A professional roofer knows the tricks that water can play, so don’t risk climbing onto your roof and searching for the source yourself. Alden Roofing provides fast, reliable, and Top Rated Local® leak detection and roof leak repair services for Texas residents.
When locating a leak, remember that water can’t run uphill, so leaks on a pitched roof cannot be below where you see evidence of a leak. Water can enter through exposed nail holes or an area with missing shingles, traveling over old layers of roof and roofing felt until it reaches a gap or tear that allows it to penetrate to the roof deck. From there, it may run over the plywood until it crosses a joint – whereupon it may resume its journey along a rafter or the underside of the decking.
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 the leak’s 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.
Over time, even the best roofing system can develop problems. The good news is that we can replace shingles and repair a leaky roof caused by wind damage, hail damage or general wear and tear that’s inherent to living in Texas. If your roof needs to be replaced, we provide quality roof installations and roofing services at a reasonable price.
Repairing a leak may be as simple as troweling roofing cement over old, cracked flashing, or as involved as replacing a large area of wind-torn shingles. Alden Roofing’s roofing experts can handle any type of roof repair, including those that involve replacing fractured or rotted rafters and rotted decking. We take care to match the existing shingle color and texture as closely as possible. Ultimately, we’re here to make sure Texans have roofs that they trust and love.
