Roof Repair Reasons


The most common reason to repair the roof is to fix the leaks around chimneys, flashings, skylights and seams. As these places have joints or sticks up to the roof, they’re easily prone to leakage. It is also common to see leakage near the vent stacks. This is the area where the slope section of the roof meets, making it a weak spot for easy leakage. While installing, flashings are installed in these spots to avoid leakage. However, if flashings are not done properly wear and tear will cause leakage eventually.


Weather conditions:

  • You can check with the house owner’s insurance agent if the damages caused by weather on the roof are covered under the policy.
