Client Testimonials

5 stars

Great company and customer service. Sam responded quickly and repaired my roof timely. He listened to me and inspected the roof to determine the problem and got to work! Everything was cleaned up when the project was completed. I highly recommend this company.

JOANNE SCHMIDT

These guys are incredibly responsive and communicate well. Fastest response I?ve ever received from a contractor. They return calls and keep you updated ever step of the way. Did a great job explaining what my roof needed and how they could repair it. I?m very impressed with this company.

DAVID CASAL

5 stars

I had a leak in my roof and it was difficult to find someone to repair it because I have a very large 3 story double block with a slate roof. I found these guys and they responded to me very quickly and had it repaired within 2 days at a reasonable cost. They were very professional and did quality work. I would highly recommend using them for your roofing needs.

12 Common Causes of Roof Failure

1. Poor Diagnostics

Shortcuts and misdiagnosis are the number one cause for roof failure. While many are eager to get a quick estimate, especially unqualified contractors who just want the job, getting an accurate and complete analysis of your roof is where The Roof Repair Guys take repair to the next level.

2. Missing Shingles/Wind Damage

Poorly installed shingles can fall victim to gravity or gusts of wind and tear free, ultimately weakening the roof system’s potential to perform. But, even more, replacing those shingles must be done properly to prevent future blow off or leaking.

3. Poor Ventilation

Poor ventilation causes subpar weather resistance and temperature control. This can cause ice damns to back up under shingles, mold and/or condensation to grow in attics, or will simply add dollars to your utility bill. Left unchecked these factors can lead serious damage in the home.

4. Poor Drainage

Rain gutters and drains are meant to control the flow of rain water and direct it to safe locations. Blockages in that system can lead to excesses of water going to undesirable places ultimately leading to roof damage or even the infiltration of rain water.

 

5. Shingle damage / Punctures

Nature can be harsh. The elements and even squirrels, those persistant little animals, can cause damage to the protective barriers of your home. Even temperature fluctuations can cause a constant rise and fall in the roof materials, causing punctures in the roof system.

 

6. Satellite Dishes, Antennas and Lightning Rods

Usually mounted to the roof causing unavoidable holes in the roof system, may make living more comfortable, safe, and enjoyable, but they need extra care and attention. Water sealants are used to prevent the infiltration of water, but poor application, and/or substandard or incorrect materials can lead to eventual failure and roof leaks.

7. Chimneys

Chimneys have two potential weaknesses. 1.) Where they pass through the roof system. They must be flashed with front flashing, step flashing, and back flashing (a cricket), and then that flashing must be counter flashed. 2.) Chimneys usually consist of masonry materials which has mortar joints that wear thin over time. Maintenance of these individual parts is essential in preventing leaks for the life of your roof.

8. Skylights

There’s only two kinds of skylights: the ones that leak, and the ones that don’t. Extreme differences in temperature through so thin a barrier needs extra counter measures to ensure sufficient installation. Many contractors fail to meet the necessary requirements in this area, leading to skylights becoming one of the most common areas for unwanted, water infiltration into the home.

 

9. Pipes and Vents

Cutting a hole into the middle of perfectly good roof is sure to lead to potential trouble spots. Pipe boots and roof vents are designed to divert water around these holes, but it is heart breakingly common for them to be installed incorrectly. Then poor repair companies cake the roof with cement or caulking to overcompensate. Unfortunately roof cement and caulking are not intended for that repair and fail often.

 

10. Valleys

Valleys naturally occur where two planes of a roof surface intersect. They are gathering points for virtually all rain, snow and ice that falls over the area of a roof. This abundance of water combined with the lower roof angle that occurs in all valleys, guarantees that even the simplest of mistakes, or even the smallest downgrade in the quality of materials, can cause water to gush into a home during a storm.

 

11. Dormers

Dormers really jazz up the look of a home, as well as add some space and light to the inside, but they are completely surrounded by potential leak points. They suffer all the challenges of a chimney with additional valleys and flashings for potential leaks. Dormers are one the most common locations for leaks to occur in Pennsylvania.

12. Step Flashing

Anywhere a vertical surface protrudes up from a roof, you need to use step flashing. It is common for inexperienced roofers to cheat in these areas or even install them incorrectly, which is sure to lead to inevitable leaks. No substitute is sufficient. Without step flashing water only needs to back up under the shingles slightly in order to find its way against the wall, and under the shingles. You’ll find step flashing around chimneys, dormers, and gable walls anytime they are sealed properly.

We examine both the interior and exterior with our full diagnostics system. Once we identify the leak, we go the extra mile to investigate its potential damage spread, and repair it all, stopping your leak and future related leaks.

Tarping

REGULAR MAINTENANCE

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” –¬†Benjamin Franklin

The Roof Repair Truths

Reasons to simply repair

  1. Perhaps your roof is approaching the end of it’s lifespan.
  2. Maybe it isn’t that old and is leaking prematurely.
  3. Or maybe your roof was just downright installed incorrectly.
  4. No matter what the case, we can help!

The only reason to replace is because your roof is beyond repair. We can help you decide to repair or replace your roof, examining all the options.

The truth??

If you’re like most of us, then you probably haven’t been setting money aside to cover the cost of a new roof. The truth is that the right guys with the right tools and know-how can properly fix almost any roof leak for a fraction of the cost of replacement, and more-over, those same guys posses the potential to exponentially extend the life of a roof.
