Our Roof Leak Repair Services
Leaks should never be ignored. While it may appear as though they will resolve themselves on their own, leaking roofs will only worsen over time and should be addressed immediately by hiring our roofing service to locate and fix its source before becoming more severe.
Water stains on the ceiling are typically the first indication of roof leakage. This should serve as a warning sign, as water seepage can have serious repercussions to a home. Leaks can result from many different causes – cracks in shingles that have come loose, ice dams forming on gutters, broken flashing or gutters and downspouts as well as defective gutters and downspouts may all play their parts.
Leaks can be difficult to detect as they travel throughout different parts of a roof. A good way to discover them is to switch off all internal lighting and use a flashlight to look for damp areas of the ceiling. Also be on the lookout for any framing wood that has discolored, as well as for any that rotted or discolored during their lifespan, along with binocular inspection of where shingles come together or caulking and flashing has been compromised.
If you still cannot identify the leak, it may be best to contact our professional roofing contractors.
Residential Roof Leak Repair Indianapolis
Your roof’s purpose is to shield you and your family from the elements outside, but a leak can create havoc within. Moisture damage caused by leakage can destroy walls, flooring coverings, wood framing and ceiling tiles while creating mold or mildew which could harm your health as well as increasing energy bills due to damp drywall insulation.
Cost estimates to repair a leaky residential roof depend on its cause and location of leakage, such as missing shingles, cracked or broken flashing along seams or damaged chimneys/vents; while leakage from gutters/downspouts can also prove expensive to fix.
Finding a leak can be tricky. A good place to begin is looking for signs of discoloration and staining on the attic floor; water from leakage in an attic may create brown stains on ceilings and damage paint as well as expand plaster.
Puddles on the ground that indicate issues with roof drainage system should also be checked for. You can do so by taking steps such as removing some shingles in a suspected area, then inspecting the underlayer felt paper for water-stained or rotted wood, before checking pipe vent boots for cracks, rot, or exposed nails that might indicate trouble.
Commercial Roof Leak Repair Indianapolis
Commercial, industrial or manufacturing roof leaks can create a hazardous working environment for employees and equipment, while leading to mold growth, mildew, water damage, wood rot and other structural problems.
We can help reduce interior damage and avoid expensive repairs by providing prompt repairs. Furthermore, we can prevent future issues by conducting annual maintenance visits that inspect your roof for leaks that need repairing before they become larger issues.
First and foremost, you must identify the source of the leak. Puddles or dripping water inside of the building are telltale signs; but other sources include wet sprinkler piping and conduits, wet ductwork or structural elements that leak water. To ensure accurate identification, walk through the affected area while it rains to help pinpoint its source; once identified mark its position with brightly-colored tape so we, your roofers, can locate it upon return.
As soon as a roof leak has occurred, it is crucial that you contact your insurance agent as quickly as possible and determine whether the costs incurred by its interior damage are covered by your policy. Most policies do offer some level of coverage here, and an experienced agent can work with you to identify which costs fall under this category. In some instances, even under warranty from the manufacturer!
