Utah Roofing Repair

If your roof is not leaking now but you are concerned because you see signs of wear, you can take this quiz to help determine if you even need a new roof or might be able to squeeze a few more years out of your existing roof. Are patches of your shingle roof damaged by a storm? Are the edges of your shingles curling up? Is there a loose seam in a metal panel? Is water pooling on your flat roof?

All of our estimators are salaried employees of Fortress Roofing. They are highly trained roofing experts whose job description is to perform a thorough 21 Point Tip Top Roof Inspection, make a detailed recommendation that is in your best interest and give that recommendation to you in writing.

The Fortress Roofing Repair & Restoration Philosophy

When it comes to professional roof repairs we have experienced so called “roofing repairs” from other roofers who simply caulked or sealed problem areas. In our opinion this is like putting a Band-Aid on a broken arm. It’s just not right.

We will open and expose each repair area to determine the condition of the decking base, flashing condition and membrane wear. Then, just like installing a new roof in those areas we systematically rebuild the area using new materials. This is also a great time to consider a whole roof restoration if there are multiple issues.

You can see some of the Key Danger Signals of a needed repair here:

Key Danger Signals.

Leakage in attic after wind-driven rain

Possible cause: Leaky or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing

Leakage in attic after ice build-up

Possible cause: Inadequate shingle underlayment allows water from ice dams to leak into attic

Blistering and/or peeling of interior and/or exterior paint

Possible cause: Excessive temperature or high humidity due to poor attic ventilation

Stains on interior ceilings and walls or mold and mildew growth

Possible cause: Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage or inadequate ventilation

Decay of roof shingles, sheathing, and/or siding

Possible cause: Poor attic ventilation

 

Missing, cracked or curled shingles

Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life

Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof

Possible cause: Environmental pollutants; vegetation, fungus or algae; loss of granules due to age of shingles

 

Excessive energy costs

Possible cause: Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating/cooling system to run excessively

In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic, causing air conditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home’s interior hotter and less comfortable.

Attic Ventilation: In both hot and cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness. Excessive energy costs can result.
