Take These Steps if You Spot a Roof Leak

Take These Steps if You Spot a Roof Leak

Mar 18, 2022

It doesn’t matter if your roof is old, new, or somewhere in between, a leak can occur. And if it does, it’s imperative that you take immediate action. Failure to do so can result in damage to both the exterior and interior of your home.

Here are the basic steps you can stake if you spot a roof leak:

  • Attempt to pinpoint the cause: If possible, pinpoint the cause of the leak. This could be anything from a missing shingle to damaged flashing.
  • Contain the leak: Do your best to contain the leak until a professional can arrive to address it. For instance, if the water is leaking into your attic, set up a bucket to catch the water so that it doesn’t seep into the second floor of your home
  • Contact a professional: Unless you’re 100 percent confident in your ability to safely repair the problem, it’s best to consult with a roofing contractor. Not only does this guarantee that the leak is repaired, but you don’t have to put your safety on the line.

With the spring season here, you can expect plenty of rain over the months to come. Should you spot a roof leak, take these steps as quickly as possible.
