It happens to everyone who owns a home. One day you’re sitting in your house enjoying television or a nice dinner Anarece drip coming from the ceiling. It’s been raining outside and you have a roof leak. You are kind of a do-it-yourselfer and you think that you can repair this yourself without having to spend thousands of dollars on the contractor. Here is how you can go about fixing your roof leak.
Now remove the existing shingles around the area where you perceive the damage to be. Sometimes it is necessary to scrape off the shingles with a flat headed shovel. It does not need to be a very long one. Then what you need to do is check the plywood to see if that is damaged. If it is damaged when you need to replace the plywood with new wood. Just cut a piece large enough to replace the area that had been damaged. If you need to replace the tarpaper over the plywood, do that first and then replace the shingles with matching shingles. Tack down the new shingles with either nails or staples and you should have fixed the roof leak.
