Getting to the Root of Your Leaky Roof Problem
In order to provide roof leak repair, it’s obviously critical to find the source of the leaky roof. The faster leak detection is performed, the faster the problem can be fixed so that any potential damage is minimized. We will quickly determine the location of your leak and determine the best course of action.
Here are some of the most common reasons that roof leak repair becomes necessary:
- Shingle problems – Asphalt shingles can become loose, cracked, or rotted, especially if they are more than 15 or 20 years old. Factors such as sun damage, persistent wet weather, hail, or poor maintenance are just some of the typical culprits.
- Loose nails – The shingles on your roof are fastened with staples or nails. Occasionally, they will back out, cutting through the top shingles and causing a substantial leak. If this problem is detected quickly enough, it is quite affordable to fix.
- Poor installation – Sometimes an unqualified contractor will incorrectly install the metal piece used to seal areas where the roof meets walls, balconies, chimneys, and other areas. This piece, known as “flashing,” is key to preventing a leaky roof. Once the flashing is replaced properly, the leak will stop.
What are some indicators that a leak is part of a bigger problem?
Discovering a leak in your roof can be stressful and a bit scary. While sometimes a leak can be an easy repair that will solve the issue, occasionally it can be a sign that you have a much bigger problem on your hands. If you begin noticing a dramatic increase in the number of leaks on your roof, you may need a roof replacement. The same can be said if you notice sagging or dips in your roof. That can be a sign of a structural problem or widespread water damage to the underlying support of your roof. A leak may be just one symptom of a bigger overall problem that can be only solved by installing the new roofing material. The best way to determine the severity or cause of a roof leak is to call a professional roofer, like the team at Peak Roofing & Construction. We can dispatch one of our professional roofers to your location to thoroughly inspect your roof and determine the source and cause of your leak.
How to repair roof leak around Chimney?
Roofs and chimneys don’t always fit together smoothly. The roof will not infrequently separate from the brick of the chimney, causing a leak. These leaks can be hard to find; if you suspect on your house, it’s best to hire a professional. The repair team at Peak Roofing & Construction can remove any leaves or accumulated debris from the gap between the chimney and the flashing. Using a chisel, we’ll then get rid of hardened roofing cement in order to access the leak itself. We’ll then reapply a generous amount of roofing cement behind the flashing and use masonry nails or screws to reattach the flashing to the chimney. We want to make sure every repair we complete is airtight, so we then cover each nail and screw head with more roofing cement. Once we complete this simple repair, you can count on a safe flashing and a dry, sealed-up house.
How do you repair flat roof leaks?
As with any roof, it’s crucial to find the cause of a flat-roof leak promptly. A flat roof is built up in layers of roofing felt and tar. This means that leaks typically occur at low points, or where the felt has been damaged. This damage is easy to spot from on top of the roof, and the leak is usually just below the outer signs. A quick inspection should give you all the information you need.
Upon locating the leak, you should use a mop to soak up any remaining water. You should also clear away gravel or debris. If you notice a large amount of water pooling, you have more than a simple blister on your hands. You need a professional roofer for this work. The good news is that most flat roof repairs are quite simple for professionals equipped with roofing cement and felt.
What are the most common leaky roof repairs?
Roof leaks can cause considerable damage to a home if they are left alone for too long. Hiring a professional is the only surefire, cost-effective method to locate the leak. Otherwise, you risk worsening conditions and costly damage. Here are some of the most common causes of leaky roofs that we find:
Age – Over time, all roofing materials deteriorate; exposure to direct sunlight will melt the tar. While we sometimes need to replace the entire roof, at other times we can simply replace the tar and the layer of broken material.
Vents – The gaskets around vent pipes can form cracks or gaps over time. They can also lose nails. These are all simple fixes.
Debris – Accumulated debris, such as twigs or pine needles, may trap water against the roof, allowing it to seep through. We must first remove the debris before completing more comprehensive repairs.
