Roof Repairs – Home or Business

There are many types of roofs and each roof leak is unique. Some leaks may be visible at the roof surface level while others will go undetected by an trained eye, particularly on a leaking flat roof. A thorough assessment requires an experienced repair contractor with highly trained roofing inspectors to investigate and identify the extent and severity of damage to your roof system. Gallop Roofing & Remodeling, Inc. is a roofing repair company with roof inspectors who know how to examine the critical areas so proper roof repairs or replacement can be performed.

Roof Repair Causes

Most roof leaks/repairs are similar in nature and are due to the same types of problems. These include:

  • Blown off or missing shingles — Regardless of the material they’re made of, shingles are prone to lifting up due to high winds. Lighter materials suffer from this more than heavier ones, but even heavy asphalt shingles can peel up and blow away, leaving your underlayment and roof deck exposed to the elements.
  • Bad or leaking pipe flashing — The vent pipes on your roof sit underneath your roof material. They are usually well-sealed, but corrosion of the pipe flashing or of the sealant can allow water to seep through to the interior.
  • Chimney/skylight step flashing — Chimney flashing can leak if high winds pull it away from your chimney or roof, or if the sealant is compromised. Skylights are trickier to diagnose. What looks like a leak can just be condensation. However, a cracked skylight or worn seals can allow leaks to form.
  • Valleys — Valleys are the little gutters that run down interior angles on your roof. Flashing can be damaged by lifting tiles, fungus build up, or improper cleaning. Since the bulk of the rainwater is going to be channeled down these valleys by the laws of gravity, it’s imperative to be sure they are not damaged.
  • Ice dams — Ice dams form when melted snow refreezes on your roof. This forms walls that don’t allow other runoff to drain into your rain gutters or otherwise leave your roof.
  • Low slope/inadequate roof pitch — Low slope roofs are susceptible to wind damage almost as much as flat roofs. They also often don’t provide good run-off in regions that see a lot of rain.
  • Leak damage can occur for a number of reasons such as lack of maintenance, weathering, wind damage, improper design or installation, and/or flashing failures.

If you notice any of these signs, you should call a roofing specialist immediately to get the problem fixed.

The company returned my phone call promptly and had a tech at my house the next day. Provided a fare repair quote and had the repair crew at the house the following day. Kept us updated during the repair, cleaned up afterwards and fixed the leak the first time. Thank you !

Had the best experience with this company. Bud and his assistant helped with getting our new hot tub up on our deck in Kitty Hawk. Not only did they do a good job - they went above and beyond in helping us get it in the right spot which took a little patience and manuvering. They were so helpful we can't thank them enough.

My overall experience has been very positive. You can judge the character of a company by the way they quickly address issues that arise. I suppose most jobs go off without a hitch, but I had a minor issue arise after I paid for the job in full. Everyone I dealt with, starting with my salesman Devon, demonstrated Gallop's commitment for standing behind their work. I'll use Gallop again, and I will easily be able to recommend them.

Took us a couple of phone calls and pictures being sent back and forth but the finished project was great. Daniel and crew were wonderful to work with at the job site and Stephanie was my go to at the office. I can't say enough good things about our experience and the work. Call them, very reasonable.
