Repairing any type of roof is easier and cheaper to have done when the problem is a minor one. Annual inspections of the roof with added checks after a huge storm, and the option to call when a problem is suspected are essential parts of a maintenance plan. Replacing a few missing shingles or securing down a flashing seal will take a short amount of time and will not cost much money. Neglecting the roof may result in replacing an entire section of shingles or removing attic insulation because it got wet and moldy. Ask about a maintenance plan to avoid inadvertently neglecting the roof.
When shingle roof repair in St. Charles MO is required, finding an experienced and manufacturer preferred contractor will save homeowners time and money. Having repairs done right the first time will ensure no future damage due to the shingles. Repairing the problem but not securing any replacement shingles will mean the same problem will reoccur. More repairs and more money will need to be spent on the same issue. A guarantee on the craftsmanship is an added-value so look for that before hiring a contractor.
Other Roofing Options
If shingle roof repair in St. Charles MO is needed more than once a year, it may be time to consider replacing shingles with another roofing material. Metal roofing is lightweight, faster to install, will last three-times longer than shingles, and requires virtually no maintenance. It resists rotting, cracking, leaking, mold, and insects. Styles and colors vary and can resemble wood shakes, clay or ceramic tile, and even traditional shingles.
A metal roof is an investment because the initial cost is higher than traditional shingles. That same roof is more cost-effective due to all the savings enjoyed from lack of maintenance costs and utility bill reductions. Rather than looking at simply the initial cost, compare the cost of ownership over the years. It is likely the metal roof that is quicker to install will be the last roofing cost homeowners may ever need to cover.
