Roof Leaks Fixed Right.
When it comes to getting roof leaks fixed properly the first time, there are 3 basic things you want to keep in mind. If you're considering fixing a roof leak yourself, just remember that there's no substitute for experience. In the long run, it's much cheaper to have a professional look at your roof.
With that said, here's the three things to remember when getting your roof leak sorted out:
1. Leak Detection
It starts with a thorough inspection of the roof, both internally & externally. Detecting the actual cause of the leak means more than looking for a broken tile, you may actually need to perform a water test.
This may involve having someone inside the roof and another outside, putting a small amount of water onto the roof surface and tracking it internally. Water flows in tricky ways so observing the roof while it's affected by water is often the only sure fire way to confirm the source of any roof leaks you may have.
2. Leak Rectification
Once you know where the leak is coming from, now you need to choose the right solution to rectify the leak. Is it a simple silicone fix? Or does the area need to be stripped of tiles and resarked? This is where a good inspection will tell you what course of action you should take.
If you're a bit handy and are considering doing it yourself, be careful. Do you really want to be getting onto your again after the next storm or worse - during the storm? Sometimes it's best to leave it to the professionals.
When you're choosing a roofer to complete the repairs, you should akways ask them what type of warranty they offer on the repair work. Some companies offer a comprehensive warranty, while others will take your money and never come back.
It's also good to remember that depending on the type of repair needed, sometimes the only way to get a warranty or guarantee, you may need to have the affected area replaced altogether. For example, a silicone repair is usually considered a temporary repair and wouldn't be given a warranty.
