1. You have Broken Shingles

How to Identify It

This is easy to identify just look at your roof. Shingles are the exterior layer of a roof, you can spot shingles which are missing by identifying the different colour patches on your roof.

Another good place to identify this problem is looking on the ground around your roof after bad weather. If you have broken shingles you will see them scattered all around.

What Causes This

Heavy rain and strong winds.

What You Can Do to Fix It

Place a pry bar below the nails which are connecting the damaged shingle to the shingle below. Lift the bar until the nail pops and remove the nail. Repeat this until there are no more nails. Remove the shingle from your roof and replace it with a new one. After this secure the new shingle with approximately four nails.

2. Your Valleys aren't Sealed Properly

How to Identify It

Valleys are an area where two planes of roof meet. As these areas of the roof are usually sloped, if the valleys are not sealed correctly, water from rain can get inside and run down your roof.

You can see if there is a problem by looking for wet areas on the seams of your roof.

What Causes This

This problem can be caused for several reasons. One is the valley was never sealed correctly in the first place. It could have been cracked if somebody walked over it.

Or it could just be down to bad weather such a rain, snow and ice. All types of weather we experience over the winter months in Brentwood.

What You Can Do to Fix It

This very technical repair work. We recommend you contact a professional roofer to do this. If you are in the Brentwood area we are more than happy to assist you.

If you do want to attempt it on your own you will need to lay a new leak barrier along the valley and the shingling overtop.

3. Your Skylights Weren't Installed Correctly

How to Identify It

This is another easy roofing problem to identify. If you see wet spots or you need to place buckets underneath your skylights you have identified a problem with your skylight installation.

A problem which is now causing a leak in your roof. Sometimes this issue can be down to your flashing and not your skylight installation.

What Causes This

The two most common reasons for this leak are as follows:

1) The insulation along the perimeter of the skylight is delayed.

2) The measuring or the skylights were wrong at the time of installation.

3) The installation was not done correctly.

What You Can Do to Fix It

Remove any debris from the skylight. Clean the skylight if necessary. Check for any cracks in the window. If there are any cracks seal them with silicon.

If this is not the cause check the surround flashing. And replace the flashing as required.
