Not all leaks, damaged or missing shingles, and dark spots on the roof mean you need a roof replacement. There is no doubt that roof repairs and maintenance are interlinked; regular maintenance will lessen the severity of the repairs. Doing small things like replacing damaged shingles and repairing leaks will extend the life and integrity of your roof.
If you notice problems, don’t wait to get an inspection! The longer these problems occur, the pricier and more extreme they could get. Here at Southline Roofing & Exteriors, we will lead you down the right path for you and your home.
Roof Repairs Are Better Taken Care Of Sooner Than Later
The most important thing to keep in mind with roof repairs is that the quicker you address them, the better. What appears to be a harmless hairline crack in a lone shingle could be a sign of additional decay issues with other shingles, as they were all (likely) installed together, and what may look like a tiny bit of mold the size of a penny could signal an impending health issue in a matter of weeks or even days. No matter what the issue seems to be with your roof, if anything seems to be out of the ordinary- don’t wait, give our team a call and get a free estimate.
Signs You Need A Roof Repair:
A good rule of thumb to remember with your roof is that the quicker you act, the quicker and less expensive the solution. An issue that you may see as small could turn into costing you thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars later on, so being vigilant is typically the best thing for you and your roof.

Roof Repair FAQ
Q: Do all roofs leak?
A: The short answer is no- no roof system ever leaks unless an item was compromised. However, if neglected, most roofs will generally become compromised from a lack of maintenance, so homeowners are advised to be proactive with their roofs.
Q: How long does it take to repair a roof?
A: Every repair is different. The amount of time a roof repair takes depends on the scope of the work and the extent of the damages.
Q: Will my shingles match if I complete a repair?
A: Due to sun exposure and fading over the years, the color of your shingles will become harder to match. Completing a repair on a roof that is older than 12 years will typically stand out significantly.
Q: What is the average cost of a roof repair?
A: Depending on the severity and complexity of the repair, small repairs can range from $425-$650, and more severe issues can range from $2,000-$3,200.
Q: Is there a warranty with my repair?
