Residential Roof Repair / Replacement

Residential Roof Repair

Spec Roofs has the most up-to-date infrared scanning service for detecting moisture and leaks in the  Kentuckiana area. We will test the drywall and insulation for any moisture that may indicate a problem that would so often be missed. This practice safeguards against the non-detection of hidden leaks. 

The infrared scanner has revolutionized the level of service we have been able to provide for our customers. Of course we all know that water seeks its own level which indicates that although you may detect a leak somewhere it is rarely the cause for the leak itself. Water flows down the interior walls long before there is any actual evidence of the concern. These hand-held devices enable us to scan for hidden moisture, not perceivable with the naked eye and get to work rapidly, for in our game every minute wasted there is the potential for further deterioration.

Things to Consider

So when weighing replacing your roof totally versus merely repairing the one you have here are some factors to take into consideration.


Shingles will sometimes come loose or may be affected by high winds and get blown off entirely. It is also very common for us to see shingles that have been improperly placed around stack pipe flashing. Spec Roofs will easily nail down replacement shingles or redo a poor installation job.


A dripping ceiling may not indicate that a whole new roof is on the cards. Use your naked eye to check for mold and sagging or warping in the timbers. If it’s something that has just started then it’s more than likely an easy home improvement.


Ice and snow can cause damage to soffit gables, eaves and overhangs. You want to prevent and get rid of any ice pooling as this will further damage the timber and also to check for any insects. Call an exterminator if you see any of these unwelcome guests even if you don’t see the actual nest. Spec Roffs can repair any rotten timber and help you with ice and snow removal before real contamination occurs.

At Spec Roofs we will do our utmost to repair the structure you already have unless it will cost you more money to continue to undergo repairs. Call us now for a no obligation assessment and we will give you honest and current advice on just how to tackle the problems you may be experiencing.

Residential Roof Replacement

Unfortunately there are occasions where a completely new construction of the roof is required and when that’s the case Spec Roofs are the ones to call. Our team of roof designers and construction professionals are able to provide a new structure for any commercial or residential property. Our policy is to book a comprehensive consultation with you and our engineers so that you know exactly what time frame and budget we are looking at for your job. We guarantee excellent quality roofing because we only use the highest quality material which means you get a durable roof at a reasonable cost. As in every industry you may find that you are bombarded with a wide range of prices all quoted for the same job. We see the problem of sub-standard contractors slashing the prices and giving people poor quality products. The cost of buying a really cheap roof is way too expensive when you have to replace the roof in 2 years instead of 20. So please bear in mind while we may not be the cheapest quote you get, we are offering you the very best bang for your buck.

At Spec Roofs we take the greatest pride in our work and have the expertise to put in the required effort and use the correct equipment to build you a roof that will last you a good 20 years.

When To Replace Your Roof

We realize that replacing over repairing is significant in terms of cost; however under certain conditions we recommend that you do just that.


You have a roof that is around 25 years old, although it has been maintained over the years.


You have extensive leaking through multiple problem areas.


Your current home or even a new purchase may need to have a “face-lift.”


There is so much new cool technology in the roofing industry that is moving towards more eco–friendly techniques that save you money in the long run.
