Many roofing companies try to do it all. At Russell Roofing, we’ve developed our expertise, and focus on helping homeowners protect their investments by repairing their roofs.
Roof repair projects can take on several forms. It can mean repairing a small section of a roof in as little as a few hours, or it can entail full roof replacement or restoration.
Since all projects are different, here are some frequently asked questions to help you get a better idea of what’s involved with roof repair:
Since damage can involve more than meets the eye, we can only answer this questions once we’ve had a chance to inspect your roof. Several factors are involved in determining the severity of your roofing job. Factors include age of old roof, damage location and severity.
Depending on the age of your roof, repairing it may be a band aid on a problem that needs a bigger solution like roof replacement. If your roof is 30 years or older, you may be looking at replacing your roof rather than fixing it. At that age, new problems are more likely, and fixing it will cost more in the long run. Newer roofs are a better fit for roof repair.
Cost of full roof replacement depends on a number of factors like how many roofs are currently on your house.
Building codes in Maryland allow for up to two layers of shingles on top of each other. This means, if your roof has been replaced before, you will likely need to remove both roofs before you can have a new one installed. This is a bigger project that involves more labor and is more expensive.
If you only have one layer, our team may be able to add a new roof right on top, saving time and labor, and saving you money.
This all depends on the condition of your current roof. If the damage is minor, we may be able to fix those spots, and avoid full replacement. If the damage extends to the structure or frame, we may have to dig deeper to address the full extent of damage.
If you’re concerned about your roof, and want to know the best path forward, the best idea is to schedule a free estimate. We’ll send out one of our roofing experts to inspect your roof and tell you your options. You can decide which path forward is right for you.
Maybe you see that your roof is leaking a little and that you can get up there, fix it yourself, and save some money.
While it may seem like a good idea, we strongly discourage doing this.
Fixing a roof leak may seem simple, but it’s a bigger job than just patching the spot where water is dripping.
Most of the time, water gets under the surface level, saturating the roof frame, and collects and leaks in one place. It’s hard to tell when a leak starts, and depending on length and severity, you may be looking at underlying issues like mold, rot, or structural damage. These are serious issues that need to be addressed immediately.
If you see that your roof is leaking, call a roofing contractor immediately. We will come out and inspect your roof and investigate the severity of the damage. From there, we’ll recommend a plan to fix your roof, and go from there. We will fix the whole problem so you won’t have any lingering issues in the future.
If you have an old or historic home that you want to preserve and the roof is damaged, roof restoration may be the right option for you. The key difference between restoration and standard roof repair is that we try to preserve the integrity and look of the old roof, which typically involves using the original materials and building methods.
Sometimes, this means we can’t do the project. Restoration is tricky, and whether or not we can complete the job depends on the nature of your roofing needs. Keeping code on older homes is more involved and complex to fix. If we can restore your roof, we will gladly get the project done for you.
Properly repairing your roof is a serious job that should be left to the experts. At Russell Roofing Company, we’ve been helping customers repair and replace their residential roofs for years.
