Roof Repair in Stockton & Central California
Lack of proper roof repair and roof maintenance can lead to premature deterioration of your roof. Along with improper roofing installation, these are the greatest causes of roof problems. This is particularly true of relatively low-sloped roofs, as they are more susceptible to roof leaks. Regular roof inspections are the best way to avoid surprise roof issues.
We are proud to offer roof repair in the San Joaquin County.
Of course we use a variety of materials in our work and one of the products we depend on regularly for roof repair is Geocel 25300 Instant Roof Repair.
Shake Roof Repair / Restoration
We do quite a few shake roof repairs every year, and if a roof qualifies, we love the shake roof restoration roof repair process.
The cedar shake roofs, when restored, always come out looking great and it is a good value for the customer.
Tile Roof Repairs
We do more tile roof repairs than any other type because tile roofs commonly develop roof leaks from debris accumulating on top of the roof surface. This is primarily around flashings or under the roof tiles, near roof vent or roof valley flashings.
Flat Roof Repair
Flat roof repair and new flat roof installations can be difficult. Many companies no longer do flat roofing because they can be problematic and the experience levels in the labor pool have dwindled in the last few years. We have continued to train people in flat roofing and will continue to do so going forward.
Composition Shingle Roof Repairs
Nowdays the most common roofing work in Central California is what is called a “shake conversion” where the popular shake roof from the 70’s and 80’s is removed, plywood is installed over the spaced roof sheathing, normally a layer of 30 lb. roofing felt and then dimensional composition shingles are installed.
Because shake roofs were considered “breatheable” and composition shingles are not, an attic ventilation upgrade is required in conjunction with the new roofing. A roofing contractor should automatically include this upgrade.
Holes In Stucco Let Water Damage Interior Walls
Over a few years, the gutter end will leak or condensate. Once the gutter is removed, you can see the gaping hole in the stucco that leads right into the building’s interior sheetrock.
Are your rain gutters embedded into the stucco?
This is something we see all of the time. If you cannot see space between the gutter and the wall, then they are embedded. When houses are built, if the gutter guy happens to show up before the stucco guy, he will install the gutter end tight against the wood framing, then the stucco guy stuccos it in.
New Stucco Fixes Leak At Wall
The hole has been filled with new stucco (not stucco patch), the gutter shortened and the gutter end is now separated from the wall. Problem solved. No more roof leaks!
