Dangers of Waiting
Leaky Roof Fixed? It is essential to act swiftly when it comes to a roof leak. Leaky roofs never repair themselves or get better on their own. Even if the leak is not bad as of yet. Get it fixed immediately. Often we hear from home-owners that they noticed a stain on their ceiling or probably some bubbling for a while but believed it wasn’t severe. Avoiding and ignoring will not fix a leak in your roof. Several times by the time you notice damage within your home, it is now too late. The National Roofing Contractors Association advises examining your roof at least twice a year, in the fall and spring. Here is what to look for to limit a fixable issue from turning into a damaging and expensive repairs:
On the interior, you should watch for:
- Dark spots
- Places anywhere outside sunshine’s through the cracks
On the outside, you should keep a lookout out for:
- Missing, curled, rotting, peeling, broken, blistering, or buckling shingles
- Obstructed or slow-draining gutters
- Loosened material or wear around chimneys or vents
If your roof is less than 15 years old, it can reasonably be spot repaired rather than requiring a complete roof replacement. Just remember that a tiny leak will not go away — it will only get more serious.
Roof leaks are typically just indications of a much broader problem. Both danger and the possibility of structural erosion progress if unaddressed. Regular examinations are your most reliable defense against a leaky roof. Be watchful, search for leaks, and talk with your contractor about the condition of your roof regularly.
