Don’t Trust the Temporary Repair of a Roof Leak

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 - Post by Pond1920

At Pond Roofing, we’re well aware of the fact roof leaks occur from time to time. While you never want to experience this problem, it could cause you a headache in the future.

Fortunately, every repair can be fixed with the right approach.

Here’s a mistake that you never want to make: treating a temporary repair like it will last forever.

This often comes into play when a homeowner finds a leak. Rather than call a professional, the person repairs the problem to the best of their ability and forgets about it for the time being.

While it’s good to stop the water from entering your home, a temporary repair will not last forever. Instead, it will give way at some point, thus bringing your problem back to the forefront.

Once you’ve temporarily stopped the leak, the best thing you can do is consult with a roofing professional. From there, they can inspect your roof, suggest a permanent repair, and put an end to the leak once and for all.

There’s nothing wrong with temporarily fixing a roof leak, but don’t assume that your repair will hold up over the long run. Instead, make sure you implement a permanent solution as soon as possible.
