When a problem arises with your residential or commercial roof, the team at ML Raab & Sons can bring a solution directly to you. Our roof repair services provide a quick and affordable fix. Roof repair is available on all kinds of roofs.
The first step to roof repair is identifying the source of the problem, which is most commonly some sort of leak. However, some leaks are not located directly where water is coming through the roof.
Our technicians will quickly locate the source of your leak and then make recommendations on how to solve the problem. Leaky roofs can be responsible for damaging drywall, rotting wood, and creating mold which we ant to avoid.
The good news is there are repair solutions that can stop these problems and save your current roof. Many times, a leak in your roof will be caused by the following problems:
Flashing is used on a roof to keep water out of a home or business. It is located around the chimney and its sidewalls. Mortar on a chimney will deteriorate over time and when that happens, the flashing will begin to loosen, thus springing an eventual leak. In these instances, the flashing would need to be replaced and sealed so that it can serve its function of repelling water.
This refers to the plumbing that runs up and rests on top of the roof. Pipe boots are made of rubber and do not usually last as long as an actual roof. Harsh weather conditions can take a toll on that rubber and when it cracks, the result is a leaky roof. Fixing this problem not only requires replacing the rubber, but properly sealing it as well.
Harsh wintry conditions can freeze water inside of gutters, making them into large chucks of ice. When that occurs, excess water has nowhere to fall so it begins to work its way up into the roofline. That leads to water leaks on the outside walls of a building or home. An Ice-and-Water Shield is used to fix these kinds of problems and prevent leaks from recurring.
Customer satisfaction is a top priority at ML Raab & Sons, which is why homeowners can count on our technicians to identify their trouble spot right away and get to work on a solution. No matter what kind of roof you have protecting your family, we will work our best to keep you from having to purchase a new roof.
It is very common for buildings to be topped with flat roofs or for added extensions on existing properties to be completed with flat roofing construction. There is a particular way technicians fix these problems and our technicians are well-versed in those methods. Flat roof repair is available on homes, warehouses, apartment complexes, office buildings, and more.
In the case of a roofing emergency, make sure you remember these three points
1- Don't go up on the roof yourself: A damaged roof is a dangerous environment, and you should let a professional be the first to check it out
2-Cover the interior: Using plastic sheeting will protect the interior of your home and help prevent leaks
3-Inspect the roof visually: From the ground, take a visual inspection of your roof to note debris and possible damage
