New Orleans Roof Leak Detection
A leaky roof is never a good sign. If you suspect your roof is leaking, you need help from an experienced roofing contractor. As one of the most skilled companies in New Orleans, Shifflett Roofing is your one-stop resource for your roofing needs. From repairs and reroofs to New Orleans roof leak detection, we do it all—and our work is backed by a comprehensive 30-year warranty.
While a leaky roof might not seem like such a big deal right now, it can quickly become one. In fact, one tiny leak can cause permanent damage to the structure of your home. Over time, the water damage could even create mold and/or mildew—which can often lead to health problems such as allergies or asthma.
Unfortunately, by the time most people realize their roof is leaking, the leak has been there for several months or longer. Therefore, it is extremely important to find and repair the link immediately in order to minimize water damage—and that’s where we come in.
When you contact Shifflett Roofing, we’ll start working on your leaky roof right away. First and foremost, we’ll make sure the roof is the source of the leak (rather than your air conditioning or plumbing system, for example). Once we confirm the leak is coming from your roof, we will find out what is causing it. In many cases, a leaky roof may be caused by loose or rotting shingles—a scenario that is especially likely if your existing roof is more than 15 years old. Some other common causes of leaks include popped or backed out nails, damage to the sealant or flashing, and cracks around the plumbing vents.
Once we determine how the water is getting into your home, we will customize an ideal solution for you. Depending on the severity of the leak, a simple repair may be all it takes to get your roof back in tip-top shape. While a new roof may be required if there is extensive damage, we will work with you to create a long-term solution that not only fulfills your needs, but also meets your budget. In some cases, your homeowner’s insurance may even cover your expenses—so you may want to check with your provider to find out if you are eligible for reimbursement.
