Maintaining a solid roof literally tops the list of significant home improvements, keeping you, your family, and your furniture warm and dry inside the house. The new roof can be an expensive investment but can never be an incorrect decision.
If the roof is more than 12-13 years old and most shingles have deteriorated, it’s time to replace them. But if your roof is healthy and you have a relatively shallow slope that you want to work on, you can probably do most of the repairs yourself.
At Fixins Home Services LLC, we can provide specialist and emergency roof repair services for your roofing problems. Usually, if the roof is more than 12–15 years old and you have a leak or other problem, it is an indication to replace the roof. If you want an inspection on your new roof, our estimators and technicians can perform a comprehensive roof inspection to advise you on a suitable decision.

- Replacing Cracked Shingles
When shingles begin to erupt, it usually occurs because they become brittle over time. The effect is also called thermal splitting because asphalt shingles expand and change in weather and extreme temperatures.
Cracked shingles are a problem, not because they don’t look good but because they are prone to severe damages. They also lose grains that let sunlight break from the roof, irregulating the roof’s ability to insulate the house. If there are asphalt shingles on the roof with missing grains, it is best to remove the damaged ones and replace them with new ones.
- Replacing Missing Shingles
Even with broken shingles, missing tabs are worse than sticking out shingles that look like sore thumbs on a roof. Shingles can disappear, especially after severe storms. It is possible that the shingles on the roof are not correctly positioned, due to which loose shingles may blow off the roof.
When this happens, your home needs all simple roof repairs. Repairing the missing shingles becomes even more important as water can damage the roof sheathing, causing rot and leaks in the ceiling.
- Basic Maintenance
Lack of maintenance is a minor problem that can become severe over time. The types of preventive maintenance that household members can do on weekends require little time, money, and effort. Electric roof washing is a great way to keep the roof free of dead leaves, moss, and algae.
Cleaning gutters is also a great way to maintain your roof correctly. Dead leaves from rainwater gutters and valleys, if not cleaned, can cause difficulties along the way as increased rainwater can worsen the drainage problem.
If climbing the ladder to the roof is not for you, feel free to call the Fixins Home Services Specialist for basic maintenance.
- Repairing Leaks
Roofs may start leaking for several reasons. Some of the most common problems occur in places where flashings are installed incorrectly or need to be amplified. In roof basins, which allow water to flow into the sewer, they should always flash properly. However, flashing cracks near the valleys or around the skylight can cause large leaks.
We can fix the cause of a leak with quick troubleshooting. Regardless of the problem with the roof, be it condensation from the attic or problems with shingles, we’ll patch it up as soon as possible.
- Eliminating Damage By Falling Debris
For roofs near or under a tree with heavy limbs, the fall of debris is unavoidable. Especially after a significant storm, tree limbs would bounce, fall on the roof, and cause severe damage. Falling tree branches and limbs over the roof may cause minor damage to shingles or more damage to the roof portion.
Other debris damage can occur from organic materials that are not as serious as woodpeckers but are just harmful. When the residue (such as leaves and branches) gets collected on the roof’s top, it starts to rot and can cause significant damage to the roof.
When moisture is trapped under dead leaves, mold or algae can leave dark spots over the roof.
We have the best roofers that will do their best to make you our satisfied customer. We get your work done quickly and efficiently as much as possible, respecting your wealth. Our excellent support system is here to help you at every step and maximize your experience.
Our Shingle Roof Repair Company in Colorado Can Fix The Following Issues:
Leaks: A leaking shingle is one of the most common repair situations we face. In most cases, leaks occur on or around the flashing part that may be caused due to improper mounting during installation. At other times, leakages occur due to a lack of a proper moisture barrier.
Blowing: Improperly fixed flashing can rapidly form seams and laps. Free-standing seams are susceptible to wind and moisture intrusion, loosening shingles and allowing strong winds to blow the roof.
Curled Shingles: If the hot moisture-filled air doesn’t find the proper ventilation in your home, it will be trapped in decking as hot air commonly rises up. Mold can often form, which causes the edges of the shingle to be stretched. If the curling is minor, the roof may flatten them, although heavy curling shingles usually need replacing.
Ponding: A flat roof with and without slope, also known as a “dead level” roof, can accumulate catches, especially after heavy rain. It is often necessary to remove these ponds and, more importantly, locate the source (if not heavy rain) of the water to prevent leaks and other damage.
Shoddy Workmanship: All roof repair problems often result from poor installation work. A typical situation is that the roofing company does not decompose, dry, and prime the area before installation, leading to premature aging.
Improper repair: If the roofers do not give their maximum time to do the roofing work properly or use low-quality materials, they can worsen the problem. Therefore, choosing a roofer with an excellent reputation for providing top-quality shingle repair service in Colorado is necessary.
Be confident that Fixins Home Services will quickly and effectively overcome these and other roofing problems. We also can undo the inappropriate repair work done by even less competent other roofing repair companies.
FAQs Related to Shingle Roofing Installation and Repair
What Is The average cost of repairing a shingle roof in 2021
There is no average cost to repair shingles. In our experience, most roof repairs cost between $300 and $1,500 if the problem is diagnosed and treated on time. Like our roof maintenance program, each roof repair price is different and varies from roof to roof. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
How Quickly Can You Repair The Shingle?
We can usually come out within 3-5 business days. Both the call and depending on the severity of the problem are considered a priority.
Can I Do Anything At The Time of Raining?
If you can go inside the attic, the best solution is to place a bucket under the drip. If a water pipe leaks around, place a towel on top of the plastic around the pipe’s bottom. Otherwise, keep a bucket under the drip until the rain stops, and a roofer will come to inspect the problem.
