Your roof system is made up of a variety of different areas that all serve essential purposes when it comes to the protection of your home.

While roof repair can seem like a hassle, our team does everything we can to ensure your repairs go as smoothly as possible.
Your shingles are designed to keep the majority of your roof protected from the elements. As a deterrent for water above all else, your shingles are the number one level of defense for your roof decking. Any holes or gaps in your shingles, along with any missing or broken areas, can allow water to seep into the roof decking. This water can cause extensive damage before you find it, which is often very expensive to repair. It is essential that you keep an eye out for any sign of shingle damages, and have them repaired shortly after you see them.
Soffit & Fascia:
Your soffit and fascia, while separate parts of your roof, work hand in hand to protect the edges of your roofing system. With that in mind, it is important to be able to identify any issues with these areas. Common problems come from age, as well as animal or insect nesting habits. If you see any signs of damage around the edging of your roof, give us a call right away!
Flashing is utilized around areas on your roof such as vents or chimneys. The flashing is designed to keep moisture out. Over time, it can develop rust, which compromises its ability to prevent leaks. If you notice rust, or signs of separation, give us a call for expert repairs!
