What Are the Steps for Roof Repairs? 

Calling and setting an appointment with Matlock Roofing is the first step. Matlock Roofing will send a project manager to your home or business to find where your roof leak is coming from and determine what needs to be repaired after doing an inspection of your roof. 

Next, your project manager will ask you some questions to see if there is a history of roofing issues. Our roofers are trained and knowledgeable when it comes to finding the source of your roofing problem. 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 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 of your roof. 

Once your project manager has inspected your roof for storm damage, your project manager will give you his recommendations whether you need a roof repair or if you need a new roof installed if significant damage is found. 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. 

Possible Results

When comparing a roof to be repaired versus a roof to be replaced, it is important to determine the cost of the repair and compare that against the cost of replacement. 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 spend thousands of dollars on a new roof and could help get you many more years of good service out of your current roofing system.
