Hello, I just bought a new home. We’ve had several leaks since moving in. I tried patching the most obvious holes but water is still getting in and destroying my home. This has turned into a nightmare. A friend recommended hiring www.majorhomes.net . Has anyone used them? I am located just outside of the city on Long Island. If you have any other suggestions or maybe an idea why I have leaks without any apparent issues in my roof then please let me know. Should I just replace the whole roof? It is an older home…

Bea… I’m responding just because you deserve a response. I can’t speak for the company but I had a roof that wasn’t that old. My mother in law had it done about 7 years prior to our inheriting it. It had lots of gables and I don’t think it was done right. We had ceiling stains all over the place. I finally gave up trying to find the bad areas and I don’t think it would have helped anyway because a bad roof job is usually not fixable. I had it redone with a 10 year warranty on the new one. No leaks. I don’t know about your issue but sometimes you just have to do that.

Good luck with it.

The last time I did the whole house, I used Tile Lab, which I found at Home Depot. It is more reasonable than the Finazzle was but more than the Windex. It was much easier to use, I sprayed it on and used my mop – did a great job on the tile itself and I only had to use the scrub brush in the most traffic areas and the areas in the bathrooms where the overspray falls on the floors.

Hi there
Its your choice and budget availability, whether you go after repairing or replacing the whole roof. But it is much much important to select a good company. So search some well known companies and check out their credentials after that it will be easy for you to select an appropriate company for your work.
