ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GOOD ROOF LEAK SOLUTION?
Is your roof leaking? There are many different causes of roof leaks, and these various causes often lead to leaks when you did nothing wrong to your roof. It just happened. However, once your roof does start leaking, what do you do? Are you tired of getting out the trashcan or bucket each time it rains? If so, here are a few solutions to your leaking roof problem and ways we can help alleviate the situation once and for all.
99% of the time a leaking roof is something that should not be ignored or put on the back burners. Ignoring a roof leak can cause serious damage to not only your roof, but could also effect the interior of the building as well. Creating mold, or rotting out woodwork are just some of the bad things that could happen. If you experience any roof leak, whether you believe it is minor or not, you calling to have your roof inspected or repaired is a good option, ignoring it is not.
Patch a Leaking Roof Yourself
Unfortunately, there some contractors out there who just want to take your money. Fortunately, these have become a rare exception to the rule of trustworthy contractors, but they still exist. After their inspection, they tell you there is serious damage and you will need to hire them to fix the problem. Now, in some cases this may be true, but other times you can patch up a leaking roof yourself. When you do patch the roof yourself, you’ll need to research exactly the best way to do it and make sure you know what you’re doing. With a little time invested, your leak will be resolved and you won’t have to bring that leak-bucket out anytime soon!
Call a Contractor for Repairs
When you inspect the roof and notice there is a lot more damage than expected and you think patching it yourself won’t be enough, then calling a contractor to do the repairs is the next step you should take. When finding a contractor, you shouldn’t take the process lightly. Make sure you take the time and do some research to find a reliable source to fix your roof. You wouldn’t want a random person without credibility and licensing to fix your plumbing, so why make that exception for your roof? Take the time, call multiple contractors, and choose the one you see that will fit your best interest.
In some situations, you’ll call a contractor to come look at your roof regarding repairs, and they will determine that your entire roof needs to be replaced. If this is the case, don’t waste any time and move right into the replace stage. This is a stage we’ve written about elsewhere on this blog. You simply need to find a contractor and a roof system you are comfortable with, and then start the replacement process.
Apply a Coating
Instead of repairing small portions or replacing the entire roof, you can apply a silicone coating directly to the existing roof. This eliminates leaks and improves the performance of the roof coating. Once this process is complete you have a completely new, leak-free roof that will last up to 20 years!
There are tons of solutions to leaking roofs, but silicone coatings are the best. If you’re looking for an economical, efficient, long-term solution to your leaking roof, check out silicone roof coatings.
