Leaky Roof Repair in Naperville,IL
Imagine that one evening you are sitting in your home watching television. Suddenly wind and rain begin to pelt the windows in your living room. As you are relaxing watching television, you begin to hear a dripping sound coming from the second floor bathroom. You initially think nothing of the dripping sound, assuming that it is most likely a leaky faucet. As the storm progresses however the dripping gets louder and the intensity increases. You begin to realize that you may have a roof leak.
After the storm progresses, you get up to go investigate the source of the roof leak. Your careful investigation reveals that the neoprene pipe collar used to seal the bathroom vent pipe has deteriorated. It is now allowing water to enter into the attic space and subsequently find its way into the bathroom on your second floor. Now that you have discovered the problem, how do you fix it?
Accessing the Roof Safely
In order to apply an effective repair to correct the roof leak at the pipe you must first gain access to the roof in a safe manner. It should be your top priority to remain safe while completing the repair. If you cannot perform the repair in a safe manner, contact a professional roofing contractor who can safely make the repair for you.
Tools and Materials Required
Repairing a neoprene pipe seal requires specialized tools, equipment and materials in order to complete the project successfully. These tools and equipment allow you to be effective and complete the proper installation of the repair materials.
An important point you need to consider when preparing to complete the replacement of a pipe seal is how to measure the diameter of the pipe through the roof. When measuring a pipe, you measure the inside diameter. Piping is measured from the inside because the thickness of the pipe’s wall varies depending upon the type of material it is. Measure the inside diameter and purchase the neoprene pipe collar to match that measurement.
