In October 2008 we had the old shingles removed from our house and had a metal roof installed. Not cheap, $8,800.00
After both snows this year our ceiling has been getting brown water spots. The spots are mostly in the bathroom and laundry area. Which makes me wonder if it is leaking around the vent pipes. We also have areas where leakes apear to be from the cap.
We also have leakes from the eaves. I called the roofer today to come out and look at the damage ansd to see about repairs.
The roof has a 5 year warranty so I have not called our insurance company.
Can anyone tell me the correct way these repairs should be done to prevent further problems/leaks. If these leaks are not corrected correctly it can lead to further damages. Plus I have a health issue to be concerned with. Water leaks can lead to mold problems and I am extremely allergic to mold. Will it be necessary to allow the wet roof to dry out before any repairs can be made so the moisure/wet areas aren't 'trapped' in?
So I can prevent mold problems from occuring?
I would appreciate any advice from roofers. Thank you. cm
