Should You Repair, Repair Or Replacement Your Roof
The strongest seasons are storm damage, hail strong, wind these are the most common that leave damage to roofs such as shingle pieces raised or completely broken, small perforations due to very large hail blow if not detected in time.

However, a big storm, ice dams, high winds, hail, a fallen tree, or even heavy foot traffic on the roof can create problems that just can’t wait. If water is leaking into the attic or living space, don’t put off calling or attempt to patch the leak on your own. Finding all the places where water is entering a structure is an art. It takes years of experience for roofers to become truly adept at detecting leak sources

Most homeowners, whether commercial or residential, often struggle with the doubt of whether they need roof replacement, or repair to find out if a roof should be replaced or repaired you should call a local or trusted contractor to do a full roof inspection with pictures and videos if the damage was found in more than 3 or 5 places like valley, flashing pipe, flashing vents, flashing led, on the chimney also in the corner where the shingle are raised since those are the most fragile places for repairs and it is not convenient for you to pay expensive repairs that would not be different for a roof replacement with a good guarantee.

1. When should you repair your roof?

When should you call about a possible roof repair? Basically, as soon as you identify or suspect a potential problem is the time to call. One missing shingle might not be an emergency if everything else is sound, making it possible to wait until the optimal season for roof work. Alternately, quite often one small issue such as a flashing a little out of place or a small tear in a pipe jack can cause an immediate leak.

However, a big storm, ice dams, high winds, hail, a fallen tree, or even heavy foot traffic on the roof can create problems that just can’t wait. If water is leaking into the attic or living space, don’t put off calling or attempt to patch the leak on your own. Finding all the places where water is entering a structure is an art. It takes years of experience for roofers to become truly adept at detecting leak sources

2. When should your patch your Roof?

As always, we recommend you talk to your local roofer first. What might look like a small patch job on the outside could be more serious once your roofer gets up there to make a close examination. Your roofer will look to see if there’s any water damage to the underlayment or seeping into your attic.

If there’s no serious water damage, you might be able to get your roof patched. Remember that it’s tough to match roof color, especially if your existing shingles have already seen a bit of weathering. You may not get an exact match, so the patch could be noticeable. But, if it will save you money and keep your roof in top shape, patching might be the way to go for you

3.When I should replace my roof

When it comes to your home, an ounce of prevention is most definitely worth a pound of cure. In other words, regular maintenance is good for both your home’s appearance and your wallet. Putting off needed repairs might save you in the short-term, but it will end up costing you a lot more in the long run. However, not all home improvement decisions are cut and dry. For example, it’s sometimes possible — and entirely acceptable — to repair a roof rather than replace it. Which route you take depends on several factors, including the type of damage and what percentage of the total roof surface is in need of repair.

When I reached out to them I did not expected them to get back to me so quickly. The moment he came out and gave me a quote and we scheduled for the same week. Thank you to all your teammates for doing a fabulous job!

I have missing soffits at the edge of my roof. Mice were using the holes to get into my attic. Even though the job is small, Luis came and fixed them for me the very next day after my calling for service. Quality and professional work, easy to communicate with and with reasonable cost. I am a happy customer.

Luis and his crew replaced my roof shingles and three skylights in 2 days. They protected the shrubs around my house and cleaned up the roofing nails with a magnetic broom. After they left you would not know that they were ever there. They are all very pleasant, hard workers, and I may be hiring them to repair the ceiling that was damaged due to roof leaks. Definitely 5 stars!
