Roof Leak Repair Services
A leaky roof can happen for a number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of a roof leak include an aging roof, failing roofing material, loose or damaged shingles, clogged gutters, chimney damage, improperly sealed roof vents, old flashing, an ice dam, termites, and more. Since there are several potential factors that could cause a leaking roof, it is crucial you hire an experienced roofing contractor to not only find roof leaks, but properly repair them.
As 24-hour emergency roofing contractors, we go above and beyond for our customers. Our roofing repair team can assess the damaged area(s) to quickly find the source of the leak. To protect your building from further damages, we will take the necessary steps to repair and replace the damaged roofing material in a quick and efficient manner.
When Is A Roof Leak Repair Necessary?
First and foremost, leaky roof repair is done to control the spread of water seeping in. This water can and will damage the internal structure and can be a source for further damage to the roof, if not checked early enough. It can also cause unsightly water stains on the interior and exterior of your home. The purpose of an emergency roof repair is to stop more water from entering your home, and to protect the home's structure and contents from being damaged or further damaged. If the repair is temporary, we will return to finish the work and restore your roof to a sound condition. Our professional roofing technicians will also ensure that no water is remaining within the roof structure to potentially cause further damage.
Shingles are a common culprit for leaky roofs. If you have loose, damaged or missing shingles, your roof becomes very vulnerable to the elements. Water from rainfall, snowfall, and hail can seep in between broken or curled shingles and seep into your home. Even if you just have a few missing shingles or a couple of curled back shingles, moisture can collect in the tiniest of cracks, compromising surrounding shingles and leading to a full roof leak. A Taves Roofing contractor can replace damaged or missing asphalt shingles to restore your leaking roof in no time.
Chimneys are a frequent place for leaks. When chimneys are installed, this creates a penetration on the roof which must be sealed with flashing, caulk, and/ or roof cement. If you have a leaky roof, the metal flashing around the chimney may have become loose, leaving space for moisture to seep in. Roof cement often separates from chimneys during extreme weather and temperature changes which can also lead to roof leaks. In such cases, it is important to have a professional roofer install new flashing and roofing cement around the damaged areas.
Roof vents are another easy area for water to seep in. Your roof probably has several vents to encourage ventilation. For example, you could have vents to let the hot air out of your attic, plumbing vents leading to and from the bathroom, dryer vents, and more. All these vents are normally sealed with aluminum flashing and/or roof cement; however, if this roof sealant fails, it could causing a leaking roof. Many emergency roof repairs are done around vents.
Can I Fix Roof Leaks On My Own?
You may be tempted to avoid an expensive repair bill by conducting roof repairs yourself. However, a compromised roof should be handled by a professional roofer to prevent leaks, reverse roof damage, and ensure your roof is in good shape. And with Taves Roofing, we offer affordable, reliable, and thorough roof leak repair, so there's no reason to waste money at the hardware store.
With that said, if you suspect a leaky roof, there are some essential steps you should take before help arrives. In an emergency situation, the first thing you should do is locate the leak. But this may not be as simple as spotting water dripping down the walls. Rather, look for points on the ceiling where paint or plaster is peeling or bubbling and search for water stains. If you can find the leak's location, take a screwdriver, and poke a hole in that spot on the ceiling. This will centralize the point of water buildup and release pressure from the roof, reducing the risk of structural damage. If there is water draining into your home, place a bucket below the drip to collect it.
Once you have done this, you may be tempted to grab a new shingle, some roof sealant, a utility knife, and some roofing nails in an attempt to DIY the situation. However, a leaky roof is rarely a simple fix, especially for unexperienced hands. To repair the leak and prevent future damage, our team of roofing experts are here to help.
