Normally, you can avoid most of the common issues that a roofing system has.
Water damage and leaks tend to grow at a slow rate over time and could end up costing you a great deal of money if you don’t immediately contact a roof repair professional to take care of the problem. The best kind of roof maintenance is having inspections and preventative maintenance done regularly.
Should You Call A Professional Roofer?
You might notice that your roof has a leak in it, so you climb up on the roof to check it out, and see there are numerous weak spots all across the structure of the roof.
You might start panicking and start wondering how you let everything get so bad.

Key Danger Signals For Your Roof
The best thing to do is to have your roof repaired before the problems become more serious. Here are a few warning signs that you should watch for to avoid having to pay for costly roof repairs:
If there are any wet or damp spots in your attic after a hard rain, then that can indicate the shingles might be starting to get brittle and you have shingles that are old or leaky.
If you see any paint that is peeling or blistering, that might indicate that there is poor ventilation in your attic. You may need to increase or replace the ventilation source that you currently have.
If there are any shingles missing from your roof, or they are curled or cracked, this may indicate that it’s time to consider getting a roof replacement before the problem gets too bad.
There are some other signs in addition to the ones that are mentioned above, however, these are the ones that are the most common ones that you should look out for.
We can upgrade the shingle roof that is currently on your house and will enable us to offer a longer warranty period on the roofing products and labor that we use.
Southern Star Roofing would like to assure you that as our client we completely understand what is needed by your roof and exactly what your roofing professionals in Charlotte will do to ensure that your roof is like it is brand new once again.
Roof Repair Steps
Inspection: The first step in the roof repair inspection is to assess your roof to see if it is a good candidate to be repaired. Some roofs are in too bad of shape for repairs to save them, and others only need minor repairs. This involves visually inspecting your roof for damage, dry rotted pipes and sealant, and look for any hidden water damage or the buildup of moisture.
Preparation: For a roof repair, we strive to match any replaced shingles the best as is possible in color, make and style. Since fading and weather affects the aging of shingles, not all repairs are a perfect match to new shingles. We ensure the best possible match. Roof repairs often include the replacement of pipe boots and sealant which can dry rot over time.
Repairs: This is the most critical phase in the process. During the repair, the problem areas of the roof are treated. Any replacement of damages shingles, flashing, rotten plywood, pipe boots take place. As determined in the Inspection phase, any additional waterproofing weather barrier may be installed.
If you have your roof repaired before any issues are prolonged, you may be able to extend the life to your existing roof. The only one who will know for sure whether your roof is able to be repaired is your local roofing company. If you think that your roof may need to be repaired or have questions, you can fill out our contact form or call us at Southern Star Roofing to see what we can do for you!
We offer complete residential roof assessments including reports, photos, damage conclusions, and repair recommendations with regards to hail & wind damage assessments. All of our roof consultants are knowledgeable and have had years of inspection experience. We specialize in residential roof assessments including a variety of services catered to meet the needs of the following:
Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover storm damage to roofs. Our staff at Southern Star Roofing will walk you through the claims process step-by-step and handle all of the hard work to make sure your home gets the attention it needs.
Call us as soon as you detect any sign of a leak. This may include stains anywhere on walls or ceilings and especially around fireplaces and other roof penetrations, such as exhaust vents. The sooner you can address the leak, the less likely you will experience additional internal damage to sheathing and sheet rock or other building structure.
3-Tab and Architectural style shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America mainly because they are economical and versatile, work well on steep-sloped roofs, are sunlight and weather resistant, require little-to-no maintenance and are reasonably priced. In addition, asphalt shingles are also easy to cut, fasten, and fit, as well as being compatible with many different kinds of flashing and edging products. While there are several types of asphalt shingles, at Southern Star Roofing, we generally recommend architectural shingles because they are reasonably priced and offer great durability along with an extended warranty
Standing seam metal roofs have become enormously popular, and are especially suiting for homes located on lakes and mountain settings due to its longevity. Metal roofs are durable, fire-resistant, and provide an excellent strength to weight ratio which is why they are often used for very large buildings, stadiums, and other commercial structures. New metal roofing materials offer a stylish assortment of color and designs.
Flat Roofs/Rubber Roofs (EPDM AND TPO)
EPDM and TPO are great solutions for those difficult low slope or even flat areas. These single ply roofing systems can be installed relatively easy over large or small areas. Flat roofs are increasingly common for commercial buildings, apartments, sunrooms, garages, porches, and even single-family homes.
Tile & Slate Roofing
A tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass. Tile is a great roofing material for many reasons: it is strong, durable, and waterproof meaning that it isn’t vulnerable to rot as other shingles can be. Tile also offers great fire protection and comes in many shapes and colors for the artistic minded buyer. Tile and slate provide an aesthetic appeal difficult to match.
Cedar shakes have long been a roofing solution that satisfies both requirements for beauty and durability in a roof. They are especially appropriate where historical preservation is a priority. Cedar shakes make a great roofing solution when rustic beauty and a natural appearance is the client’s priority.
