Dealing with persistent roof leaks can be frustrating, especially if they suddenly appear as soon as repairs are completed. Local roof replacement contractor Home Pro Exteriors, Inc. takes a closer look at some of the possibilities as to why this happens to some homeowners.
Existing Issue Not Related to Your Roof
The leaks are likely coming not from the roof itself but somewhere around it. The roofers might have missed out on the problem when they performed the inspection and applied the repairs.
The roofers might have missed out on checking the other areas of the roof due to difficulties in locating the primary source of the leak. What they thought to be the only leak they fixed might be one of many that are present. Or, the problem is not the roof at all.
Movement of Water
Water finds a path of least resistance so it can flow. The same happens in the context of your roof leaks. Fixing one side of the roof while failing to address the other side that is equally problematic will cause water to go to that area, causing new leaks to appear. A reliable roofing contractor will first perform a thorough roof inspection before carrying out the necessary roof repair.
A persistent leak following a repair is also a sign that you hired a less-qualified contractor for the job. Those who charge lower rates cut corners just to save on costs, doing so by using low-quality roofing materials and carrying out repairs that are not within industry standards.
