What Are the Most Common Types of Roof Repairs?

We’re the local pros when it comes to roofing repair in Sugar Land, TX because we know how our weather can specifically damage roofs. We have deep roots in the area and over sixty years of combined experience working with roof repair, roof replacement, and other services. 

You’ll likely need to have repairs done to the roof over your head at some point. There are a range of repairs that you might need, and we’re going to look over the most common ones to help you understand what to look out for and what you might need from our team. 

Leaks and Water Damage

Water leaks are one of the main threats to roofs, since even small leaks can inflict serious damage to the roof underlayment and lead to a need to replace the entire roof. It’s easy for small leaks to start from damaged or missing shingles, decaying flashing, cracked vent pipes, or improper installation of skylights. Our professionals can perform a thorough roof inspection to locate and repair any leaks they find.

Replacing Shingles

Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing material due to their durability and affordable cost. However, they can become damaged over time. High winds (common in our area), heavy rain, and exposure to UV rays can cause shingles to curl, crack, or get ripped off the roof. Damaged shingles compromise the roof’s ability to protect against the elements and can lead to leaks. You want to have any damaged shingles replaced as soon as possible—and leave the job to professionals. 

Flat Roof Repairs

Although flat roofs are more common for commercial buildings, more modern houses and townhomes have them. These roofs are susceptible to problems from pooling water, punctures, and membrane damage. Ponding water on flat roofs can lead to leaks and structural damage, while punctures and tears can occur from falling debris or extreme weather conditions. Our roofers can perform repairs that include patching or replacing damaged areas, fixing faulty drainage systems, and applying protective coatings.

Flashing Repair or Replacement

What’s flashing? It’s the material that seals up parts of a roof around vents, chimneys, skylights, dormers, and ridges. Flashing can deteriorate over time because of the weather and sun exposure. Damaged flashing may be bent, rusted, cracked, or improperly installed. Without repairs, damaged flashing will allow water to leak into the roof and cause permanent damage. 

Gutter Maintenance and Repair

Although gutters are not part of the roof structure, they play an essential role in channeling water away from the roof and the foundation of a home. Clogged or damaged gutters can cause water to overflow onto the roof, leading to rot, mold growth, and other water-related issues. We recommend regular gutter cleaning, repairs, and replacements to ensure they continue to protect your home. 

Although you probably don’t think about your roof most of the time, make sure you pay attention to anything unusual, especially after a major storm or hail fall. If you suspect you have any damage, reach out to us for an inspection.
