Tackle Roof Leaks with the Experts
A building is meant to protect its inhabitants from the elements that mother nature throws at it. However, it cannot do this properly if your roof is leaking. Leaking roofs can be devastating to a home or commercial building. Depending on how severe, leaks can create an unsafe environment for families or the staff of a business. Roof leaks can cause damage to the roof system, insulation, and if not treated quickly, it can spread to other parts of the building. This can cause expensive repairs in the future, or possibly a roof replacement.
If you are looking to defend your home or commercial building from all of the elements, we at At The Top Restoration can provide all of the leak repair services you require. Our team of experienced roofers can efficiently assess and tackle the cause of the leak. However, it is important to contact us before the leak spreads beyond the roof and into the depths of the building, causing irreversible damage.
Signs You Need Roof Leak Repair
Buildings have a way of communicating with us when something is wrong. There are a number of things that you can keep an eye out for when dealing when you suspect that your roof is in need of leak repair. Some of the major signs are:
If your building has asphalt shingles, it can be easy to spot the source of the leak. Signs on broken, bent, curled or missing shingles can cause roof leaks. However, use all safety precautions when doing work on a roof. If you do not feel comfortable, call for professional help.
As time goes on, our gutters slowly begin to fill with leaves and other debris. If the gutters are not regularly cleaned, the mix of leaves and debris will begin to break down. This broken down mixture caused clogs in the gutters, which can cause the gutters to overflow. This gives the water nowhere to go, thus it stays on the roof. Pooling water is a major source for leaks, so if you are having trouble finding the cause of your roof leak, check the gutters.
Flashings are used to protect weaker or at risk areas of a roof. They are usually made of metal and are susceptible to rust and deterioration. They are also susceptible to shifting. If one of your flashings has rusted or shifted, it could be the cause of the leak.
