Roof Repair: Preserving Your Home's Protection
Your roof is your home’s primary barrier against the elements, safeguarding your comfort, protecting your possessions, and maintaining your property value. It’s essential to address roof repairs promptly to keep your roof performing optimally. Here’s an extensive guide to roof repair, Conner Roofing’s thorough process, and why swift action is crucial.
What is Roof Repair?
Roof repair focuses on diagnosing and mending specific areas of roof damage. Repair objectives generally include:
- Waterproofing: Sealing leaks and ensuring proper water shedding to prevent damage to your structure, insulation, and interior.
- Replacement of Damaged Materials: Repairing broken, missing, or curled shingles, or addressing larger compromised areas.
- Structural Repairs: Depending on the severity, this might include repairs to underlying components like sheathing, rafters, or trusses.
- Ventilation Improvements: Evaluating and potentially correcting attic ventilation for optimal airflow to prevent heat and moisture buildup.
- Flashing Fixes: Repairing or replacing compromised flashing that seals critical roof areas around chimneys, valleys, and protrusions.

What People Have to Say About Us
Our chimney needed rebuilt and flashing added and they did a fabulous job on everything. The crew had it all done in one day and was very through with the clean up. Chris came out to communicate the progress during the day of the job and was wonderful through the whole process. Five stars - 10/10 company that will recommend to anyone needing work done on their roof.
Thanks again for your honest bid, communication, awesome crew and pristine work.
The owner, Rob, was extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to and made a recommendation (modified bitumen) for our flat roof that he said should completely take care of our leak.
His crew that came out to complete the work were punctual, friendly, professional and showed us photos of their work at the very end. Above all, they did a phenomenal job because it’s been over a year now with some torrential rains and our roof is still completely dry.
We now have a go-to roofing company and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Conner to others. Honest, dependable and solid workmanship.
They had done some minor work for us over the years with missing shingles, Dish satellite removal from roof and repair, always with prompt service. When it came time for the full roof to be replaced, Rob at Conner Roofing was my first call. Their bid was very competitive, they use quality products and have one of the best warranties out there in the St. Louis/St. Charles market. The team that put on the new roof did a fantastic job plus they covered our bushes, deck and other areas to ensure no damage. When they left for the day, the roof was perfect and the yard was spotless of any roofing debris.
Excellent, quality work.
I highly recommend Conner Roofing.
Thanks Rob and everyone at Conner Roofing you guys are the BEST!
Common Causes of Roof Damage
These factors highlight the need for regular roof assessments and proactive repairs:
- Severe Weather: Extreme storms, including wind, hail, and heavy rain or snow, can cause physical damage or accelerate natural wear and tear.
- Age and Wear: All roofs inevitably degrade. Exposure to sun, temperature fluctuations, and freeze/thaw cycles takes its toll over time.
- Poor Maintenance: Lack of regular inspections, gutter cleaning, and minor repairs leads to premature or even preventable damage.
- Tree and Wildlife Damage: Falling branches can penetrate or otherwise harm a roof, and some animals can loosen or directly damage materials.
- Installation Errors: Poor workmanship in the original roofing might create weakness that becomes problematic years later.
Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Repair
How do I know if I need roof repair? Watch for leaking, damaged or missing shingles, signs of water staining indoors, unexplained increases in shingle granules in gutters, or visible deterioration or damage when evaluating your roof.

How much will a roof repair cost? Repair costs are highly variable. The type of roof, scale of repairs, material costs, labor time, and the roof’s accessibility all have an impact.
