Record weekend rainfall brings leaks needing repair

Posted: Updated:

The steady downpour all weekend lead to some surprise trouble for homeowners. Calls to roofers skyrocketed when residents found leaks.

Roofing companies told us they're seeing this scenario playing out all over the county.

Heavy rain is to blame for damage at First Presbyterian Church of Sun City. Precision Roofing was there to patch things up, but say they've been overloaded with continuous calls for repair.

"We had calls start coming in Friday night and we worked some Saturday, all Sunday and today, and probably will be working some tomorrow too," says Joe Infield, co-owner of Precision Roofing.

"It's mostly leak calls from 'we're over-burdened from rains and overflowing' and stuff like that, just roof leaks people don't know they have until the rain comes."

FOX 10's Kelly Hessedal has more.
