Fall - Check your roof for leaks before the winter precipitation comes!
Water-test Roof and Flashing
• Ensure the integrity of your roof
• Avoid costly repairs
• Protect your home
Your roof is exposed to driving rains, scorching sun, high winds, and punishing snow and ice. Fall is the perfect time to check for leaks in anticipation of the coming winter.
Visible and physical examination is sometimes successful but often additional testing is needed. A roofing expert will perform a water-test. Water is introduced to the roof in order to recreate the leak. Individual building components are sprayed with water to determine their water-tight integrity. The test simulates nature, providing enough time to recreate the leak during normal and extreme weather conditions.
A professional will test:
• base and counter flashingWhen a deficiency is located it will be properly noted and repaired.
• shingle installation
• wall and window components
• chimney flashing
• mechanical equipment
