Roof leaks cost building owners thousands of dollars in repairs and replacement every year. Preventing leaks is key, but when a leak does occur, you can help your contractor track down your leak by having a few facts on hand for them when they arrive. If you need roof leak detection in Moon, PA, call Capital Coating now at (717) 442-0979 to schedule your evaluation, and we will find that leak.
When a contractor goes to a building that has a sloped roof, he usually locates the leak pretty easily. Because water flows downward, the contractor can simply find the discolored or wet spot on the ceiling of the interior of the building, and follow it directly upwards. Flat roof leak detection can be more difficult, though. Since the roof has no slope, the water from the leak travels out in any direction from the leak. Tracing the leak back to one original location can be hard, but there are a few things that you can do to aid your roofing contractor in your roof leak detection in Moon, PA.
First, your contractor will have a few questions for you that will help to track down the source of your leak so that it can be fixed. Having the answers to these questions ready can save time and avoid multiple visits.
- What date did the leak start?
- Does your roof leak more during a specific time of day?
- Did you leak begin during a rainstorm?
- Was the rain light or heavy?
- Did your leak stop when the rain stopped?
- How long after the rain stopped did your roof leak?
- Can you show me the exact location that the leak appeared?
It will also be very beneficial to your roofing contractor if you can mark the exact spot of the leak as it is happening.
