Discolored Roof Needing Repair

Roof Repair

Roof Repair

In many cases, a roof repair is preferable to a roof replacement. Naturally, one significant benefit is the potential savings (financially and time-wise) derived from identifying the root causes of the roofing challenges and employing cost-effective (but permanent) solutions. A repair can meaningfully extend an existing roof’s lifespan.
At Sutryk & Son, we take the responsibility of repairing commercial and residential roofing seriously. It is not an area in which we dabble. “Minor” repairs deserve purposeful attention before they mushroom into “major” headaches or inconveniences. Working with us ensures that your roof receives our top priority and consideration.

If you own a home or business, you understand the critical role that your roof plays in your building or structure’s overall security. A leaky (or otherwise faulty) roof creates a cascade of issues that can result in a catastrophic loss. Proactively addressing a problematic roof requires considering all options – including roof repair. 

Residential Roof Repair Services

Your home is your castle. Keep it that way with timely roof repairs that add years of life to your current roof. At Sutryk & Son, we know residential roof repairs. We work with homeowners to address a myriad of roofing issues, including, but not limited to, the following concerns:

Not all roofing installations are created equal. Many roofers will cut corners to finish a roofing project quickly. Others (for lack of training, knowledge, or experience) don’t know the intricacies of completing a roofing project expertly. Unfortunately, the homeowner reaps the adverse consequences of this shoddy effort. The homeowner often won’t know of the issue for several years when they observe a leaking roof or other performance inefficiencies. A reputable roofing contractor will recognize how to identify problems correctly and perform repairs effectively.

Poor indoor air quality and insufficient air circulation produce a stuffy atmosphere. Unfortunately, this environment becomes ripe for interior mold and mildew formation. Heating and cooling consumption also increases dramatically when a house lacks quality ventilation. Consequently, energy-related utility bills will also rise significantly. Avoid this hapless outcome. Ensure adequate ventilation by addressing venting at the roof level. Assessing the condition of existing ventilation systems and making any necessary repairs can dramatically reduce airflow issues.

The most common roofing concern for homeowners is leaking. Most homeowners will not take action to address a failing roof until they observe signs of interior moisture intrusion. For example, homeowners suddenly act if they see water spots on their ceiling or mold spores along their walls, realizing something is amiss. To correctly identify the root cause of a roof leak, a thorough inspection and analysis of the roofing system becomes necessary. Don’t leave this critical task to a novice. Choose a highly experienced roofing contractor, like Sutryk & Son.

Blistering. Splitting. Lifting. Missing. Shrinking. These issues and others (like granule loss) require addressing before other challenges arise or worsen. Assessing which shingles or tiles need repair or replacement can become an involved project. However, a highly trained and experienced roofing professional will utilize the appropriate tools and methods to spot problem shingles or tiles and develop a suitable remedy. This prompt action can save a homeowner thousands of dollars in additional repairs (or roof replacement (or even remediation expenses)).

Commercial Roof Repair Services

For industrial, retail, or commercial building owners or property managers, Sutryk & Son offers unmatched roof repair services. We assess problem areas and provide solutions that preserve your building and extend the life of your existing roof. For example, flat roofs often incur issues such as ponding. We understand why these problems arise and what corresponding steps will resolve them.

Whether your roof is manufactured from TPO, PVC, EPDM, metal, or rubber, we have the expertise to provide skilled craftsmanship that restores it (and will yield substantial savings to your business’s bottom line). Why risk involving a roofing company lacking extensive commercial roof repair experience when Sutryk & Son offers the broadest range of flat and low-slope roofing services anywhere?

How To Choose A Roof Repair Contractor

A homeowner or business owner may have no idea where to begin when searching for a professional to perform a roof repair. Should they contact a handyman? Will just any roofing contractor work? Or do they need to narrow down their search to a specific set of criteria? Consider the following critical factors when evaluating who to hire for a roof repair:

All roofing companies replace roofs. Few perform roof repairs with any regularity. It’s not that they cannot. For many roofing contractors, roof repairs are not “profitable.” So, they won’t do that work. Identifying one who truly invests in wanting to repair roofs can be challenging. However, ask the prospective roofer regarding their experience in repair.

Each state has requirements for contractors to hold a license. Many states also have conditions for contractors specializing in roofing. Additionally, local jurisdictions (counties, cities, and municipalities) may impose specific licensure terms. You have every right to request proof of any licensing possessed by the contractor under consideration.

Whether you regularly use Google or not, Google Reviews stands apart from the other search engine-based reviewing sites. Scrutinize what homeowners have to say regarding the roofing contractor. Other recommended sites include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), Nextdoor, Angi (formerly Angie’s List), Thumbtack, Facebook/Meta Business, and HomeAdvisor. 

Never work with a roofing contractor that lacks sufficient insurance. The roofing industry contains many inherent dangers. When a roofer doesn’t hold worker’s compensation or liability insurance, you (as the homeowner or business owner) increase your personal liability substantially in case of an accident or other casualty incident on your property.

A roofing company with knowledge and experience in roof repair can identify problematic areas and provide a reasonable ballpark bid. They understand how much time and labor will be needed to complete the work. They have a firm idea of the cost of materials to fulfill the assignment. Ask them to line item and specifically detail what repairs will be needed.

Many local municipalities require one or more permits to be pulled for particular roofing work. Understand what may be involved in your area as far as obtaining permits. Avoid hiring a roofing contractor who insists that permits aren’t necessary (or one who claims they can work around securing a permit because it is “just” a repair). Stick by the book.

Roof Repair FAQs

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The price of a roof repair depends on numerous crucial factors. However, a reputable roofing company will provide a no-obligation written estimate before undertaking any repair work. If you need an additional bid or two to compare pricing, you should pursue that objective to assist with making an informed decision. Most “basic” residential or commercial roof repairs will cost a few hundred dollars on average. But avoid the quick fix.

Unfortunately, most insurance providers do not cover the cost of a roof repair. Exceptions apply, however. The insurance company could indemnify a roof repair if the reason for the roof damage is an insured peril. For example, if a thunderstorm causes repairable damage to the roof, a homeowner could submit a claim. Be careful, though. Most policies have a deductible. Filing a claim makes sense if the roof repair cost is substantially more than the deductible and the insurance provider covers it.

No two roofs are the same. No two problems are identical. Generally, a “minor” roof repair will take a few hours. A “major” roof repair could stretch over multiple days. The recommended course of action is to meet with a reputable roofing company for a free estimate. During that evaluation process, ask the contractor for an idea of how much time the repair will take. Most often, contractors have flexibility in their schedules to accommodate your availability (which you should plan to be around).
