3 Easy DIY Roof Repairs You Can Do With A Little Effort

As with other aspects of home maintenance, roof maintenance can seem like a daunting, expensive proposition. But you don’t have to be a roofing expert to make small roof repairs. In fact, you don’t even need any special tools to manage repairs on your roof. The only thing you’ll need is a little bit of effort and the willingness to take on a few DIY projects. Here are some of the simplest repairs that you can do to keep your roof in good shape for years to come.

1. Fix Drip Tips

If your roof leaks due to defective drip tips, it’s one of the easiest repairs to make. All you need is a can of “snake-oil’’ and a pair of latex gloves.  Snake-Oil is a liquid that’s used to lubricate parts on machinery. It’s extremely safe for humans, but very unsafe for any wildlife that might come into contact with it. It’s also extremely flammable. It’s very effective at stopping roof leaks, but it’s equally effective at cleaning up roof leaks that have occurred elsewhere in your roof.

2. Patch Small Leaks

Even small roof leaks can waste a lot of water. If you notice a small leak on your roof, you can patch it with roof adhesive.  Roof adhesive comes in several varieties, including the popular, quick-set variety. All you need is a small bucket, a pair of latex gloves, and a tube of adhesive to get the job done.

3. Get Rid of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes don’t just bite people on warm summer days. They also suck up a lot of water. If you notice a lot of mosquitoes on your roof, you can get rid of them with a special enzyme product.


Your roof is probably one of the most important parts of your home. Apart from protecting you and your family from the elements, it also helps to reduce energy consumption. The only problem is that it can quickly become overgrown and neglected. In fact, it’s not uncommon for roofs to go unattended for years at a time. This is especially true in the case of older roofs. When you have to replace your roof, it’s important to make sure that it’s done right. This means making sure that it’s of the right thickness, and that it’s as durable as possible. 


One of the quickest ways to make sure that your roof is up to par is to top it off with a layer of asphalt shingles. If your roof is more than a few years old, it’s probably time to get a new one. And if it’s a few years away from being old enough, it’s time to take care of it. 


These are just a few of the easiest repairs you can make to your roof. And they’re definitely worth the effort.

Looking to move to Sacramento? Country Squires Estates is a 55 & over mobile home community located near Citrus Heights and I-80. If you’re looking for a home where nature meets urban lifestyle then this is the place to be.

Visit our website, and let’s get started.

The Country Squire Mobile Home Park is a manufactured home community that is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is becoming a gastronomical hot spot. Living in Country Squire Mobile Home Park is an amazing experience, especially for a hardcore foodie. This manufactured home community in Sacramento, California is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is gradually emerging as a gastronomical hot spot. 


With an overwhelming number of food hubs, you might find it daunting to choose your next food trip, so we have decided to round up the top four Citrus Heights restaurants you should try. These food destinations are not just known for their scrumptious meal and hearty servings, but also for their reasonable prices. 

1. Texas Roadhouse

This town’s favorite serves all-American cuisine that leans more toward the Southwestern flavor. With their fall-off-the-bone ribs and juicy steaks that come with freshly made side dishes, they have become the go-to restaurant for anyone who needs to satiate his carnivorous cravings. 


Despite their hearty portions, the meals are reasonably priced, especially during their weekly special when steak is only $13.99.


Being the town’s favorite has its downside: The restaurant is often packed at dinner time, which makes it not the ideal place if you’re looking for something intimate. Nonetheless, even on a busy night, the wait isn’t that long, thanks to its friendly, attentive staff. 


If you’re into hearty, sinful meals and lively ambiance, the Texas Roadhouse should be your next food destination with its Texas-themed decor, impromptu singing, line dancers, and jukebox. 


Address: 6309 Sunrise Boulevard, Citrus Heights  Contact number: +1 916-726-7623

2. El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant

This family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant has been serving their patrons for more than 32 years with their made-from-scratch meals (literally no cans in their kitchen). While their menu has a long list of hearty, mouth-watering meals, they are most known for their carne asada, which is beef marinated and grilled, often served in thin strips either as a main course or a filling in burritos and tacos. 


Other signature dishes you may want to try: fajita and molcajete. But if you really want to splurge a little bit, we suggest that you visit them for a Sunday Brunch (9 am – 2 pm) and enjoy their buffet of chile verde, cheese enchiladas, beans, rice, horchata and mimosa, Mexican bread, and other pastries, chile colorado, taco bar, to name a few. 


Surprisingly, this well-loved Mexican food haven also caters to people with special diets with vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free meals. 


But as with any popular food destination, the waiting line is a bit long especially during their Sunday Brunch, so we suggest that you arrive early. 


Address: 5637 Sunrise Blvd, Citrus Heights

3. Felipe's Mexican Restaurant

Another popular Mexican food destination, Felipe’s is a family-owned business that has been serving its Citrus Heights patrons since 1983. Due to their success, the owners decided to open a second location in Folsom in February 2007.


For decades, the food restaurant has been well-loved by customers who want to taste authentic Mexican cuisine that is a bargain for the cost. They also have take-out and cater to parties, weddings, and conferences. 


Felipe’s is most famous for their combinaciones de la casa, which roughly translates to combinations of the house. They include refried beans, Spanish rice, special salsa, hot tortilla, homemade chips, and chiminga, which are beef chunks wrapped in an oversized flour tortilla deep-fried until golden brown and drizzled with sour cream, melted cheese, and guacamole. 


Even though the restaurant is tucked away in a shopping mall strip, it is often packed with people, and so the waiting might be a bit long unless you arrive early. 


Address: 959 Auburn Blvd, Citrus Heights

Contact: +1 916-722-5400

4. Sammy's Restaurant and Bar

Sammy’s is inside a casino building (Stone Creek Gambling Hall), making it a convenient food haven for gamblers. Nevertheless, their lamb ribs, duck tacos, Baba Ghanoosh with pita wedges, and New York-style pizzas are well-received even by non-gamblers who just want to satisfy their cravings. 


Compared to the previously mentioned restaurants, Sammy’s a little bit more pricey but still “reasonable,” especially their “small plates” which start at $3.  


Address: 6510 Antelope Rd, Citrus Heights

Contact: (Not Available)

Aside from the aforementioned food destinations, the Country Squire Mobile Home Park is also near Roseville’s malls, boutique shops, and theatres. But surprisingly, the mobile and manufactured home community has a small town “feel” as it is tucked away in a forested enclave of Arcade and Cripple Creeks.
