Has your roof lost its old reliability and appeal? Are you being told constantly by roofing companies that you need to get it replaced?

Wait. Don’t make up your mind yet. APD Roofing - Best and top-rated quality roofers are there to help you.

Every year, Americans spend thousands of dollars on roof replacements when a simple repair could have prolonged its life by 5-10 years.

Before you go about signing a cheque, here are a few ways you can get your roof repaired without spending a fortune.

Do you need to repair your roof?

APD Roofing - The 5 star rated roofing company has an answer. We understand that your safety is the priority which is why it’s best to know when you can repair a roof and when you just can’t.

You can do a few of these quick tests by yourself.

Quick Corner Bend Test

To test an asphalt shingle roof’s condition, bend over a corner of one or two shingles on the sunniest side of the roof. If they break easily rather than flex and appear to be discolored, it might be time to get a new one.

Flex Test

The other way which works only for flat 3-tan shingles is to roll over the entire shingle and see whether it flexes or breaks.

But sometimes, these tests might not be enough to give you a comprehensive idea about the condition of your roof. To get a detailed evaluation, get in touch with APD Roofing - the quality roofing services, and find the best fit for your home.

How can I repair my roof?

Roof Repair is hardly a DIY project and it is better to leave it to the experts like APD Roofing - The Residential roofing company. However, having an idea about the different methods of repair can help you identify whether your roofing company is dependable or not.

Replace roof shingles

The difficulty, however, lies in finding the right shingle for your roof to match the color. Your best bet is to find leftover shingles from the last construction or you can get new ones similar to the shingles of your roof from your local store which is where we come in.

All you need is a caulking gun. Just apply the caulk to the edges of the curled shingle and press on it with a brick. Leave it there to dry and voila! You’re curled shingles should look good as new.

Fix cracked shingles

While not as pestering as curled shingles, cracked shingles can often lead to leaks in your roof if not addressed properly.

Luckily, there is an easy way to fix it without ruining the curb appeal of your roof.

All you need is some sealant and granules from the shingles which can often be found on your gutter.

Just pour the sealant on top of the cracked roof shingles and cover it up with the shingle granules.
