My mobile home roof in North Fort Myers is leaking. What needs to be done?
Well, first you need someone to go up on the roof to examine any damage that may have occurred. Look for holes in roof, missing flashing, or lifted up screws.
If their are no holes in the roof then most likely its flashing and screws that need to be replaced. The screws have a rubber garment on them to seal once screwed in. Usually what happens is the screws may back out and the hole is not sealed any longer. Another thing is that the rubber garment dries out and has cracks which lets the water enter under the screw.
Roof problems need to be addressed as soon as possible because water damage inside can be costly and produce mold in your home.
Most roofs as long as they are not damaged can be repair to last years down the road.
Also you must always use the right products on your roof. Be sure to see what type of covering material is on your roof because if you trowel or paint over a material that’s not compatible, it will pull away and not seal or solve your problem.
