Roof Repair Rules: When To Patch It, Fix It Or Repair It

It is worthwhile to get more life from an old roof. This goal can be achieved with solid information and awareness.

You should carefully examine the roof of your house or building that has been subject to extreme heat, rains, and hurricanes to determine what your best options are. KCG Roofing’ experts know that the proof is in your roof when it comes to roofing repairs. We recommend these guidelines to help you make a sound decision in Broward County or Palm Beach County, Florida.

Inspect Your Home Regularly. Regular inspections are the best way to avoid major repairs. It is important to know what damage can happen between inspections. Check the seals around chimneys, flashing, and vents after strong winds. Any crack in the roof can allow moisture to enter, which can cause mold and rot. To minimize damage, repairs should be done immediately.

Get to Know a Pro. It’s more difficult and stressful to find a reliable roofing company before your roof leaks and water is coming in than when it’s leaking and you have to do it. A company should be licensed by the state and properly insured, especially for worker’s comp. The Department of Business and Professional Regulation, (DBPR), and the Department of Financial Services have the ability to confirm the license and insurance status. KCG Roofing is a certified roofing company.

Make sure it is written. If you are required to hire a roofing company for repairs, ensure that the contract clearly outlines what is included and what is not. You shouldn’t assume that materials will be the same quality as the roof you have and that all debris will be removed by contractors. It is still a good idea to get it in writing.
