It is very common for some form of roof repair to occur to a roofing system throughout its life-cycle. The need for roof repair in Southern California typically stems from four primary factors; the quality of the materials initially used, the quality of workmanship at the time of installation, the amount of maintenance performed on a roof throughout its life and the natural elements that the roofing system endures. Often times Chandler's Roofing can extend the useful life of a roof through simple repair. Other times, more complex roofing repairs are required due to additions to a structure such as a solar installation, AC roof penetrations, or room additions being added. These roof repairs, in most cases, require the removal of damaged materials, location of a leak or weak point in the structure and reinstallation of new materials which tie in to the existing roof. There is a significant difference between truly repairing the leak and glazing it over with a can of mastic. At Chandler's Roofing, we do not skip corners when it comes to repairs. Unlike many other roofers in Southern California, we won't even offer you a repair option if we don't truly believe your roofing system has life left in it and we can fix the problem.
Roof maintenance, also know as a roof tune-up, is required by almost every major roofing manufacturer in order to maintain a roofing system warranty. Though maintenance costs are typically the second largest expense for a building owner, if done regularly in a proactive manner, these tune-ups will drastically extend the life of a roofing system and save the property owner significantly in the long run. While some roofing systems require more maintenance than others, it is generally recognized as good practice to perform an annual maintenance on a roof. A typical roof tune-up includes removal of all debris from the roof, drains and gutters, caulking and resealing of all roof penetrations, repainting of roof flashings to protect from UV and in some cases hosing down the roof itself. Though it seems like such a simple task for a building owner, it is surprising to us how often building professionals ignore roof maintenance in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas, placing them in a much more costly and reactive position when problems occur. Don't make this costly mistake, let Chandler's Roofing put together an effective roof maintenance program to meet your budget and needs.
