Some roof problems will require a bit more creative thinking and elbow grease to fix than others. These tips can help.
One of the main causes of hard-to-fix leaks is failure to properly waterproof the area where the roof joins with the soffit.
Here’s how to repair poor flashing.
- Remove the shingles all the way down the sheathing.
- Put an adhesive barrier against ice and water under the joint where the roof meets the soffit.
- Carefully put the shingles back on.
Determination and an eye for detail can go a long way toward helping you find and stop roof leaks.
