The roof is an integral part of any house. But just like any other part of your house, the roof is also susceptible to damages and leaks.

3) Spray the roof

Take the garden hose in your hands and go on the roof and begin spraying in various locations across the roof to locate the leak. However, this policy is good in summers only and do not ever think of doing it during wintertime as it is never safe to spray water on the roof in freezing temperatures.

4) Livermore CA 94550 Keep the gutters clean

The most common cause of a roof leak is the clogged gutter. A clogged gutter will always cause buildup of water whenever there is a reasonable amount of rainfall.

5) Avoid dry rot

This problem is not exactly related to water damage but mainly due to shortage of ventilation. If the repair is right at the center of the roof then it is Livermore CA 94550 most likely due to deterioration of the plywood. If it is so, then the roof will begin to sag and the shingles will begin to become brittle, cracked and will eventually start to leak. If you hope to prevent dry rot then you need to install a ridge vent. However, this ridge vent will only function when a soffit vent is installed.

6) Prevent the Livermore CA 94550 buildup of ice

During winter, ice can easily build up under the gutters, shingles and the roof membrane. The ice generally builds back up right at the point in the line of the wall where the house is heated thereby creating an interior drip.

7) Fix the roof boots

Skylights are obvious places for leaks, but one thing we miss is the necessity of having rubber boots. You can purchase a new pair of roof boots at any hardware store.

8) Inspect the materials

If the shingles are faulty then they will start to crack even after they have been successfully nailed down. Faulty installation with shingles and nails play a Livermore CA 94550 big part in leaks. If the nails are nailed too low then they will start pushing up. So do check your equipment before getting on the roof.

9) Check valleys

The intersection where the two roofs come together is known as a valley. These are known to be very common places for leaks because this is the place where the water from the roof accumulates and Livermore CA 94550 it will eventually start sloshing.

10) Eliminate leaks

Still unable to locate the leaks even after trying for the umpteenth time? Do not get discouraged easily. It is, after all, a part of the process of elimination which involves planning and loads of patience.
