Case Study - Composite Shingle Roof Repair - 1

This homeowner may not have known anything needed attention on the roof until the water damage became apparent under the roof overhang above his patio. At a casual glance, the shingles appeared to be in good shape. This is another example of why a professional roof inspection is important. With over 25 years of experience, Baaron knows how to spot trouble areas that are often missed by homeowners and less experienced contractors. Roofs with a low pitch, combined with an accumulation of leaves, twigs, and other debris are usually a red flag, and need a professional inspection to determine the condition, and extent of any needed repairs.
