Tackling a roof repair anew after the initial job has been done to fix a leak is something that homeowners experience quite often. It can be frustrating, but there are times when a lot of trial and error must be done before a roofing issue gets resolved once and for all.
Today, the emergency roof repair pros of Barnett Roofing discusses the possible reasons why a roof may still leak even after it has been fixed.
- Another Existing Issue Apart from the Roof
The leaks are likely coming not just from the roof itself but from somewhere around it. A contractor may have missed it when the roof was first checked and repaired.
- Wrong Diagnosis
This is somehow related to the first point. The difficulty of locating the leak can make a contractor miss out on the other areas of the roof. Because of this, the pros may not be able to address each leak. It could also be possible that the problem is not the roof after all.
- Water Finding Its Way to Other Areas
It is also likely that the contractor may have carried out the damaged roof repair on one area of the roof while ignoring the same issue on the other. As a result, the water may go to that side, causing new leaks to appear there. A reputable roofer will inspect the whole roof first before proceeding with the repairs.
- Repairs Using the Wrong Materials
Many homeowners commit the mistake of hiring qualified contractors that don’t only charge lower rates but also use substandard materials. Since they’re in it to get a quick buck, they haphazardly finish the job, leaving homeowners to deal with unfinished repairs and persistent leaks.
