Do You Have Suspicious Stains On Your Ceiling?

Do you have any of the following Issues?

Stains on your ceiling. Water dripping from a recessed light fixture. Your chimney has wet masonry. A stream of water is running down your wall or dripping from a window well.

If any of these events are happening in your home you must have a roof leak, right? An appointment with a  Liverpool roofer is made. He checks the roof and tells you that some patch work will remedy the situation. The work is done, the roofer is paid but you have the same problem the next time there is a rain storm.

That’s not how we work!

What happened? There are a number of problems other than those associated with your roof that can cause moisture to enter your home.

Leakage can occur when wood or vinyl siding has been damaged, has worn out or was improperly installed. Wind driven rain can force water past the siding where it gets behind the flashing and into the roof system.

Masonry wall or chimney leaks can occur when these components deteriorate due to long term exposure the weather. The mortar can break loose from the bricks or even fall out allowing moisture to be forced into the structure where it runs down and can show up inside the home. Concrete block walls can be come porous and absorb water. These conditions can show up much earlier if the masonry work was not done correctly.

Mechanical intrusion is another source of leaks. Holes in rusted vent pipes can allow water access.

Satellite dishes, antennas, lightning rod systems or Christmas decorations with fasteners that pierce the roof can leak if not sealed properly. You may even need some replacement Guttering Liverpool?

Many homes have flat roof sections. If you have an HVAC unit on a flat section of your roof, leaky duct work can allow moisture to enter the home.

Our roof repairs Liverpool based company have also encountered some apparent roof leaks that don’t even originate at the roof level! We have found that second story windows with caulking that has deteriorated or frames that have split open can produce roof leaks on the first floor.

There have been several instances where a vent pipe installed thru a wall on an upper floor has admitted water and produced a leak condition on a lower floor. We have responded to leak calls that have been broken water pipes, leaking bathtubs and even dripping HVAC units located in attics!

The first call of action is to contact a roofer and let them detect your problems as they’ve seen it all before
