Tips for Selecting a Roofing Repair Service
The following are some tips for selecting a roofing repair service.

Tip #1: Don’t Put Off Roof Repairs or Replacement
Leaks, mold, and visible shingle damage are important signs that your roof needs repairing or replacing. Delaying a roof repair or replacement too long can cause additional damage to your home and, depending on the current condition of your roof, could even be dangerous. If your roof is in bad shape, repairing your roof may be a quicker and cheaper option, but roof replacement will ensure the stability of the structure since replacements typically include fixing of the underlying structure.

Tip #2: Select a Good Contractor
Roofing contractors should be licensed and should have good insurance. The Secretary of State can confirm the contractor’s registration, and the contractor’s listed insurance company can confirm that coverage is accurate and current. Insurance coverage should include liability and worker’s compensation. You don’t want to be responsible for injuries or damages that are the fault of the roofing repair service and its employees. All construction jobs should include a written contract, which you should read carefully before signing. Deposits are standard procedure, but be cautious when any contractor requests the entire construction bill upfront. When in doubt about a specific roofing contractor, check their reputation. This website is a great resource for customer reviews.

Tip #3: Make Sure the Work is Guaranteed
New roofs and parts of roofs will come with a warranty. A warranty that covers only materials will not cover the cost of labor, so try to select a warranty that includes both. While it is a good sign when a roofing repair service backs up their work with a guarantee, remember that a company guarantee is only valid so long as the company is in business.

Every residential property needs a solid roof free of leaks to protect the occupants from rain and cold. Repair contractors specialize in this specific construction helping to insulate a home from the bitter cold and keep rain from entering the crawlspace or attic. Before hiring a contractor, consider the most important questions you should ask.

  • What materials are best for my home?
    Materials come in a variety of options. Steel or metal panels last upwards of 50 years making them a great choice for replacement or new construction. Slate tiles last up to 150 years, but they are extremely expensive. In addition, slate is attached with nails that do corrode allowing tiles to slip out of place. Asphalt shingles are the preferred choice of homeowners. Choose from three-tab or architectural tiles, but you should know that architectural tiles create the best visual look because of their multiple layered appearance and will last longer than the inexpensive three-tab versions.

  • How do you attach the materials during a repair?
    Avoid any company that uses staples. In heavy winds, staples are notorious for allowing the materials to separate from the plywood. You'll end up with missing shingles and water damage if it rains. Professionals should use the short nails specifically designed for the job.

  • What type of underlay do you use?
    Roofing felt should be placed under any asphalt, steel or slate tiles. In cold climates, thicker material that insulates the attic or crawlspace is a better option. Eaves should have metal flashing to prevent damage from snow or ice build up.
