Signs Your Roof Needs Repair
The first line of defense against a damaged roof is prevention. Regularly inspect your gutters, soffit and fascia, shingles, and other parts of your roof system for visible damage. Also look out for water damage throughout the home, including the attic, which could be a sign of severe roof damage.
The top causes of roof damage include inclement weather, humidity, lack of proper maintenance, and poor installation in the first place. Check the following items regularly to ensure your roofing issues don’t turn into a roofing emergency:
- Shingle damage, including curling or cracking
- Loss of granules on shingles
- Visible wear and tear around roof features
- Staining on walls or ceilingsSagging roof
Do I Need Roof Repair Or Replacement?
A common question we receive is whether your roof needs repair or replacement. Only an on-site inspection by a professional can determine this, but in general minor damage such as small leaks may only require roofing repair and not a new roof. That said, if the damage is more extensive and has spread to a sizable portion of your roof, it may be time to consider a full replacement. Failing to get a much-needed roof replacement can lead to a rotting roof and interior water damage as well as threaten the safety of those who live under it.

- Good references

- Industry credentials and affiliations
Common Roofing Repair Questions
Check with your homeowners insurance provider to see if your roof damage is covered. In some cases, your policy may cover leaks if it’s caused by an incident covered by the policy. In general, insurance doesn’t cover general wear and tear or damage due to lack of maintenance. There also may be wind or hail exclusions.
When roof damage presents itself, be sure to fully inspect and document the damage, then contact your home insurance agent for next steps. All Star Roofing has extensive experience working with most major insurance carriers.
Roofing repair is considered a home improvement and is not tax deductible. However, not keeping your roof properly maintained can negatively impact the value of your property. Additionally, a well-maintained roof will keep your home adequately insulated, saving on energy cost.
There are two components of a roofing warranty - supplies and labor. While warranties on roofing materials can last anywhere from decades to a lifetime, warranties on labor are typically for a much shorter length of time, ranging from one year to a few years.
