Residential Roof Repair
Tulsa Roof Repair Contractors
Roof leaks can be caused by many different factors. Storm damage, hail, falling tree limbs, people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles are a just a few examples. However, most roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. Flashing is found near any roof penetration area such as chimneys, steps, aprons and in valley areas where roof angles converge. It is necessary to inspect your roof for all types of damage. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to erode over time.
Roof Repair Problems
Poor installation of roof shingles, which are sometimes nailed incorrectly, may also need to be addressed. If roof shingles are missing, these will need to be replaced.
Clogged gutters are a cause of roofing problems. Water may overflow out of the gutter and leak along the walls, into your home. Also, flue pipes inside of a chimney can cause water to leak if they are not properly aligned.
Residential roofers in Tulsa must register with the Oklahoma Construction Industries Board (CIB) annually, have $500,000 in general liability insurance, and workers’ compensation coverage. A dependable roofer should willingly provide their state registration number and copies of their insurance certificates so you know they’ve met the state’s requirements, and have coverage to protect you against damage to your home and on-the-job employee injuries.
To lessen the risk of workmanship and warranty issues after your roof repair, look for a well-established contractor with a good reputation in the area. A roofer who’s been in business here for many years should have numerous satisfied customers who you can contact for references and a variety of completed jobs that you can view. A reputable contractor will also have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and positive online reviews.
Certification from the industry’s top manufacturers is a good indicator of the skill and professionalism of a roofer. One example is Owens Corning’s Platinum Preferred Contractor status that’s given to contractors who excel in customer service, workmanship, and ongoing training. Roofers who care about providing outstanding service to their customers want to stay current on the latest industry developments and best practices, so they’re also affiliated with leading trade organizations like the National Roofing Contractors Association.
