Roof Repair

Roof Repair Baton Rouge, LA

We understand how challenging it is to face roof issues and not know where to turn. If you need roof repair in Baton Rouge, LA, Reliable Roofing has experienced roofing contractors and the proper tools and skills required to do the job right. Here, you’ll find a listing of what we do, information about cost, and why you should work with us. Of course, you can always contact us if you have other questions that we haven’t covered here.

Leaking Roofs

For most homeowners, the idea of their possessions getting ruined is enough to have them glancing up at the ceiling every few moments during a rainstorm. It’s easy to get into the habit of fearing the rain, but you don’t have to do that.

Some people just redecorate around the leaking parts of the roof system. While we understand that this is a common temporary fix, it shouldn’t be what you do for the long-haul. The longer you leave the leak, the worse it is likely to get. We offer roof leak repair so that you no longer have to worry about your furnishings.

Our Process

The first step is for us to come to your home and check the roofing system. We will look for leaky joints, such as those found around valleys or chimneys. As such, we can seal small gaps, but we can also fix larger tears/cracks by patching or adding new flashing.

If there is noticeable damage, such as a water spot, we will look for the culprit and fix it. Of course, this can take a lot of work because we might have to replace the substrate, which is beneath the asphalt or rubber. Our professionals can easily rip out parts of the substrate and add in a new one, which saves time and money. Sometimes, however, it might be necessary to replace the whole substrate or roof, depending on how significant the damage is.

Before we do any work, we will talk to you about the problems we found and help you choose the most appropriate course of action. Our team also focuses on working within your budget and making sure that everything is provided in a written quote so that there are no surprises when you receive the bill.

Types of Repairs We Perform

We understand that there are a variety of roof systems on homes throughout Baton Rouge, LA. These can include slate, tile, flat, and other roofing styles. Our contractors are skilled at handling any of these options, so you don’t have to worry. When you call on us for assistance, you can rest easy knowing that we can help you.


Slate roof repair is especially challenging, and not all roofers can offer this service. In most cases, a single slate has gone missing or needs to be removed and replaced. It requires a variety of steps, such as cutting the nails that hold the damaged slate in position.

Of course, we also have to find replacement slates. As such, our network is full of partners who have the products needed, so this isn’t likely to be a problem. Plus, we offer these materials at cost, which can save you a lot of money.

When we get the slates to match your current ones, we slide it into place and use a special method of counter-sinking to ensure that the nail hole and nail sits flush.

There are also other methods of repairing slate roofing systems, so we always use our best judgment to make sure that the one we choose is right for your home and needs.


Tile roof repair is also one of our specialties. Many times, the cracks and holes can be filled using plastic roofing cement. This is our go-to method because it is cost-effective and quick. We do realize that it isn’t always possible to use this option. If not, we’ll pry up the tiles carefully and remove them. Next, we’ll match up the colors and get a suitable replacement, using roofing cement underneath to slide it in place and bond it to the substrate.

For tile roof leaks, we’ll find the leaking area, take up all the tiles around it, patch up the break with appropriate roofing cement, and then replace all of the tiles.


Flat roofs are primarily level and are common in warm climates and on older homes. They work extremely well, but it’s important to inspect them for damage and cracks. Many times, they’re made of rubber, asphalt, PVC, or other synthetic materials. In most cases, flat roof repair is quite easy to do with an adhesive patch, caulk, or bitumen.

Of course, we will always focus on your particular roof to determine the cause and find out what material was used. If you have a leak, it’s sometimes a challenge to find out where it is. Primarily, water will drip some distance away from the actual location of the hole. Our professionals have the right skills to estimate where it is, as well as the tools to do so.

The DIY Approach

We do realize that many homeowners want to save money, and it’s tempting to do roofing repairs yourself. However, it is quite dangerous to get on top of the roof using a ladder. You could fall off the ladder, twist an ankle, and more. Our professionals are skilled, so they know how to stay safe in unsafe conditions.

Along with such, you may think you’ll save money by doing things yourself. The roof repair cost can be extensive, ranging anywhere from $300 to over $1,000. It just depends on the extent of the damage.

In most cases, homeowners wait until there is significant devastation to the inside of the home, which means there is more damage to the roof. If you catch it early enough, the destruction is minor, and the bill will be less. Trying to do the work yourself might end up costing you more because it might not be done correctly.

Lionel Hayes Reliable RoofingOn very short notice,between Christmas and New Year, 2023, Mr Hayes arranged to replace the roof of our home, and did so the day after the New Year. Throughout our conversations regarding the work, Mr Hayes was attentive, patient, and very respectful with my myriad of questions and concerns. The work was done while we were away from home. As promised, the work was started and completed in a day. Because we were away, Mr Hayes took the time to send pictures of the completed work. The new roof is an absolute dream come true and complements the brick of the house perfectly. Our property was impeccably clean at the finish of the roof replacement. When a roof replacement is required again, we will be calling Lionel Hayes..

I recently had the opportunity to work with Lionel Hayes Jr of Reliable Roofing. My home had been in need of work for quite some time. After many visits from my insurance company along with the denials they presented with the review they provided, I was able to obtain an approval from them with the assistance of Reliable Roofing. Lionel along with his team, were patient, understanding and not pushy in making decisions. They took their time and provided many options to my wife and I to ensure that the roofing chosen was within budget and was what we wanted. Upon the start of the work, they were on time each day, replaced dangerous woodwork on my home and cleaned the entire area when the job was complete. They worked endlessly until the job was done and exceeded my expectations. I will be referring them to anyone looking and they have gained a customer for life. Thank you so much.- Written on behalf of Mr and Mrs Sterling Anthony

Mr.Hayes of Reliable Roofing was very professional and upfront. Cares about your overall satisfaction. Workers are professionals and prompt. Job well done and priced affordable. Reliable Roofing was just that ….Reliable!
About three months after the 2021 Ida storm, I noticed interior water damage. As I was challenging the results of the insurance claim, and after several inspections from plumbers and general contractors it was determined that there were no interior plumbing leaks. I received several roof installation quotes that were all over the board and appeared to be more about the zip code than actual scope of work and product. After seeing several commercials over a six-month period, I decided to give Mr. Hayes and his team a call. Mr. Hayes was very responsive in scheduling the time to come and inspection the roof and provided a reasonable estimate and timeline to begin and complete the installation. In addition, he assisted me in matching my shingle composition and color based on my budget, desired lifecycle, and aesthetics.If you are in need of roofing consultation, don't hesitate in giving the team at Reliable Roofing a call.
Response from the owner: Mr. McCloud,Thank you for trusting us with your roof. Thank you for putting your roofing needs in our hands.
