Roof Repair Services
#1 Expert Roof Repair Services Chicagoland | AB Edward Enterprises, Inc.
Roof repair services are usually required at some point during the lifespan of any roof no matter what material it is. Damage from storms and hail, UV rays, and even regular wear and tear can cause leaks and other problems with your roof and home. If you notice any signs of a damaged roof it’s crucial that you contact a roofing contractor right away to prevent further damage from occurring. Roof repair services can also save you from having to replace the entire roof.
Roof Materials we Repair
Over the years, we have developed the ability to use many roofing technologies and materials, including:
Each type of roof material requires special care if repairs are going to last long and be effective against the elements. Particular ways of removing and laying replacement shingles, special tools and solvents to remove fungus and moss, and uniquely formulated sealants all need to be considered when repairing your roof – and a licensed contractor will know and understand how to best use and apply these products.
Roof repair services that are high quality can be hard to find – so call us today! Our years of expertise in the roofing industry mean we know and understand the intricacies of your roofing structure and will be able to repair it to the highest standard possible.
We will be happy to come to your house and assess the damage to your roof and home before providing you with a quote for work that needs to be completed. Once we complete the work, we can also advise you on the best ways to keep your roof healthy and damage free for as long as possible!
Whether you have a slate, cedar or asphalt roof, all roofing needs maintenance to avoid future repairs. Even if your roof shows no signs of damage, it is important to maintain it and continue regular inspections. This works exactly the same as periodic inspections of your car. Regular maintenance checks will give you and your roof contractor a better idea of what will need to be repaired, when, approximately how much longer your roof will last, and help extend the life of your roof by ensuring it is always in good repair.
Without these inspections, it is much easier for mold, moisture and insects to cause damage to your roof. Lack of roof inspections also allows storm damage or impacts from hail and trees to go unnoticed, exposing your home to significant damage. If you live in Chicagoland, regular checks are especially important – the moisture from the lake, the large number of trees and the regular hailstorms during the summer season put your roof under heavy use.

Roof Repair Services
When it’s time for roof repair services the signs are usually obvious. Your home will have leaks, there will be loose, broken, or missing shingles, fungus may be growing on your roof, and shingles may be cracked. You will probably be able to detect the leak by the musty smell as well.
Sometimes parts of shingles will even get stuck in your gutters or get washed off your house completely. If any of these issues is observed it’s important to contact a trusted roofing contractor like A.B. Edward to fix the damage before it spreads and potentially causes structural damage to your home – which is even more expensive and time-consuming to fix! The sooner you act, the better. Damage to roofs due to aging progresses gradually, and its effects become more severe over time. If you hold off on repairing your roof for an extended period of time, you may need to replace it, and sometimes even extensively rebuild your attic.
Roof repair may seem easy and simple to do on your own, but calling a licensed roofing contractor is the only way to be sure there is not hidden damage to your roof. A roofing professional is also the best way to make sure your repairs are done correctly, last long, and don’t cause any other damage to your roof. Slate and cedar in particular require special attention and care, and should only be worked on by experts as they break more easily than asphalt. Our roof repair experts will happily provide you with a quote and breakdown of work that will need to be done once they visit your home to inspect the damage.
Let's Talk About Your Project
Depending on the type of roof, its age and the location of the house, inspections will need to be at different frequencies. If you live in an old house with a cedar roof, the suggested frequency is about once a year.
If you live in a dry area and your roof has asphalt shingles, an inspection once every three years will be perfectly adequate.
Keep in mind, however, that it’s also a good idea to call in the specialists after heavy hailstorms – it may turn out that the weather has caused minor damage, which may, however, worsen over time.
Depending on the area of the roof, an inspection can cost $350 as well as $1,000. In most cases, however, it will be less than $500. Remember, however, that repairs may need to be made, which will raise the cost of the entire service.
Typically, we perform the roof inspection in two people, spending 2 to 4 hours at the customer’s site. If we detect any damage, we need more time to thoroughly investigate the problem. In some situations, we spend up to 8 hours on the roof.
If a roof inspection reveals damage, repairs may be necessary. Depending on a number of factors, such as the surface area, material and shape of the roof, a roof repair service can cost either $500 or $8,000. No one can tell from a distance exactly what needs to be improved on your roof, so an accurate quote can only be obtained after an inspection.
If possible, it is advisable to hold off on repairing the roof until summer – longer days, higher temperatures and less chance of precipitation will make the results of our work more durable. However, if there is damage that requires immediate repair, do not suggest the time of year – a good example would be damage resulting from snow accumulation or fallen trees. In such situations, don’t even think for a moment – have roof repair services done as soon as possible.
