Roof Repair

By True Roofing

Residential Roof Repair

Most roofs are very durable and rarely need repair. But like everything else, they could suffer damage, leakage, and other problems which could affect their performance. This does not mean that they need to be fully replaced, the majority of roof damage requires just a little bit of work and they work perfectly again.

Installing a roof is a major investment. You can protect this investment by fixing issues in the early stages. You firstly acknowledge that there is a problem and know that you need to call a roofing company. Once you have done this, you have taken the first step to lengthen the life of your roof. A small repair can go a long way.

Causes of Roof Damage

Most damages to roofs are caused by weather but there are also other things that damage roofs. These things can help you to repair the roof in time and strengthen the life of your roof.


Weather events like hail storms, hurricanes, thunderstorms, high heat and more can cause serious damage to your roof. They can break thingles, cause openings where water can get in. It is important that following any one of these weather events, you call your roofing company to inspect your roof for any damage.


Like all things, as your roof ages, so does its strength. The kinds of things that it would have been able to withhold in the past will now cause serious damage to it. If you have an old roof, you should have it inspected regularly as it is prone to damages.

Foot Traffic

Depending on the amount of traffic your roof gets, damages can be done to it. If you regularly have workers at your roof, you must inspect your roof once every worker is done. This would help you sight small issues in time before they become severe.

Improper Installation

As is expected, not all professionals give a high-quality job. Sometimes your roof installation could be wrong and make your roof vulnerable to damage. This is not good for your roof as after any small interference or inconvenience you deal with major problems. Talk to your contractor to fix the moment you notice anything out of place. You would be saving yourself a lot of future costs and trouble. 

Working with NE roofing contractors will help you avoid any such problem. With the use of quality materials and a highly trained team, we can guarantee you the best roof installation.

A consistent, reliable, and true to their word roofing contractor will do things the same high quality way every time. If a roofing company you're consulting has no predictable process, they also have no predictable results. In other words, the return on your investment with them will be a gamble. At True Roofing, our roofing process is the same whether it's for a minor roof repair or a major roof replacement. Our results are high quality, reliable, predictable, repeatable. 


The Inspection

The inspection is the first step many contractors skimp on. That's a mistake that can cost both you as the customer and the roofer dearly. That doesn't mean it has to take a long time, however. An inspection by an experienced and highly qualified roofing veteran can be conducted in 30-60 minutes and again, they will follow a set process with a checklist to ensure complete assessment of the situation. If a roofer is casual about assessing your roof and flippant about quoting you thousands of dollars for repairs or installation, we suggest you move on to another company. The inspection sets the ground work for everything else.


Working Out The Details

The quoting, discussion of budgetary concerns, payment options such as financing, and finally scheduling. If you have any special notes or concerns, if you have specific scheduling, if you want a certain type of shingle, custom metal roof, tile roof, etc., we will discuss all these details with you, answer every possible question you have, and ensure you're ready to move on. True Roofing will never use high pressure sales tactics, nor will we ever need to. You will see the value upfront, and we do everything possible to make our services as affordable as possible to everyone at all budget levels. No high pressure sales, ever.


Doing it Right the First Time

The last step is to actually get out there and do the work. Whether it's a minor repair, major repair, small installation, major replacement, your roofing crew will treat it with the same level of attention that we treat all our projects. Armed with the detailed inspection notes and knowing exactly what needs to be done, prepared with the schedule and time frames, and any special notes & concerns you may have, our crew can proceed along the previously agreed on plan and execute it flawlessly. The purpose of the process is to standardize results, and we carry that mindset into our work on the roof as well. Do it once, do it right.

Not keeping up with repairs 

Your roof needs as much care and attention as the rest of your home. When damages, leaks, and other issues are fixed almost immediately, many more irreparable damages are prevented. Keep your gutters clean and inspect the roof regularly. Always call your contractor as soon as you notice anything. 

Clogged Gutters

Clean your gutters when you notice they are clogged. When water is concentrated somewhere, it becomes easier to find cracks to get into and thereby causing leakage. Ensure to keep track of this as often as possible.

Signs that you need to repair your roof

  • Shingles are curled, cracked, or absent 
  • Shingles are dirty, dark, or wet 
  • Wear and tear around roof objects and openings 
  • Blistering it peeling exterior paint 
  • Staining on interior ceilings or walls 
  • Leaks in the attic after a rainstorm 
  • Sagging roof deck 
  • Higher energy bills 
  • The presence of outside light in your attic 
  • Lots of shingle granules in gutters.

Your scheduled inspection and maintenance can only happen so often. These are some signs that can help you tell when there is damage to your roof. You should inform your contractor upon noticing any of this for an inspection. There may or may not be any damage but it is best to be certain.
