Vancleave, MS is a growing Gulf Coast community that continues to gain new residents who want to escape from urban life and enjoy a more laidback lifestyle in a small and friendly coastal town. With its warm weather, Vancleave has an attractive climate, but the area is vulnerable to storms and tropical hurricanes. Homeowners in Vancleave are well-aware of the damage rain and wind can do to a house, especially to the roof. That’s why Vancleave residents depend on high-quality roofing repair services from Fortenberry Construction, a roofing company that serves the Mississippi Gulf coast.

Inspections Before Buying or Selling A Home
Home values in Vancleave, MS are continuing to increase, and homeowners are getting a good return on their investment when they sell. A roof inspection is an important first step in getting a house ready to sell, as undetected roof problems could have a big impact on a home’s selling price. If you’re getting ready to sell or buy a home, or if you have any concerns about the condition of your roof, let us come out and take a look. Our inspections are thorough, and our recommendations are based on years of experience and a high level of expertise. We talk with our customers about their options, and we work with them to come up with affordable roof repair services whenever possible.
Reliable Roof Leak Repair
If you notice water staining or coming through the ceiling of your Vancleave home, you need to get that leak repaired as soon as possible. When water is allowed to accumulate in the attic or under the roof, mold will grow and wood and other materials will break down. When we perform roof leak repair, we first determine the source of the leak by thoroughly inspecting the roof. Most often the leak occurs where there are gaps around a ventilation pipe or in a valley, but sometimes cracked or missing shingles are the culprit. Once we identify the problem, we do whatever it takes to repair the leak and reinforce the roof so that leaks will not recur.
Shingle Repair for Limited Damage
Though asphalt shingles are a durable roofing material, they’re not immune to extreme weather conditions. Heavy winds can pull shingles off the roof, for example, while strong hail can chip off a shingle’s coating of granules. Repeated freezing can create cracks in shingles that widen over time. Any damage to a shingle compromises the integrity of the roof as a whole, and that’s why shingle repair is a very important aspect of maintaining a roof. When we inspect the roof of your Vancleave home, we’ll make note of damaged shingles and either repair or replace them as needed. When shingles are cracked, they can often be repaired, and if edges are curled up, we can nail them down. If shingles are torn apart and parts are missing, however, we usually recommend replacing the torn shingles altogether.
Re-Shingling as An Alternative to Roof Replacement
Sometimes we inspect a roof in Vancleave and discover that a large percentage of shingles or a large area of the roof is damaged. In that case, we recommend either re-shingling or replacing the entire roof. Not every roof in Vancleave, MS is a good candidate for re-shingling, but if the roof is covered in just one layer of asphalt shingles, re-shingling can be a less expensive alternative to roof replacement. When we re-shingle a roof, we nail down a new layer of shingles on top of the old one. This is a very effective method of roof repair, since the underlayer of shingles, even if it’s damaged, provides an extra layer of protection.
Roof Replacement with Top-Quality Roofing Materials
In some cases, re-shingling is not the right option and home owners need to get their roof replaced. When we replace a roof in Vancleave, we help our customers select the best roofing material for their home and their needs. We use only top-quality roofing materials, and we regularly install asphalt shingles, architectural shingles, and metal roofs. While many customers choose asphalt shingles because they cost considerably less than other types of roofs, they are not the longest lasting. Some of our customers opt to replace a tile roof with a metal roof or architectural shingles in order to get more years out of their roof or to get a particular look that they find appealing. We also provide custom roofing solutions tailored specifically to a customer’s needs. If you are looking for a roofing company to replace a roof in Vancleave, give us a call and schedule a free consultation.
Quick Response to Storm Damage
When we respond to a call about storm damage in Vancleave, we know the damage is likely to be serious. High winds have been known to blow limbs and other debris into a roof and pull off sections of shingles. Storm damage is likely to leave a part of the house exposed, so the importance of a quick response cannot be understated. We make sure to get the roof covered with a tarp as soon as possible in order to minimize further damage to the inside of the house. As soon as we’re able to start repairing the roof, we inspect the decking and underlayment to make sure that the repair will last.
At Fortenberry Construction, we strive to offer the best and most comprehensive roofing repair services for residents of Vancleave. Our roofers are not only experts in roof repair, they are Gulf coast residents themselves, and they are deeply familiar with the unique weather and climate concerns that affect Vancleave residents. We are committed to serving our customers with integrity, and we never recommend a more expensive repair than what we deem necessary.
