Hi there, my name is Sarah Conwell. When I moved into my home, I was not aware of the various leak points throughout the roof. In fact, I was told that the roofing materials were relatively new and not in need of attention.

I had a roofer come take a look at the structure upon noticing water damage in the attic. After pulling up the shingles and replacing the vapor barrier, my roof stopped leaking for good. I want to discuss the risk of ignoring roof leaks for any amount of time. I will also share information about roof repairs on this site. Thanks.
