Roof Repair costs vary and have to be assessed on case-by-case bases. However, most roof repairs are basic and straightforward and cost less than $600. To make it easier to understand we typically classify roof repairs as minor, moderate, or major roof repairs. The cost range is between $300 to over $1,500. Usually for most homes, when the repair cost rises above the $3,500 range it makes sense to start discussing and considering a full roof replacement.

The process to get your roof repaired is too easy, and the consequences and cost of ignoring the problem are too great, for you not to take action and get that roof fixed. Once we have inspected the issue we will be able to provide you with the best solution to fix the issue. In some cases, like just a few missing shingles, we can make the roof repair on the spot. Other times, we may need to order a specific roofing material. Depending on what you tell us over the phone, sometimes we ask homeowners to text us pictures or send a quick video. This helps us be even more prepared with a solution when we arrive. We can also give you a ballpark idea of what we think the repair may cost. Small problems can turn big. That is why we have made our roof repair process simple and Streamlined.

Although roof leaks can manifest in many ways, and some are very hard to track down, most of the roofing leaks we find after inspection are traced back to 5 areas. Below is an overview of the most common sources of roof leaking.
Almost always, missing or damaged shingles will cause roof leaks. Missing shingles are usually a result of high winds or improperly nailed shingles. Damaged shingles can be caused by flying debris, hail damage, and tree branches rubbing the shingles. Another overlooked cause of shingle damage is human foot traffic caused by walking on the roof.
Leaking chimneys are often the culprit when your roof is leaking. Most chimney leaks can be traced back to three areas. First is the flashing around the base of the chimney. Second is the siding and trim or the grout joints if the chimney is brick or stone masonry. The third area is the metal chimney cap and chase cover, or the mortar cap on masonry chimneys.
One of the most common causes of roof leaks is pipe boots. Unfortunately, many roofs have low-quality pipe boots that use a rubber collar to make the seal. The problem is this rubber is very subject to UV degradation. It's not uncommon for these pipe boots to fail in 5-7 years. This is why we always recommend high-quality lead pipe jack boots.
Roof vents and skylights in your roof also can be sources of leaking. Although fixed static roof vents, like box and turtle vents, don't leak often it does happen. It's more common for a roof ventilation leak to happen when a roof turbine is blown off the house in high winds. Skylight leaks typically happen when the seals fail, or there is cracking over time on plastic skylight covers. Sometimes it actually is the flashing around the skylight that is found to be the source of the leak.
Sidewall flashing requires that step flashing and counter flashing be installed properly to ensure you have no leaking. However, even when installed correctly the caulking along the top of the counterflashing can degrade over time. Also, the nails or holes in the step flashing can allow water to find a way in. Roof Valley's can be a source of leaks as well. In fact, some roofs are installed with no flashing in the valley and solely rely on gravity to quickly drain the water from the roof so no leaking happens.

The most common roof repairs include:
Deciding if you should repair or replace your roof is determined by many various factors. Making the choice to repair or replace your roof first starts with a detailed roof inspection. After the roof assessment, you will be able to make an informed decision between a roof repair or replacement.
Roof repairs can be tricky, however, in our experience, a quality roof repair will range from $350 to $2,500. It goes without saying that as the cost goes up, it becomes more reasonable to just replace the entire roof.
To find a roof leak you need to hire a Parker County roofing expert like our team! All jokes aside, it can be tough. It requires a very detailed inspection. Sometimes we need access to the attic to find the roof leak. In other cases, we have to remove shingles from the roof in the suspected area to inspect the decking. Extreme cases may even require that we remove drywall from inside the house to find the exact source.
Different types of roof repairs will last for different amounts of time. If you have missing shingles that need to be replaced, those may last 10-20 years or more based on the quality of the type of shingle. If you have damaged metal flashing that is replaced, it can last 50 or more years (longer than the rest of the roof). In all cases, when you have a roof repair done, it should last as long as the rest of the roof’s remaining service life.
Tough question! If you have to ask, then the answer is probably no. It takes knowledge and skills to complete a roof repair that most homeowners just don’t have.
The most common places for roof leaks to happen are:
Yes, if the leak is caused by a storm-related opening or other covered peril. It might not be covered if the leak is found to be caused by normal wear and tear or lack of maintenance.
