Roof Repairs & Emergency Leaks
Small roof repairs are an important aspect of maintaining your property's curb appeal while preventing larger damages. While an initial leak may only impact only a few shingles, it could lead to larger problems down the line if not addressed right away. Luckily, a skilled roofing contractor can often fix the issue without having to replace the entire roof.
Cold Process: Cold process roofing is a “build-up” roofing system (BUR) that uses a water or solvent based adhesive to build up multiple layers of roofing material. The end product is similar to torch down roofing, but the lifespan is slightly shorter at ~10 years.
Single Ply: Single ply membranes are sheets made of rubber or other synthetics that can be adhered to roofs using mechanical fasteners or adhesives. There are two main forms: Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) and Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM). A single play roof can last for 25-40 years.
EPDM: In an Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) roof, synthetic rubber sheeting is mechanically fastened to the roof. EPDM roofing is a popular option for commercial buildings because it is durable and easy to repair. EPDM roofs can last for 25-40 years depending on the structure and type of materials used.
TPO: Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a similar process and product to EPDM but has extra light reflecting capabilities. TPO can also be more durable, but does require extra time to install. A well-maintained TPO roof can last for 25 to 30 or more years.
Slate Tile: Similar to ceramic tile, slate tile is a very popular option for residential roofs. Slate is a high quality, attractive material. This durable, long-lasting material is fireproof and can last for 60-100 years if maintained correctly. This also makes it an environmentally-friendly solution.
Small Repairs Can Prevent the Need for a Complete Replacement
Even a small hole can lead to worse damage if it is not addressed in time. If you are working with an older roof, it is especially important to deal with moderate damage in order to prevent structural problems or costly utility bills from heat and cooling losses. A few missing shingles may seem like a small issue, but over a few years it could lead to mold, water damage or impacts to the aesthetic value of your home.
Roof Leaks Can Lead to Health & Safety Risks
A professional roofing company can determine whether the wet patches on your roof are indicative of issues like mold or a water damaged roof. Unfortunately, these issues can be widespread and impact the quality of air and allergens in your property. Furthermore, a timely roof replacement can prevent a dangerous roof collapse.
Timely Repairs May be Less Expense
It's likely that whatever roof repair you need will only get worse over time. In many cases, it will cost less to address minor repairs now rather than dealing with a larger roof replacement project down the line.
Roof Damage Impacts Your Property's Curb Appeal
Whether you are looking to sell your property now or improve your return on investment over time, working with a roofing contractor to repair or replace your roof as it ages is a great way to preserve your property value. Not only is a sagging roof less attractive, but it can negatively impact your insurance rates and resale value.

The condition of your roof is one of the most important factors in keeping the rest of your home safe and dry. Having your roof inspected and regularly repaired will bring you peace of mind. Even if a comprehensive roof repair is not required, you'll rest easy knowing that your property is safe and taken care of.

Roof Age & Repairs
Hot summers combined with damp winters and high winds can cause old shingles to warp and degrade over time.

Ask your professional roofer to look for stained ceilings, leaks, and mold as a sign that your roof has water damage.
