Roof leaks is the number one issue that your home or building can face. After all, it not just compromises the roof’s overall structure but it also encourages mold growth and the pooling water can create a hazardous environment for those in the area. With that in mind, it’s understandable if you had your roof repaired immediately. But what if the leaks continue despite the repairs?
In this post, the residential and commercial roof replacement experts of BFARR Contracting reveal the possible reasons why your newly repaired roof is still leaking.
Your Home is Settling
Settling means that your home’s foundations are beginning to move away from their initial location and unfortunately, when this happens, the repairs previously done on your roof can develop new cracks or cause the old ones to reappear.
Another possible reason as to why your newly repaired roof is leaking is a wrong diagnosis of the issue on your residential roofing replacement expert’s part. This is because finding the source of the leaks can be difficult at times, making it easy for contractors to miss where the other possible causes of leaks are, leaving them unattended to leak around your home yet again.
Wrong Materials for Repairs
Using the wrong materials for the repair project can either make the problem worse or not solve it at all. This is a common occurrence if you somehow manage to hire a contractor who is inexperienced and unqualified for the job. Their lack of skill or use of subpar materials can result in the roof’s problems not being properly repaired in the end.
Water Travelled Elsewhere
It’s possible for the water that causes leaks around your home to travel to other problematic areas of your roof. Therefore, if your contractor only repaired one area of your roof and ignored the other equally problematic areas, the water can travel to that portion and cause leaks from there instead.
