- A roof that leaks is a financial nightmare. If action isn’t taken immediately there will be lasting repercussions and damage to other parts of your home.

Repairs require experience, knowledge, and skill, and it takes a professional to address the unique challenges of each roof. When you suspect or discover a leak, let reliable repair technicians from EcoGen to identify the origin of the leak, ensure it’s repaired correctly, and assess your roof for any additional issues.
MOST COMMON LEAKS
CAN BE A SIMPLE REPAIR
There are many reasons why your roof might start leaking, and all of them require roof repair services.
It’s important to note that just because you spot a roof leak in a certain area doesn’t mean it came from that location. Water will flow along the path of least resistance. If your leak occurs at the ridge of the roof, it can run down several feet into the interior of your home unexposed, before it finally shows itself.
An essential part of making sure your roof lasts is ensuring that the ventilation system in the attic is providing sufficient airflow. Without proper ventilation, the chances of heat and moisture will build, increasing the chances of mildew, mold, and deterioration which will damage various roof components. If left unfixed for too long, you may need to replace your entire roof! If you notice any kind of roof leak or discoloration pick up your phone and call EcoGen Exteriors.
It’s important to understand that not all leaks are signs of a failing roof. We find that most leaks come from penetrations in the roof, such as caulking, flashing, and seals that often fail before the roofing materials.
It is important to have a professional investigate the leak. Our technicians at EcoGen Exteriors have the right tools and experience to uncover the source of your leak. If you have any roof problems or leaks, the culprit may be roof penetrations.
Common roof penetrations are skylight flashing, pipe or plumbing jacks, air vents, ridge vents, storm damage, exposed nails, improper positioning of roof nails, damaged step flashings along walls, improperly installed or clogged gutters, and valley flashing.
