Many people don’t pay much attention to the roof over their head until they discover a problem. For this reason, homeowners often don’t know much about roofing materials, problems, and repairs. But instead of waiting until a problem arises, learn the basics about roof repair now. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about roof repair in Denver:
Does the entire roof need to be replaced when there are leaks?
Homeowners who spot a leak often believe that their entire roof will need to be replaced in order to fix the issue, but that’s typically not the case. Most of the time, roofers can identify where the leak is coming from and then make necessary repairs to that area. However, if the roof is leaking because it is reaching the end of its lifespan, it may be smarter and less expensive to replace the roof instead of making constant repairs. Should you repair or replace your roof?
Will a warranty cover the repairs?
The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the type of warranty, the time that has passed since the warranty was issued, and the problem with the roof. Warranties usually only cover improper installation of the roofing materials and/or defective roofing materials. If the problem is not caused by either one of these things, the warranty will not cover the repairs. If the problem
is caused by improper installation or defective materials, it’s important to make sure that the warranty has not expired.
Can roof repairs be completed without help from a professional?
Some homeowners may be interested in making the repairs on their own so they don’t have to pay for a professional’s help. However, roof repairs are typically not considered DIY projects. Not only is climbing and working on a roof dangerous, but it’s very easy to make mistakes that could lead to additional damage. For these reasons, it’s strongly recommended that you let the professionals handle these repairs.
How can you tell when a roof is in need of repair?
There are many signs that could indicate a roof is in need of repair, including water spots or leaks inside the home, missing or loose shingles, curling shingles, loose granules, broken flashing, and cracked gutters. If you spot any of these signs, it’s best to get in touch with a roofing professional as soon as possible. A professional can take a closer look at the issue to identify if there is a problem, and if so, what is causing it.
