All roofs require regular maintenance to achieve a long-term service life and minimize the chance of leakage problems in the future. Owners should not allow a nuisance leak to persist and develop into a major problem, degrading insulation and causing mold or dry rot and damaging the roof assembly.
When repairing a roof we always take the time to properly inspect the damaged area before proceeding. We only use products that are compatible with the roof system we are working on, and take great care to maintain the existing look and functionality of the original roof system.
Plotting and pinpointing leaks on a sketch of the structure is an essential part of the process. When we approach a roof with multiple leaks we make it a point to keep track of all the leaking areas. By plotting all leaks we have a greater chance of identifying each source and pinpointing the leak once it is measured on the roof.
Hard to find leaks: Being able to stop a roof from leaking is the true measure of the skill and experience of the roof technician. At San Diego County Roofing & Solar we dedicate a great amount of our time to training our roof technicians to be skilled at the art of finding roof leaks. Not all leaks are equal, and it takes a special kind of training to be able to locate some hard to find leaks. Our approach is simple and is guided by logic, training, experience, and a great amount of intuition.
We take pride in the fact that we have been able to solve many of our customers long standing previously unsolved leaking problems. In many cases we have been able to repair these leaks for a fraction of the price quoted by other companies.
A roofing company may try to sell you a new roof, even when one is not economical, cost-effective, or necessary. This is because a roofing contractor is not always adept at doing residential roof repair or commercial roof repair. Sometimes, a simple roof coating is all it takes to perform a “stop leak” repair. We will perform a skilled, thorough, and honest roof inspection to determine if a new roof is necessary. Such residential roof repair or commercial roof repair is a more affordable and cost-effective option than buying a new roof. It is also more Eco-friendly, since the existing roof is not scrapped, and much of our repair supplies count as green material.
We perform Roof Repairs on all types and brands of both Residential and Commercial Roofs. Including, Asphalt Shingles, Concrete Tile, Clay Tile, Metal, Slate, TPO, PVC, APP Modified, SBS Modified, and Hot Asphalt.
