At one point or another, every homeowner realizes the importance of the roof and attic as functioning elements of the home. Whatever the size of a home, the roof and attic comprises a “system” that works together to protect the building structure, while providing a comfortable living space. As for proper care of the roof and attic, short-term maintenance will deliver long-term benefits. This is especially true when it comes time to make attic and roof leak repairs.
There's no question that homeowners can handle many basic home repairs personally. While this is undoubtedly money-saving, a DIY approach is not always the best. This is especially true with more specialized repairs (like roof leak repair and attic leak repair).
Attic and roof repairs are quite specialized, and it’s essential to understand the cause and scope of a problem. That’s where an expert would be a valuable asset – to evaluate the problem areas, recommend a remedy, and fix it right from the start. Whatever the problem – from roof leaks to flashing issues to moisture build-up – an expert inspection will soon determine the extent of repair required. Most importantly, early diagnosis is the best way to prevent more significant problems from arising.
With EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, homeowners are assured that water leakage problems are correctly identified and a suitable remedy is offered. More than that, EcoComfort will do it all, from shingle replacement to roof restoration. The experts at EcoComfort see the roof and attic as a "system," meaning that many elements work together to provide benefits. As such, upgrades and improvements might include better vapour barriers, better ventilation, and better air sealing.
When maintenance is neglected, including roof and attic leak repairs, the potential for damage can result in serious restoration work that calls for emergency roof repair. That’s why it’s important to have the roof inspected from season to season, and professionally assessed for necessary repairs. Here, a preventive approach will really pay off – doing routine attic and roof leak repairs will allow for proper upkeep and the prevention of bigger problems, not to mention emergency roof repair situations with plenty of damage.
For the most part, homeowners don’t ever go into their attic. The fact is, few homeowners know what to do up there or what to look for in the event of problems. With something serious like water leakage, there’s much to consider – there may be a roof leak; there may be ice damming; there may even be a high level of attic condensation. And here, finding the origin and extent of the leakage is likely beyond the capacity of the average homeowner.
While not all roof leaks are a sign of trouble, there may be a need for roof leak repair or attic leak repair. The key is to pinpoint the problem, and this may well require a professional roofing specialist. The worst option is to undertake a DIY remedy when an expert is needed.
Flashing is Cracked: Flashing is installed under roof shingles to provide a water-resistant barrier. Leaking is prevalent when flashing is cracked or broken.
Broken Roof Shingles: Missing shingles or broken shingles are easy to identify. This problem can cause a slow leak in the roof as water collects in the attic.
Valleys Aren’t Sealed: With a sloped roof, a damaged valley can allow rainwater to leak into the attic as water freely runs down the roof's slope.
Damaged Roof Vents: When roof vents are damaged or compromised, outside water can leak into the attic and roof cavity through the damaged edges.
Build-up of Ice Dams: When ice forms on the edge of the roof, it prevents melting snow from draining, and the build-up of water can cause various damages.
Cracks in Chimney: Chimney cracks typically develop in the chimney’s mortared areas, particularly where the chimneystack connects to the roof.
Skylight Problems: Poorly installed skylights will leak rainwater around the edges of the unit. But it could also be a problem with the flashing around.

In any attic, discovering the origin of a water leak is going to be difficult – even if there are water stains (as evidence), the source could be anywhere. With a professional inspection, an expert can pinpoint water leakage whether it’s in the roof sheathing, the chimneystack, the attic vents, or the HVAC ducting. Professionals understand how water behaves - they have the expertise to uncover the source of the leakage and explain why it’s actually happening.
With EcoComfort, homeowners can rest assured that the source of leakage will be identified, and a solution will be at hand. EcoComfort does it all – shingle replacement and complete roof restoration. And because the roof and attic operate as a “system”, there may be other elements to consider, like improving vapour barriers, retrofitting attic ventilation, and providing better air sealing.
