Your home is your castle, and it needs to be able to keep you and your loved ones safe and sheltered from the elements. At Raven Roofing and Contracting Inc., we believe in making sure that Salt Lake City, UT residents are able to rest easy knowing that their home is protected from rain. If you have a problem with a leaking or damaged roof, we're here to help.
The simple fact is that a leaking roof in Salt Lake City, UT can be caused by a huge number of different issues, and pinpointing those causes are the first step that our team will take. Consider some of the following potential causes:
- Cracked or sun damaged shingles
- Damage from trees or limbs
- Hail or other storm damage
- Clogged gutters back flowing onto the roof or roof walls
But did you realize that about 90% of all roof leaks in Salt Lake City, UT are caused by two issues – defective metal flashing or improper installation of the shingles? It's true – in most situations the roofing product is still actually in good shape.
Flashing is a kind of metal product that is used to protect areas where roof angles join together – valleys, vent pipes, chimneys, walls, and more. It's vital that a home's roof be flashed properly or issues will occur quickly.
In fact, any leaking related issue of any kind is something that needs to be addressed. Failure to correct a leak can lead to a wide range of problems including:
- Collapsed framing
- Electrical issues
- And more
All in all, the important thing to understand is that your home's roof is much more complex than just a single sheet of roofing product placed over it.

When you contact our team, we understand those variables and work to identify the proper course of action. Here's a basic rundown of what to expect when you contact us.
