Roof Repair Deer Park

One of the most important things to remember is that if your roof has 3 layers, then you have to tear off the entire roof.  This is a state law. According to Illinois, there are only 2 layers of roofing allowed. Therefore, if you have an older home it is important to know how many times the roof has been redone. If you notice any of the warning signs on your roof, then it is time to consider whether it is better to repair or replace your roof.

If you are under that threshold then you might be a candidate for roof repair instead of replacement.  While you can always choose to repair a roof yourself, however, it is better to rely on a professional roofing repair service in your area. Dickson Contractors has been serving Deer Park, Illinois with the best roof services since 1987!

What a Repair Repair Entails:  If the repair is only going to fix one problem, whereas replacement gives your home better safety, then always choose replacement every time.  It is important to make sure that your family and our belongings are safe for the future.  However, if it is a minor repair, that doesn’t compromise the structural integrity of your roof, then choose to repair the situation.

The timing of the project:  We know the brutal winters the Deer Park Illinois area can have. Therefore the time of season should also be a point of wondering whether you should repair or replace.  The best time for roof repair, replacement, or installation is March through November.

Cost v ROI:  Cost of the repair might be cheaper than replacing the whole roof. However, if you are considering moving soon or if you are looking at different roofing styles than the one you currently have, a new roof is actually more affordable because a new roof is a great selling point for your future home.

Signs Your Home Needs A New Roof

  1. Leaks:  In the event you are experiencing leaks, water spots, or visible holes call us right away. Our roofing experts will come and inspect your roof to make sure it is still safe. We will also be available to address the issue and provide a repair that day in many instances.
  2. Cracked Shingles:  Along with missing shingles, curling shingles, cracked shingles are just as serious a warning sign that you should consider getting a roof replacement.
  3. Moss or Dark Streaks: If you have a moss covered roof, even if you like the aesthetic look, you can be opening yourself up to more problems.  Moss in between the shingles can actually hold moisture which in turn will actually damage the roof more. Dark Streaks are a major sign that you have an airborne algae growing. This algae can be just has harmful and destructive as moss.
  4. Bald Spots: If your roof has several bald spots, where there are missing shingles you should definitely consider getting a professional roofing service to come out and inspect your roof.
  5. Curled shingle edges: If you notice the edges of your shingles curling up, or if you notice the shingle tabs are cupped, then this is a good indication that you should consider getting your roof replaced.
  6. Age: If your roof is at least 18 years old then you should call a professional roofing service to inspect your roof immediately.  After 18 years roofs start to break down and lose its ability to hold their integrity.
  7. Nuisance Wildlife Problem: If you have recently had any animals residing in your attic call us today! In many cases, the animal may have chewed their way in leaving a whole for another animal to find.

Working with Dickson has been wonderful. We received new windows and siding on the 2nd floor of our home and we have received nothing but compliments on the work. Jim (the project manager) constantly checked in on the job and was available to answer questions when needed. The crew was professional and hardworking. The price was incredibly reasonable. We plan to use them again for the second phase of our exterior remodeling.

Great Job

I wanted to make sure you were aware of the project that Mark completed. First It was a rough idea by a grizzled old coot. And Mark made it happen just like I wanted, only maybe a little better.

Mark did a great job and I am very appreciative.
