What Are the Steps in Roof Repairs?
Calling and setting an appointment with Matlock Construction & Roofing is the first step. One of our project managers will come to your home to inspect your roof to find where your roof leak is coming from.
Next your project manager will ask you some questions to see if there is a history of roofing issues. After your project manager asks you a few questions, he will walk around your home and see if he spots any ceiling stains you may have missed.
Next, your project manager will do a full inspection of your roof. He will narrow down the problem and let you know why you have water leaking in through your roof or why your shingles may be coming off of your roof. A very common problem that causes sliding shingles is high nailing the shingles during a roof installation.
When shingles are high nailed the nails are placed too high and the roofing crew missed what is called the nail line on the shingle. Over time this will make the shingle vulnerable to high winds blowing them up and ultimately off your roof.
Next, your project manager will give you his recommendations for either a roof repair or if storm damage is found possibly a new roof. Depending on the age of your roof, if a roof repair goes over 31% of the cost of a new roof your project manager may recommend a new roof installation.
If the cost of the roof repair is under 31% of the cost of a new roof it is very likely he will recommend a roof repair. In many cases a roof repair can save you from having to get a new roof and could help get you many more years of good service out of your current roofing system.
