Roof leaks are one of the common problems that plague many Missouri homes and businesses. If your roof is suffering from leaks, it can result in extensive, costly damage if not attended to immediately. Over the years, we have found that a lot of roof leaks often go unnoticed until major damage has appeared, increasing the risk to structural integrity. To help you prevent major roofing issues, Koziatek Contracting, Inc. can provide leak detection and roof repairs services. These will also help you avoid future leak problems altogether.
What Our Leak Detection and Roof Repair Services Include
A leaky roof is never good news. The first thing you need to do is to find the exact source of the leak, and then you have to get it fixed. The time you spend meticulously investigating where the leak is coming from is time you could be spending on other things, all of which would probably be more relaxing and hassle-free. Koziatek Contracting can help minimize the frustration and expense by handling your leak problems quickly and professionally with our roof repairs services.
The first factor we would look into is determining whether you’re really dealing with a roof leak or not. Verification is important, because in some cases, the leak isn’t actually coming from a roofing issue, but from inefficient HVAC systems or an existing plumbing situation, such as a loose valve or a leaky pipe. After determining that the actual source of moist and wet spots is a roof leak, we can now identify where and how moisture is getting in. We look for various problems, such as:
- Broken or missing shingles — This is more likely to happen if you have an old system, probably over 15 or 20 years old. Shingle issues can allow moisture to penetrate the underlayment, creating entryways to the ceiling and walls. We can look at the roof and see if it makes sense to simply repair the damage or if it would be more cost-effective to get a replacement.
- Flashing failure — Proper flashing is important, as it seals up the part where the roof meets the chimney or a wall. If incorrectly installed, water will find a way in over time. We’ll make sure to replace damaged flashings to ensure a healthy roof performance for many years.
- Loose nails — You’d be surprised how much water can enter through one tiny nail hole. Spotting this problem early can result in a quick fix.
