Residential roof repair can include anything from a small fix to a complete roof replacement but repairing a roof leak is just as important as repairing the more serious types of roof damage. A small leak can be more problematic in the long run and can cause unseen damage to the substructure of the house, potentially developing into a larger issue, like mold or rot. In some cases, when a homeowner sees signs of a leaky roof, there is already damage occurring that may have gone unnoticed for years. This damage might simply be associated with the insulation, or it could be manifested in weakened roof supports.
