FREE Roof Leak Damage Assessment

Two of the most dreaded words to any homeowner are a “leaking roof.”

Water is the most insidious enemy, ready to penetrate your home’s most vulnerable defenses.

Once inside, the destruction and damage could be happening from the initial point of attack, making the first source of a roof leak hard to identify.

Roof leaks can damage your insulation, becoming breeding grounds for the black mold, damage walls and interior ceilings, and rot the wooden framing.

In case of any sign of a roof leak, call our team of experienced professionals for fast action.

Can a leaky roof be repaired?

In most cases, Yes! However, if you have a flat concrete tile roof or Spanish tile one, it is difficult to find the water entry source without leak detection services.

Fiberglass shingles are much easier to repair as compared to other roof materials.

If your roof is actively leaking because of weather, a roofing professional cannot fix the leak until the bad weather has stopped.

Tarping will only act as a temporary solution to reduce the damage inside the home until a professional roofer can address the problem.

How much does it cost to fix a leaking roof?

It’s crucial to address roof leaks as soon as they’re identified to prevent further damage to the roof or the rest of your home.

The cost of fixing a leaking roof largely depends on various factors.

The scope of repair: complete roof replacement or one or more slopes, the size and pitch of the roof, roofing material, geography, and so on.

Your roofing contractor will provide you with a written estimate before roof repair that you can use to compare with other contractors or your insurance adjuster.

Are leaking roofs covered by insurance?

This depends on several factors. Most specific is the policy coverage, which varies from carrier to carrier.

Almost all insurance policies cover roof damage for SUDDEN AND ACCIDENTAL occurrences of wind, smoke, fire, etc.

It is, however, important to note that insurance does NOT cover long-term rot and lack of maintenance problems.

What can I put on my roof to stop a leak?

Immediately you notice a roof leak, TARP IT!

Your insurance will pay for roof tarps if the coverage is allowed.

You can likewise use sandbags and nail the overlap to the overhang of your roof to prevent the tarp from folding up with heavy winds.

A box fan is another great option to blow cold air at the leaky points in the roof.

Try and find the source of the leak, and plug a box fan into the immediate outlet. This will help stop drips coming in through the roof temporarily.

What is the fastest way to fix a leaking roof?

A complete roof replacement is the best way to fix a leaking roof. You’ll rest assured that your roof is as good as new and won’t be leaking anytime soon.

If not, then patching and replacement of the damaged tiles is your best option.

According to most homeowners, the fastest and cheapest way is to cover the affected region with a plastic tarp.

What should you do if your ceiling is leaking?

If you notice or suspect a leak in your roof, call a water damage restoration service provider to inspect the damages and determine if a claim is an option.

They can also help tarp your roof and determine how much water damage has occurred within your home.

Is a leaking ceiling an emergency?

Absolutely! The water inside your home that is not inside your sinks, bathtubs, or plumbing is always an emergency.

This is because of the damage to the materials and bacterial growth that results from water intrusion.

Therefore, to avoid hazardous accidents or health complications, call a roof leak repair professional immediately you identify a leak in your home.

How serious is a ceiling leak?

Ceiling leaks are already a cause of stress and danger.

The leaks can cause attic and ceiling damage, growth of dangerous mildews and molds, inefficient energy use, and structural instability.

All ceiling or roof leaks are serious, as water should never come through your roof into your home.

What are the common signs of a roof leak?

One of the most common signs of a roof leak is a water stain on the ceiling or external stains or spots on your walls and roof.

These are normally light brown in color, and the size can help you determine how big the leak is.

It is, however, important to note that spots on your walls, roof, or ceiling don’t necessarily imply that you have a roof leak.

But if the spots/stains get darker or bigger every time it rains, consider calling a roof repair as soon as possible.

Some of the common signs of a roof leak include:

• Moisture or mold in the attic

• Loose or rusted step flashing

• Damaged or missing granules

• Buckling or curling shingles

• Spots on the ceiling, walls, or roof


Summary

Roof or ceiling leaks are an immediate cause of concern and danger.

As soon as you notice a roof leak, call your contractor as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the roof or home.

Almost all insurance cover roof repair resulting from sudden and accidental occurrences or wind, rain, or fire.

Therefore, don’t hesitate to get a roof leak repair professional to assess the situation and provide you with the best option to fix your roof.
