Never wait longer than you need to on leaky roof repairs!

Waiting on repairs to your roof could potentially end up costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars. Simple roof leak repairs can turn into bigger issues such as water intrusion or animals finding their way into your second story or attic. Most of the animals that run across your roof do not cause problems. But, hearing them can be irritating and if they find a way into your attic they can cause a lot of damage. In particular when they create a hole to allow them access to your roof space. Squirrels, raccoons, bats, birds and even some insects can all do this. As soon as you are aware of animals on your roof, it is wise to take steps to deter them.
