Roof Leak Detection Cost
The exact cost for a roof leak detection inspection will vary depending on multiple factors, which our roofing technicians will determine upon examining the roof itself. For example, the size of the roof will play a factor in the overall cost for an inspection. The larger the roof, the more the job may cost. With that said, MEIS Roofing offers affordable services to homeowners in the area for quality service.
On average, many homeowners pay anywhere between $300 and $1,000 for roof repairs following a leak inspection. For the actual inspection, you should not expect to pay any more than that. Finding the leak is difficult to the untrained eye, but these experts perform roofing jobs and leak detection on a regular basis.

How Can I Find the Area the Roof Is Leaking From?
Your home was a major investment, so it makes a lot of sense that you would like to protect said investment from a serious leak or water damage. Most leaks stem from the roof above your head, but with an attic in-between, finding the exact point of the leak can be almost impossible if you’re unsure of exactly what to look for in the first place.
To start, examine your roof uphill from where the stains are forming from water damage. You should look for any roof penetrations – holes or cuts in the roofing material. An item penetrating the roof tends to be the most common reason for a roof leak. If you have attic access in your home, finding the leak just got a lot easier to accomplish. You will notice water stains, black areas, or mold growth in specific spots. These specific factors can help determine exactly where the leak may be coming from.
How do I know if I have a leak?
A leak in your home’s roof may not be immediately evident. In fact, whatever water is dripping in through a crack or crevice may simply begin to grow mold in the attic instead of making any water itself noticeable. The telltale signs of a roof leak, however, are missing shingles viewed from outside, a water stain, or the walls beginning to expand from the water running down the interior.
A water stain is the most common sign of a roof leak. The water may appear as a large puddle on your ceiling. This puddle is often ringed with brown, making it quite easily spotted. Missing shingles are one of the most common causes for a roof leak. You may notice the shingles themselves or bits of debris in the downspouts. Both signs point to trouble up above. Be sure to inspect your home once in a while and check the roof for any signs.
How soon can you come out to locate my leak?
Our experienced roofing technicians are available any time of the day or night for roofing repair emergencies. If you are worried about significant damage to your ceilings, walls, or attic due to a leak in the material of your roof, give us a call as soon as you notice the problem. We will work with your schedule to send a roofing technician to your residential property as quickly as possible to rectify the problem. Once there, our roofing specialists will determine exactly how bad the problem is before forming a clear plan of attack to rectify the issue. More often than not, a roof leak can be fixed rather easily. The timeframe all depends on exactly how big the actual leak may be and what damage it has caused.
