I Have a Roof Leak. What Do I Do?

Full Service Building Contractors

“Quality You Can Trust.”

If you have a roof leak, it is important to address the problem as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your home. Here are some steps you can take to fix a roof leak:

Locate the source of the leak: The first step in fixing a roof leak is to determine the source of the leak. This can be difficult, as water can travel through the roof and appear in a different location than where the leak is actually located. Look for any visible signs of damage, such as missing or damaged shingles, and try to follow the path of the water to determine the source of the leak. 

Repair or replace damaged materials: Once you have located the source of the leak, you will need to repair or replace any damaged materials. This may involve patching a hole in the roof, replacing a damaged shingle, or sealing a gap around a flashing. 

Check for any underlying problems: In some cases, a roof leak may be caused by an underlying problem, such as a damaged roof deck or a clogged gutter. It is important to check for these problems and address them in order to prevent further leaks. Inspect the rest of the roof: 

After fixing the leak, it is a good idea to inspect the rest of the roof to ensure that there are no other problems. Look for any missing or damaged shingles, check the flashing around protrusions, such as chimneys or skylights, and check the condition of the gutters.

Written estimates: Get written estimates from several contractors to compare prices and services. Make sure the estimates are detailed and include all the materials and labor needed for the job. Central Florida Equity Builders provides written estimates for our customers so you understand all of the factors that go into the cost of your new roof installation. We also now provide instant online quotes!

Warranty: Choose a contractor who offers a warranty on their work. A good warranty will cover any defects in materials or workmanship and provide peace of mind that your roof will be properly protected. Here at Central Florida Equity Builders, we stand behind our work and will do what is necessary to fix any defects in your new roof if they are to occur.

5. Communication: Look for a contractor who is responsive and easy to communicate with. A good contractor will listen to your concerns and answer your questions in a timely manner. Here at Central Florida Equity Builders, we are quick to respond to all of our potential, current, and past customers. We can be reached via phone, email, or our online chat feature.

If you are unable to fix the leak yourself or if you are unsure of how to do so, it is a good idea to consult a professional roofing contractor like Central Florida Equity Builders. A professional roofer will be able to diagnose the problem accurately and provide a long-term solution to fix the leak.

Overall, it is important to address a roof leak as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your home. By following these steps, you can fix a roof leak and protect your home from further damage.
