As one of the top roofing contractors in our local area, Classic Remodeling recommends regular roof inspections and maintenance. This will detect and fix small roof leaks before they become major sources of water damage. As a homeowner, you can do your part by learning about the common causes of roof leaks and looking out for them. They include:
Roof Vent Booting Cracks – Roof vents are small pipes that stick out of the roof and expel excess moisture from your interior. When sealing a roof vent, roofers place flashing around the opening and slip a tight rubber boot over this area. This boot can crack and the flashing can come loose because of wear and tear, leading to roof leaks and water damage. Fortunately, we can easily identify and fix this problem.
Damaged Flashings – Flashings are thin pieces of metal that protect the joints of your roof and the area surrounding your roof penetrations. You can also find them underneath your shingles. Their job is to serve as a waterproof barrier. Weather and strong winds can damage your flashing, causing them to become loose or develop cracks. Water can then enter these gaps and damage your roof. Roof repair experts like us can stop this at the source and ensure it never happens again.
Improperly Sealed Roof Valleys – The roof valley is one of the most vulnerable areas of your roof because water tends to accumulate there. When it rains, water flows down towards your roof valley and into your gutters. If the seals in your roof valley are compromised then water can seep through your underlayment and eventually damage your roof. We can prevent this from happening by carefully inspecting your roof valleys and installing a new leak barrier.
