Quality Roof Patching Services
Hailstones fall thousands of feet from the sky and can easily dent, bruise, crack or smash through roofing components and siding. It can be difficult for the untrained eye to detect hail damage. Our trained professionals will carefully check for any signs of hail damage after a storm event.
High winds can lift and break the adhesive seal underneath shingles. If wind-blown debris enters the shingle layer during the storm and prevents the shingle from re-sealing, then the shingle requires repair. We provide wind damage inspections to identify these problems before they allow water intrusion.
Tree branches and other large objects picked up in a storm can fall on your roof, causing destructive impact damage. One of our certified roofing contractors will remove the debris and make a plan to restore your roof.
Why Patch Your Roof?
If you have minimal damage to your roof, you may only need minor repairs. The sooner you catch damage, the better off you’ll be. That’s because roofing problems always grow worse with time. If we catch the issue soon enough, we’ll be able to make repairs and install patches where necessary so you don’t need a premature roof replacement.
How Do You Know if Your Roof Needs to Be Patched?
Short of climbing up on your roof, how can you tell whether it needs to be patched? You should look for the following signs:
- Water stains
- Missing or damaged shingles
- Cracks or punctures
- Visible light
- Increased energy bills
Here’s a closer look at each.
Don't Wait Until Damage Gets Worse.
Warning Sign #1 That Your Roof Needs to Be Patched: Water Stains
If you have water stains on your ceiling or walls, it may be a sign that water is leaking through your roof. Although there are other sources of water incursion, often, people find that roof damage is the culprit. It’s incredibly important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further damage. That’s because water leaks on your roof never get better with time. However, they can become quite a bit worse very quickly.
Water stains on your ceiling or walls can come from a variety of issues, including damaged flashing, missing shingles and even cracked roof vents.
It’s important that you work with a skilled roofing contractor to inspect your roof and find the source of the leak. Sometimes, a simple patch may be all you need to fix the problem and prevent further water damage.
Warning Sign #2 That Your Roof Needs to Be Patched: Missing or Damaged Shingles
If you have missing or damaged shingles, you probably need your roof patched. Several things can damage your shingles, including weather exposure, foot traffic and falling debris. If you leave these shingles unrepaired, water can seep through and damage your roof deck and your home’s interior. It’s incredibly important to get in touch with the professional roofing contractor if your shingles are missing or damaged. That way, someone can replace them with new ones to prevent further issues.
Warning Sign #3 That Your Roof Needs to Be Patched: Cracks or Punctures
Weather damage, foot traffic and falling debris can also cause cracks or punctures in your roof. Often, an expert can repair these cracks and punctures with a patch to prevent further damage or water incursion.
Warning Sign #4 That Your Roof Needs to Be Patched: Visible Light
If you can see light coming through your roof, there’s a hole or gap that needs to be patched immediately. Visible light is a huge problem and means that water can get in. So can pests, debris and other undesirables. You need a professional roofing contractor immediately if you see light coming through your roof.
Warning Sign #5 That Your Roof Needs to Be Patched: Increased Energy Bills
Sometimes, when your roof isn’t working properly, your energy bills will go up. That’s because your roof is supposed to help regulate the temperature inside your home, but if it’s damaged and needs to be patched, it can’t do that properly. That means your HVAC system is working overtime to maintain a steady temperature inside your home.
Storm Damage Checklist
- After a storm has safely passed, assess your roof for storm damage by walking around the perimeter of your property. Look for any obvious signs of damage such as missing, cracked or lifted shingles.
- Check for dents in your gutters and cracks in windows.
- Inspect for fallen tree limbs, broken fences and damage to landscaping.
- Keep an eye out for leaks and water spots inside your home, especially in the attic and on the ceilings of upper rooms.
