Common roofing problems we fix

  1. Roof damage from wind, hail or fallen debris

    The most serious kind of roof damage can happen in a flash. Storm damage like hail, wind, and fallen branches can really do a number on the integrity of your roof. If you notice damage to your roof after a big storm, it’s a good idea to contact a roof repair contractor for an inspection, as small dents and holes in your roof lining can grow into big problems over time.
  2. Cracked, loose, or deteriorating shingles

    Strong winds, extreme temperatures and normal wear and tear can cause your shingles to deteriorate over time. If left untreated, this can cause water to pool or leak into your attic, causing a whole host of other issues.
  3. Ice damming

    In the winter, the heat from your home causes snow and ice to melt. As water runs toward your drastically cooler gutters, it tends to refreeze and create ice dams. These dams can cause a lot of tension on your shingles, leading to leaks into the interior of your home. The best way to prevent ice dams is to ensure your attic is properly insulated.
  4. Rotted fascia

    Fascia are the boards along the base of your roof. They support the shingles and gutters. When these boards become rotted – often due to poor gutters or a misaligned drip edge – it’s vitally important to fix the problem before it gets worse.
  5. Animal nesting

    All kinds of critters and birds will do their darndest to take advantage of the coziness of your home. Any kind of hole in your roof system can provide access to these unwanted visitors. We’re not a pest control company, but we can do our part by shutting down these access points.
  6. Roof buckling

    Roof buckling occurs when the surface of your roof becomes warped due to extreme moisture or heat. Uneven or bent shingles need to be replaced to prevent future problems.
  7. Leaks

    Leaks are a homeowner's worst nightmare. Not only can they damage your valuable belongings, but they can also create a whole host of future problems, like mold, mildew, rotting and more. Whether the leak is coming from your flashing, chimney or roof valley, our expert repairmen have the expertise to fix the issue quickly and keep your family dry.

Leaky roof quick fix tips

  • Remove valuable items: In the event of a roof leak, the first thing you should do is remove any valuable items from the area affected. 
  • Stop your ceiling from bubbling: The bigger the bubble, the more damage is being done to your ceiling. If you see one, pop it with something sharp.
  • Don’t wait for help: Grab a trash can or a pot – anything to prevent the leak from ruining your floors or carpets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does storm damage to shingles look like?

Storm damage to shingles can be caused by heavy rain, hail, wind, and other elements. After a heavy storm, your shingles may become bruised, cracked, lifted, curled, scratched, or have granule loss. It’s always recommended to have a roofing professional inspect your roof after a heavy storm if you suspect there may be damage.

What does wind damage look like on a roof?

Wind damage can be subtle or evident depending on the severity of the wind. The most common signs of wind damage on a roof include lifted or curled shingles, missing shingles, exposed nails, loose or missing granules, and broken or torn shingles. However, a wind storm can also cause other elements of your roof like flashing or gutters to become damaged.

Does homeowners insurance cover storm damage to a roof?

Homeowners' insurance typically covers storm-related damage to roofs, such as from wind, hail, or fallen branches. However, coverage might exclude wear and tear, certain areas with frequent severe weather might have specific exclusions, and flood damage requires a separate policy. Always consult your insurance policy or agent for precise coverage details.
