Roof repair and roof maintenance go hand in hand, as good maintenance will limit the scope of repair jobs. Minor tasks such as sealing leaks and replacing damaged shingles will preserve the life of your roof and maintain its quality. Additionally, it's often possible to put off the major expense of total roof replacement by making small spot repairs as necessary.

This Homeowner contacted us because they were experiencing problems with ice damns. Our Certified Expert determined that the best solution would be to install copper panels.
For this job in Concord, Ma we converted a piece of roof that had been developing severe ice damns to rubber. Directly beneath this piece of roof was heater that had been causing snow to form ice damns, by swapping this part of the roof to rubber we helped mitigate any damage that would be caused by the back up.
For this project we had to replace several broken slates on this dormer in Weston. Our crew replaced the slates and installed copper along the edge of the dormer too. While the new copper gives the slates a beautiful new accent, but it will also help keep the dormer watertight and have these homeowners leak free for years to come.
Repalced the flashing around the pipe and added a cap.
Tile roofs are relatively rare occurence in the northeast, however we do still come across them. In this situation an improperly installed valley had caused leaking and damage to the home below. We replaced the valley to prevent any further damage on this home in Lexington, Ma. It also looks much better than the original solution!
Even excellent maintenance work can't prevent roof damage that occurs because of severe weather and freak accidents. Emergency roof repairs are often necessary when a building is exposed to high winds and impacts from falling trees.
Of course, some emergency roof repairs, including roof leak repair, can be avoided by preventative work such as roof snow removal to prevent ice damming and roof collapse due to snow loading. When emergency roof repairs are necessary, call GF Sprague for a fast, effective solution.
The type of roofing material creates different challenges for roof repair work. For example, asphalt shingles, wood shingles, concrete tiles, and clay tiles often have damage to individual shingles or tiles, meaning those pieces need replacement. Metal roofing generally comes in much larger panels, so those are only replaced when spot repairs aren't effective. Finally, flat roof repair is an entirely different process due to the rolled material and liquid waterproofing compounds.
Lifting shingles. Shingle lifting is a typical roof problem that should be repaired to prevent roof leaks and water damage.
No matter what type of roof you have, regular maintenance is very beneficial. There are several key reasons to perform consistent maintenance:
By performing regular maintenance, you can keep your roof in good condition and prolong its lifespan, saving you the hassle and expense of full roof replacement.
