How to Temporarily Fix a Leaking Roof:Milwaukee Roof Repair Services

Quick fixes for a leaking roof can help minimize water damage temporarily while you await professional repairs.

  1. Place a bucket under the leak to collect dripping water.
  2. Cover the area with a tarp or plastic sheeting to prevent more water from coming in. Use heavy objects to secure it in place.
  3. If you have water trapped behind drywall or in the ceiling, poke a hole through the wall so that the water doesn't collect there or spread.
  4. Temporarily patch the hole by using roof cement, silicone, or rubber sealant. Roof cement is ideal for dry conditions, silicone is great for small holes, and rubber sealants work well, especially when you need to make a temporary repair in wet conditions.
  5. Clogged gutters can contribute to roof leaks. Ensure that gutters and downspouts are clear of debris.
  6. If the leak is due to ice dams, safely remove the snow from the roof using a roof rake.

Common roof repair services we offer:

Roof repairs depend on the roofing material and specific issues. Contact our skilled Milwaukee roofing contractors to evaluate problems, offer precise solutions, and ensure proper repairs. 

  • Roof Leaks: Roof leaks occur when water penetrates the roofing material. Repairing roof leaks involves identifying the source of the leak and applying appropriate patches or sealants to prevent further water infiltration. This may include replacing damaged shingles or addressing issues with the roofing underlayment.

  • Shingle Replacement: Shingle replacement is needed when individual shingles become damaged, cracked, or missing. This repair involves removing the damaged shingles and replacing them with new ones to ensure the roof's protective barrier is intact.

  • Flashing Repair: Flashing refers to the metal strips installed around chimneys, vents, and other roof protrusions to prevent water entry. Flashing repair involves fixing or replacing damaged flashing to maintain a watertight seal and prevent leaks.

  • Gutter Maintenance: Clogged or damaged gutters can lead to water overflow, causing damage to the roof, siding, and foundation. Regular maintenance is crucial to prevent these issues.

  • Soffit and Fascia Repair: Soffit and fascia are essential components that protect the roof structure and enhance its appearance. Soffit and fascia repair involves fixing or replacing damaged or rotted boards to maintain the integrity of the roof's eaves.

  • Ice Dam Removal: Ice dams form on roofs in cold climates when melting snow refreezes, causing water backup. Ice dam removal involves safely melting or removing the ice to prevent water from seeping under the roof covering. Proper insulation and ventilation can help prevent future ice dams.

  • Flat Roof Repairs: Flat roof repairs address issues specific to roofs with a low slope. This may include patching membrane tears, repairing or replacing damaged sections, and addressing drainage problems to prevent water pooling.
