Frequently Asked Roof Repair Questions

“We just had a big storm. Should I check my roof for damage?”

At K.L. SMITH INC ROOFING EXPERTS, we advise against any homeowner going up on a roof. Even a low-pitched roof can be a slippery, dangerous place. The best thing to do is to contact us for a FREE roof inspection.

“I’ll just take a peek from the ground or an extension ladder. What should I look for?”

Look for these signs of Storm Damage:
Blunt impact damage from tree branches or wind-tossed debris hitting the roof
Dimpling and cracks from hail
Uplift, torn or raised shingles from winds
Missing or loose shingles, especially along a roof edge
Displaced flashing or drip edge

You can also scope out the need for shingle roof repair after a storm by examining the underside of your roof, from your attic.

Look for indications of Water Infiltration:
Damp insulation
Water spots
Blackened or darkened wood on sheathing or rafters
Damaged rooftop ventilators
Dripping water around chimneys, sanitary stacks and other roof penetrations

“I have stains on my ceiling and wall. Does that mean I have a leaky roof?”

Shingle roofs are water resistant, not watertight. Shingles may be damaged or missing, or you may have failed underlayment. Contact K.L. Smith today for a free, no-obligation roof inspection to determine whether you need a roof repair.

“How can I make my roof last longer before I need to make major repairs?”

Regular inspections and maintenance can reveal if you have roof damage before it becomes a massive problem. Sometimes a relatively simple roof repair now will save you thousands down the road. K.L. SMITH ROOFING EXPERTS stand ready to assist you. When you contact us, we’ll work with you to determine your needs and give you an accurate estimate of the cost and the approximate time frame to finish the job.
