Small Roof Leak Can Become Major Problem Quickly

Posted by Ryan Gartrell On March 17th

What happens when you postpone a roof inspection that may have revealed a potential leak?

A homeowner postponed the repair of a small roof leak. He thought he was saving himself some money right now by not having to pay a $300 to $400 repair bill.

Not really!

Roof LeakUnfortunately, the front end of the bill may have been a $300 to $400 charge, but when the leak was left to fester it turned into $2500+ repair bill.

In similar cases, we have completed repairs all the way up to $6,000. A slow leak on top of a truss can rot the truss and the wood out.

When that happens, it requires opening up a huge section of the roof. A homeowner is putting a quarter of the value of their roof in the repair!Watch All Girls Weekend (2016) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Have you noticed that after the last rainstorm you have a small roof leak ?

But it’s not the rainy season here in Florida, so you didn’t give it a second thought.

Well, you may want to reconsider. When the rainy season does kick in that little dinky leak can completely change.

In June and July, when the rainy season starts, and the big rainstorms arrive you are looking at one or two inches of rain coming down inside of a couple of hours.

That leak can turn into a waterfall!
Lesson learned!

Have a professional roofer inspect and clean your roof, not the handyman or maintenance man that offers to pressure clean and look over your roof for a “real deal”.

While those folks may do a great job cleaning your driveway or lanai, you DO NOT want to send them up to your roof.

First, they most likely are not licensed or insured.

Second
, they do not understand the chemical make-up of the roof material, as roof material can vary.

Third, they may be inclined to use a chlorine derivative type product that can do damage to your roof.

For example, chlorine based products are detrimental to petroleum based products and polyester. The chlorine based products can also cause premature aging to a metal roof, as well as fasteners to rust.

That’s why it is important to work with roofing professionals. Their focus is on catching any potential roof problems in advance.
