Unfortunately, most roof problems are only uncovered after serious damage has already occurred. So, if you suspect there is an issue with your roof, it is best to request an evaluation as quickly as possible.
Repair or Replace?
The decision to repair or replace roof sections is made on a building-by-building basis. With the expert repair specialists of Trudel & Sons Roofing Ltd, we can help determine if the remaining serviceable life of a roof is worth repairing or if a replacement would be more beneficial.
When to Repair
Repairing specific roofing elements can be financially justified when the cause of damage to the roof is from certain types of impact, such as hail or a fallen tree. Other types of incidents where a decision will need to be made can include:
In these cases, once the roof is repaired, the roof is expected to live out its expected service life, making the repair a viable investment.
Detecting Roof Leaks
At Trudel & Sons Roofing we make every effort to assess the leak source on the first try. However, the ability to immediately identify water infiltration causes can often be a challenge, one that is often compounded by limited interior access. Due to gravity, water will trail along the path of least resistance, so although it may be entering the building in one location it could very well entered many feet away in a less obvious area. Not having x-ray vision to see underneath a roof system is a hindrance for all roofing contractors, thus patience is always appreciated if several visits are required to find the entry point of the leak and complete the repair.
We will use our expertise to rule out the most obvious roof faults and take the most logical approach. To keep costs to a minimum, we will start with the most likely reasons for water intrusion and then expand from there as necessary.
