Fix a Roof Leak Forever, Don’t Find a Workaround

Fix a Roof Leak Forever, Don’t Find a Workaround

Jul 03, 2020

Is your roof leaking? Are you concerned about the impact on your home? Are you hoping to find a quick repair, even if it’s only temporary?

A roof leak isn’t something to put on the backburner. It requires your full attention until a permanent solution is in place.

Many homeowners immediately search for a workaround, such as:

•    Patching the area to temporarily keep water from entering their home

•    Placing a bucket indoors to collect the water

•    Placing a tarp or another object over the area that’s leaking

Yes, all of these things have the potential to provide temporary relief, but they’ll eventually give way and you’ll be back at square one.

Rather than go down this path, contact a professional roofing company to assess the leak and provide advice on what to do next. For example, it could be as simple as replacing a shingle that’s gone missing (such as the result of a wind storm).

Should you find that your roof is leaking, even a small amount, make a permanent fix. A temporary workaround may buy you some time, but it’s not a long-term solution. It only ends up costing you more time and money in the long run.
