Aug 29, 2007
A leak in the roof of the house could be any homeowner's worst nightmare. It is true; no one would like to have a leak in the roof. It is very hard to locate the origin of the leakage as it shows up far away from the place where it originates. It is a pain at times, to find the leak. A leak in the roof could destroy precious pieces of furniture and ruin the whole look of the house. They could also cause damage to the structural integrity of the house. It could damage the sheathing and the framing of the house. The life of any type of roofing is not more than 20 years. It is very essential to fix the roofing problem before it gets out of hand. Do not ignore a leak as it will definitely grow and cause more problems.

Various solutions have come up to deal with roofing problems. If the roof of your house does have a problem do not panic. It is necessary to carry out the procedure calmly. The Internet is a great place to find out solution to roofing problems. You can also find tips, on how to prevent leaks. The Internet is also a good place to look for roofers. You could also enquire about roofers with your neighbors, families or friends.

Select an appropriate roofer and check if he/she is factory-certified. These roofers are trained at a factory and are known well for their work. It is important to carry out a small research before hiring a roofer. It is better to hire a local reputed roofer well known for his quality work. You also need to make sure the worker is well insured with workers' compensation fund. This way you will not be liable for any accident the worker may have in your house.

While roofing, you have to make sure that the workers abide by certain building codes laid on a national, state or local level. If these codes are not followed, the local building inspector may ask you to tear down the whole thing and then rebuild it. This will increase your expenses to repair. Another important factor to remember is the ventilation. There has to be enough ventilation in the attic to ensure a long life of the roof. Improper ventilation of the attic can damage the roof and the structure of the house.

Every roofing material has a manufacturer's warranty for any defects in the material. The conditions of the warranty will differ for products of different manufacturers. Warranty provided by the contractors is different from that provided by the manufacturers. The contractors will mostly provide guarantee on repairs made by their employees. It is good to have guaranty/warranty from both the manufacturers and the contractor. It is good to carry out financial background check on the manufacturers and the contractor, as they are susceptible to dissolve licensee within 5 years.
