Water damage from a leaky roof can be devastating to your home
When you spot a water leak, it’s probably a sign that you need a roof repair or replacement. It’s important to understand that you might need more than just some new shingles or metal over the leaky area.
Water is a tricky liquid that can seep slowly into areas under your roof before you see any sign of its presence on your ceilings or walls. When water has been creeping into your home underneath roofing materials or through cracked shingles it can cause structural damage to the roof. Unfortunately for homeowners, many roofing contractors lack the construction knowledge to understand how to repair any structural damage and don’t even look for it. They simply set out to stop the leak by installing new shingles or metal over the leaking area without removing the old roofing materials down to the decking.
By not examining the decking, any structural damage is missed and left unrepaired which can lead to continued rotting and degradation of the structure.
Putting off roof repairs or having a roofing system improperly installed is never a good idea. This can lead to expensive repairs down the road. It is important for the integrity of the home and the roof to have repairs made properly up front to avoid even costlier work down the road.
