Roof Repair

Roof leaks can wreak a lot of havoc within the internal structure of your home, which means that it’s important to catch a roof leak as soon as possible to avoid additional damage. Here are the most common signs of a roof leak: 

  • Missing or damaged shingles
  • Missing or cracked flashing
  • Water spots on the walls or ceiling
  • Wet roof decking

Roof repair costs vary depending on the situation because the extent of roof damage will also vary. Minor roof repairs may fall anywhere between $150 and $1500, while larger roof repairs can cost anywhere between $1500 and $5000. If your damage covers a large portion of the roof or nears the cost of roof replacement, we will work with you to find the best solution.

Roofing damage usually happens because of severe weather, lack of maintenance, or old age. This can lead to missing or damaged shingles, flashing, or roof leaks. The most common roof repairs will center around repairing shingles or roof leak repairs. If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your roof, contact us and we can inspect your roof and recommend any needed repairs. 

If you want to keep your roof in excellent condition, it’s important to schedule annual maintenance. If your location is hit by a severe storm, schedule an inspection quickly to ensure your roof hasn’t incurred any damage. Occasionally look for any signs of a roof leak and watch for missing or damaged shingles or flashing. 

Roof Replacement

Most roofs will last anywhere from 15-30 years. This number will depend on the roofing material, the quality of the installation, and if the roof is properly maintained. 

We always recommend removing your current roofing material before the new material is added. Most state regulations declare that you can’t have more than 2 layers of shingles. If you are short on time or money, adding a second layer is possible. However, it’s best to remove the existing material before roof replacement begins so we can catch and address any underlying issues.

The best seasons for roof replacement are spring and summer. Winter roof replacements are more difficult because weather conditions make it more difficult for our crew to work and for the roofing sealants to adhere to the surface. However, our team will take on roof replacement at any time. Schedule a consultation today!

Slate and concrete are roofing materials that last the longest but are much more expensive to install. The most common roofing material is asphalt, which is much more affordable. It won’t last as long, but it is durable and a more reasonable install for residential homes. There are also new advancements in luxury asphalt shingles that can last 25 years or more with maintenance. 

Solar Roofing

Solar roofing is a great option because it’s environmentally friendly, lowers utility bills, and can be used to earn tax credits. Most people like solar roofing because it’s an energy-efficient roofing material that helps homeowners move towards better environmental methods at home. 

Solar panels are typically used for solar roofing installations. They are large panels that are placed on top of the current roof. Solar shingles were invented by Tesla to be attached directly to the roof. They are designed to look like asphalt shingles, which allows them to blend in seamlessly with the roof. Solar shingles are more aesthetically pleasing, while solar panels are a more affordable option.

If your solar panels need to be repaired, you can contact our team at Perimeter Roofing Columbus! We can repair or replace the panels, depending on the existing damage. 

Insurance Claims

Whether or not your roof replacement is covered by insurance depends on your specific situation. You could likely file a successful claim if your roof damage occurred due to severe weather. Damage caused by old age or lack of maintenance will usually not be covered. We encourage you to become familiar with your policy coverage to prepare for these situations.

Absolutely! We frequently work with insurance providers to ensure your roof repair or replacement project happens successfully. Insurance providers we work with frequently include State Farm, USAA, Farmers, Progressive, Liberty Mutual, Allstate, Nationwide, and more.
