Do you have a Leaky Roof?
Spot the common roof leak problems before they cost you big money.
Broken shingles can be a huge factor in contributing to a leaky roof. Shingles are designed to shed water for long periods of time if they are overlapped correctly. A missing or broken shingle combined with water, snow, and wind can make a small problem into a large roof replacement.
Bricks and mortar are not the most reliable material for water resistance since mortar breaks down over time and lets water into your home.
To fix this problem you may need to find the leak and replace the mortar. Since the materials used for chimney repairs are different than those for standard roofing fixes, it is suggested, that you hire a roofing professional.
Flashing that has not been sealed can be one of the worst things for your roof. Flashing is placed in valleys and channels where water tends to flow. If flashing is not done right, water can flow down your walls or get into your attic, damaging your insulation, growing mold, and rotting the sheeting on your roof.
