How to Fix a Leak in Roof Systems


The reality is that the best way to address leaks is stopping them before they start. If you wait until your roof actually has a leak, it can cost a substantial amount of money to hire a service performing roof leak repair in CT, multiple visits from a contractor, and all of the accompanying stress and hassle. If you prevent a leak before it even has a chance to start, then you save substantially in the long-term.

Eagle Rivet Offers Preventative Maintenance to Stop Leaks Before they Start

We have a specialized schedule for completely reviewing the performance of commercial roof systems, our RCA (Roof Condition Analysis). If you are at all concerned about the condition of your commercial metal roofing in CT, this is the place to start, and it is completely Free. How does it work? You call us, and then we send out one of our Boston flat roofing contractors, who performs a 15-point inspection, which involves taking into account all the potential problem areas of a roof.

How are Leaks Prevented?

stanley-works-roofIf we encounter commercial roofing in CT with one or more areas where leaks are likely to occur, we’ll utilize several methods to prevent a leak. If you have a flat roof, for example, leaks are most likely to occur at low spots. You might experience what is called a “blister.”

In order to repair a blister, a commercial roofer in CT will slice it open down the middle, soak up any water if present, spread a thick coating of roof cement on the bottom edges of the blister, and then seal those edges and nail it shut with galvanized roofing nails.

If you have a wooden shake roof, we will closely inspect it for damaged shakes. If any damaged shakes are encountered, then new ones will have to be inserted in their place. We will also inspect flashing joints around chimneys or vent pipes, as well as any open roof valleys. In each section, we will take the appropriate measures to prevent future leaks from occurring.

In addition, we’ll make sure to inspect all of your home’s gutters and downspouts. Gutters that haven’t been maintained can cause basement leaks, leakage around the outskirts of your roof, and ultimately, a foundation that may not settle correctly, which leads to a very high repair cost.

Remember our FREE Roof Condition Analysis

This service is provided totally free, and we recommend you have your commercial roofing in CT inspected annually. Contact us to schedule yours today – our goal is to help you save over the long-run!
