Basic Causes of a Leaking Roof

Sometimes it’s a single shingle, or a cluster of them. Perhaps what you thought was a minor storm actually resulted in storm damage. Either way, a leaking roof is not something to take lightly. It could lead to structural damage down the road. Other common problems include:

 

Age of the Home

Roofing materials deteriorate with age and become less effective at keeping water out. Older roofs are often worn down from normal wear and tear. If your home is 10-years or older and you haven’t had a roof inspection, now would be the time: Contact Us for that free roof inspection.

 

Roof Vents

Plastic vents crack, gaps occur from missing nails, or storm damage. Anything that provides a way for water to get in needs to be properly sealed.

 

Debris

If you have a buildup of debris on your roof water gets trapped. Water needs to runoff your roof quickly to avoid water buildup that results in leakage.

 

Flashing

Flashing is placed where the roof joins a dormer, on the edge of skylights, and where the chimney meets the roof. They may slide out of place or crack over time. It may also be damaged from high winds or hail.

 

Excess Moisture

Upper roof gutters draining onto a lower roof can lead to the lower section can create pools of water which leads to lower leaking.

 

Gutter Backup

Clogged gutters slow water flowing off the roof giving the water time to soak through. Clearing your gutters can greatly decrease the chances of leaking down the road.

 

Determining the Source of the Leak

Roof leaks are difficult to trace, which makes roof leak repair difficult for most homeowners. It’s a process of elimination to determine where the source of the leak is coming from. Just because the roof is leaking in your living room, that doesn’t mean the source of the leak is coming from directly above.

We can assist you by inspecting the exterior of your roof and noting any damage we find. By accessing other areas of your house, such as your attic, we can confirm if that is the source of the leaking.
