MJ Home Services LLC provides roof repair services across Baltimore! We specialize in roof repairs associated with water damage. Our team is highly trained and goes through a systematic process to properly repair your roof and guarantee no more leaks! Unlike some of the local competition where they immediately repair the external side of the roof, we start off on the interior, removing any damaged drywall and plaster (if any). We then identify the source of the leak before proceeding with the external roof repair.
What is a Roof Leak?
A roof leak can be costly if left for too long, especially if water leaks all over your carpet and other objects in your home. A roof leak can also be extremely dangerous if water leaks over electrical appliances or wiring in your roof. Don’t risk leaving a roof leak till it’s too late! Roof leaks present multiple challenges for homeowners. They never occur at a time which is convenient and they can lead to significant damage to the interior of your home. Their effects can linger long after the repair has been made in the form of mold growth on the interior surfaces of your home.
Reasons Why Your Roof is Leaking
If you find out that your roof has a leak problem, you may be at risk for significant water damage and severe dangers if it is left alone. Leaks may not be taken very seriously, and sometimes may only get a bucket as a “solution”. But leaks should not be underestimated because of the amount of damage that they can cause. If you are unsure about the severity of your leakage problem, you should always contact a professional first. They will be able to tell you how fast you should get the problem repaired so that you can prevent any future disasters. Below are some of the reasons for leaky roofs.
Skylights Can be a Problem
Although built-in skylights can really add that extra sense of beauty to a home and let in natural light, they can cause a lot of problems when not built properly. If they are too old or haven’t been updated recently, they can easily let water into the home. If you find that the downhill slope seems to be filling with water easily, it will most likely cause a leak in the future.
Flashing is Most Common
Because of harsh weather, flashing on different places of your roof may become easily damaged over time. Flashing is the most common reason why roofs acquire leaks. Sometimes, flashing is poorly installed which makes it highly susceptible to leaks. If it’s not the installation, it may have to do with substandard materials. Either way, if your flashing is damaged, you are more than likely going to develop a leak over time.
