Why replace when you can repair, especially when it comes to roof repair? The Roof Doctor has built a reputation on doing what’s best for the client: You. True, roofs have an average
True, roofs have an average life span of about 20 years, but those years can often get extended with proper maintenance and repairs. There’s also no guarantee that a roof will last two decades. Storm damage, small issues that are neglected, a lack of regular inspections and sheer bad luck can all cause roof replacement before you know it. However, with The Roof Doctor on call for checkups and repairs, you can enjoy a longer lasting, higher quality roof.
Utah Roof Repair Specialist
A lot of outside influences can wreak havoc on your home. Hail, pests, a moss infestation, sun rays, even debris from a plane (it happens). Your roof takes a serious beating on a daily basis. It’s what keeps you safe from winter storms, cool during the summers and it plays a major role in trapping hot air in the winter and cool air in the summer. Even if it’s not on its last leg—or shingle—lack of maintenance can mean your roof isn’t performing as well as it could be.
From major repairs to minor tweaks, The Roof Doctor has your best interest at heart. No repairs are recommended unless they’re necessary, estimates are always free and repairs are always done quickly by highly skilled professionals who receive ongoing training.
Your roof is one of the most important aspects of your home, but it can’t do its job without a little help. Whether you suspect there’s a problem like a leak or you just want to schedule an annual inspection, let The Roof Doctor care for what’s overhead.
Utah’s Professional Roof Inspections
Many property owners try to tackle “inspections” and repairs themselves. While some extremely handy people may be able to manage, it’s risky at best. Only experts can inspect a roof thoroughly and safely while spotting red flags that are easy to miss. Plus, a DIY approach doesn’t come with an installation warranty. Let The Roof Doctor take care of your roof while you sit back and reap the benefits.
With repairs, the sooner you act the better off you’ll be. Waiting won’t do your roof or your budget any favors. Remember: Your roof won’t always tell you there’s a problem. Some issues are invisible until they’re too late, so rely on regular inspections from The Roof Doctor to be on the safe side.
Some of the most common types of roof repair in Salt Lake City include:
- Replacing shingles — Whether due to a storm or some other reason, you may find that your roof is missing one or more shingles. Alternatively, your shingles may be split, lifting or losing granules. Replacing shingles is a fairly quick, straightforward job, and it keeps your roof safe, dry and in good condition.
- Fixing leaks — When you need roof leak repair, it’s important to get it done right away. Waiting only allows more water to get into your home, threatening your structure with mold, mildew and wood rot. While leaks that appear as stains on your ceilings are the worst, it is possible to have a roof leak that you can’t see inside your home. It’s a good idea to check your attic from time to time for signs of moisture.
- Repairing flashing — The flashing around your chimney, roof vents, skylights or in the roof valleys can bend, pop up or otherwise fail, allowing water to leak into your home. Our quality roofing services include repairing flashing on Salt Lake City homes and businesses.
Whether you own a home or a business in Salt Lake City, rely on The Roof Doctor for professional roofing services such as emergency roof repair, residential roofing replacement, roof installation and roof maintenance services.
How much do roof repairs cost?
The cost of roof repairs varies depending on the size and severity of the problem. Our roof service company always gives you a free estimate for repairs so you can have the opportunity to decide how you want to proceed. Some repairs you can take time to save up for, while others are of a more immediate nature. We give detailed estimates as well, showing the costs for materials and labor, and we can go over the repair process with you so you understand what needs to be done and how long to expect the repair to last.
How long do roof repairs take?
Roof repairs in Salt Lake City can take from as little as an hour to as long as almost a day, depending on what needs to be done. If your roof repair is quick, we can get your job on the schedule fairly quickly, but if it’s a longer job, we might need to schedule it further out. But don’t worry — if the problem is a leak, we can put a tarp on your roof to minimize damage until the roof repairs are done.
Can I save money doing my own roof repairs?
Of all the DIY projects, roof repair is one that is not a good idea for homeowners to take on. Simply walking on a roof is dangerous; doing work on the roof is even more so. Our residential roofing contractors use special equipment to help ensure they don’t slip off the roof, and they use cables and harnesses to prevent falls. A fall from a roof can have devastating — and even deadly — consequences.
What do roof repairs involve?
It depends on the type of damage your roof has suffered. Our roof repair contractors frequently replace shingles that have come loose or blown off during a storm. Roof leak repairs may involve tearing off some shingles and underlayment to get to the roof deck underneath. Once we patch the holes, we cover the area with new underlayment and shingles. Other common types of roof repairs our roofing company makes include replacing flashing, repairing leaks around skylights and improving ventilation. We also repair soffits and fascia as well as gutters and rotting sections of roofs that may have resulted from ice damming. Emergency roof repairs are usually due to storm damage such as hail or a tree or limb falling on your roof.
