Why Is Maintaining Your Roof Important?

Maintaining a roof is one of the best ways to keep it - and the building it protects - in good condition. During roof maintenance, it’s important to examine your roof for missing asphalt shingles or holes in metal roofing, and check the remaining roof for moss, mold, cracks, and curling.

Your roof is always at the mercy of the elements: sudden changes in temperature can cause splitting or curling, which can lead to lifted shingles that allow water to get in. It’s also important to check for missing or loose flashing, which can lead to water leaks and other, more expensive problems. By finding and repairing these issues as soon as they arise you can extend the useful life of your roof which, in turn, can save you money.

Emergency Repairs

Not all roof repairs are related to basic maintenance. In some cases, your roof may get damaged during a weather event, natural disaster, fire, or other major emergency situation. Unlike roof maintenance, these types of repairs are often far more urgent and more complex, since your insurance company usually gets involved. It can be hard to see your roof devastated by events beyond your control, but it’s important to know that you have trusted professionals ready to do any and all repairs needed to restore your home or business to optimal condition.

When your roof gets damaged due to a weather event, fire, or other major emergency, it’s important to know who to turn to. At Storm Guard, we provide a wide range of roof repairs and work with your insurance company, too. Our aim is to make your roof repairs an efficient and painless process.

Roof Repair Problems & Solutions

When it comes to roof repair, there are some common problems that we see time and time again:

Roof Repair Causes

It’s no surprise that one of the biggest causes of roof damage is weather.

Severe Storms

The most dramatic examples are when severe storms and heat cause cracking or even remove shingles completely.

Everyday Wear & Tear

Everyday wear and tear of being outside causes its fair share of damage to a roof. In fact, aging shingles is one of the biggest reasons that roof problems develop.

Lack of Maintenance

A lack of regular maintenance and repair also contributes to damage, because small problems easily become big problems over time.

Extreme Temperatures

Severe weather that you should be especially aware of is extreme temperatures, which can crack or curl shingles.

High Wind

High winds can also remove shingles from your roof or cause tree limbs to fall on it, causing more damage.

Extreme Rain

If your roof doesn’t have the proper drainage for heavy rain, water can build up and cause roof leaks.

Roof Repair Costs

One of the biggest questions people have when they need their roof repaired is “How much is this going to cost?” A close second is “Do I need to repair this now?”

According to HomeAdvisor, the national average for costs to repair a roof is $962. Depending on the severity of the damage, roof repair can cost on average between:

  • $150 to $400 for minor repairs
  • $400 to $1,200 for moderate repairs
  • $1,200 to $3,5000 for major repairs

The most common roof has asphalt shingles, which are the least expensive to replace. Often, the repair you’re getting with a shingle roof is a leak repair. The roof contractor will need to seal the leak, remove and replace the shingles, and then seal the shingles. If your repair impacts just a small area, this may cost as little as $150. The cost begins to rise if you have a different roof material like wood or metal shingles, or clay, concrete, or slate tiles. While these materials are more expensive to fix, they are also more durable.

Moderate repairs include things like fixing or sealing fixtures on the roof or replacing larger sections of shingles and flashing. Some issues that may increase the cost of a roof repair are fixing improper installation, moss build up, insect nests, or minor damage to the material under the shingles. Leaks and repairs around chimneys and vents also increase cost as the shingles and flashing around the fixture need to be completely removed, replaced, and resealed.

Major repairs, on the other hand, may involve things like replacing an entire roof, or repairing or replacing the material under the roof, such as damaged wood. Leaky skylights are also a more expensive repair, as it requires more of the surrounding shingles to be removed and replaced. Damage to flashing in roof valleys can also cost more for the same reason. Depending on the type of roof you have, including how many slopes and valleys there are, will all play a role in how much it will cost to repair your roof. If the cost of your repair goes beyond $3,500, a roof replacement may be your best option.
