Quality Roofing repairs & Roofing Caulk vs. Roofing cement  

Why choosing who you hire matters!

    There are so many different ways to repair a roof to stop it from leaking.  Let me mention that just simply applying some black tar or caulk around a certain area is only a temporary fix.   In many cases in just a few months, or a year or two the roof could be leaking again.  However, there are ways to make repairs like a "roofing professional" or like "a fly by night contractor " to a roofing leak.   (The integrity of the company I run is far more important to me than just making an extra buck.)

    The best way is to hire a roofing professional that really has a good idea on how to do things in the proper fashion.  A professional roofing consultant should be able to make a good explanation on the best way and only way to repair your home before he gives you and estimate 

     Another way to make repairs is to simply repair the roof by the simple answer, "just add tar or roofing cement".   Seems like a great idea and if you are on a tight budget it might work for a short-term but the reliability is very unpredictable.  Any contractor that offers you this type of service I would be cautious in whether or not they are doing the right thing for the investment of my home?      

     Although, I know that choosing a roofing contractor is not always as easy as pie.  Silver Fox Roofing & Remodeling LLC is here to help you with your roofing repair needs.  We have made roofing repairs affordable compared to the competition.  In addition, you are going to get a professional consultation on the entire integrity of your roof from inside in out.  I will talk about attic inspection at a later date.   

Nobody wants to make multiple repairs to the same spot, "Do it right the first time!"

Plumbing vents are often a problem for homeowners because they tend to leak for many of different reasons. 

I took this picture while inspecting a roof and found this messy roofing cement will little to no purpose.

Roofing Cement Vs. Caulk 


  • The color is usually black (hardly ever matches the roof and devalues the curb appeal in some cases)
  • Extremely messy and hard to clean up
  • Often cracks due to heat in a short period of time causing it to leak again. 
  • Often permanent and cause more damage if a repair is needed in that area.  

Caulk (NP1 a polyurethane product in paticular)

  • Color can match the color of the roof to keep curb appeal 
  • Simply easier to clean up and be neat
  • Can handle heat a lot better than roofing cements
  • Also is very pliable for future repairs  

      Although, roofing cement is great for a cheap solution if you are on a budget.  However,  for a few dollars more you can use NP1 type product like found at Home Depot.   Caulk or cement is also a great solution for someone that has no idea of what they are doing.  Caulk is supposed to be used after re-flashing or repairing an area properly.  Things like exposed nails, underneath broken sealed shingles, and other areas for additional protection.  Caulk is not meant to be the main line of defense.  

    If you have a roofing leak,  give Silver Fox Roofing & Remodeling LLC a call.  We would love to help you!

    Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
