Langley Roofers Debunk Roof Repair Myths

Is your roof looking a little shabby? Have you noticed leaking in the attic or crawl space? Sometimes, roof repair is as clear as the nose on your face. Other times, however, the signs might not be so obvious. Roofs are a mystery that only a professional can unravel. Think you know all there is to know about roof repair? Our Langley roofers are here to help debunk the myths.

Myth 1: Undamaged Shingles Means I Don’t Need Roof Repair

It’s true what they say, “never judge a book by its cover.” Just because the shingles look good, doesn’t mean you have a healthy roof. Truth be told, a lot of major roof damage might be hidden from view, concealed underneath the shingles or flashing. If your shingles are intact, don’t assume all is well under your roof. Contact the professionals—only your local Langley roofers know for sure.

Myth 2: Today’s Roofs Last Forever

If only that were true. In a perfect world, a roof would never need repair or replacement. But even a brand new one, made from the toughest shingles, metal, or slate, is going to need some TLC sooner or later. So, until someone comes along and invents an indestructible roofing solution, roof repair will eventually be in the cards.

Myth 3: I Can Do Roof Repair Myself

DIY projects are all the rage these days. But no matter how handy you might be, taking on a roof repair project is a huge job that can cause you some major headaches (and expenses) if you don’t know what you’re doing. Langley roofers have the years of training and access to industry-grade material, ensuring your roof is repaired or replaced properly.

Myth 4: Roof Inspections are a Waste of Time

If you are one of those folks who think roof inspections aren’t important, you could be in for a huge shocker. Getting regular roof maintenance will not only help stop smaller problems from turning into major ones, but also prevent a forfeit of your roofing system warranty. If you can’t remember when (or if) you had a roof inspection, there is no time like the present to get in touch with Langley roofers.

Myth 5: I Don’t Need Roof Repair Because my Roof Isn’t Leaking

Having a leak-free roof now is no guarantee it will always stay that way. If your roof is starting to look its age, a little preventative care now will help keep your roof from springing a leak down the road. Don’t wait for roof leaks to crop up. Schedule a roofing repair appointment before the wet season settles in.

Now that you know the truth about roof repair, it’s never too late to contact Langley roofers for a professional inspection.

Shortly after moving into our new home, we contacted Landmark about doing some maintenance on the structure's 10 year old roof - moss treatment, replacing damaged shingles and faschia board, gutter cleaning, and the installation of a new ridge-vent and water diverters. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and genuinely wanted to help and deliver good value. He and his team delivered on all fronts and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

I haven't met such a professional, efficient and prompt person like David of Landmark Roofing in a very long time. His workers were carefully selected and excellent. David's attention to detail and his personality stands out. I highly recommend Landmark Roofing for any roofing needs and I hope to hire the company again.
