Roof Repairs Based on Your Needs
At Worcester Roofing, our technicians will do a detailed analysis your roof and document every issue before we recommend the best course of action. We also take into account factors such as the age of your roof, any obstructions such as skylights or chimneys, which can make repairs more difficult, and ensuring the repair job blends seamlessly with the old roofing.
The extent of roof repairs depends on the extent of damage. In worst case scenarios, an entire new roof installation may be the best course of action. However, in some cases, you may only need to do a simple patch job or partial roof repair.
We also offer fire, storm, wind damage repair services! Each one is specially targeted to address your needs and those of your home or business.
The Dangers of a Leaky Roof
Putting off making any sort of repairs to your roof can lead to even greater trouble down the line. You may even need to do a full roof replacement long before you would have to otherwise! When you notice a problem with your roof, do something about it.
Leaking roofs in particular pose a problem because the leaks can wreak havoc on the structure in your home, damaging wood framing and drywall, as well as insulation. They can also affect wiring, paint, carpeting, and your possessions. Water can lead to mold growth as well, which must be removed.
With the winter weather in Central Massachusetts, you also need to be careful of ice dams. Ice dams typically form after a heavy snowfall. A barrier of ice forms at the edge of the roof, which prevents melted snow from running off. Instead, it pools up, and if not tended to, can work its way into your home unexpectedly. In addition to destroying the roof and flooding the interior of your home, ice damming can damage the exterior of your home as well.
However, ice buildup isn't the only contributing factor. The quality and amount of insulation in your attic, as well as ventilation, also play a role.
Finding Leaks Yourself
Finding a leak is often more complicated than eliminating it. If you know you have a leak, you can call in the experts right away. However, you can also use a few simple DIY techniques to find minor leaks yourself.
Most leaks actually form not in the middle of a roof, but around the skylights, chimneys, ventilation pipes, and other objects that cut into your roof, so they should be your first suspects. Inspect the areas around these features and look for water.
You can spot leaks by also looking for water stains, black streaks, or even mold. A good place to start searching for the source of the leaks is "uphill" of these markers, because the water will run down from the entry point.
