    Roof Repair

    All this rain over the past two days my house has developed a leak in the bedroom ceiling. I am looking for a roof repair company to come out and take a look. We live in Urbandale and didn't know if anybody knew of a good company. Thanks in advance.

    i am in des moines and using wolf construction, but i also was impressed with Hedrick in huxley.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    there was a thread earlier that said 'AAA' was pretty good (or something along those lines).

    I had 'renovate it' solutions replace mine earlier this year, but i wouldn't recommend them

    Re: Roof Repair

    Have you looked for the source of the leak?

    If your attic is accessable, shine a flashlight up there and find the source. My guess is that the higher that normal volume of rain ran down your roof and caused water to flow into places that it usually doesn't reach.... Like maybe under an eave. If the leak is in a not-too-visible spot on the roof, you could get a bucket of black tar and neatly patch the spot - saving you a large chunk of money.

    Thanks for the idea. I just might have to try that.
