Shingle Roof Repair
Failing to handle your shingle roof repair in a timely manner can lead to big problems. As weather conditions from the heat of a Georgia summer to the arctic winter blasts that sweep down to beat away at the failed section, moisture seeps in, causing even more deterioration to surrounding shingles and the under layer. What was once an inexpensive repair can become a costly headache. Ignoring the fact that your shingle roof has reached its lifespan might seem a thrifty alternative at the time but can quickly turn into hours of calls, damage control, and possibly documenting roofing insurance claims.
Torn shingles often go unnoticed for long periods of time, a situation that can lead to compound problems. As rainwater and snow and ice melts work its way into the tear or crack, the shingle lifts and flashing deterioration escalates. The roof, including structural supports, becomes a sponge that attracts mold and/or insects. Structural damage soon follows.
A good roof is a strong selling point. Home buyers and their potential insurers pay close attention to roof condition. A well maintained roof gives you the edge when facing competition in a tough real estate market. For many policyholders, upgrading the roof also means lower insurance rates.
