Starting up a roofing project in Dunn and the area around Raleigh, NC can be a tough task, any homeowner who has been through it will probably tell you that. Roofs are an expensive, time-consuming, and problematic part of the home that you really only get to use when you look up at your house as you’re pulling into the driveway.
Since I’ve been working in the roofing industry, I’ve gained a new appreciation for roofs and how they accent a house. But before I looked at them for a living, I can’t say I ever paid them much thought, so I certainly don’t blame homeowners for not thinking too much about it.
That being said, it’s incredibly important to the health of our homes, and having a well-built roof will go a long way in preserving the home’s value over the long term. So when you need a new roof, or a repair to address a roofing issue, who should you turn to?

HOW LONG CAN YOU LEAVE A ROOF LEAK?
If you’re just getting started on your roofing project, you’re probably having a bit of shock about how much it all is likely going to cost you. So often people ask us how long they can leave a roofing issue that they’re dealing with, in order to put off having to pay for it right away.
So how long can you leave a roof leak in this way?
The answer to this question will really depend on what kind of leak you’re dealing with, and if you’ve got any rain in the forecast.
If your leak is already big enough that it’s caused heavy damage to your decking, or is leaking into your house, you should address it immediately. It may take some time to sort out payment with your insurance, or when to schedule the repair, so the sooner you can get the leak identified and inspected, the better your chances are of preventing further damage, and saving some money on the repair.
Regardless of the size of the leak, you really need to at least have your leak inspected and covered up by the next rainfall, but if it is a smaller section, that might be enough to keep your home dry in the short term. That being said, we do not recommend doing that, as there’s a really strong chance that if you don’t get it repaired at the first possible opportunity, any warranties or insurance money that your roof could have qualified for will be voided, and you’ll be left paying for it on your own.
