Roof Leaks Explained

You see the whole ball of wax in roof repairs is to find out where your roof may be leaking. In some cases it is obvious. In most cases it is not. Where you are seeing or experiencing the leak in most cases is not where the roof is actually leaking. Rain water gets in up under the shingles and travels down hill on rafters, ceiling joist and makes it way down until it starts soaking your drywall ceiling. And once a roof leak starts, they only get worse. In fact, a roof will probably be leaking for about 8 or 9 months before you actually spot it. Unlike a plumbing leak where there is a gusher coming out of the wall a roof leak is not that way. In fact, many roof leaks only leak just a little. But overtime a saturation point will be reached and your whole ceiling will just drop. Houses that have roofs leaks for a long time will have rotten ceiling joist covered with a white fungus and wood mushrooms growing on them. This only adds to your problem because the rotten framing members can not support the weight of the roof. We have seen this a-lot because most attics lack proper ventilation. This creates a perfect environment for mold and fungus growth that eats away the wood framing. Like I said this takes time to happen but when it hits a certain saturation your ceiling will fall in.


Most roof leaks can be fixed for less than $500 dollars. We do not however give free estimates on roof leaks or plumbing leaks for that matter. It is just too much work to finding out where it may be leaking. We do charge an inspection fee of $75 dollars. If you get us to do the work we will waive the inspection fee. So please give us a call today. We have helped many home owners with their roofing repair needs.

Leaking Basement
rating starrating starrating starrating starrating star

I had made several attempts to fix my wet basement. I spoke with many contractors and they were outrageous. They all told me I had to dig up my foundation and it would cost thousands of dollars. A friend of mine told me to call a handyman and see what they said. So I Did. Best call I ever made. They installed a french drain, replaced my gutters and installed Drylock to my cinder blocks. my basement hasn't leaked since. Very pleased.”
