How Much Does It Cost To Repair A Leaky Roof

Have you recently noticed a leak in your roof?  This is never something that you want to wake up to in the morning, especially after a storm that just rolled through your neighborhood.  Your first thought may be how much it will cost to repair the damage.  Here at Houston Roofing we can help you through the process of figuring out how much it will cost to repair your leaky roof.  Houston Roofing and Construction can even help you with insurance claims and is a group of fantastic and licensed craftsmen who care and want to make the process as stress-free as possible.  So, how much does it cost to repair a leaky roof?  

Types Of Roof Repair

First, in order to figure out how much it costs to repair a leaky roof, it’s important to assess the roof.  It can be as simple as a cracked shingle or an issue with flashing, but this is why it’s important to get a free estimate from Houston Roofing.  

Small Repairs To A Leaky Roof

Small roof repairs can often be done at a low cost—often under a thousand dollars.  But once again, it is important to assess the entire roof to make sure the damage isn’t as small as it seems.  The issues come in when previous homeowners didn’t attempt to fix leaks or contact a home repair company.  So, you may not know how long these leaks and damage have been occurring.  

Patching up small leaks and replacing cracked or missing shingles is a smaller project and is typically less expensive.  But, it’s imperative that you have a licensed roofing company do this job because of the guarantee and warranty that come along with it.  There could be a small hole in your roof, or flashing could be an issue.  If the flashing has come undone or the adhesive that holds the flashing together has become corroded, then this is something that can be replaced for a lower price, rather than a huge roof repair or replacement.

Some other issues that may be causing your leaky roof are sealing issues or exposed nail heads, and can lead to mold, water damage, and even roof sagging.  Now, when a problem has been around for a while and has caused much deeper damage, including things like chimney repair, it’s important to figure out the root cause.

Did you know that sometimes leaks can be caused by items that are placed on your roof, such as air conditioning units?  It could be as simple as that.  So, the cost to repair a leaky roof by a licensed roofing contractor can differ depending on how severe the damage is.

Larger Repairs 

The larger repairs by roofing contractors come in when there is extensive damage, typically over time.  However, it can be from a very bad wind or hail storm that has come through as well.  Now, we definitely suggest getting a roof estimate from us before you contact your insurance company because they will be asking you for one when you file your claim.  Some of the larger repairs can include fixing an entire chimney, replacing all of the flashing on your home, treating the house for mold, or total replacing of your roof. This is when you will see those larger price tags because of the number of materials, labor, and time that go into these types of projects.

Insurance & Financing 

You have homeowners insurance for a reason.  You purchase it to protect your home in case of a storm or a fire or any other issue that may pass by.  It’s important to understand how to navigate the claims process and Houston Roofing can help you.  Our roof insurance specialists can help to schedule your free estimate and help you through the claims process.  Remember, it’s important to have a full copy of your insurance policy so you know what is covered and what your deductibles are before filing a claim.  This, you can easily request from your insurance company.  We also offer financing to help you if there are any issues with insurance or all of the costs are not covered by your insurance company. 

We are here to help.  This is why we have trained professionals not only in commercial and residential roofing but went a step further to offer help with your insurance claims.
