How Long Do Roof Repairs Take?
Great question! Every roof is truly unique, each one has its own specific story, including; weather conditions, the materials your roof is made out of, and also the level of maintenance it has received over the years. As a result, it’s important to assess each individual roof to determine how long a roof repair will take. Houston Roofing has a great deal of experience in repairing and even replacing many different types of roofs and we specialize in roof repairs in the Houston, TX area. Let us help you to understand how long your roof repair will actually take.
Types of Roof Repairs
There are many types of roofs in the Houston, TX area. Wood shingle, asphalt, wood shake roofs, composite and slate just to name a few. In certain situations, a roof repair can be as simple as just replacing a tile or sealing up an area that has been exposed to a storm. But, there are other situations that can bring on more significant damage. Storm, hail and wear and tear can lead to changes in your roof’s stability, so let’s go over some types of residential roofing repairs.
Storm Damage Repair
Storms can cause a severe amount of damage to your roof, so the best step is to first assess the issue before deciding whether or not you need a roof repair or replacement. Because flying debris and wind can cause havoc, Houston Roofing wants to make sure that your roof is sound before making the determination on what outcome is best. So, how long will the repair take? The good news is that if it is a repair, even an extensive repair, most repairs can be done within one day. If the damage is a bit deeper, typically three to five days.
Hail Damage Repair
We have all lived through the hail storms here in Houston, TX. If you have been a long-time resident, you know about all of the damage and deep freezes we have been experiencing lately. The good news is that even with hail damage, sometimes the roof can just be repaired. It all depends on the amount of damage. If it’s extensive, you definitely want to reach out to your insurance company immediately. If it’s minor, you may just need a repair and this can take between one and five days typically.
General Wear And Tear
This type of damage happens to all of us. There is no true way to expertly analyze what is happening to the roof above our heads unless we continuously go up there. So, wear and tear happens. It could be a missing tile or a leak caused by something as simple as asphalt coming up. Sometimes, we also see damage from animals and pests, causing issues over time. Most of these issues are taken care of with roof repairs. Once again, the typical time is between one to five days, depending on how extensive the damage is.
Let Us Help You With The Insurance Process
First, this is what makes us a bit different from other roofing companies. We understand insurance. We actually have some wonderful team members that can walk you through the claims process. Filing a claim, understanding what is covered, and also making sure you have an licensed expert do a free consultation is imperative when it comes to insurance. Your insurance typically covers certain roof repairs and replacements, but not all of them. Those caused by wear and tear and other issues may not be covered, so it’s important to figure out the root cause of the issue and this is done through Houston Roofing.
