Roof Repair Tips, Tricks & Techniques
Roof leaks are an annoying problem that can cause damage to your home. Roof repairs are often necessary, but there are several options available to homeowners.
Fixing Leaks with Waterproof Membranes
One of the easiest methods of fixing a leaking roof is by using waterproof membranes. These materials are applied directly to the roof surface and seal any cracks or holes. They also prevent water from entering into the attic space
Another method of repairing a leaky roof is to use roof sealant. This type of material is used to fill small leaks and cracks in the roof. It is usually applied with a brush or roller.
If you have shingles that are missing, torn, creased, or pulled through the fastener there are two solutions to preventing water damage inside your home.
The first thing that can be done is to place a tarp over the affected shingles. This will provide a temporary repair around the damaged area of your roof.
The second solution is to simply replace the affected shingles with new shingles. Shingles can be purchased at Lowes, Home Depot, or your local supply store.
If you are able to replace the affected shingles without damaging the other shingles around it, this repair will last longer than a tarp.
If you are uncomfortable with taking on the responsibility of repairs yourself, you can call Country Roofing and Restoration at 330-879-8306 or click the button below to schedule a free inspection.
You can repair flashing by using a caulking gun to apply caulk along the seams between the roof deck and the top of the shingles. This will help prevent leaks from occurring again.
