Sometimes the source of your leak is not the part of the roof with shingles. Dormer walls can also provide weaknesses for water to get in.

What to Look For

Here are a few things to look for when deciding if the dormers are the problem:

  • Missing or cracked caulk
  • Spaces beneath caulk

How to Fix It

Here are some quick tips on how to fix the problem:

  • Use high-quality caulk.
  • Replace siding that may be missing, cracked or rotting.
  • Use a putty knife to dig around and see what areas are sealed.

With a little sweat and determination, your leak woes are now behind you.
