What to Do When Your Discover a Roof Leak
Finding a leak in your roof can cause your heart to sink. While the first thing that comes to your mind is the cost to fix the leak, thoughts can then arise about how long the leak has been there and if any other damage has been done to your home. However, here are some things to consider that will make it more manageable after spotting a leak.
After spotting a leak, check your warranty or insurance information. This could ultimately save you a lot of time, effort, and money.
If you spot a leak, it is a good idea to conduct an inspection yourself to find the source of the leak. However, it is wise to then bring in a professional to conduct an inspection. Small leaks in a roof can be indicative of much larger problems. The professional will be more apt to spot these problems, which can save you money in the future.
If, after conducting your inspection, you notice the leak is isolated and no other damage has been done, you can fix it yourself relatively easily. We should note that you should only fix the leak yourself if you are comfortable working on your roof. If you are not comfortable, contact a professional.
