When you own a home, you may at some point have to deal with a roof repair. At Gilday Construction Group, our goal is to help make that process as smooth and painless as possible for you. When you understand the construction of a roof, you’ll know that there are more than a dozen components that might eventually need repair.
Our experts are trained in identifying exactly what is wrong with your roof and how to fix it in the most affordable and efficient way. Roof leaks, in particular, can often be taken care of with just a few simple adjustments. There are other times when more work is needed. Either way, we are the go-to roofing company in Middle TN and can help you diagnose the problem and determine the best way to fix it.
Roof repairs may be needed if a storm lifts some of the asphalt shingles on your roof. Another cause can be nails slowly coming out of the decking on your roof. These roof repairs are typically very affordable and shouldn’t be too expensive. Although, if the shingles were lifted by a storm, there is potential for wind damage and there may be a larger cost.
When a small number of shingles on a roof start to crack, roof repairs are often needed. This can be caused by the severe temperature changes we see in Tennessee during the summer and winter. When temperatures move 20 degrees or more, that can cause the shingles to expand and contract, leading to the need for roof repairs.
Another common roof repair is related to nails on your roof, especially on roofs that are older than 10 years. Over time, the nails on your roof can inch their way out of the plywood or roof decking and sustain rust or weathering. If this occurs, you may be able to have the nails on your roof repaired without having to replace the shingles on your residential roof. This is a labor-intensive activity, so the cost is really dependent on how many nails on the roof need to be repaired.
Poor flashing installation or siding/trim installation around a chimney can lead to roof leaks. These roofing repairs generally just require a few adjustments to the flashing, siding, or trim in order to stop the problem. When we inspect your roof we will check the chimney area to insure that we understand the issue. Then we make the proper adjustments to secure the roof and avoid any future leaks.
Flashing is a very common component of the roof that creates a need for repairs. Flashing is typically used in areas where the roof meets a vertical surface (i.e. siding, brick, etc.). When flashing pulls away from these surfaces, it can create places for water to leak into the house. Roof repairs to flashing are typically affordable, but it’s very important to have a contractor that understands how to properly install flashing.
