Roof leaks are a cause of damage within houses. The leak can cause serious destruction to your roof as well as cause mold to grow inside your attic. In this video, we will explain how to detect any leaks on your roof and how to close it fast.
The use of a garden hose and an eye for detail is a simple and effective method to identify the source of a leak. The person who is on the roof and spray it down area-by-area with the water hose. The other person will sit in the attic area and keep an watch for leaks.
A few guidelines are needed to make sure this test is efficient. Begin at the base of the roof and begin to work up the roof slowly. Apply the spray at all angles since the leak could be located in the area which only begins to leak once water comes into contact with it in a certain way.
