We Do Insurance Claims
Take the uncertainty and hassle out of filing a roof repair claim. Call your insurer after a storm, and then call us. We will meet with your adjuster to ensure he or she doesn’t miss a thing, and we will make sure all of your paperwork is in order before you send it in.
All Roof Types
Whether you have a new roof or an older one, it can be vulnerable to aging and bad weather. We can do the proper repairs needed to make it safe and weatherproof again.
Asphalt shingle - While today's composition shingles are stronger than ever, they can be torn off by high winds. This is especially true if your roof installation was not done correctly the first time. Hail can also knock off the protective granules that coat your shingles. The process is called degranulation and it leads to a weaker base mat.
Slate roofs - While these are sturdy, they are also brittle. Slate roof repair is needed if the surface is cracked or broken by large hailstones or windborne objects. The slates can also be cracked just by walking on them carelessly.
Cedar shakes and shingles – While these are strong enough to handle hail and impact, they can split or degrade over time. We can do partial cedar roof replacement as well as repairs.
Standing seam metal - Metal can be pitted by hailstones. While these are sometimes a cosmetic issue, the dimples can hold water or the edges can get dented. Fasteners can also work loose, allowing water to get to the underside. Call us for your toughest metal roof repair jobs.
Flat roofing - If you have a low-sloped covering on your home or building, call us for a fast, free evaluation. Water that sits on low-sloped surfaces can damage materials. Sunlight shining through the standing water magnifies this effect. We can correct ponding problems on single or multi-ply materials, add a protective coating or apply an energy-efficient reflective surface.
Not Just a Surface Fix
When you call our residential and commercial roof repair service, you will not just get a patch-and-go job. We will examine all parts that make roofing protective: the flashing that surrounds edges and reinforces walls and valleys; the ventilation that keeps temperatures even; as well as repair or replacement of all gutter types. We also handle repair and replacement of siding: vinyl, metal and fiber cement.
Roof Repair vs. Roofing Replacement
Your rooftop is designed to protect your home and family from the effects of weather. The last thing you want to do is allow water to get in. Very often, roof repair will do, and we will recommend the right type of fix. But if more than a quarter of it has sustained water damage, we might recommend a full roof replacement. As a reputable company that cares about its customers, 1st Source will always give you a written estimate, explain the extent of the damage and leave the final decision up to you. You will not be fast-tracked into replacing a rooftop that just needs a little TLC.
