Roof Repair FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Repair

Having a robust and long-lasting roof over your head is critical for the safety and well-being of your family, as well as the structural integrity of your house. Maintaining and caring for your roof should thus be one of your top concerns.

However, if you’ve had little experience with roofing or don’t know much about it, you’re bound to have some concerns regarding maintaining and keeping your home’s roof in good shape, and we’re here to assist and answer all of them!

Continue reading to see some of the most frequently asked roofing questions, as well as all of the maintenance and repair solutions!

All roofing specialists would normally advise against DIY roofing and performing any repairs on your own since it is unsafe, and you will almost always require the services of a professional roofer. So, if you want to save time, money, and prevent avoidable dangers, leave it to the specialists.

Furthermore, experienced roofing contractors have extensive training and are certified by the material manufacturer, so you qualify for manufacturer warranties, and  You won't obtain a warranty if the roof is fixed by someone who hasn't been trained or certified by the manufacturer.

For example, each roofing material has varied grades and pricing, as well as a wide range of forms and shapes. To be completely happy, you must examine the whole product line and make a decision depending on your budget and demands. The cost of roofing repair or new roof installation is determined by the pitch of your roof, the size of your roof or the roof area that requires repair, the materials used, the state of the roof, current market costs, the number of shingle layers, and the roofing contractor used. A free estimate is the best method to find out how much it will cost. Always keep in mind that your home's roof is an investment, so going for a short and cheap fix will almost always cost you more in the long term.

If your roof is quite old and has recurring issues, replacing it may be your best option. If you only have a little issue, a quick repair may work.

Older roofs or roofs with extensive problems and numerous leaks need to be replaced, but cracked, curling, broken, or missing shingles can be repaired to stop a leak.

Calling a roofing professional and getting a thorough roof inspection are the only ways to figure out what kind of roofing service is required.

A wide range of faults might jeopardise your roof system. Here are some of the most prevalent ones to keep an eye out for:

  • Is the roof leaking in several places?
  • Do leaks continue after many attempts to remediate them?
  • Do fixes tend to aggravate problems, or do new leaks appear following repairs?
  • Flashings that have deteriorated and loose seams
  • Shingles that are deteriorating, fractured, curling, missing, cracked, or absent
  • Interior drywall that is discoloured, stained or cracked
  • Ceiling stained with water leaks
  • Asphalt granule loss and found in gutters
  • Blistering or peeling paint
  • Siding decay
  • Increased energy bills
  • Chimney leaks

Every roof is unique, and every job is varied in size. Roof repairs often take a few hours, but the timeline will vary depending on the amount of damage.

Replacing a roof, whether on a commercial or residential structures is a labour intensive project.  Duration depends on the type of roof, job requirements and weather factor. However, careful planning and tight project management can mitigate some of the delays induced by inclement weather.

Once Proroofer's roofing inspector has evaluated the issues of your roof and given you a quote, you may ask for a precise schedule. A qualified contractor will be able to provide you an accurate time estimate for the project.

We normally do the work in a single day for most regular size homes with our skilled staff and certified roofers.

A roofing contractor should be fully insured and have Building Renovator License issued by the cities.  Make sure the roof contractor carries a valid WSIB and eligible to provide clearance certificates for validations.  All Proroofer's crew are full-time experienced workers with proper training to ensure the quality of the work.  Verify that the roofers who will be working on your roof are not using part-time employees to save costs. 

Inquire with the firm about the items they use and whether their materials and labour are warrantied.

Last but not least, a roofing contractor should clean up after themselves, complete on time, and fix any faults quickly.

We deploy a team of up to 16 professional roofers to do the task in a day based on the project needs, in contrast to others that send just 1-3 employees to the site and may take 2-3 days to complete the job...and pray for no rain.

The clean-up procedure does not begin once the roof is replaced; it occurs throughout the roofing operation. 95% of the ground should be clean once your new roof is built.

To dispose of the waste material, we carry our own unique garbage disposal trailer.  Our disposal trailer will not obstruct or harm your driveway. (There are several exceptions.)

Our fully trained team accomplishes this by having the majority of the crew rip off your old roof and install your new roof while the remainder of the crew stays on the ground, ensuring that all roofing debris is transported to the dump trailer. If your roof has just one layer and is at a walking angle, roofing debris may be transported across the roof and thrown into the dump trailer while the crew on the ground picks up any stragglers.

For more complex roofs, however, there will be a tarped landing zone where the roof workers will deposit the roofing debris. The ground workers will gather everything up with wheelbarrows to ensure that everything goes into the dump trailer.

Most modern roof systems are built to last anywhere from 20 to 50 years. Some roof system materials, such as slate, clay and concrete tile, and metal, have a longer lifespan.

Local climatic and environmental circumstances, correct building and roof system design, material quality and compatibility, right installation, and adequate roof care all contribute to actual roof system durability.

Manufacturers of roofing goods provide a range of warranties on their products. Before making any purchase, take a hard look over those warranties to see what duties and financial commitments manufacturers would bear if their items fail to live up to their intended lifespan.

We will not direct delivery and place heavy shingle skids on top of your roof to save cost since this can cause structural damage to your home.

A rubberized membrane that fits under shingles to prevent water penetration is what a roofing underlayment is. It is the one component of a roofing system that is specifically intended to be waterproof.

Water from wind-driven rain can permeate your roof covering without a self-adhered underlayment and seriously damage your roof—or, worse, the inside of your home. Non-adhered roofing underlayments usually solely give water shedding protection to the roof. Self-adhered underlayments are completely waterproof. Self-adhered membranes are secondary water barriers that protect your interior from water damage in the case of hurricane-force winds.  A wind storm is getting more popular in recent years within the Greater Toronto Area region.

Architectural roofing shingles are an improved version of the traditional 3-tab roofing shingles. Architectural roofing shingles have multiple layers, and each tab has a distinct form and size, creating a three-dimensional appearance. They are 50% heavier than typical 3-tab roofing shingles because they are substantially thicker. Architectural roofing shingles provide a longer guarantee against wind damage and a longer life expectancy than ordinary 3-tab roofing shingles.  Most homeowners choosing to replace their present roof will find just what they need in the architectural laminated shingle family.  These shingles are multi-layered or laminated, as opposed to ordinary 3-tab or strip shingles, which are single layer in form. They are gaining popularity.

Traditional shingles are also known as 3-tab or strip shingles. They are the oldest form of asphalt shingle still in use today.  The most affordable asphalt shingles are traditional 3-tab roofing shingles. Traditional 3-tab roofing shingles have one flat layer, and each tab has the same shape and size. They are not as thick as the other architectural roofing shingles available. Traditional 3-tab roofing shingles are lighter and lack a dimensional appearance. They do have lesser durability on wind resistance compared to architectural roofing shingles. 3-tab roofing shingles have a lifetime ranging from 13 to 20 years.

Not always. Leaks might occur as a consequence of loose flashings, a piece of the roof system being damaged, or a lack of an adequate ice and water protection. A total roof system failure, on the other hand, is usually irreversible and the consequence of incorrect installation, insufficient material selection, or an unsuitable roof system for the individual home or structure.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Optio, neque qui velit. Magni dolorum Roof system issues are often detected after leaks or other major damage occurs. Periodic (once a year) inspections can frequently reveal cracked, warped, or missing shingles and tiles, loose seams, degraded flashings, excessive surface granules gathering in gutters or downspouts, and other apparent symptoms of a damaged roof system. Indoor symptoms of damaged roof regions include chipped paint, discoloured plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper. In addition, inspect all trees growing near your house carefully since the branches can scratch or gouge the roof when driven by the wind, and the collection of leaves and debris can also hold moisture and create rot.quidem ipsam eligendi, totam, facilis laudantium cum accusamus ullam voluptatibus commodi numquam, error, est. Ea, consequatur.

Sloped roof coverings can shift and rise as a result of wind-driven rain. Rain can therefore readily slip beneath the roof covering and right onto the uncovered roof deck, causing leaks and damage to the home's inside.

Gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The frequency with which you must clean your gutters is determined by the kind and placement of trees surrounding your property, as well as the condition of your gutter system.
