No matter how well you take care of your house, there is always the chance something could go wrong. For example, your roof could begin to leak at some point.

If you come to the conclusion that your roof is leaking, you don’t want to wait too long to find a solution. After all, water is getting into your home and that is never a good thing.

1. Pinpoint the problem. You may be able to do this on your own. If not, contact us to discuss your options for repair. We are more than happy to inspect your roof to determine what is going on.

2. Contact your insurance company. You don’t have to do this, but it is something to consider. It makes sense to learn more about the cause before contacting your insurer.

3. Opt for a permanent fix. As a homeowner, you may be able to patch the problem for the time being. The problem with this is simple: the issue is likely to come back soon enough.
