Most Common Roof Repairs
Prime Roofing & Exteriors has been in the roofing business for over two decades and we’re well acquainted with the damage that a Maryland winter can cause to a roof. Although you should always work to perform roof maintenance proactively, there will be times when your roof needs to be either replaced or repaired. It can help to be well acquainted with the common repairs your roof may need in its lifetime.
Here are some of the most common roof repairs you’ll want to be aware of:
- Wood root
- Attic ventilation
- Leaking pipe boots
- Leaking chimney
- Leaking skylights
- Roof Leaks
- Hail or snow damage
- Damage from ice dams
- Damaged roof flashing
- Missing shingles
- Water pooling
Rule number one in home improvement planning is to be specific to get an accurate estimate. A copper, zinc, or aluminum metal roof is a system. Apart from the roofing panels, realize that other components also factor into the overall project cost. Sort everything out to eliminate allowances in the budget.
The law allows you to install a second layer of roofing materials. If you haven’t done so, buying a new roof without touching the existing ones can save you a lot of money. The biggest benefit of choosing metal for a roof overlay is its lightweight. In other words, your home is likely to support its heft without reconfiguring your home’s structure. Keep in mind that this is not always possible. Code allows going over one layer of asphalt, however, to do so the asphalt shingles must be in relatively good condition. With its exceptional strength, metal can keep your roof repair costs to a minimum even eliminate them for decades.
Include the costs of labor and permit application to know how much the project would really cost. Focusing on the cost of materials alone wouldn’t paint the big picture.
Be financially prepared for the possibility of additional work. It’s not uncommon to discover unforeseen damage that must be addressed first. You should allow about 20% of your budget to contingencies to absorb new expenses and prevent delays.
Ice dams can be caused by a number of things. Most often we have seen them happen because of a lack of proper insulation or ventilation in the roofing area. Sometimes they can be caused by poor quality or missing materials on the roof (such as Ice and Water). Other times still Ice Dams are caused by the weather and there is no fault with the roof at all. To determine this, we recommend having a roofing expert come do an inspection to see what your cause of ice dams is, and what can be done to prevent them in the future.
Not necessarily but if your gutters and downspouts are the same age as your existing roof, you may need to. We has been professionally installing gutters and downspouts in Maryland homes for years and can work with you to choose the right materials and colors for your home. Gutters and downspouts are made out of aluminum, vinyl, galvanized steel, stainless steel and copper as well as wood. Wood, however, is typically used only in restoring older homes.
Our roofing experts are well versed in evaluating roofs and how long they have left in their lifecycle. We give an honest opinion on these things, so if you can get away with a repair to buy yourself a couple more years, that’s what you’ll be told. We are not about pushy salesman, fear tactics, or bending the truth to convince you to buy something. We believe in the relationship between our company and the community we serve and know that your ability to trust us to be honest and fair is paramount to our long-term success, as both a company and as human beings, and when it is time for you to need roofing services we want to be the ones you remember and trust to serve you, your family, and everyone you tell about us.
