Immediate Steps to Take if You Find a Roof Leak

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 - Post by Pond1920

Do you have any reason to believe that your roof is leaking? For example, you may be able to see this from inside your home.

This isn’t something you want to come across, but it’s not the end of the world either. With the right approach, you can solve this problem in no time at all.

First things first, do your best to determine where the leak is coming from. This will give you a better idea of how to fix the issue.

From there, remember this: it’s always better to contact a professional. Even if you think the problem is small, a DIY fix is never as simple as it sounds. Not only do you need the right tools and equipment, but climbing onto your roof is easier said than done.

Once you contact a professional and discuss the problem at length, your contractor can access your roof, pinpoint the concern, and tell you what needs done.

Tip: if there is any interior damage, as is often the case with a long term roof leak, be sure to address this as well. Just because you stop the water from coming in doesn’t mean that any resulting damage will fix itself.
