What To Do When Your Chattanooga Home's Roof Leaks

A leak in your Chattanooga home's roof, no matter how small it seems to be, should be something you take seriously and address quickly. A small roof leak, if left unresolved, can evolve into a major issue for your Chattanooga home. Mold, ruined insulation, damaged ceilings and rotted framing are just a few expensive issues that can arise from a leak that is left unaddressed. Does this mean that you should take out your DIY tool belt and climb up on the roof to fix the leak? Not exactly. And here's why:

1. ABC may not be as easy as 123...

A weekend warrior home improvement fan may often fix the leak, only to discover there is another leak they did not notice.
