St Louis Roof Repair Services
Residential Roof Repairs.
1st Choice completes over 100 St Louis roof repairs each year and we are responsible for saving our clients countless thousands of dollars each year by not replacing but repairing and maintaining their existing roofs.
Roof leaks are commonly caused by flashings that were either improperly installed or were not designed to last the entire lifespan of the roof. A good example of this is the frequently used (no-caulk) or epdm pipe flashings that are mounted at the base of soil stack flashings. These flashings are designed to last 3-5 years prior to replacement but typically last 10-14 depending on exposure due to the direction of the slope. A simple solution is to install a lead pipe flashing as either a permanent repair or a repair boot if the roof is nearing the end of its serviceable life.
We have also repaired thousands of chimney/skylight and other major penetrations in residential roofs that commonly cause interior damage. Contact us today to schedule an evaluation to see how we can extend the useable life of your current roof rather than replacing it.
Commercial Roof Repairs.
Commercial roofs are often a little trickier than residential due to various circumstances such as previous repair attempts, often low slope and hold water, frequently holding water between the cap sheet and substrate or in the substrate itself. 1st Choice production staff are very well trained and experienced and will offer the best solution available between repair types. We will usually offer 2-3 possible solutions as we realize budgets for repairs vary greatly from client to client.
When we have a client that has a commercial steep or low slope roof that is approaching the end of its serviceable life we offer Maintenance agreements to keep per hour costs lower since the client is confident they will have upcoming repairs. This also prioritizes our Maintenance customers ahead of those that just call out of the phone book, speeding up the reaction, service, and repairs for these VIP customers.
