Why choosing who you hire matters!
There are so many different ways to repair a roof to stop it from leaking. Let me mention that just simply applying some black tar or caulk around a certain area is only a temporary fix. In many cases in just a few months, or a year or two the roof could be leaking again. However, there are ways to make repairs like a "roofing professional" or like "a fly by night contractor " to a roofing leak. (The integrity of the company I run is far more important to me than just making an extra buck.)
The best way is to hire a roofing professional that really has a good idea on how to do things in the proper
fashion. A professional roofing consultant should be able to make a good explanation on the best way and only way to repair your home before he gives you and estimate
Another way to make repairs is to simply repair the roof by the simple answer, "just add tar or roofing cement". Seems like a great idea and if you are on a tight budget it might work for a short-term but the reliability is very unpredictable. Any contractor that offers you this type of service I would be cautious in whether or not they are doing the right thing for the investment of my home?

Roofing Cement Vs. Caulk
- The color is usually black (hardly ever matches the roof and devalues the curb appeal in some cases)
- Extremely messy and hard to clean up
- Often cracks due to heat in a short period of time causing it to leak again.
- Often permanent and cause more damage if a repair is needed in that area.
Caulk (NP1 a polyurethane product in paticular)
Color can match the color of the roof to keep curb appeal
Simply easier to clean up and be neat
Can handle heat a lot better than roofing cements
Also is very pliable for future repairs
Although, roofing cement is great for a cheap solution if you are on a budget. However, for a few dollars more you can use NP1 type product like found at Home Depot. Caulk or cement is also a great solution for someone that has no idea of what they are doing. Caulk is supposed to be used after re-flashing or repairing an area properly. Things like exposed nails, underneath broken sealed shingles, and other areas for additional protection. Caulk is not meant to be the main line of defense.
