Residential roofs in Southern California are made from a broad range of materials, including include asphalt composition shingles, clay or concrete tiles, slate, wood shingles and shakes, plastic polymer shingles and metal. Some homes have flat roofs covered in materials such as tar and gravel, modified bitumen, or a rubber membrane. Depending on the type of material in use, you can expect your home’s roof to last anywhere from roughly 20 years to 50 years or longer. However, any residential roof can develop damage that diminishes its usefulness and produces a need for timely repair. Common sources of such damage include extreme weather events, falling tree limbs, age-related wear and tear, poor roof maintenance, and improper or substandard roof installation.
At Tom Byer, we have decades of experience repairing all forms of residential roofing damage. Whether your home has a peaked roof or a flat roof, we can work successfully on the type of material you have installed. In all cases, we use our expertise to assess the problems you’re facing and develop a cost-effective repair plan that restores the function of your roof while keeping your costs in check.
Commercial and Industrial Repairs
Commercial and industrial properties in the region also have roofs made from a wide variety of materials, including everything from sheet metal or metal panels to modified bitumen and coatings made from silicone, acrylic, foam or rubber. As a rule, these materials are designed to withstand daily exposure to the elements for extended periods of time. Still, like residential roofs, roofs on commercial properties will eventually develop damage and fail. The same issues likely to produce damage in residential structures (e.g., extreme weather, poor maintenance and advancing age) are likely to produce problems in commercial roofs.
Tom Byer also has extensive experience making roof repairs for apartment complexes, office buildings and other commercial properties, as well as industrial properties. The requirements for these jobs are quite diverse, and we take the time to carefully map out our approach before proceeding with a lasting repair that restores your roof to top working condition. In every situation, we customize our repairs to the specific types of materials used in commercial and industrial roof construction.
In many situations, roof damage is limited enough to make a repair a viable option. However, if the damage to your roof or its underlying structure is extensive, it may make more sense to opt for a replacement instead of a repair. You may also choose a replacement over a repair if the repair process will detract significantly from the visual appeal of your home or commercial property. During the reroofing process, new roofing materials can sometimes be applied over the top of your existing, damaged roof. However, some jobs call for a complete removal of the existing material before replacement work begins.
The professionals at Tom Byer can help you determine if roof replacement is a better option than roof repair. If replacement is the appropriate choice, we can develop a cost-effective plan that returns your roof to good working order without exceeding your budget. Next, we’ll perform the replacement with quality materials that will stand up to the elements for decades to come.
Roof Leak Repair
A leak is one of the most likely problems to appear in a residential, commercial or industrial roof. Unfortunately, once they occur, leaks can be difficult to track down, since they often produce interior problems that don’t match up directly with the actual location of the problem in your roofing material. At Tom Byers, we’re experts at identifying and tracking down all kinds of roof leaks. Once we pinpoint the location of your leak, we call on any one of a number of specialized techniques to address the problem and prevent future water infiltration.
In Southern California and other parts of the country, termites are a common source of serious damage in roofs made from wood. It takes a skilled professional to determine the true extent of termite damage and devise an appropriate plan for repair or replacement. The experts at Tom Byers have decades of experience restoring roofs in the aftermath of termite infestations. Whether you’ve gone through minor or major termite problems, we’ll create and carry out a plan that brings back your roof’s structural integrity. We also apply the same level of skill to the repair/replacement needs associated with other forms of wood damage.
Roof inspections are sometimes required by insurance companies for new policies or policy renewals. If you fail to get an inspection, or fail to pass an inspection, your insurance provider may not approve your application. Tom Byers provides detailed inspections that answer all relevant questions about your roof’s condition.
Serious roofing problems can occur at any time of day or night. In this type of situation, the prompt arrangement of a repair or replacement may be crucial to your ability to safeguard the condition of your home or keep your business open. At Tom Byers, we can arrange for emergency repairs that address your roofing issues at the earliest possible opportunity.
