Roof Leak Repair – How To Repair Leaky Roof?
Roof leak repair jobs are most often situations that need to be handled as emergencies. Small problems like roof damage, missing shingles, cracked shingles, blistered or curled shingles are just a few problems that can cause leaks. Most often than not entire roof replacement has to be done only every 15 years or so. Sometimes, if the roof is installed and maintained well, it can last its stated life-time of 30 years or more. The most difficult part of repairing leaks is to locate the exact location of it.
Most roof leak repair tasks can be fairly simple to accomplish provided we know what to fix and how to fix. If you see a damaged shingle then you know it needs to be fixed. For example a caulking gun or roofing cement will be needed to re-attach curled shingles and they can be straightened out in warm weather when the shingle is flexible. In cold weather they can be brittle and can get damaged if they are flattened out. A propane torch can be applied to the shingle to make it flexible and then the shingle straightened out carefully.
