I Spy With My Little Eye … a Roof Leak

Aug 31, 2018

Homeowner maintenance is tiring business! You’ve probably had more than your fair share of leaks as a property owner. Half of maintenance is simply preventing leaks, which involves everything from shingle roof repairs to expensive main line PVC pipe repairWe’d love to help you with your ongoing battle against leaks, so here is a brief guide on detecting and addressing a potential roof leak!

 

How Can I Tell Where My Roof is Leaking?

If you’re already dealing with a leak in the house, your first step is to take a look at the usual suspects, which include…

  • Roof Flashing
  • Damaged Fascia and Gutters
  • Misplaced or Torn Shingles

Damaged shingles are one of the top sources of leaks for homeowners. All it takes is a prolonged gust of heavy wind, a workman walking around improperly on the roof, or a 30 min hail storm to open gaps in your home’s waterproofing.

Roof flashing is another common origin point. While your flashing is designed to divert water away from vulnerable sections of your roof, damaged flashing will do just the opposite. Some of the most expensive water leaks are caused by this water dumping.

How Do You Fix a Leaking Roof?

Find the source! You can fix interior damage until your budget is shot, or you can carefully inspect the roofing to determine where the leak originated from. Whether that involves getting new shingles or roof flashing repair, it’s worth every penny. The cost of finding and fixing a leak is much less expensive than the mold removal and dehumidifying service you’ll need if you let the roof leak stay!
