Any Roof, Anytime! – Roofing Leak Detection & Repair
Sometimes roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs replacing. Usually these leaks are caused by localized damage, such as cracked or missing shingles or shakes, a leaking skylight or on a flat roof, a blistered or cracked area. The hardest part to repairing this kind of damage is locating the spot. 604-FIX-LEAK’s well trained and experienced staff can easily identify the damaged area and provide the best solution to fix your roof.

We provide roof leak detection and emergency repair services to clients throughout Vancouver, BC., including Burnaby, Surrey, New West, Richomd, Delta, and the North Shore.
Shingle roofs are usually easy to fix. At the marked leak point, look for damage, curled, or missing shingles. At every place where two surfaces meet and around every chimney or vent, look for breaks in the flashing or caulking or for gaps in the lines of roof cement. However, it is common that you cracked more shingles when you tried to fix the roof by yourself. That’s why you need a professional. 604-FIX-LEAK can help you.
Flat roofs are built up of layers of roofing felt and tar. Leaks usually occur at low spots or where the roofing felt has been damaged. In most cases, the leak is directly below the damaged spot and the damage to the roofing felt is easy to see. And you can mop up or soak all remain water pooled in the leak area.
Skylight Leak Repair:
Skylights can create an opportunity for leaks on your roof. Signs of a skylight leak include water stains around the skylight. If you suspect a leak or see signs that give you concern, contact 604FixLeak immediately to inspect the skylight and flashing on the roof. Water stains near the bottom may indicate condensation, especially if you have high humidity in your home or building. Stains near the top of the skylight indicate possible failure of the flashing on your roof. A leaky skylight might indicate more serious leak problems with your roof so don’t ignore it.
