A leaking roof is infuriating, especially during the rainy season. A leaking roof causes significantly more damage than a standard leak. It deteriorates the ceiling and may even cause damage to the house’s wiring. Thus, a repair is imminent. On the other hand, what should you look for when repairing a roof?
Teresa Garrett’s short YouTube video ” Roof Repairs – Stop and Prevent Leaky Shingles and Vents – Do It Yourself” identifies three potential sources of roof leakage, including missing shingles, loose shingles, and damaged flashings and rubber seals. Instead of hiring roof repair services, you do it yourself.
Determine the leak’s location, gather your supplies, and repair the leak by replacing the shingles. When replacing the shingles, use the proper tools and avoid damaging the adjacent shingles. Attach the new shingles with the roof cement to ensure that everything is sealed, including the rubber seals and flashings.
It is critical to conduct a thorough roof assessment to determine which roof areas have leaks. Inspect the roof for missing or poorly attached shingles and broken seals and flashings.
