Q: How Can I Find the Area the Roof Is Leaking From?
A: Your best bet is to wait for a rainy day and check in the attic to pinpoint the exact place of entry. Remember, though, that in the case of leaky roof repair, the area leaking may not be the only place that has been damaged and that needs to be repaired to prevent future leaks.
Q: How Long Does Roof Leak Repair Take?
A: It depends on the problem. If the leaky roof repair is localized to one area and just involves replacing a few shingles, it could be done in less than an hour. If the entire roof needs to be replaced, this could take longer depending on the number of layers of shingles present on the roof, whether you are having the old roof removed, the size, and the pitch of the roof.
Q: What Are the Most Common Leaky Roof Repairs?
A: If the leaky roof is caused by localized damage, then replacing or repairing the shingles or flashing in that area is the most common leaky roof repair. If the damage is more widespread, however, or is contained to the field of shingles and not to a ridge cap, chimney, skylight, soffit, or other roof penetration, then partial or complete reroofing is the answer
Q: Why Is My Roof Leaking?
A: There can be a lot of reasons why a roof can begin to leak. You may be missing a shingle, or there may be a cracked or damaged shingle that is allowing water in. You could also have water infiltration from a chimney or skylight. In fact there can be several reasons why your roof is leaking that have nothing to do with the roof itself and everything to do with the ice dams, soffits, and windows that may be adjacent to it. The only way to find out for sure is to have a professional assessment done.
