As with many things in life, the earlier a roof leak is detected, the earlier the problem can be fixed. Early leak detection can help save money and avoid extremely high repair expenses. Sometimes, roofs can develop leaks many years before the entire roof actually needs to be replaced. These leaks are usually caused by localized damage. This type of damage can include cracks, blisters, missing shingles or cracked shingles. These are easy to repair, but difficult to find. At Peak Roofing & Construction, leak detection is one of our specialties. As the local Frisco roofing company, we know how important it is to find the precise location of leaks and repair quickly.
The Type of Roof Matters
Finding a leak fixing it varies by roof type.
- Shingle Roof – Shingle roof leaks are generally the easiest to fix. This type of roof leak repair is easier than other roofs because they usually occur at damaged, missing, or curled shingles, or around vents and chimneys.
- Flat Roof – Built up of roofing felt and tar layers, flat roofs usually have leaks occur at low spots. Leaks can also occur in places where damage has occurred to the roofing felt. Both of these types of leaks are also easy to find.
Here at Peak Roofing & Construction, our leak detection system can not only detect water leaks, but also detect ventilation problems, rodent and pest problems, energy inefficiency, insulation gaps, and excess moisture that can lead to issues with mildew. Roof leak repair, no matter the cause or severity, is very important to take care of as early as possible before too much damage can be done.
