases, we may add some supports for the roof or add a layer of metal or foam over the top of the roof to keep it from suffering more damage. We may also use a protective covering that we spray down to keep out water or to prevent corrosion. These are measures that help to protect your roofing investment and ensure that you get a longer life out of your roof.
