As your local residential and commercial roofing contractor, Hinkle Roofing has over 110 years of experience repairing, restoring and installing roofs. This has given us the breadth of knowledge that allows us to answer the most common concerns about roofing. Here, we share some of the most frequently asked ones.
How Do You Tell If a Roof Has Problems?
The roof doesn’t always tell you outright if it’s experiencing problems. Surface problems, such as dents and cracks, are easy to spot but the same thing can’t be said for leaks, rot and other structural problems.
Fortunately, you can easily tell if the roof has these (and more) by scheduling an in-depth roofing inspection with us. We can easily spot warning signs that you may miss and head off problems through timely roof repair or replacement.
How Dangerous Is a Roof Leak?
Roof leaks are an underrated threat and can easily become the source of other roofing problems. They are dangerous as many homeowners dismiss them, especially when they are still small. These leaks, however, can grow in size in weeks. More often than not, they fly under the radar and manifest as a real roofing concern, damaging the underlayment, attic and the shingles.
You don’t necessarily have to replace the entire roof once it experiences a leak, though. The only time your roof will require replacement is if the leak damage is irreversible. In many cases, you simply need to patch up the leak.
Can I Repair My Roof on My Own?
The roof is one of the few structures you should leave to the experts. Not only is it risky to tread on steeply pitched roofs, but the roof itself also isn’t always forthcoming with its issues and you may regret stepping on a roof that might be harboring hidden problems.
Working with experienced roofers has its benefits, too. Companies like us have access to higher-quality roofing materials at better prices. You’re also investing in the experience of the roofer and the peace of mind that the team you’ll be working with can address all your roofing concerns.
