Roof Leak Repair

We specialize in roofing services to prevent and repair roof leaks

Common causes of roof leaks

  • Missing, cracking or damaged shingles
  • Ice Damming
  • Clogged gutters
  • Damaged flashing/joints
  • Soffit & fascia damage

One of the most common roofing problems is roof leaks. Leaks aren't always obvious, and they can exist for quite some time before they leave a stain on your ceiling or wall and you realize there's a problem. Roof leak repair begins with roof leak detection. If the rafters and underside of your roof deck are exposed, you will have an easier time of it. That being said, it's important to note that water leaks have a way of being incredibly deceptive. The spot where you see water and stains may be some distance from the actual roof damage.

The experienced roofers at Bone Dry Roofing can inspect your roof and identify the cause of your roof leak and provide you with a complete repair solution.

We don't just treat the symptoms we eliminate the leak at the source.

Roof leaks can lead to mold damage & wood rot

Finding the origin of a leak when the underside of your roof is hidden, such as with cathedral or vaulted ceilings, is a real challenge. Water can travel several feet from where it enters before showing itself. With drywall or paneling on the ceiling, it may travel even further. A small leak may not even be noticeable except during prolonged rainfall, but that doesn't mean it's harmless. Moisture inside the roof assembly can degrade insulation and promote the growth of mold and wood-rotting fungus.

With substantial leaks, you will see discoloration on your ceiling. On a horizontal ceiling, water may pool and saturate the drywall. If you see this happen, puncture the saturated area with a pencil and allow the water to drain into a large bucket until you can repair the roof. If the leak cannot be found by inspecting the roofing, a sizable section of drywall will have to be removed to pinpoint its location. Once the leak has been located, technicians will measure from reference points, such as a chimney and the ridge, so they can transfer the leak location to the roof.
