Recognizing and Dealing With Common Roofing Repairs
If you are in need of roof repairs for your Palm Beach or Martin County home or business, you have come to the right place. Yet, what most consumers want to know first is if they are even having a problem worth reporting.
The first thing to keep in mind is that any issue concerning your roof is one that should be reported and assessed by an industry expert. Roof repairs are no joke and should be addressed in a prompt and professional manner.
Failing to address this type of service need is one surefire way to end up quickly with major repair needs or, even worse, the need for premature replacement. Learn how to watch for red flags that could indicate a bigger problem so that you can act accordingly and, in most cases, divert disaster.
Signs You Need Roof Repairs
Are any of these signs showing up at your house and trying to let you know that you need to call in a roofing contractor (blue)?
Missing or damaged shingles are nothing to take lightly. There are a number of reasons you may have damaged or missing shingles but the thing to keep in mind is that even just one can lead to serious problems. Each place on your roof that is not protected by a shingle is a vulnerable place where water intrusion can occur. That means even just one small spot could lead to a leak, mold, rot and, eventually, could compromise the structural integrity of your roofing.
Any sign of a leak is a big deal. So, if you notice water spots in your interior it needs to be addressed immediately. The location of the actual leak is often not in the same place as where the resulting spots appear. Let an industry expert take a look and assess the situation, in order to locate the source of the problem and take care of it before it gets worse.
While a missing shingle may be easy to identify, loose granules may not be. You can often spot these granules in the downspout, where they wash away to. For a new roof, this is not a concern. It's just granules that came loose during installation. However, once you have had your roof in place for a while, if you notice excessive loose granules, call your roofing pro immediately.
When in doubt, make the call. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking care of your roof.

The RoofSmith was great throughout the process. We needed a complete re-roof on our 30+ year old roof and they did a terrific job. They were very communicative throughout the process. They were constantly on site making sure everything went smoothly and finished to our liking. I would highly recommend RoofSmith and have already recommended them to my sister for work needed at her house. Very professional firm.

Danny Tomici of The RoofSmith is a very honest, reliable gentleman. He provided excellent service installing hurricane resistant glass in my skylight and making a few repairs to my roof. It was done in a very timely manner. I was so surprised how quickly he made the repairs. The work is completed and I am still waiting for another roofing company to give me a quote. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again in the future.

The RoofSmith fixed the part of my roof that had a water leak from a ventilation pipe that was not properly sealed when my roof was redone about 9 years ago from another roofing company. The repair job was done quickly and professionally. I recommend this company for anyone needing roof repair re-refoofing.

After a rather exhausted search for someone I could trust to do my roof quite by accident my wife's boss had an excellent recommendation; her neighbor by the name of Danny Tomici, owner of The RoofSmith. I contacted him and unlike most roofers I'd contacted he promptly came over the next day. He gave me a fair estimate and impressed me so much (as someone I could count on) that I contracted him to do the job after giving a previous contractor an extra day to give me an estimate. Actually finally heard back from the other roofer A WEEK after...The RoofSmith had already finished the roof......no joke. The work was done within a reasonable length of time and the quality was outstanding. Replaced wood where needed and Danny personally took care of some minor issues promptly. I can't say enough about the job The RoofSmith and Danny Tomici did and I would highly recommend them, they can be trusted to do the job RIGHT!

The RoofSmith recently performed work on a section of my roof that had leaking and corrosion. I was impressed by how responsive they were and how well they explained everything. Also thought their use of technology was great - they took videos of the before and after of the location so that I could actually see what had been done which is great because it saved me from having to climb up there myself! Would use them again and highly recommend.
