For over 40 years Aboutowne Roofing has been repairing Oakville homes throughout the neighbourhood and surrounding area. There are several reasons why your roof could be cracked and letting in rainwater or wind drafts and our job is to find out the actual problem and provide the immediate and durable solution. Beware of fly by night contractors who do a quick temporary cover up patch instead of fixing the actual crack or leak. There are several situations that can cause a roof leak requiring roof repair.
From Cracked Shingles to Poor Attic Ventilation
It could be as simple as replacing a few shingles. Sometimes if the contractor did not install it properly, you may just have a loose or cracked shingle that needs to be replaced. Sometimes the valleys, where two planes of a the roof meet are no longer sealed. This usually happens in sloped roofs where the seal may be damaged due to old age, ice dams, or other elements. Solving this problem usually requires a new leak barrier along the valley and shingling over-top. Another issue could be that your vent booting is cracked or the mortar along the joints of the chimney needs repairing. The roof vents are the small pipes sticking out of the roof, we’ll notice dark spots and mustiness if that is the problem. The mortar on the chimney is a thick mixture of water, sand, and cement eroding in harsh conditions. Usually replacing the mortar will fix the problem.
Save Money By Repairing Your Roof Properly
Other issues can include ice dam buildup increasing water weight, decaying insulation on skylights due to improper installation, the gutter can simply be clogged backing up water opening opportunities to seep through cracks, or a result of condensation in the attic. The attic is something that many people underestimate. Without proper ventilation, you don’t only risk unnecessary leaks, but also mold growth and mildew. If you have no ventilation, this can be a serious problem and needs to be fixed to save you money in the long run.
