If you have experienced water coming into your home due to a roof leak, you know how frustrating a leaky roof can be. Preventing a leaky roof requires expertise to diagnose where the problem originates. Armor Xteriors is dedicated to helping our clients through these tough times, by fixing roofs or providing guidance on how to avoid and prevent these situations before they occur.
Have Your Roof Installed Correctly The First Time
This seems like a no brainer, but really it is the most import tip. If you have roof issues like leakage, likely it’s because your roof is either at the end of its life, or it was never installed properly in the first place. The best way method of preventing a leaky roof is to hire a reputable contractor that does it right the first time around. We have seen roofs all throughout the Chattanooga and North Georgia areas that have been repaired, coated, patched. In most of these situations, there are technical details related to the installation that is vitally important to ensure your roof is long-lasting and prevents water from entering your home. This is where working with a quality team that employs quality technicians can make all the difference. Why invest at half-price multiple times to end up with a roof that still doesn’t function properly, when you can make the decision to have it done the right way on your first go?
If You Have A New Roof That Is Installed Correctly, Get It Inspected Every Few Years
Like any investment, whether it be a car, a boat, or a new kitchen — a new roof requires maintenance. To assume that you can set it and forget it may work for a couple of years, but over the lifetime of your roof, or any investment, a little bit of maintenance throughout the years will lead to a more successful lifetime performance when all is said and done. Not only will this help in preventing a leaky roof, but also ensure the structural integrity of the roof over its lifespan.
We always advise homeowners NOT to make repairs themselves. If you use certain products or install repair products incorrectly, you can void the warranty on your existing roof, or create a problem that can only be remedied with a roof replacement. For instance, we have seen homeowners install Flexseal, Henry’s Patching, and coating products to their detriment. Often times, roofing contractors cannot perform additional roofing work overtop of these products if a homeowner decides to take things into their own hands.
