There are a lot of different pieces that go into making a functional roof. One fairly obvious one is the shingles that line the top of most roofs (unless yours is metal or a number of other materials). Sometimes, then, you will need to undertake some shingle repair in order to make sure things are running as they should.
Pros Needed for Shingle Repair Jobs
“For homeowners, a roof that is in need of maintenance or repairs can be an intimidating prospect.” As with any roofing project, you should never bite off more than you can chew both financially and safety-wise.
To begin, you need to have a solid idea of how much it will cost to get any shingle repair projects done. This will vary depending on a lot of factors, such as how old the shingles are, if you’ve ever had them cleaned and/or maintained, and what kind of damage has been done to them. As a general rule, assume that it’s possible for the cost to be “anywhere from a couple hundred to several thousand dollars.” This may not be reassuring, given how wide a range it is, but that is all the more reason to opt for a roofer that offers free estimates.
As far as the extent of the damage, it’s hard for anyone to say how much of your roof would need to be replaced until he or she has seen it for themselves. A simple description of the situation may not be enough for a solid estimate, particularly if that description came from a “layperson.” Get a pro over to your place as soon as you can so that they can give you an accurate assessment of what needs to be done.
The timing of the shingle repair job depends, again, on your individual situation. Smaller patches of damage may be attended to in days, while larger conditions may need a lot longer to fully remedy. Put simply, each case has to be evaluated separately, and though contractors can and will use their past experiences as a basis, the bottom line will be one all your own.
To avoid frequent shingle repair entirely, you should look into best practices for keeping them sturdy, safe, and dry.
