When it comes to leaky roofs, some people consider repairing their roofs themselves, choosing to just do a quick-and-easy fix thinking it’s a cheaper solution to a minor roofing problem. Yes, it might initially be a low cost option. However, this might be just a first and expensive step in ultimately solving the problem.
That’s because a roof leak, no matter how small, is not simply a minor problem. Even small leaks can worsen over time and could lead to more serious damage. And if that’s the case, you will end up having to pay more for repairing not just your leaky roof, but the other parts of your house that may have been damaged.
In addition to posing a threat to your home’s structural integrity, leaks can also lead to other safety concerns. Puddles of water can easily collect in your home, such as on the floors, where people may easily slip and fall.
You also have to consider the health issues a leaky roof can pose to your family—leaky roofs that are not repaired properly can lead to mold and mildew growth in attics, sheathing and decking. If you have someone in your family who is allergic to fungi, then this can lead to serious health problems.
With so many issues a leak can lead to such as your home’s structural integrity and your family’s safety and health, cutting corners and using do-it-yourself fixes for a leaky roof just won’t cut it.
