Your Ultimate Guide to Leak Repairs

Leak repairs and the solution you need

The heavy rain might be the last thing that your roof needs. Unfortunately, reaction to a problem might be your only way to know that there is a problem in this weather. True heavy rain may cause issues in your roofing that you never even knew existed. And possibly these issues didn’t exist before this rain. It’s a catch 22 of sorts and reaction may be your only course of action. So, what can you do if you find yourself in this situation? Here are a few preventive tips. If leak services and protection are required, the right resource is necessary. Knowing who to call and when, is your best course of action - period. But there are also tasks that you can do yourself in order to protect your home from leaks in the roof during heavy rain.

Your Ultimate Guide to Leak Repairs

Regular Roof Maintenance: Regular roof maintenance is important to prevent leaks - this is a foundational task. You should inspect your roof at least once a year, and especially after any severe weather events. Always checking for any damaged, missing or cracked shingles, as well as any damage to the flashing around chimneys, skylights or vents. An annual “check-up” for your roofing is as necessary for the safety of your home as heating, water and electricity.

Keep Gutters and Downspouts Clean: Gutters and downspouts should be cleaned regularly and consistently to ensure that water flows properly off your roof and away from your home and not toward your home. Clogged or blocked rain gutters can cause water to back up and overflow, potentially causing damage to your roof and home. Water and debris flowing back into the structure instead of down and away from the structure makes these clogged rain gutters a fast track for flooding.

Install a Drip Edge: A drip edge is a metal strip that is installed along the edge of the roof. The purpose is to prevent water from seeping under the roofing material. This piece helps to redirect water away from the fascia and into the gutters. It’s an additional step to help protect the proper flow of rain water away from your home.

Seal Any Cracks or Holes: Unfortunately this is one that may only come from a reactionary position. Any cracks or holes in your roof should be repaired immediately as soon as a leak shows itself. This can prevent water from entering your home during heavy rain. This is without a doubt a necessary time for professional attention.

Trim Trees: Whether it's rain, wind or extreme heat conditions, trees up against your home can be a hazard all throughout the year. This must be a constant task. Trees close to your home can cause damage during heavy rain and high winds. And it’s crucial to make sure to trim any trees close to your home to prevent branches from falling and causing damage to your roof. The more trees and foliage around your home, the greater the potential hazards.

It’s just a fact, you may not know there is a problem until there is a problem. Prevention in many foundational ways is a good start, however issues like leaks may not show themselves until all of the hazard conditions are right. At this point, calling in a resource to fix the problem is your best course of action. Fast and reliable repairs from a well trained, well trusted professional is the rapid solution that you need. Knowing who to call when you need them the most might be your best resource yet.
