Any roof leak is a major headache for any homeowner, especially if the leak is hard to locate or fix. A leak can develop up to 10 feet away from the source because of things like horizontal roof boards. Among roof leaks, this is the most common. While hiring a professional roofing company is an option, knowing your home’s structure is beneficial.

Fields of Shingles

If your home has an older roof or you haven’t received regular maintenance, leaks can develop easily within or under the shingles. The most obvious signs of a leak in a single nail, are missing granules and cracks but can be as subtle as a misplaced nail.

Two roof planes

Another common place for leaks to occur on roofs is the valley formed by the intersection of two roof planes. Incorrectly trimmed shingles can allow water to seep through the shingles and into your home.

Chimneys

Chimneys are both attractive and functional but can be a headache when it comes to roofing. All four types of flashing on a chimney must be in good working order for there to be no leaks. A lot of precision is required, even when counterflashing the leads into the brick mortar joints. Small cracks above flashings can allow water to rush in behind them and into your home, even if it is not visible.

Vents

Roof flashing directs water away from leaky areas of the roof with a thin layer of galvanized steel. This applies to areas around plumbing and heating vents. Inadequate flashings, on the other hand, can come loose and cause significant leaks. It is critical to check your plumbing and furnace vent flashings regularly to detect them early.

  • Customer service is top notch. I had some wind damage to my roof and Denis came out to take a look and give me an estimate. He was prompt, engaging, attentive and answered all of the questions I had regarding insurance and financing. I opted to go the repair route for now (for insurance reasons only) but will be replacing my roof in the next few years and calling Lifetime Roof & Solar to do the job.

  • Lifetime Roof and Solar was a great company to repair my damage roof. I worked with a very professional, knowledgeable, and skilled crew that gave my house a fresh look. Very appreciative to find a hard working company and will definitely hire again for any future roofing needs! Thank you!

  • We had a new roof put on our house with Lifetime and we cannot say enough about how great this company was to work with. Alex was so very helpful. From the beginning we we filed a claim, all through the insurance process and to the end when it was finished. The crew came early and finished the entire project in one day. Everything was cleaned up at the end and the work was fabulous. We would highly recommend this company for any roofing needs.

  • I had such an incredible experience with Alex! He was my project manager from start to finish and went out of his way to explain every step of the process from beginning to end. He has such a nice, easy going attitude and you can tell that he is very experienced in the roofing industry. He always told me straight up whether he recommended something and made the process very smooth. I'm a person who has A LOT of questions and he was always very patient in answering all of them for me and was very thorough. I cannot recommend Lifetime enough and cannot praise Alex enough for his professionalism, kindness, and expertise!

  • I highly recommend Lifetime Roof & Solar. We are very happy with the work they did replacing our roof. Their workers are reliable, fast, efficient and friendly. Our Project Manager did a fantastic job of communicating with us and coordinating with our insurance company. Due to his efforts and exceptional customer service, the entire project went smoothly, timely and efficiently. Thank you for a job well done.
