- Shingle Repair and Replacement: The shingles are the first line of defense on your roof which means they are also the most vulnerable to damage. Our technicians effectively repair and replace damaged shingles.
- Leak Repair and Prevention: Roof leaks can be dangerous because they cause significant water damage to the materials underneath which can lead to major structural issues. We can quickly identify and repair roof leaks. Our emergency crews can make temporary repairs including covering your roof with a waterproof blanket called a tarp to stop the leaks until permanent repairs can be made.

For as important as the roof is for protecting a building, many home and business owners are unaware of the condition of their roof unless they climb up there themselves. There are some signs of potential problems with the roof that can be seen from inside, such as water damage and lower energy efficiency, but these issues can be attributed to many different occurrences.
Even if you occasionally walk on the roof of your business to check its condition, you may not notice certain issues that a roofing professional is trained to find. This is why it is recommended to have your roof inspected by an experienced contractor that can identify minor to severe issues.
Is your roof looking worn? Has it been leaking? Is it nearing the end of its expected life span? Not sure if you can re-roof your roof with a second layer of shingles or should completely replace it? Below are five reasons why replacement may be your best choice.
Downside of Re-Roofing – Asphalt shingle roofing materials are designed to be installed in one layer for optimum performance. These same shingles have a much shorter life span when installed over an existing layer of old shingles. A roof with more than one layer of existing shingles cannot be re-roofed.
Longer Life – A new roof lasts from 25-30 years, compared to 10-15 years for re-roof where a second layer of shingles is installed over the original roof. It may cost less, but you get less roof.
Better Warranty – New roofs typically have a 25 year warranty. A re-roof may have a much shorter warranty.
Better Protection – A new roof gives you proper ice and water protection with new underlayment, new felt paper.
Ability To See Under The Existing Roof – When we tear off the old shingles, we expose the roof underlayment and can evaluate its condition and make any necessary repairs.
Better Ventilation – Proper ventilation is key to a long lasting roof and roof replacement usually includes new and additional venting.

To repair a roof or not, that is the question. Actually, the question is based on whether the cost is worth doing it now, or waiting until the roof leaks, in which case, it is more like a gamble and a wager that the homeowner makes virtually every day. Yet, when water starts trickling overhead into your living space, the decision is easy: fix the leak!
Our goal with this guide is to make sure you are better equipped for managing what really is an ongoing wager between your roof and the elements outside, along with the factor of time.
Do nothing between now and the next time your roof needs to be replaced and the odds are against you. You might get lucky, but you have the opportunity to make your own luck. Be proactive by having your roof inspected regularly and keep little problems from becoming big problems.
The expected cost range for a typical roof repair:
- $1150 to $1400 for minor repairs
- $1400 to $3000 for moderate repairs
- $3000 to $10,000 for major repairs
Is your roof looking worn? Is it missing shingles? Has it been leaking? Is it nearing the end of its expected lifespan? Not sure if you can re-roof your roof with a second layer of shingles or completely replace it? Below are five reasons why re-roofing may be your best choice.
Re-Roofing Costs Less
A complete roof replacement costs more in labor and materials, particularly if the existing roof must be removed first. Re-Roofing on the other hand, requires less labor and materials, and thus costs less.
Re-Roofing Extends Your Roof’s Life
Residential roofs typically last about 25 years — re-roofing can add 10 to 15 years of life and allow you to defer complete replacement.
Re-Roofing is More Sustainable
Millions of tons of roofing waste end up in landfills each year. Because it allows you to reuse your existing roof, re-roofing is a much more environmentally friendly option. Plus, re-roofing can make your building more energy efficient because your existing roof acts as an additional insulator.
Re-Roofing Helps Prevent Catastrophic Loss
Ignoring the fact that your roof is deteriorating won’t make the problem go away; it will only get worse. The more time passes, the greater the potential for damage and the more it costs to restore your roof. At some point, the only option will be total roof replacement.
Storm Damage Repair
Every building has a roof that forms part of the protective envelope that seals the interior from the outside elements. Because the roof is constantly exposed to sun, wind, rain, hail, extreme temperature, snow and ice, it is likely to sustain damage over time. Roof damage can and often does lead to serious issues within your home. The question is not, if your roof is going to leak, the question is when is it going to leak.
In addition to severe weather, animals, tree branches and storm debris can also damage the your roof. When roof damage occurs, you should act immediately to repair the roof and prevent further damage.
RoofWorx professional staff is trained to handle any roofing emergency from basic repairs to complete roof replacement and restoration.
RoofWorx will assist you in dealing with your insurance company and help make sure that you receive maximum coverage under your homeowners insurance policy.
A home’s exterior siding can make or break its curb appeal. Loose, missing or damaged siding, can give a bad impression of your home. That’s why it’s important not only to choose the right siding for your home and that you can keep up with any maintenance that it may require.
In order to determine the right exterior siding for your home, you’ll need to consider the cost, both in materials and installation, durability, energy efficiency warranty and aesthetics.
If you’re looking to spruce up your home’s exterior siding or looking for a complete makeover, we have the pros and cons of each option.
Vinyl is a tough plastic material that entered the exterior siding market in the late 1950s, replacing the once-popular aluminum siding. Its durability and low-maintenance profile made it a fast fan-favorite for homeowners who wanted to save money on exterior siding.
Siding varies in both color and texture, allowing a wide range of exterior aesthetic options for homeowners. Some variations even include imitations of wood grain and stone. Siding also varies in thickness – typically the thicker the material, the higher the cost, while still being lightweight and easy to install.
There’s even a newer option of insulated vinyl siding, although the cost is slightly higher than traditional vinyl siding. Both the vinyl siding material and installation are relatively inexpensive, just under $10,000 on average.
Soffit & Fascia
The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the lower ends of the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the lower edge of the bottom row of shingles. The fascia board also carries the gutters.
The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. It is usually the board that you see most of from street level. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board. Many people prefer the latter solution these days. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber and decking decay.
Because rain gutters come in different materials, different colors and different configurations, it can be a little nerve-wracking to figure out which rain gutter system is best for your house. Your best bet is to talk to us. We will help you understand exactly what you should be looking for and help you decipher any vocabulary you might not be familiar with.
Here are the types of gutters for your home:
Aluminum gutters are lightweight and rust-proof. Unlike vinyl, aluminum gutters can withstand cold climates and can be installed in a wide variety of colors that will coordinate with the outside of your house.
You will need to decide between sectional versus seamless and K-Shape or Half-Round shape. If you prefer the seamless model, you are going to have to go with an aluminum gutter system because that is the only type that currently offers a seamless option. In addition, when choosing the shape of the gutters, keep in mind that K-shape gutters carry more water and are more structurally sound than the half-round shape.
The most important thing is to choose the right gutter system to move rainwater quickly and efficiently away from your home. The rest just comes down to the look you prefer and how much you can afford to spend.
