Stockton Roof Leak Repair
If a shingle roof is leaking because there is a hole in a roof shingle, I can immediately think of at least 4 ways to repair that hole all of which will stop the leak, but only one is correct.
- Put mastic over the hole.
- Put mastic over the hole with matching surfacing.
- Slide a shingle under the damaged shingle & seal it in place (underneath).
- Replace the damaged shingle just as the old one was when new.
Yes it’s #4, the only correct method to repair a shingle roof leak caused by a damaged composition shingle.
One out of four roofing contractors will use method 4 while the rest use 1,2 or 3 as their regular shingle roof leak repair method.
Why does it matter as long as the leak stops?
The main reasons are:
- Longevity of Roof Repair
- Roof Aesthetics
- Roof Warranty Issues
And that is just the beginning. Shingle roofs are by far the easiest to repair, when it comes to tile, flat or shake roofing the roof leak repair methods we see are all over the map with no real regard for industry standards & no regulation or enforcement of any kind on a community level.
