Roof repair is an important undertaking for millions of homeowners. Timely roof repairs and maintenance will prolong a roof's life. Having your roof repaired will stop roof leaks that may result in damage causing you to replace the entire roof. Repairs need to be done right if you want to stop any problems from becoming bigger.
At KTM Exteriors, we practice only the most up-to-date roofing techniques, are licensed and insured to offer roof installations, roof repairs, and roof replacement. We also offer regular roof inspection services that help us identify and fix problems before they get out of hand. No matter if you have a commercial roof, or a residential roof, we carry out quality roof repairs in Boston.
Many residential roofs in Boston use shingles because the materials are tough and can withstand consistent exposure to heavy rains, UV, and high winds. When your property is exposed to the elements, your shingles may break or become weathered and loose. We are Boston experts who specialize in emergency roof repair and can identify any broken shingles or other potential problems and replace them before leaks occur.
Shingles sometimes split, curl or shrink due to the expansion and contraction associated with temperature changes. If lift shingles have their edges curled, you may experience water seepage. These problems need to be fixed before any further deterioration occurs by an experienced roof repair expert. If you have a missing shingle, or broken asphalt shingles, we can repair your shingle roof.
When your roof starts leaking, it is a sign of either deterioration or roof damage. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to locate the source of the damage since water can travel along the roofing material a long way from the initial problem. KTM roof leak repair experts will help to identify and locate leaks and fix them so you have peace of mind that your roof is sound and carry out any roof damage repair needed. Regular snow removal can assist with the prevention of roof leaks and the need for a future roof leak repair. Emergency roof leak repair is one of the most popular call outs we have, and can be prevented with some regular roof maintenance.
A house that is poorly ventilated can cause damage through overheating and moisture. Shingles can blister and encourage mold and mildew to grow from excessive humidity. Poor ventilation can rot your roof’s rafters and fascia. A humid roof cavity is also a breeding ground for pests and vermin. For roof ventilation issues, KTM Exteriors can undertake the necessary roofing repairs and eliminate further deterioration or the need for roof replacement.
Flat roofs are becoming popular but need more expertise when repairing. So, whether you have an EPDM, TPO, burs, metal roofing or overlapping felt, or they are modified roofs, KTM Exteriors will repair your roof to ensure that all susceptible areas are attended to reduce water seepage.
Our flat roof repair experts can see about the installation of tapered insulation to the roof to allow for a run-off so that water runs off either towards the center where it is then directed to a drain or allow it to drain to one of the sides of the flat roof. This lengthens the life of the roof after repair.
Also, we will include repairs to flashing around HVAC equipment, skylights, or other protrusions on the roof. It protects the roof from leaks and ensures that your flat roof continues providing the much-needed service.
If you are undergoing a roofing restoration, you may need to look at your home records to see when your roof was installed. This important information can give insight into whether your roof should be repaired or replaced. KTM Exteriors can help you decide on the best course of action for your old roof.
The flashing around the chimneys, skylights, and vents can become brittle which causes them to form gaps or cracks that can lead to leaks. Flashing should be made of tar or roof cement, but you may choose to upgrade it to metallic. KTM can fix all roof flashing problems.
There are cases however where repairs alone may not solve your roof problem. In such situations, you may need to install a new roof. At KTM Exteriors, we will conduct a thorough evaluation of your house and determine the best course of action, giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
When you discover that your roof is leaking, the first thing you will need to do is to check and see the extent of the damage. It may require that you climb up and look through the roof. If you see beams of light coming through the top, it may mean that the roof needs to be repaired or replaced.
You may need to look at your home improvement records to see when the roof was installed. This important information can give insight into whether it should be repaired or replaced. Asphalt shingles should last for about 20 to 25 years. But if the roof was installed over existing shingles, you may need to replace it after 20 years.
Shingles sometimes split, curl or shrink due to the expansion and contraction associated with temperature changes. If lift shingles have their edges curled, you may experience water seepage. These problems need to be fixed before any further deterioration occurs by an experienced roof repair expert.
Examine the flashing around the chimneys, skylights and vents. Ensure that there are no breaks or cracks that can lead to leaks. Flashing should be made of tar or roof cement, but you may choose to upgrade it to metallic.
If you have previously carried out minor repairs on your roof, you may notice that it is still sagging. Therefore, you must decide to have it repaired or replaced. Check for rotting boards, trapped moisture as well as sagging spots. If the damage is extensive, you may consider replacing the roof.
When you see mold and fungi on your roof, it means there’s trapped moisture, which can ruin your roof. You’ll want to remove any moss you see on your roof during repairs. Use a stiff brush to remove it and address any other issues which may be causing the problem. If you don't remove it, it may make the roof rot, forcing you to replace the roof in the long run.
Overall, if you notice a few damaged shingles, it may be the right time to talk to KTM Exteriors to help you determine whether to repair or replace the entire roof.
