Big or small, a leak in the roof can cause some serious damage. Whether you have a gaping hole in the roof or a subtle leak, you need to get roof repair as soon as possible. Here is how to conquer roof leaks from the roofers at Matt’s Roofing in Edmonton.
Why the roof leaks
This can be for any number of reasons. The roofing textiles could simply be old and dated, the material may be worn, or the eaves troughs need to be cleared out of the debris. However, there could be larger problems in the works. For instance, there could be an issue with chimneys, ductwork, roof vents, or any number of things. A roofing repair service will be able to point out the exact problem to help you get it fixed fast.
Why fix the leak as soon as possible
When your roof experiences a leak, there’s a build-up of water that’s finding holes and cracks to travel through. This can cause the base of the roof and the ceiling beneath it to rot or create mold which will damage not only the home’s structure but is harmful to you and your family. Leaving a leak too long may cause the roof to collapse, ruin drywall and insulation, as the damage will only increase. In order to avoid all of this, it’s important to have the roof fixed as soon as you can.
What happens to your roof
This all depends on what kind of roofing you have. If you have any damaged asphalt shingles, they could begin to curl and allow for water to pass through. This will make it easy to spot the problem area. With other textiles, it may be more challenging to pinpoint the problem. For instance, if you have clay shingles, it may be cracked and need a complete redo.
Why call a roofer
Roofers will be able to not only find the problem but find the solution your roof requires. Once assessing the situation, they will let you know what to expect, and what changes should and can be made.
