Rocks Roofing specializes in roof leak repair services – repairing leaks, prevention, and emergency leak repairs.
The roof leak repair process starts with detecting roof leaks. Roof leaks can be difficult to find, and very deceptive. Often times, you will be witnessing the symptoms or a roof leak, such as water and stains, in an area away from the location where the actual roof damage is located. Sometimes, it roof leak detection can be easier if the underside of your roof deck and rafters are exposed.
Expertly trained and experienced roofers know how deceptive water leaks can be and the dangers they can present. For safety reasons we do not recommend that homeowners get on their roofs to try and locate the leaks. Rocks Roofing provides professional and reliable roof water leak detection and repair services for Colorado homeowners and businesses.
Everyone learned in school that water cannot run uphill due to the laws of gravity, so on a pitched roof the roof damage will not be beneath where you see evidence of a water leak such as wet areas or stains. Water can also leak through nail holes that are exposed or areas where shingles have been torn off. The water will run over layers of roofing materials eventually finding gaps, tears or other openings that allow the water to penetrate the roof structures. Next, it can spread over plywood reaching joints, and continuing on along the rafter and decking underside.

Roof Leak Repair Prevents Mold, Wood Rot or Flooding
It can be challenging to find the source of a roof leak, particularly when parts of the roof are hidden. Water can run several feet from where it initially enters the roof to where it is visible. In homes of businesses that have drywall or paneling on the ceiling, it can travel longer distances. Even small leaks that are not seen during a rainstorm can be problematic because the roof structure begins retaining moisture and damaging insulation and allowing mold, wood rot fungus, or flooding to develop.
Major leaks can cause discoloration, and can build up and saturate the drywall. A quick stop gap is to puncture the saturated drywall allowing the water to drain into a bucket or pail until the roof can be repaired. If a roof inspection fails to reveal where the leak is, the drywall may have to be removed to find the leaks exact location. After the roof leak source has been detected, roofing technicians can determine where the leak location is on the roof.
