How to Fix and Prevent Roof Leaks

Stopping leaks before they even start is the best way to address roof leaks. Having a preventative method can save you from spending a ton of money to hire roof professionals to fix your roof. You must factor in a contractor coming to see the leak multiple times, including it being a huge  inconvenience.


Finding Services that Address Leaks Before they Begin

Eagle Rivet helps their customers using a unique, specialized schedule. We offer a free RCA (Roof Condition Analysis) to review commercial roof performance and the condition it is in currently. Our roof professionals will go out to perform a 15-point inspection, which covers all potential areas a roof can have a problem.


How Can Leaks Be Prevented?

Various methods can be used when there is a leak in a commercial roofing system.
With flat roofs, leaks often occur in  the low spots which may cause “blisters”. Repairing blisters consist of cutting it in the middle
and soaking up water. Next, cement in a thick coating will be applied to the bottom edges of the blister. The edges will then be sealed and nailed shut with galvanized nails.


For damaged shakes, we will thoroughly inspect any wooden shake roofs. New shakes will be replaced with damaged ones. We will check all other areas of the roof including: inspecting flashing joints around vent pipes or chimneys or any roof valleys.


We will take preventative measures to make sure leaks do not happen on your roof. If there is a leak, we will examine every area of your roof to ensure you don’t have a high repair cost. We inspect gutters and downspouts, because gutters that aren’t cleaned will cause leaks around your roof and cause the foundation to settle incorrectly. A roof waterproofing application can help to prevent further weathering from entering the roof.
