What are some common causes of roof leaks?
The average cost for a professional roof repair is between $600 and $650, but it varies depending on a number of factors, like the cause of the leak, the roofing material, and more.
Main causes for roof leaks include:
- Ice dams that form at the roof's edge, preventing melted snow from draining properly
- Leaks around chimney flashing and skylights caused by compromised sealants, cracks, or improper installation
- Missing or dislodged shingles from high winds or severe storms that leave your roof exposed to the elements
- Valleys that run down the interior angles of your roof are damaged
Can I repair my roof myself?
For any roofing work, it is not recommended that you handle the work yourself. This is because climbing onto a roof is dangerous, even if you have the proper safety equipment.
A professional roofer will know the proper way to repair the roof so that it lasts, saving you money in the long run. However, if you're comfortable working on your roof, you have the necessary equipment, and the repairs aren't too involved, then it is possible to repair the roof yourself.
