Signs That You Need To

Hire A Roofer

For many people, the first sign that there is something wrong with their roof is when they notice a leak. Unfortunately, if there are leaks, your roof may be in pretty bad shape. Leaks can take several forms, from the obvious dripping of water from the ceiling to discolored areas, swollen paint, or stains on walls and ceilings. The insulation in your attic can also be a quick way to determine whether or not you have a leak.

Damaged Shingles

Damaged shingles are an obvious indication that something is wrong with your roof. While missing or broken shingles are the clearest example that your roof has taken too many beatings, there are a few other signs to look out for that your roof needs some TLC.

  • Check your gutters and downspouts after a storm. If you see lots of granules that match the color of your roof, it means that the storm has taken a toll on your roof. Don’t assume that all is well if, after successive storms, you don’t see these granules piling up. It could mean that the damage is already so severe that your shingles don’t have much more protection to offer.
  • Look for curled, dark, or wet shingles. Shingles curl for a number of reasons, including improper installation, installing new shingles on top of old shingles, age, and improper roof ventilation. Dark or wet shingles are usually a sign that your shingles aren’t functioning properly anymore — they’re designed to repel water, not absorb it — so if your shingles are still wet after a storm, it may be time for a new roof.

Your Roof is Old

Unless you have a metal roof, your roof won’t last forever. While some types of roofs can last for 30-50 years, the most common roofing types usually last between 15 and 20 years. Extreme weather, including hail, heavy rain, snow, and extreme temperatures, can all shorten the lifespan of your roof. If it has been at least 15 years since your roof was replaced and you are starting to see signs that it may not be in the best condition, you should think about contacting a roofer to find out what your roof needs.

Thorough Inspections

Some roofing companies will provide you with a quick inspection and try to sell you on a new roof. At Tim Leeper Roofing, we don’t do that. Our inspections are thorough and go far beyond a fast visual inspection of your shingles. One of our experienced and qualified team members will check everything from your shingles to your gutters, flashing, and more in order to accurately determine the extent of the damage.

Once you have gotten an inspection

it is time to find a roofer that can handle whichever kind of work your roof needs

Roof Repairs and Replacements

Once you have gotten an inspection, it is time to find a roofer that can handle whichever kind of work your roof needs. Some roofing companies specialize in repairs, while others are most experienced with replacements. Some companies work exclusively on residential properties, while another roofing contractor might only repair and replace roofs on commercial buildings. Some companies, like Tim Leeper Roofing, have tons of experience doing everything. While most roofers can handle both, it pays to hire a team that can do either with equal facility. Our teams have years of experience working with a variety of materials on repair and replacement jobs big and small.

Residential Roofing Experience

You want your home to be safe, comfortable, and to hold (or increase) its value over time. Roof damage threatens to quickly undo all of those desires while simultaneously being a large expense that you may not be able to afford to pay on your own. If your roof has been damaged, please reach out to your insurance company to start the process of getting your roof repaired or replaced. Paying your deductible and dealing with the slight inconvenience of some roof work can help you save many thousands of dollars in the future. If you need a fast quote or you have questions about your roof, please feel free to reach out to us at Tim Leeper Roofing.

Great Ratings

If you have several quotes from a few different roofing contractors, it is a good idea to do some checking around before you commit. One of the easiest ways to find out if the companies you have talked to will do good work is to ask people you know for a referral. We get a great deal of our business from referrals because our customers are happy with the work we’ve done and the way we treated them.

Online reviews and ratings are another excellent way for you to be able to find out which roofers are competent and trustworthy. We’re proud of the ratings that we have earned and we encourage you to use Google, Angie’s List, or Top Rated Local® to see why people are so happy with us (and why they might not be as happy with some of the other roofers in the Nashville area).

If you’re trying to spend as little money as possible on your roof repair or roof replacement, just remember that, like most things related to your home or business, you really do get what you pay for. There are many roofing companies out there that will work cheap, but you’ll quickly find out why — they use inferior materials, they take longer to finish a job than they quoted, they’re messy, or they just don’t do the work that well. We do everything we can to keep costs low so we can help the most people, but remember to take a look at the online ratings for all of the companies you consider before making a decision.

Claims

Assistance

When you are calling different roofing companies for quotes or inspections, it is a good idea to ask them if they offer claims assistance. Dealing with an insurance company can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially if you’ve never had to do it before. At Tim Leeper Roofing, we help our customers navigate through this complicated process. We’ll even contact your insurance company and work with them on your behalf to expedite your claim!

If you haven’t contacted your insurance company yet, we suggest you do that as soon as possible, especially if your roof was damaged by a storm or if you aren’t sure whether they will cover roof repairs or a roof replacement. The first week or so after a storm has hit the area will be a busy time for your insurer, so the sooner you get the process started, the better.

If you have questions about how claims assistance works, or you’re ready to let someone else handle the insurance company, give us a call today.
