Roof Shingle Repairs & Replacement
Have you noticed missing shingles, a leaky roof, or water stains on your ceiling after a recent storm? You probably need a residential roof repair. Elements Roofing has been repairing and replacing Northeastern Colorado’s missing and damaged shingles since 2009.
Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects your possessions and your family from the elements. It’s also one of the most exposed. Every time there’s a storm with high winds, hail, or even snow, there’s the potential you’ll need a repair.
Roofs older than 15 years are also vulnerable to simple wear and tear over time as sunlight and weather take their toll. And while many of these issues can be pretty straightforward to fix, an incorrectly done repair job can have very ugly and expensive consequences down the road.
We recommend that you visually inspect your roof once a year for wear and tear (from the safety of the ground or your attic), and after every storm – especially if hail or high winds were involved. Here’s what you should be on the lookout for: missing shingles, leaks in the attic, water-damaged siding, soffits, or fascia board. Tree limbs or other large debris on the roof is also an indication of possible damage.
If you find missing or damaged shingles, or start to notice water spots inside, call us immediately for a professional assessment of the damage and potential costs of repairs.
If not taken care of immediately, this damage will get worse over time, as each new storm brings more water to work its way into the hole or crack created by the previous storm.
The best way to prevent leaks from becoming major problems down the road is to work with a contractor to make the repairs immediately. We have the training and experience necessary to get up on your roof for a closer inspection, and to make the repairs safely and efficiently.

Do I Need a New Roof?
Some home repairs can be put off nearly indefinitely. Do not make this mistake with your leaky roof. If ignored, water damage can turn a leak requiring only a minor roof repair into a major problem that can eliminate a big chunk of your home’s value.
The main question when you see water spots on a ceiling – or worse, dripping water – is whether you can take care of it with a few repairs, or if you need to re-roof or replace your roof system entirely.
Some of the signs you may need a roof replacement or re-roofing, rather than a simple repair are if more than half the shingles are cracked or warped, if there is moss or algae growing on the roof, if you can see daylight through the roof in the attic, or if the decking is obviously sagging.
A roofing contractor can help you get a closer look at these issues, and will recommend repairs if the damage is less severe than what we laid out above.

8 Roofing Terms to Know Before Calling a Contractor
Once you’ve established that you need to contact a roofing expert, it’s important to be able to speak his language. Familiarize yourself with these terms, and you’ll never be confused about what he is telling you, and you’ll be more prepared to make an informed, educated decision about the extent of your roof shingle repair needs.
So before you pick up that phone, here are a few commonly used roofing repair terms that may be unfamiliar to a non-professional.
Decking or Sheathing – The layer of wood boards (usually plywood or OSB) attached to the rafters and trusses to which underlayment and shingles are applied.
Drip Edge – The L-shaped strip of non-corrosive metal used along roof edges that protects decking, eaves, siding and other construction elements from water runoff.
Underlayment – A sheet of felt or asphalt-saturated material (tar paper) that provides a second, moisture retardant layer of protection between the decking and shingles.
Flashing – The sheet of metal that prevents water from getting into your home through roof penetrations like vent pipes, chimneys or valleys. Usually fabricated from sheet metal and also used to weatherproof terminating roof edges.
Penetrations – Vents, pipes, stacks, chimneys-anything that requires a hole to be intentionally cut through the decking and shingles, and therefore a hotspot for leaks.
Fascia – A finished board that runs along the lower edge of the roof.
Soffit – The finished underside of an architectural roofing element, such as an arch, or an overhanging eave.
Fire Rating – Roofing materials are rated to classify their resistance to fire starting outside the house. Class A materials have the highest resistance to outside fire, followed by B and C.
