The dangers of a leaky roof go beyond the possibility of internal flooding in your house. When the leak itself becomes too big, it can cause extensive damage to the whole roof. In cases like this, repairing the leak would no longer be enough to prevent further damage or the total destruction of your roof.
A leaky roof can cause extensive damage to your home and its contents. Sometimes the solution can’t be fixed with a simple leak repair. Your roof should be inspected and repaired immediately if you begin to notice damage to your roof. This can prevent leaks and buy some time before a complete re-roof is necessary.
Inspect the roof of your home for:
- Loose or popped nails
- Loose or missing flashing around vent pipes, chimneys, or wall junctions
- Cracks or gaps in caulked areas
- Holes in the valleys
At Lifetime Roofing, we know that roof damage sometimes can’t be fixed with a simple leak repair. That’s why, as part of our complete services, we also provide reroofing throughout Bountiful, Utah.
When we do our roof retrofitting, we don’t necessarily tear off your home’s existing roof and replace it with a new one. This isn’t really necessary in most cases, and that’s why we often suggest simple reroofing for our Bountiful clients.
We retrofit all types of roofs – from tiled and metal, to flat roofs and shingles. Our team comes complete with the necessary materials to make the retrofitted roof look like your existing roof, while increasing its overall strength to better handle the elements.
When leaks become too extensive, a full retrofit or reroofing is necessary to prevent further damage not just to your roof, but for your entire house as well. Our team of roofing professionals is always happy to discuss your retrofitting and reroofing needs, so if you think your roof is past a simple leak repair.
