Emergency Roofing Repair
You need emergency roofing repair on the scene fast, on your roof covering the damage quickly, and on top of the process of dealing with your insurance company. This is our commitment, whether your emergency is wind damage, leaks, hail damage, or fire aftermath.
Rapid Response to Repairs
We understand getting the tarp off, and a new protective roof or watertight repair finished is priority one. The experience and skill of our installers ensure the work is completed efficiently. Plus, it’s done right the first time, so there are no delays for “fixes.”
Your initial consultation and estimate cost nothing.
Factors affecting the emergency roof repair cost include:
- How many shingles or tiles will have to be taken off?
- What condition is the decking underneath? Might it need to be replaced? In cases of fire, it’s almost assured.
- Is there any damage to the decking that will need repair?
- Do you need insulation replaced?
- Is there wet wood framing?
- Is there damage around chimneys, turbines, vents, skylights, or other structures? (Most often caused when the sheet metal flashing is compromised and must be replaced as part of emergency roof repair).
- How large is the roof being replaced or the area being repaired? Exact measurements will be calculated.
Insurance and reimbursement
You and your claims adjuster require a detailed estimate in a timely manner. When the work is completed to your satisfaction, we provide the documentation of the emergency roof repair you required. This is when your insurer will issue the final check. More often than not, you have a new roof and may pay only your deductible.
How Extensive is the Damage?
After a storm, call us to check the condition of the surface. We will get up on the rooftop and check every square foot. We will look for things like loose or missing shingles. The protective gravel that coats asphalt installations can be sheared off on impact. A sure sign is if you see a pile of grit at the end of downspouts or in the gutters. We will investigate. Let us check for security of the metal flashing around the edges to make sure water does not get inside. We will also see if tiles or slates are cracked, or metal panels are bent back. Then we will perform the expert roof repair that best suits your situation.
Roof Leak Repair
Roof leak repair will prevent expensive water damage to your home. While leaks are not inevitable, they are not unusual, either. It’s vital to spot leaks early. Once you see the signs of a leak, or if you suspect a problem, you should call us promptly. Consumer experts agree: the cost of fixing the interior damage is far more than the cost of restoring the protection of your roof.
Some people are concerned that once a roofing contractor discovers a problem, the next step has to be replacing their entire roof. In fact, many roof leaks and imperfections can be professionally mended.
Your inspection and estimate for roof leak repair will be handled personally by the founder and owner of our family business, and he personally inspects and supervises the work.
By the time you spot a leak, it may be too late
A ceiling stain indoors certainly points to a leaking roof, although air conditioning and plumbing may also be the culprit. By the time the stain appears, roof decking, insulation, and sheetrock may be saturated. This is one of the costliest parts of extensive roof repair – not the roof itself!
Flashing is a common cause of leaks and can be fixed by our professionals
- Flashing is most often found around sewer vents, flue pipes, skylights, and joints. It’s most often sheet metal and has been installed at any break in a shingled roofline specifically to PREVENT leaks.
- High winds – especially our annual tropical and hurricane force winds – can cause the flashing to work loose.
- Another reason for this particular roof leak repair is that your roof expands and contracts as the seasons’ change, causing the flashing to loosen. If a corner or an inch has separated from the surface, it stops preventing leaks and becomes the cause of one. Most do-it-yourself repair experts warn that repairing flashing properly is best left to a roofing expert.
Of course, wind damage and age are other major causes of leaking roofs.
About free estimates
We come to your home or business, measure and assess, and provide a free estimate. Consumer protection experts advise you never to accept a roof leak repair estimate by telephone, without ever having seen your house. That may seem like no-brainer advice; a contractor must see what’s leaking and how bad the damage is before giving you an honest price. But the vast majority of roofing complaints involve these kinds of telephone contractors.

Any kind of leak must be stopped immediately or it will cause extensive damage. Once water gets a toe-hold under your shingles, it will follow the same path again and again. Moisture under the surface can lead to rotting of decking or other building materials, and that is a very expensive problem. It might cause mildew to grow on the surface, which holds wetness against the shingles. It can also lead to the formation of fungus on building materials within your home. Mold can release toxins into your air conditioning system, making you and your family susceptible to illness. Don’t risk the security of your biggest investment – your house.
