Best Garner NC Roofing Companies (Updated March 2023)

Getting started on your roofing project is always a daunting process. Whether it’s a repair or replacement, it’s very likely going to be expensive, and disruptive to your daily life. As such, you need to put some time into making sure that you work with a company that you trust. You want a company that won’t take advantage of you, and won’t leave you out to dry (or, more accurately, get wet) with shoddy workmanship and poor installation.

We’re located in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, and we see all different kinds of roofing contractors that serve the area, and not all of them are worthy of your business. In towns like Garner, a quick Google search may turn up more questions than answers, as the first several results are for review sites where companies can pay to be listed first, regardless of their actual quality, or number of high ratings.

So, in order to help you narrow down your search, in this blog, we’ll be going over:

5 of the Best Garner Roofing Companies

Before we dive in, a quick disclaimer: none of the companies on this list are on here because of experiences that we’ve had with them, and this list is not a personal recommendation. The information presented is from the companies’ websites, as well as the Google reviews that they’ve received. This blog is to help you narrow down your roofing search to companies that are locally owned and operated, have received a high rating, and have experience working in the Garner area.

Also, you may be wondering why we, a roofing company that serves Garner, is writing about our competition in the area. Well, our mission is to become a source of roofing information for homeowners in the Triangle area, and that by sharing our knowledge and experience with you, you'll feel like you know us long before you need to reach out to us for a roofing service.

How Much does it cost to repair a roof leak?

If you’re taking a look at this blog because you’re dealing with a roof leak, then we’ve got some more tips for you on how to approach the rest of your project! One of the main things that you should have an idea of before you talk with a roofer, is how much any given project should cost. Obviously the real cost can vary greatly, so all we can do is give a solid range, but after reading on, you should have an idea of what to expect!

Clogged Gutters

clogged gutters_WebP-1

What causes the leak?

Gutters can be the cause of several roof problems, despite them being one of the most helpful parts of our roof systems. This is because so often they get clogged by leaves and debris, and aren’t cleaned out as frequently as they should be. Once a gutter gets clogged, the water it was channeling can no longer flow through, which causes a myriad of issues. The gutter could begin pulling down the soffit, and warp the roof, or if the water backs up onto the fascia, it may begin to find its way through.

How much does it cost to fix?

This depends on how long they’ve been clogged, and the extent of the damage. If your gutters have begun to damage the decking and fascia, be prepared to part with several hundred dollars to repair this issue, as it might require a good bit of work and material. However, if you catch your clogs early enough, and clean them out, you can save a ton of money. Clean your gutters people!

Damaged Shingles

What causes the leak?

We see damaged shingles most often on older roofs after being exposed to a particularly strong storm. Shingles act as the first, and strongest line of defense against the elements, so you’ll want to get this taken care of quickly. When there is a hole in the layer of shingles, often next up is the underlayment, and roof decking, which you don’t want to have getting wet.

How much does it cost to fix?

This will vary depending on the kind of shingles you have, the pitch of your roof, how much area is damaged, and where the damage is located. The costs we usually see can be anywhere between $500 and $3,500, with small holes in a three-tab shingle roof on the low end, and on the higher end, a larger damaged area in a higher quality shingle roof. If your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, and the cost of the replacement is in that $2,000 to $3,000 range, you may be recommended a replacement, since you would likely need that in a few years anyway.

Pipe Boot Issues

What causes the leak?

A pipe boot is what goes around the bottom of a ventilation pipe in order to make sure there are no open areas for water to get through around the pipe. These boots can be made out of various materials, including metal, plastic, and synthetic rubber. The rubber ones are particularly prone to failing, as they can dry out and crack with the heavy sun exposure they receive.

How much does it cost to fix?

This is one of the more simple repairs to make, as the leak might be able to be sealed with a rubber collar, or if necessary, fully replacing the boot itself. This will typically cost between $325 and $375.
