Reasons Your Roof May Be Leaking

In Tucson, many do-it-yourself homeowners will often be perplexed when it comes to more technical things like roof repair – and especially so when those repairs involve roof leaks.

It’s difficult to determine exactly why your roof may be leaking, but there are several possibilities you should consider, most of which require hiring a professional roof contractor like Alan Bradley to administer the repairs.

 

Possibilities for roof leaks include, but are not limited to, the following:

Shingles or Shakes Missing

With missing/blown-off shingles or shakes your roof could easily obtain water ingress and begin leaking into your home. For a few shakes or shingles, DIY is possible, but most often you’ll want to hire a professional.

Large Object Damage

To state the obvious: large tree limbs or other falling objects can easily puncture a hole into your roofing system. This is often easy to diagnose, but shouldn’t be taken lightly or fixed without the help of a roofing contractor like Alan Bradley.

Moisture Back-up Around Penetrations

This can be more prominent in places with more snowfall, but with the monsoons we get in Tucson precipitation could very well back-up and puddle near vents, chimneys, and other such penetrations.

As such, your roof may begin to leak if the integrity of the roofing around those penetrations fails to uphold the backed-up moisture.

Life Expectancy Expired

A more common occurrence when I comes to roof leaks is simply that the roofing system itself is outdated or expired. If your roof is old and it’s time for a replacement, don’t wait!

Get the job done before any leaks or other such problems begin to eat away at your home!

Poor Installation by Roof Contractor

An unfortunate possibility is also that your previous roof contractor has poorly installed your roofing system and it is leaking due to this disservice.

No sweat! Call Alan Bradley and we’ll consult you to see what your best option is to fix the installation issues.

If your roof has flashing installed around skylights, chimneys, etc., then it’s very possible that storm damage or damage by other service workers could potentially cause leaking in those areas.

Keep in mind also that holes in your flashing are in immediate need of repair.

 

Most homeowners can handle fixing or preventing minor damages, even to their rooftops, but roof leaks specifically can be rather tricky, and that is exactly why we recommend hiring a contractor instead.

This is simply because a failed roof leak repair can only make things much worse, in that your roof’s integrity may be further compromised without you being aware.

A full roof replacement can be quite expensive, so you wouldn’t want to risk such a costly investment by stubbornly overlooking the potential damage that roof leaks can cause to your home.

Consult with Alan Bradley Roofing of Tucson AZ if your roof is leaking and we’ll be sure to get your roof repaired in no time!

Alan Bradley Roof Repair Tucson AZ

When it comes to roof repair in Tucson AZ, think Alan Bradley. We do everything from replacing shingles, to coating flat roofs, and even fixing leaks and addressing ventilation problems.

Our number one suggestion for any homeowner asking themselves whether or not their roof needs to be repaired is – don’t wait!

Roof repair is never something to wait on. The longer you wait the more costly it becomes. If it gets bad enough you may just want to stretch your roof’s life until it needs to be fully replaced, but even then you’ll be costing yourself extra money.

That’s because the wooden sheathing underneath could become rotted and severely damaged to the point where not only do you need a whole new roof, but you also need it’s structural base completely replaced as well. Avoid costly roof repairs in Tucson AZ by calling Alan Bradley. We assess the problem for you with a free estimate and give you the most optimal solution to save you money not only now, but also in the future.

Often times your best solution may involve more than one roofing service. For example, if we repair roof leaks, we’ll typically suggest an elastomeric coating too, to prevent any further problems with your roof’s already penetrable sealing. You may not realize it, but your roof is something that requires essentially constant maintenance.  As such, we prefer to evaluate your whole roof and not just the problem you’ve identified.

Much of the work we do involves revitalizing flat roofs, as most homes or businesses in Tucson fall under this category. There are plenty of pitched roofs in the area as well, and even some homes that have wooden or tile shingles.

Alan Bradley covers a variety of roofing services in Tucson AZ and our knowledgeable staff is always happy to help you set up an appointment and provide a free and accurate assessment of what your roof does and doesn’t need. Trust us and your home will thank you!
