Here at B&K, we receive various questions all the time about roof leaks and what causes them. Example of this is; Does Lack of Sealant in Valleys Cause Roof Leaks? This is a very common question one here in the Dallas Ft Worth Texas area.
The short answer to this question is Maybe.
However before going forward let first define what is a valley. The Roof Valley is any section of a residential or commercial roof where two different slopes meet at the bottom.
There is a tendency for water to collect here; hence to prevent any unwanted water leak from this tendency you must utilize sealant. If this area is not fully protected with roof sealant or if it become loose, you may then receive a water leak from a heavy down pour of rain.
To prevent this from happening, make sure to simply coat each roof valley with roofing sealant. Here is a tip, make sure to overlap and to go slightly above the roof valleys to ensure you get good sealant coverage.
