Roof leaks cause damage to your home or business if the underlying cause isn't diagnosed or repaired quickly. Water can drain or drip outward from the spot where the leak occurred, we can pinpoint the exact cause and fix your leak. In our 65 years we have seen and fixed every kind of leak. Some common leaks we fix.
Excess Moisture leaks that we fix
Draining upper roof gutters directly onto a lower roof can lead to the lower section becoming overly saturated, which can cause leaks. Better planning of your entire guttering system and elevate the problem.
Debris leaks that we fix
Buildup of twigs, leaves or pine needles can trap water against the roof allowing water to soak in by capillary action. Itʼs vitally important to keep the roof clear so water can run off quickly. Cutting overhanging tree branches will make it easier to keep your roof clear of problems and potential leaks.
Flashing leaks that we fix and prevent
Metal roof flashing seals roof transitions where large amounts of water pour down or where unwanted absorption can occur. Flashing is placed around likely areas for leaks: where the roof joins a dormer, where a chimney penetrates the roof and around the edges of skylights. Flashing sections can slide or move out of proper alinement if nails are missing and caulk has become dry, cracking over time.
Age leaks that we service
Even the best roofing materials deteriorate over time and become and can cause problems with your residential or commercial roof. Temperature changes and
extreme weather conditions may cause roofing materials to become hard and crack with age and exposure to direct sunlight may melt the tar that seals shingles together.
Ridge Cap leaks that we prevent and fix
The ridge cap covers the gap at the peak of a roof where the two slopes meet. Contractors who use rope and harness systems without protecting the ridge cap with temporary covering can cause holes in the roof material, allowing water from rain to enter.

Residential roofing is typically made up of a multitude of materials and surfaces. The primary purpose of your roof is to maintain a barrier between the outisde and interior from the weather. The most pervasive and difficult weather element to control is water. Roof flashing is usually the last line of defense in the battle against water penetration.
The most common locations for roofing flashing are at the valleys, chimneys, roof penetrations, eaves, rakes, skylights, ridges, and at the roof to wall intersections. Flashing must be configured to resist the three mechanisms of water penetration: gravity, surface tension, and wind pressure. To achieve this, flashing can be lapped shingle style, sodered or sealed to function as a continuous suface or can beconfigured with non- continuous profile to defeat water surface tension.
Flashing materials must be durable, low in maintenance requirements, weather resistant, able to accomodate movement, and be compatible with adjacent materials. With properly installed flashing in the correct areas, flashing for your roof can help extend the lifetime of your roof as well. Midwest Roofing Services can help determine which type of flashing is need as well as correctly install flashing to help maintain the lifetime of your roof.
