Denton Roofing Repair Experts

Roofing repairs can be an inconvenience, but a roofing emergency can cause be horrific. Before repairs go too far, give the Denton TX experts a call.

Roofing concerns can sometimes fall under the rug for homeowners unless there is a visible leak to contend with. This issue with that is there is every likelihood that what you are not seeing is causing more damage than a traditional leak.

If there are any visible signs of damage to the roof, it should be inspected as soon as possible. Roof repairs do not always show themselves right away, but the problems that can cause is not worth waiting. Keeping some signals that point to repairs in mind, will help you spot them more easily.

Signs You Need Roof Repair

Being able to spot roof repairs early can save the homeowner a lot of trouble and money on repair costs. Some of the signs of trouble are not as apparent as water pooling in the livingroom. When a homeowner knows what to look forward, they are able to avoid the worst of the damage that will occur.

Here are some signs you need roof repair:

  • Leaks: Though this may be an obvious one, leaks coming from the ceiling are not a good sign and should be repaired immediately.
  • Visible Damage: Any visible signs of damage to the roof such as bowing, missing shingles, or cracked flashing around the chimney is signs you need to contact a professional.
  • Increased Energy Costs: Leaks in the roof may not always show water dripping, but they can show an increase in heating and cooling costs as the air is escaping through any holes or cracks.
  • Ceiling Damage: Water stains on the ceiling, or bowing ceiling tiles, is a good sign there is an issue on the roof.
  • Exterior Paint: When the roof has damage or is not isolated correctly, the moisture can build up behind the walls near the edge of the roof. Peeling paint, especially on the fascia board, is an indicator of repair.

Choosing Your Roofing Material

If it is time to replace the roof, homeowners can become very overwhelmed with the number of choices. The right material depends on the location, climate, and personal taste of the homeowner. Roofing materials can also vary in things like durability, maintenance, and cost.

Here are the most common types of roofing available:

  • Shingles: Shingles, which are mand of asphalt, is the most common type of roofing material. The durability is good if it is well-maintained. It is also the most cost-efficient option.
  • Metal: metal roofing is great for reflecting light and keeping the interior of the home cool. It is very durable, yet heavy. It also has the potential to rust and depending on the type of metal, it can be quite costly.
  • Wood: Wooden roofs more popular a century ago, yet they are still used today. Wood comes in a wide verity and is durable if it is treated. Like metal, it can be expensive depending on the type of wood.
  • Clay Tiles: Claying tiling is an attractive option due to its aesthetics. Though it is very durable for the elements, it breaks easily when debris hits the roof. It is also heavy and is costly to install.
  • Slate: Slate is an extremely durable option that can last up to a century. It is great for energy-efficiency and keeping the elements out. On the other hand, it is very heavy and the most expensive option.
