Examples Of Improper Roof Repairs in Atlanta, Ga

These pictures show how unsightly and very ineffective from a long term perspective some home repairs can be.  Since most people don’t get on their roof,  if you choose a company that does not have a track record for making effective repairs and has the reviews and referrals to back the workmanship claims, you may end up with a repair like this one.   Many times, a homeowner may receive an estimate with a price that seems attractive, but the repair may last a month or two, and the damages can be very costly and lead to more expenses.

The pictures you see show gaps between the shingles and fascia (pictured below) that could allow water and vermin to get into the attic. In the second picture, there is a valley that has been improperly repaired.   This home belongs to an actual homeowner we visited and they actually paid someone to leave them with this mess.   In this home, the gaps needed to be sealed and the damaged area in the valley needs be ripped out and redone by installing new felt paper, ice and water shield, and then new shingles.

With a proper repair, the home could stay dry and avoid sustaining additional damage.  Good thing this homeowner sent someone else to look up there and is taking action.   The rest of the roof was fine and with these repairs, they should stay dry for years to come.dont-use-roof-cement

    I noticed shingles on my roof that have started to fall off and curl so I’ve been thinking about having it inspected. I like that you suggest finding a contractor with liability insurance. I don’t want to be responsible for any injuries or property damage so I’ll be sure to ask about this right away. Thanks for sharing.
