A leaking roof can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Moisture damages the interior structure of a home, so a leaking roof is no laughing matter. It’s important to take action, but one of the biggest questions we get about leaks is: Does my roof always have to be replaced if it is leaking? The answer is no, not always. The presence of a leak will not always justify a full roof replacement. Sometimes a repair job can sufficiently patch your roof and get it back where it needs to be.
