Roof Damage – Repair – What is Involved – Kansas City

Roof damage from storms is a fairly common occurrence in Kansas City. High winds, hail, falling limbs, all can cause damage to your roof and require repairs or replacement.

AAS-Restoration-Roofing-roof damage-roof-repairRepairing or replacing a damaged roof is a multi-step process and requires no small amount of skill. It is more than just nailing down new shingles. The best approach depends on a thorough understanding of the basic process of roofing with the goal of protecting your investment, starting with an assessment of the roof damage. Begin by conducting a search of contractors who offer roof damage repair or replacement and compare estimates. What comes next depends on what the inspection reveals.

An inspection to assess the roof damage begins with having your contractor check for such things as wet or rotted wood, holes in the shingles, missing shingles, and any other roof damage. This will determine the full scope and cost of the roof repair job. Minor repairs can be done if the roof is in good condition; if it isn’t, then the damaged wood should be replaced with either plywood or boards.

When replacing the roof appears to be the best option, one of the first steps is to choose the type of roofing materials you want. There are many options of materials to choose from, such as asphalt tiles, wood shakes, metal, and slate. Your contractor will be able to advise you on the best type of roofing materials to fix your roof damage.

Once all the preliminaries are out of the way the roofing crew will begin by removing all existing shingles and preparing for the installation of a new roof. Make sure he examines the wood sheeting to see if it is still attached to the roof and look for any missing nails when they remove the old roofing material.

Your contractor will have secured a large dumpster on-site for waste; old roofing materials should be deposited in the dumpster systematically throughout the process. Care should also be taken of your surrounding property – shrubbery, flowers, trees, fencing, etc. Tarps can be used to cover plants and other items as necessary.

Some basic steps to repairing roof damage are the installation of a synthetic ice and water barrier to prevent leaks, which can cause damage to your home’s interior. Asphalt paper is laid down on top of the wood decking and then shingles are applied on top of that, starting at the eaves and working upward to the peak of the roof. Flashing is then applied around the chimney and vents and any other areas where leaks could occur, and then a ridge vent and capping is installed.
