Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Repair And Replacement In Louisville KY

If you have missing shingles or other damage to your roof, you should contact a professional company for Roof Repair in Louisville KY. A leaky roof can cause damage to the inside of your home, which can eventually cause expensive repairs. If you’re planning on repairing your roof, below are some frequently asked questions about roof repair and replacement.

Q.) My roof is several years old and there are several shingles missing. Will I need a roof replacement or can it be repaired?

A.) Before making the repairs to your roof, a contractor will inspect the condition of your entire roof. If your roof is in good condition, other than the missing shingles, you’ll only need repairs. If most of your roof has damage and wear, you should have it replaced. Even if part of your roof will last a few more years, it may be less costly to have the entire roof replaced now instead of paying for repairs and then having to pay for a whole new roof later.

Q.) If my entire roof has to be replaced, will the old shingles be taken off the roof first?

A.) If your home already has two layers of shingles, they must be taken off. Too many shingles on your roof adds too much weight to the structure of your house. If there’s only one layer of shingles, you can have the contractor leave them on or take them off. By removing the old shingles, the contractor will be able to inspect the roof deck for any damage prior to placing the new shingles on the roof.

Q.) I don’t have any missing shingles, so why is my roof leaking?

A.) The reason for your leaky roof may be from loose shingles that need to be nailed down or from worn out shingles. Over time, the granules on your shingles will wear off and when there’s major granule loss, the shingles aren’t protecting your house. Other reasons for a leaky roof include missing or loose flashing, a hole in your roof or improper gutter drainage. A contractor that does Roof Repair in Louisville KY can inspect your roof and determine the cause of the leak.
