Denver Roofing Repair

When you find a leak in your roof, a lot of questions will run through your mind: Will I have to replace the roof? Who do I call? Can I fix it myself? How much do roofing repairs cost? Or, most frightening: What if this isn’t the only roof leak? One of a Denver homeowner’s worst fears is realizing that their roof has leaked so much that it has infiltrated the interior of the home and caused excessive damage. Roof replacements alone cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the water damage that must be fixed as well. Repairing the small issues with your roof now can actually save you a lot of money and allow you to get the full use out of your roof.

When to Repair Your Roof

Before you get stressed, the leak you found most likely is not worthy of a roof replacement. Especially if your roof is relatively young, repairs are often the best way to go to extend the life of your roof. However, if you consistently find leaks or have bad storm damage, there might not be much to do other than a full replacement. In this case, a roofing expert will be able to give you the best recommendation for your situation. Is a roof repair or replacement necessary?

Your Denver roof gets put through a lot – storms, extreme heat, heavy snows, and excessive winds. With that being said, depending on where you live, roof damage can be frequent. If you find that your roof is missing a shingle or notice a broken shingle, this is reason to get a roofing repair made. When professional cleanings do not seem to clean certain shingles, those might need to be switched out with newer shingles as well. For some minimal storm damage, repair is still an option (although we highly recommend asking a professional in this case). As long as the structural integrity of the roof has not been completely compromised, a professional roofing repair company should be able to patch the damaged section without a complete replacement. In an emergency, temporary repairs can be made to protect the home until a full roof replacement can be scheduled in the following weeks.

Neglected Roofing Repairs

A lot can happen to a home without fixing a damaged roof. In the short term, you will deal with ongoing leaks, a hike in energy bills, insects, and even the beginnings of mold when you put off repairs. In the long term, you can expect a lot worse effects. Severe water damage will be seen throughout your home, starting with molded insulation, a caving in roof, and soft walls. Those living at the home will experience headaches as they are consistently exposed to mold, and the structural integrity of your home will never be the same (unless you are ready to shell out thousands more dollars in extra repairs). This might seem a bit extreme, but it is an all too real description of what will happen to your home in Denver without repairs.

When shingles are left too long without roof repairs, water is able to sink into the roof decking and saturate it. From there, water damage is able to make its way from the attic down through your home. A dripping roof not only decreases property value, but also creates a dangerous situation for anyone living in the home. As more and more water is able to sink into the layers of the roof, the potential for it to collapse is increased (and even more so when snow and ice are added in the winter months). The longer you wait to get your roof repaired, the more expensive it will be to fix. A simple, small leak could turn into a large section of shingles that need to be replaced, along with the underlying decking.
