When Roof Damage Has Occurred

The type and extent of damage, as well as the type of roofing system involved, determine what repairs are necessary.

The first step is a thorough roof inspection. No company can repair your roof properly without first conducting a roof inspection. The inspection will identify the actual cause of the leak, as well as all associated damage. There is no point in fixing a leak without repairing the damage that has occurred.

The inspection encompasses the entire roofing surface, flashings, gutters, vents, drains, and all other roofing components. Depending on the roofing system and type of damage found, an examination of your decking and sub-roofing components may be appropriate.

Once the inspection is completed, we generate a written report, reflecting our findings and including photos of any damage found.

We also include solutions. In many cases, a repair service is sufficient to address the roof damage. However, if the damage is more extensive or the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, we may recommend a restoration or replacement as a more cost-effective solution.

Regardless of the solution you choose, you can trust the craftsmen at Smith Residential & Commercial Roofing for high-quality results.
