Roof Repair FAQs in Emory, TX
Strong winds blew some shingles off the roof. Can the damaged areas be patched up?
Most of the time your roofing contractor will be able to replace damaged or lost shingles caused by a hail or wind storm. The roofer will install new shingles, along with any necessary sheathing, gutters or underlayment. It's usually a quick and relatively inexpensive repair.
If the extent of the damage is quite severe, it may be worth exploring a shingle roof replacement, especially if the existing shingles are more than 10-15 years old. The average lifespan of a shingle roof is 10-17 years; in this case, replacing all of the shingles may be a more cost-effective option.
DIY roofing repairs vs. hiring a licensed roofing contractor
It’s never a good idea to fix your own leaky roof if you have no roofing experience. Even if you have some roofing experience, it’s always smart to call a roofing contractor to come take a look at the roof before trying to fix it yourself. The cost savings of a DIY job may be less than you think. Plus, doing your own DIY repair may void the warranty of the roof. These are all things to consider before tackling the repair job on your own.
