It's summertime in the Southeast, and we all know what that means; the rainy season is officially among us. With downpours and windstorms often come roof damage, and generally speaking, there's just no way around it. Any weather-related damage to your home or property can bring with it the stress and added burden of putting it all back together.

Not all roofs are built the same. No, that’s not a dig at your previous roofing contractor, I swear. Structurally speaking, each type of roof has its unique composition. A gable roof is built differently than a mansard roof, just as a saltbox roof is built differently from a butterfly roof, and so forth. You get the picture.

Roof replacement or roof repair?   This is a question many homeowners just like you end up asking their roofing contractor after we have done the inspection of the roof leak or damaged area.   The answer can depend on multiple factors. Your budget on hand, the extent of the damage, the condition and age of the existing roofing materials on your home. Figuring out which one to pick isn’t as easy as picking out fruit from your local grocery store. It requires some thought, careful planning, research and some faith in your contractor.   Your contractor of choice needs to be able to make a great repair and provide you with a warranty against any future leaks to the area that they will be repairing. This last part is the most important thing as it comes to protecting your home and your money. If we can not give you a good warranty for the repair then we will not offer that as a solution.
