Common Signs & Causes of Roof Leaks
Unless you have a roofer you trust who performs regular roof maintenance and inspections, you may not even know you have a roof leak until there’s a brown spot on your ceiling or worse, water coming into your home. By paying attention to your roof and giving it a visual inspection about once a quarter or after any storm can give you a clue that you should call a roof repair company. Here are some things to look out for:
- Shingles with cracks, tears, blisters or other types of damage
- Gutters that are clogged or no longer attached to the home properly
- Flashing that doesn’t appear sealed or affixed to the home
- Soffits and fascia that has visible issues
- Misaligned or missing shingles
Roof damage occurs for many reasons. One is simply aging. As our roofs get older, they have more frequent issues. Of course, storm damage is a major reason for roof damage and is often covered by insurance. In winter, ice dams often lead to roof leaks because ice can lift the shingles and do damage. And if a wind or hail storm comes through the area, you should call your roof repair company to inspect for damage. They’ll let you know if you need to contact your insurance company.
