How To React When You See A Roof Leak

Surveying The Scene

Given time, a roof leak can lead to a variety of different problems. These can range from paying larger energy bills to having severe water damage in your home, or a combination of these different problems. As a result, acting quickly when you see a leak is essential, but so is acting correctly. Here’s what you need to do.

As a start, don’t panic. Trying to plug the leak yourself may only end up causing more trouble, so you want to take a measured approach. First, you want to try to track where the leak is coming from, starting with the attic. Just note that the point of entry the water is coming in at may not necessarily represent where the roof leak is. In some case, other layers of the roof, like plywood, may redirect the water a bit. At this point, you can try to find something to collect the water and minimize water damage. Of course, DIY roof repair doesn’t work, so you need to find someone to actually remove said leak.

Finding Professional Help

The key here is to look and make sure that you take the time to find the perfect professional match. In some cases, for example, a roofing professional may start with a consultation to try and find the source of the leak. Even though you’ve done a bit of searching on your own, it’s a good idea to take advantage of this resource, as they may be able to catch other roof issues you hadn’t noticed.

Equally important when it comes to finding someone to work on your leak is not just going for the first contractor that approaches you. Different contractors have different ways they go about their business as well as different offerings. You want to be able to make a comparison in those early stages.
