Covington, Louisiana Roofing and Roof Repair
You ask a lot of your roof. It not only needs to stand up to the rain, hail and storms of the South, but it also needs to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter while adding a beautiful exclamation point to your home’s curb appeal. But how do you know when the time is right for a new roof? How do you know when it might need repairs?
At Shifflett Roofing, our number one priority is a job well done. If your roof is in need of repair, or if it has reached the point where a full replacement is in order, we will be there to guide you through the process. Whatever it takes to ensure your roof is stable, secure and beautiful, we will do it.
And most importantly, we will give you a full and fair assessment of your roof, replacing if necessary but repairing if that’s what helps protect your home. Below are some of the more common types of roof repair we offer.
Replacing Shingles: The stress that the Louisiana sun and our wild summer storms put on your roof will show themselves first through cracking, shrinking, curling or lifting tiles. Even a handful of bad shingles can compromise the entire roof and allow water to penetrate your home, so it’s vital they be fixed as soon as possible.
Replacing Fascia: The lengthy wooden board running behind your gutters, the fascia is designed to protect your roof’s lower edges. Because of its position near your gutters, the fascia can sometimes be prone to water damage and mold growth as well as holes, cracks and animal infestation. Fascia boards can be replaced in sections or as a whole depending on the extent of the damage.
Draining Standing Water: Your roof’s sloped design should prevent areas of standing water, but over time it can sag with age and develop low-lying spots where water can collect. We will not only drain the standing water but correct these low spots to prevent the inevitable damage this water can cause.
Repairing Flashing: You’ll find flashing installed around walls, pipes and chimneys, as well as in flat areas of your roof, to divert water toward gutters. If installed improperly, this flashing can allow water to seep in underneath it, greatly accelerating roof rot.
Roof Leaks: All of the problems listed above call for quick remediation, but a leak in your roof must be fixed as soon as possible. It is not only a sign that there may be more damage elsewhere, but a leak can also allow water to penetrate your home and cause structural and foundational issues.
Roof Replacement Services
Ideally, any issues with your roof can be remedied through the repairs above. If, however, the damage is too widespread for a simple repair, it may be time to consider replacing your roof altogether.
Roof Replacement Cost
Most people are very concerned about the cost as they should be. Making an informed consumer is very important to us. The cost of a new roof depends on many variables including the size of your home, the materials used, and the labor and insurance needed to cover this very major project. Many people go for the cheapest quote, but learn afterward the hard way that the materials used were subpar and so was the workmanship. When you are purchasing a new roof, you really want to consider quality materials because they will last longer and keep you, your family, and your belongings safe through the many storms that pass-through Louisiana. After a hurricane or serious storm, you can tell which roofs were properly installed with high-quality materials. They usually don’t have a blue tarp covering the house.
With Louisiana’s unpredictable weather patterns, it means that you need a roof that you can count on. As a sizable investment in not only your home’s comfort and stability but also its curb appeal and beauty for many years to come.

Residential and Commercial Roofing

Other Important Exterior Services that We Provide
Your roof is so much more than what you see on top – it’s a comprehensive system designed to protect your home and family. We look at each component of the overall structure to ensure everything is working as it should and no one piece will compromise the entire roof.
Gutter Repair and Installation: Your gutter system is designed to move water quickly away from the roof and down into the appropriate areas. When gutters or downspouts become clogged with debris, water can overflow and cause damage to the rest of the structure.
Siding Repair and Installation: Other than your roof, your siding is your home’s best protection against the elements. If water is able to penetrate vulnerable spots in your siding, it can become trapped in your walls and spur mold growth and unseen damage inside your home. Insects and other pests can invade through these same weak spots, causing health issues within your home.
