One of the major problems with a roof over time can  be the possibility of leaks. Roof leaks can be located even if you are not a professional roofer, especially with an older roof. Roofing Arlington TX has formulated a DIY way to find leaks in your roof to minimize costs and help you know when you need to call the help of a professional roofer:

  1. Check for leaks near penetration areas.
    • Common spots for leaks are through the membrane of the roof where sealants and flashings meet. Check the seams, laps and sealants regularly.
    • Experts suggest that the drains should be large enough to handle heavy storms and rains.
  2. Check for leaks around the perimeters of the roof.
    • Leaks usually occur at the roof edges.
  3. Roof leaks
    • Most roof leaks occur in January during the freezing weather. Condensation is most likely to happen at this time. It is important to inspect your roof beginning at the start of the year.

If you notice that your roof is leaking and water is entering your home, check the perimeters and penetrations. If you think the leak is caused by the age of the roof, it is best to call Roofing Arlington TX. We are just one call away and we will check your roof, offer you possible solutions and provide you the best roofing service possible.
