When you discover something wrong with your home’s roof, you may wonder if a roof repair is the best option and if it’s the most cost-effective solution for your situation.
You’re not alone in this thought, and knowing when it’s time to call in the professionals to assess and repair your roof is essential in minimizing long-term damage and replacement costs.
Roofing repair is largely unregulated, and there are, unfortunately, many people who will take on the task of fixing your roof when they don’t have the professional experience or knowledge to do so.
The first thing you want to do before getting any quotes is to ensure you’re getting top-quality service from highly-skilled individuals that have been trained to properly repair your roof. This can save you a lot of headaches in the future, ensuring you don’t overpay, end up with more damage, or pay for a service that doesn’t solve your problem.
Often, when you’re missing shingles or your roof is leaking, the issue is more widespread than that one area, and a full assessment is the only way to get to the root cause of the problem.
Here are some of the most common roof repairs we see, the factors that may influence the cost of your roof repair and how much you can expect to pay when your roof needs to be repaired.
A roof may need to be repaired for a variety of reasons, and in some cases, getting someone up on your roof as soon as possible is essential in protecting your roof from further damage.
Emergencies happen, and if left untreated while you wait for an appointment to open up, your roof will be more susceptible to additional damage. This is where an emergency repair comes in.
Emergency repairs are temporary repairs that are meant to contain the problem and manage it until a full assessment and repair can be done in the future. Some issues with your roofing that should be treated immediately when found include:
- Missing shingles
- Roof leaks
- Structural damage
- Ice damming
- Missing or damaged vents
- Missing eavestroughs, soffit, and fascia
These issues can be the result of storms, extreme temperature fluctuations, or simply age. Routinely checking your roof will help you identify these issues early on and schedule a repair as soon as they occur, helping you easily maintain the integrity of your roof.
Not all roofs require an emergency repair, and if they do, they’ll need a follow-up repair to better fix the issue long-term. The most common repairs we perform include
- Animal damage
- Missing or damaged shingles
- Skylight repairs
- Flare membrane repair
- Winter roof repair
- Repairs to roof flashing
- Eavestrough, soffit and fascia repairs
We also perform general roofing system and ventilation assessments to ensure your roof is in the best condition.
Roofing repairs can range in price depending on a variety of factors, and it’s important to be aware of what can influence the final price.
The only way to provide a quote is through a thorough inspection of your roof. There is no way to know exactly what you’re roof needs and how much it’s going to cost without inspecting it, so this is a vital part of the process.
When it comes to repairs, during our inspection, we look at more than just the original aspect that caused concern. We inspect the surrounding areas, consider the deeper root cause of the issue, and work to curate the best solution possible to ensure your roof is left in optimal condition after our work is complete.
When it comes to your estimate, the factors that can influence the price include the:
- Type of roof (asphalt shingles, metal, etc.)
- Extent of the damage
- Size of the roof
- Estimated timeframe to make the repairs
- Materials needed
Whether it’s a roof repair or replacement, it’s important to be informed, and the cost of repairs will be heavily influenced by your specific set of circumstances. Here are some common price ranges that can help you feel more prepared before getting your quote.
For any roofing repairs, you’ll generally be charged anywhere between $300 and $15,000, with severe repairs resulting in higher prices.
