Re-roofing or Tear Off Roofing Services for Your Home
Installing a new roof on your home is commonly caused by the natural elements from the weather: wind, rain, sun, and those spring storms. Let us not forget those branches hanging low that rub against the roofing system. Shingles contain granules that come loose, exposing the roofing shingles to wear further. Also, shake roofs become weaker when tree branches rub, causing the shakes to become loose and fall off. Be sure to have FTC Oury Group inspect your roofing system as part of your home’s maintenance routine.

Roof Repair Tips Homeowners Should Know
A leaking roof can result in serious and costly damage to your house. You should repair a roof immediately after the damage occurs. Repairing a damaged roof is sometimes a simple matter of applying roofing cement to an obvious hole; at other times, you will require to diagnose the problem and calculate the benefits of repairs versus installing a new roof. This section will guide you through repairs for all kinds of roofs.
Fixing a Leaky Roof
If a roof begins to leak, determine whether it is meaningful to make permanent repairs or whether you need to apply new roofing. Here are your options:
- If the roof is typically sound with only one or two weak spots, the damage may have come from a falling branch or a particularly severe windstorm. In this situation, make permanent repairs.
- If the roof shows signs of general wear, making repairs will only temporarily solve the issue; other leaks will soon appear. Begin planning a re-roof.
- If you can re-roof soon but want a few weeks to plan and prepare, cover leaks with plywood or plastic sheets until you begin.
- If you’re going to wait a year or so, make permanent repairs now, like replacing shingles. After every rainfall, inspect the attic, make additional repairs, or take steps to protect your interior spaces from water damage.
Identifying Roof Problems
Even if you have not noticed a leak, it’s still vital to inspect your roof every year. Look for problems like cupping, splitting, water damage, and more. We’ll also provide suggestions for repairing common roof problems.
Replacing Shingles and Shakes
If you notice a few shingles or shakes that need to be replaced during your yearly roof inspection, fear not. This is work most homeowners can manage without calling a professional. The initial step is to locate replacement shingles or shakes—and hopefully, you have some leftover from your original roof installation. Then you will be required to remove the damaged pieces, install new underlayment, and add the new shingles or shakes.
Repairing a Flat Roof
Flat roofs often have different coverings as compared to standard roofs; hence the repair process is a little bit more complicated. You will learn what materials to use and the perfect process for the job.
