Types of Roof Damage

There are several types of roof damage that can occur, from a simple leak to full-blown roof failure. A good contractor will be able to identify the source of the problem and recommend the best course of action. Some of the most common types of roof damage include:

  • Leaks – Leaks can occur anywhere on the roof, but are most often found near the chimney or vent pipe, around the roof edges, or in valleys.
  • Holes – A hole in the roof can be caused by a number of things, including a fallen tree branch, a broken shingle, or hail damage.
  • Missing Shingles – Shingles can become loose and blow away in high winds, or they may be damaged by hail or UV radiation.
  • Blistering and Peeling – Excessive heat or cold can cause shingles to blister or peel.
  • Moss and Algae – Moss and algae can cause roofs to deteriorate quickly, and they can also be a fire hazard.


Reasons for Residential Roof Repair

There are a few reasons why homeowners might need to do some residential roof repair. One of the most common reasons is because the roof is old and needs to be replaced. Another reason is because of storm damage. When a roof takes a beating from bad weather, it can cause all sorts of problems, including leaks. And finally, sometimes the roof just wears out over time and needs to be replaced.

Roof Repair Safety Tips

Whenever you’re doing any kind of roof repair, there are a few safety tips you should adhere to. First and foremost, make sure you use the appropriate safety equipment. This includes things like a sturdy ladder, work gloves, eye protection, and closed-toe shoes.

Secondly, inspect the roof before beginning any work. Make sure to remove any debris or hazards that could interfere with the job—such as broken tiles or nails—and take care to not damage the existing material.

Next up is weather! Make sure to choose a day when the weather is mild and dry—you don’t want rain or wind getting in your way while you’re working. And finally, it’s important to make sure that you don’t work alone! Get a friend or family member to help out—not only will they be able to help you out with the task at hand; they can also ensure your safety should anything go wrong.

Warning Signs of a Deteriorating Roof

Need to know if your roof is deteriorating? Look out for certain warning signs that tell you it’s time to call in a professional.

  • The first sign of a problem is cracked, curled, or missing shingles—especially on the south-facing slope. If you spot this, it could be caused by too much heat or heavy outdoor activities like snowfall and hail. Check your attic too—if you notice any leaks it’s a sign that water has been getting through the roof.
  • Next, check if any of your roof’s flashings have been damaged or dislodged. Flashings are the metal strips that protect areas such as vent pipes and skylights. And finally, watch out for moss and algae growth—these could indicate improper drainage or a lack of sunlight. If left unaddressed, these problems will only get worse over time.
  • Take note of any potential problems and don’t hesitate to call a professional should you need help with repairs!

Cost of Residential Roof Repair and Upkeep

When it comes to cost, the amount of money you spend on residential roof repair and maintenance will depend on the size of your roof and the materials used. Generally speaking, a typical repair will run you anywhere from $100 to $300. If you’re dealing with more serious damage, repairs could cost thousands of dollars.

Of course, maintenance is always cheaper than replacing your entire roof. To avoid costly repairs, try to inspect your roof at least twice a year and make sure it’s regularly cleaned, cleared of debris and all worn out / missing shingles are replaced. This can often be done for less than $200 and is a great way to help extend the life of your roof.

Proper roof repair prevents costly replacement because it maintains the integrity of the entire roofing system and all of its components, guaranteeing its performance. It also solves the originating source of roof issues like hard to find leaks. When it’s done to manufacturer specification, it maintains the existing roof warranty.

If you’re in need of roof repair, be sure to contact a professional. Do not try to climb up on the roof and fix the problem yourself—you could seriously injure yourself, or worse. A professional roofer will be able to diagnose the problem and fix it quickly and efficiently, so you can rest assured that your roof is in good hands.

Exact vs Like-Kind

In order to maintain existing warranties, manufacturers require exact or like-kind replacement of specific roof components. For older roofs still under warranty, manufacturers offer legacy or like-kind replacement that match color and style.
