Sometimes we get a call about a small roof repair and the homeowner asks us if we can handle it. Yes, of course, we explain. In fact, there’s no such thing as a roof repair that’s too small to be attended to. Don’t think that just because it’s just a trickle and only in a really bad or prolonged rain that you can ignore it.
Any Water in Your Attic is a Problem
Water does a lot of different damage to home, especially an attic. When you call a roofer and explain you just need a small roof repair, you may be surprised to find that the leak has already caused damage to more than you thought. Some areas that water damages include:
- Roof deck & structure
Until your roof repair company inspects the roof leak, you won’t know the full extent of the damage. You may need anything from just what you thought, to fixing or replacing the shingles to a roof deck repair and insulation replacement.
Why a Small Leak Can Grow Quickly in Winter
Admittedly we don’t often have a lot of snow in Winston-Salem. Snow is most often thought of when we say freeze-thaw cycle. However, when we have rain in the day and it freezes overnight, that small hole in your shingle or roof that has water in it grows. The next day the water melts and the larger hole has more water, freezes again and the process repeats itself the next time it freezes after a rain. Now you have a larger hole and if it happens to snow, be icy or there’s heavy prolonged rain, we can’t fix it immediately. It’s best to call for that small roof repair now.
