Tips about Roof Repairs
Often when a homeowner discovers a brown stain on their ceiling or a water drip through the ceiling drywall or even some rotted wood along the edge of their home; they reach out to a local Roofing contractor and sign with the fastest guy to roll up to the door. Mistake…Big Mistake! It’s a classic scenario. The homeowner distressed has their personal belongings getting wet or damaged and goes into emergency mode. That can be the time when a wrong decision can cost more than just money.
Here’s some tips about the process of doing a repair:
* Never expect instant results- never expect a roofing repair man to show up at your door with all the right materials the first time, unless his company has pre-examined your roof.
* Leaks are strange- roof leaks can start from one location and travel under the roof or attic sideways or downhill to another location. A good troubleshooting of your leak scenario often with roof surgery will solve it.
* Expect hidden damage- there can be damage to the deck, roof structure or attic materials from your roof leak. Rotten wood or mold may be present in your home and mold can be a health risk.
* Appearance matters- installing the wrong color shingle/metal or tile can create a poorly looking repair. This can cheapen the appearance of your home, draw the attention of a HOA or lower the value of your home.
* Pay for what you get- Paying a fair price for an detailed list of repairs by a licensed contractor with proper insurance is worthwhile. These types of repairs will likely last longer, they come with a warranty and you’ll be protected by the contractor’s insurance during and after the work is finished. (typically 6 months to 2 years on repairs)
