Although your roof leak my come from any number of reasons, there are three that we’ve found lead to more roof leak repair in Knoxville than any others. No matter which roofing company you call, they should do a thorough roofing inspection to determine the source of your leak.
1. Poorly Installed or Sealed Flashing
Your flashing is what goes around your roof protrusions. Things like dormers, vents and chimneys have what is typically metal wrapped around them. The flashing extends under the shingles. However, it must be sealed at the top to prevent water from getting in. Sealant wears out and poorly installed flashing often leads to the need for roof leak repair in Knoxville.
2. Clogged Gutters
Gutters are part of your roofing system. When the water from your roof can’t properly drain, it ends up running over the gutters, not only in front, but between the fascia and gutter. It also backs up onto the lower edge of the roof.
3. Poorly Attached Shingles
If your shingles weren’t properly installed, they are prone to movement. When they move, often from the wind, water gets under them and you end up with a roof leak. Older roofs are more prone but if you didn’t have a good roofing company install your roof, this can happen to even a newly installed roof.
