A leaking asphalt roof on your MD home can be caused by many things.
Old, worn shingles… Rotted roof decking… Torn underlayment… And storm damage…
But there’s actually another cause, which is quite common and inexpensive to fix.
First…let me ask you…
Have you had any work done on your home’s exterior in the last 3-4 years?
- New siding installed
- Exterior painting
- New gutters installation
- New windows installed
- Antennas or satellite dish removed or replaced
- Or any other work that required staging to be used
If you answered yes, there’s a possibility you’ve already had a leak, or you will get one in the near future.
Because these home improvement projects usually require drilling holes in your roof for staging, bracing, or mounting.
The problem is that most crews either don’t seal the holes left behind when they’re done, or they improperly seal them with caulk that doesn’t adhere to the tar, or that will crack and fail after a few years, causing water leaking into your home..
Either way, your roof will eventually leak. And you don’t want your roof to leak!
(Of course, if you hired us, you won’t have to worry about this)
