Top Reasons Roofs Need Repairs

Roofs can sustain damage for various reasons. No matter the roofing issue you have, you must address it immediately. Putting off repairs will only cost you more in the long run. 

Top Reasons Roofs Need Repairs

Here are common reasons homeowners schedule roof repair services and how to deal with them. 

Common Causes of Roof Damage


As roofs age, they can become weaker and more prone to damage from weather or other elements. For instance, the average lifespan of asphalt shingles is around 20-25 years, depending on your location and maintenance. If your roof is at least two decades old, it may be time to consider a replacement. 

Storm Damage 

Severe weather conditions, such as hail, strong winds, tornadoes and hurricanes, can cause extensive roof damage. They can break shingles and harm the structure of your roof. After a severe storm, schedule a professional inspection and address damage as soon as detected. This step ensures your residential roofing system lasts long. 

Improper Installation 

Contractors must be careful when installing a new roof to avoid mistakes that could later lead to leaks. Improper installation techniques, like using the wrong nails or failing to seal joints correctly, can result in damage and a shorter roofing lifespan. 

Poor Maintenance 

Routine maintenance helps keep roofs in top shape. It allows your contractor to detect and deal with issues before they become costly repairs. Scheduling inspections, keeping gutters clean and removing moss are some things you can do to ensure your roof stays in good condition. 

How to Deal With Roof Damage

Roof Coating

Special coatings applied directly onto existing roofs provide protection against UV rays and water intrusion. They also reflect solar heat from your home, helping make your indoor spaces cooler in summer. With these coatings, your HVAC system won’t need to work as hard, reducing energy costs. 


Your contractor might suggest re-shingling if your roof suffers damage during a storm but doesn’t require replacement. This option can prolong the life of your roof. It involves replacing compromised shingles with new ones. 

Roof Replacement

Sometimes, repairs can’t restore your roof to its former glory. If this is the case, a roof replacement would be necessary. A new roof will make your home more attractive and energy-efficient. It will also offer more protection against the elements.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
