Events that Require Roof Repairs :
When a seal fails between shingles, a piece of flashing has exposed nails, the base flashing on a pipe has been pushed or pulled up and away from the roof, critters have chewed through the flashing over a plumbing exhaust pipe, one area of the roof has a low angle of pitch and water is seeping in, or the flashing along a wall has a small gap, or the previous roofers didn't install the roof or flashing properly, you may have leaks that need attention. Call and schedule a FREE roof inspection to find out what is causing your roof leak, and what we can do.
Many times, a simple roof tune-up is all that is needed to stop a minor leak. A Roof Tune-Up consists of nailing down any loose flashing, applying Roofing Sealant or Roofers' Caulk to exposed nail heads, flashing bases, cracked or broken shingles, chimney flashing and pipe jack boots, as well as basic nail pop repairs, and a complete inspection.
General roof maintenance, such as a "Roof Tune-Up" can extend the life of an aging roof. While it is considered a best-practice to have an annual roof inspection, roof maintenance of this type is only required when issues are identified. Maintenance of this type is not guaranteed to prevent all future leaks, but may help in delaying roof replacement for an aging roof.
Sometimes a small roof leak is caused by a small gap on pipe flashing. When this is the case, a quick application of roofing sealant can stop the leak. Elite Roofers roof repairs and maintenance can help your roof last longer and delay roof replacement for years.
Many builders and cut-corner roofers save money by installing low cost materials like plastic pipe jack boots. With the extreme weather in Texas, we often see the rubber around the pipes expand, crack, and otherwise fail. If the shingles are still pliable, these can be replaced to eliminate a vulnerable leak point on the roof.
A hole in the roof doesn't always mean its time to replace the whole roof. Sometimes, just a few shingles on the hips and ridges are worn down and have been impacted by a tree branch or other debris.
By having a roofing company like Elite Roofers perform a proper roofing repair, you can save thousands, compared to the cost of roof replacement.
Once the damaged shingles have been replaced, you don't have to worry about them again, until it's actually time to replace your roof.
If a Tornado, Hurricane, or other strong wind-storm tears, folds, or breaks a few shingles, it may be possible to replace individual shingles. However, if the roof is older, and the shingles are brittle, it may require replacement of the shingles in a given area or on an entire slope. If damage is on more than half of the slopes, it may be best to file an insurance claim for roof replacement.
If a roof leak has entered your home, it may allow water into insulation and drywall. This would necessitate more than just a roof repair, but also restoration work to remove and replace wet materials, dry out any residual moisture, treat the area with mold inhibitor, hang new drywall, and apply texture and paint. Elite Roofers can take care of it all for you.
