stafford va roofersRoof leak repair can be a daunting task if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Many people spend hours, even days looking for the source of a leaky roof.

Finding roof leaks takes an experienced roof repair contractor and professional, and it takes looking sideways, diagonal, inside and outside to find them. Therefore, you should always hire a professional roofer in stafford for leak detection instead of trying to do it yourself.

Most roof leaks happen around flashings, joints, or other transitional areas that connect the roof to things other than the roof such as chimneys, skylights, or plumbing stacks. Flashings many times are installed incorrectly. During winter months, ice damming and snow drifting can also cause roof leaks by infiltrating areas of your roof that are normally not exposed to the elements.

A leaky roof can often cause damage beyond what you see by the time it reaches the interior of your home. By the time you see the discolored drywall, or peeling paint, the water entering your home has soaked, spread, and swelled its way through your home’s structure. Sometimes the original source of a leaky roof can be more than ten feet away from the drip coming from your ceiling. Roof leak repair is a priority for any homeowner.
