  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


Things to Keep in Mind When Repairing Your Roof

Your roof is a tricky structure to maintain and repair because it contains so many different parts. If your roof is in need of repair, it pays to understand the basics of residential roofing maintenance before beginning the project. Read on as Universal Roofing and Exteriors explains more:

Things to Keep in Mind When Repairing Your Roof

Roof Material Affects Price

This is a bit of a no-brainer, but it bears repeating: your roof material affects the price of future repairs. Asphalt shingles, arguably the most popular roof system, are also among the cheapest to repair—even more so than wood or metal shingles. The extent of the damage to your roof also affects how much your roof repair will cost. Isolated damage is usually relatively cheap, while blow-offs and tear-offs can be costly.

Preventative Repair Is Cheaper

Many homeowners don’t think about roof repair until an obvious problem arises. This is a short-term reaction to a long-term problem, which is why we highly recommend preventive roof repair. A small leak, for example, can quickly grow in just a couple of weeks and will become more expensive to repair. Let us do an in-depth inspection on your roof to see if we can address a small problem before it becomes bigger.

Always Hire a Professional

Handy homeowners may be tempted to take the DIY approach with roof repair, but this is extremely risky. Your local roofing companies have years of experience handling a wide range of roof projects, possess all the tools and equipment they’ll ever need, and can source higher-quality materials at better prices.
