Sometimes roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs to be replaced. Usually these leaks are caused by localized damage such as cracked or missing shingles or shakes. Finding a leak is one of the few things that strikes fear into homeowners heart. Catching the leak early can mean the difference between a simple roof repair and calling professionals like Statewide Roofing Consultants Inc. for assistance. The hardest part is locating the leak. If you have a water bulge in your ceiling, or drywall is sagging, poke a hole in it with a pencil to alleviate the water pressure and avoid further damage like a collapsed wall or ceiling.
Take a moment when you find a leak to do a check list.
- Are your gutters blocked or backed up. This can mimic a roof leak.
- Check for water spots in your ceiling and look in your attic to see if there is any dripping water.
- Look for water stains on the underside of the roof board and check your insulation to see if it’s wet.
A leaking roof needs immediate attention, tracking the leak and having it repaired as quickly as possible is always the best course of action.
