Serving the City of Los Alamitos
Four walls and a roof: that is all you need to have for a home. And out of those, we often think of the roof as the most important. We don’t talk about having walls around us, but we do talk about having a roof over our heads.
This emphasis is quite natural. The roof of your home or business is what protects everything inside and holds the structure together. When it is compromised, so is the habitability of the home and the viability of the business. In essence, when your roof isn’t perfect, nothing else is.
If you believe there might be an issue with your roof, do not wait. Instead, call us at Tom Byer Roofing. We can determine what the root cause is and fix it while repairing the damage. Remember, it’s better to catch it early than to wait until it’s too late.
Residential Roof Repairs
Repairing the roof of your home is one of those things every homeowner dreads, but will ultimately need to do. How often will you need to do this? It will vary based on the material used, the quality of the construction, and how much you have worked to maintain it. The average lifespan for a residential roof is about 25 years, but some will last as many as 50; you can figure that during those years, you will need to repair your roof several times.
Even with excellent construction and care, the lifespan of your roof can be shortened by everything from fire to severe weather. So when you need roof repair, call us at Tom Byer Roofing. We have been repairing residential roofs for more than 60 years. During these decades, we have become experienced with all roofing materials common to Los Alamitos, and we are confident we can repair your roof.
Commercial and Industrial Roofing Repair
Commercial and industrial buildings generally use different roofing materials than residential buildings. Some of the materials commonly used include modified bitumen, metal panels, and sheet metal. In most cases, the roofs also include an extra layer specifically for weatherproofing, such as rubber membranes, acrylic, or silicone. This means that if you are looking for repair for a commercial or industrial building, you need a team that specializes in them. Luckily, the Tom Byer team does.
While these roofs are designed to last a long time, they won’t last forever, and they will have problems similar to those found in residential roofs. We can repair all types of residential and industrial roofing, including those on apartment complexes. Call us as soon as you notice something is wrong so we can remedy the issue before it gets too big.
Whenever possible, we will repair your roof rather than opt for replacement. We know that replacing a roof can be a major expense, and also a major inconvenience. However, sometimes it is a necessity.
One option we will consider is reroofing. With this, we go over the materials already in place and use the supports that are already there. If the supports are damaged, the only course of action available to us is to replace the roof. Whenever possible, we will go the most conservative route, but we will always prioritize safety and structural integrity over all else. Once you agree with our plan of action, we will get to work and give you a roof that will keep your building sealed and safe.
Leaky Roof Repair
Out of the various services we offer, this is the one we are called about the most. All roofs develop leaks. The key to preventing it from turning into a major repair or roof replacement is catching them early and getting them fixed. Since it’s hard to find the source of a leak, you need to work with a professional team, like Tom Byer Roofing. We have the expertise and tools needed to find out where the leak originates and remedy it quickly.
Termite and Wood Damage
While Los Alamitos is a lovely place to live, not so lovely is the fact that termites thrive here. These insects are more than just an annoyance; they can put your family in danger. Most residential roofs use wood as their support material, and if termites get inside the roof supports, they can literally bring your roof down.
If you suspect that there could be termites in any spot of your home, call an exterminator and then have us come out to assess your roof. We will be able to see if any termites were even in the roof and will let you know if any still remain. At this time, we can also figure out if your roof can be repaired to compensate for the damage or if replacement will be needed.
After a termite infestation, always work with a professional contractor. This is a situation where there is simply too much at risk and you cannot take a chance with someone who is inexperienced. The Tom Byer team has been addressing termite damage in residential roofs for over six decades. We know which solutions are best and can deliver them to you.
In certain situations, homeowner’s insurance policies will request that you have a roof inspection completed before they will opt to renew your policy or before they will issue you a new one. This inspection is used to determine how big of a risk insuring you will be. Based on the results, they can choose to deny coverage. We offer comprehensive roof inspections, as well as the repairs you might need in order to secure coverage.
A roofing emergency is a genuine emergency. Should you experience one, do not hesitate to call. We are available for emergency repairs at any hour, even in the dead of night. All you need to do is give us a call and explain the circumstances and we will send a team your way.
