Roof Leaks That Are Typical:

Most roof leaks commonly occur around the usual roof protrusions, such as chimneys, skylights, plumbing exhaust pipes, and also at some roof to wall junctions.
Loose or missing shingles caused by any storm damage or age deterioration, nail holes, ridge caps, insects and/or rodents can also be the source of many leaks.

Diagnosing The Potential Problem:

An experienced roofing professional can normally pinpoint the source of the roof leak quickly and present a plan of action. Depending on the extent of the problem and the age of the roof, it sometimes makes more sense to replace a damaged roof, than making multiple repairs to a leaking roof, only to see the same or more complex issues further on down the road.

Possible Roof Leak Treatment:

In general, the leaky area that is affected will be removed and then repaired using new materials and flashings. In some cases it will be required to remove and replace an area of siding on the outside of the house, where the water has leaked through. Something you want to avoid at all cost is letting the issue go long enough for water damage to occur to your exterior walls.

If the leaky roof is old or has multiple layers of roofing material on it, repairs may not be a viable option, as old and dried out shingles can be as brittle as a graham cracker. Trying to blend new shingles with old shingles may be impossible due to size, variance, age, visual appeal, availability and fragility.

Find A Qualified Professional:

Many companies do not make roof repairs or offer services outside of their immediate regional area. Look for a local company who specializes in roofing repair work, plus gives every customer a free estimate. Always be certain that whomever you hire to do your roof repair work is licensed and insured. (The Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks roofing as the sixth most dangerous profession).

It is best to leave roofing repairs to the professionals. They have the safety skills and the knowledge that is needed for roofing issues. Most of the time, repairs can discontinue a roof from leaking and prolong the life of your roof. To avoid the extensive and costly damage to your roof structure and your home’s interior and exterior, be sure to address all leaky roof issues promptly and through professional.
