Oh no! Your roof is leaking and you aren’t quite sure what to do. If left alone for an extended period of time, roof leaks can lead to health issues and cause costly damage. We’ve got some tips to help you successfully contain the leak and repair the damage.
First and foremost you must contain the roof leak to prevent widespread damage. If possible, place a bucket or other container in your attic to catch the water as it leaks through your roof. By containing the water and preventing it from spreading to your ceiling, you will decrease water damage costs to the inside of your home. It’s also important to realize that the cause and origin of your leak is not always going to be where you see the water leaking through your roof.
Next, you will need to contact a local, trusted roofing contractor, like Texan Roofing Pros, for a roof inspection to find the cause and source of your leak. Don’t fall victim to a storm chaser that appears in the area after a big storm. This often leads to future problems, especially if your roof is not repaired correctly. A roof inspection will include tracking down the origin of the leak. The licensed and insured roofing contractor will check roof penetrations, ventilation in the attic and other crucial areas of your roof to determine if your leak is isolated or if there is roof failure involved. After inspection, the roofing contractor will determine if you a roof repair is sufficient or if you need a full roof replacement.
Your roofing contractor will also give you an estimate of the cost of the work that needs to be completed. A reputable company will also be able to assist in filing an insurance claim if applicable. It is advantageous to go over your quote with your contractor to ensure you understand all the work that will be completed as well as any warranties that are included. After reviewing this information with your contractor it is time for the work to begin.
