common roof repairs
- Broken or Missing Shingles: This is commonly due to high winds. You are going to remove broken shingle with nails and replace with a new one and nail in place.
- Vent Pipe Leak: This is one of the most common issues we see. Sometimes it can be an easy fix of sealing the boot. Other times it will need to be completely replaced. Plumbing boots will not have the same lifespan as your roof and will always need to replaced.
- Cracked Chimney: Chimneys can have cracks that let in water. Old caulking can also be cracked due to old age, breaking the water-tight seal.

When should you replace your roof rather than repair it?
A roof repair can fix your leak and give your home that protection for many years to come. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Multiple repairs typically mean your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.
An important factor to consider when deciding whether to replace or just repair it, is your roof age. As roofs age, they will need more and more repairs. You will save money in the long run if you replace an old roof.
If you are looking at extensive damage to your roof that is going to cost thousands of dollars then you should consider replacing your whole roof to save time and money.
