If you have a roof leak, act now!
Regardless of the location or severity, roof leaks are one roofing issue that should not be left unattended. Roof won’t just stop leaking; instead, they get progressively worse and can cause a range of issues — from wood rot to termites and roof sag to total collapse. Pinpointing the exact origin of a roof leak can be a bit complex simply because leaks don’t typically present themselves at the point of origin. Instead, gravity pulls water down the path of least resistance. As such, indicators of leaks generally appear downhill of their origin. Things like peeling paint, mold and mildew growth, and water stains on ceilings and walls can all hint at the need for roof leak repair.

How can I tell if my roof is leaking?
Besides seeing water actively dripping into your home, there are other indicators that your roof may be in disrepair. The sound of dripping water, even if you don’t see it, could mean that water is entering somewhere it ought not. Water stains on ceilings and walls are perhaps one of the most obvious indicators as are peeling and bubbling paint. Damp sections around indoor air vents, light fixtures, and fireplaces may also mean that there is an issue with your roof. Similarly, musty smells, particularly around your attic or in the upper levels of your home can all point to roof leaks.
On the exterior of your home, curling and buckling shingles are often caused by moisture problems. If parts of your roof have changed color, especially around roof vents, moisture may be to blame. Rotting beneath the eaves (the portion of your roof that extends past the exterior wall of a structure) often occurs as the result of a leaking roof.
Schedule a Yearly Inspection to Keep Your Roof in Top Shape
It is said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this definitely holds true for your home. Roofs are essential for the comfort and safety of your home and the people in it, so it’s important that they stay in good repair all year long. Scheduling a roof inspection at least once a year is a great way to catch any roof issues before they spiral into a larger, more costly repair.
When a roof inspector comes to your home, they will conduct either a physical or aerial inspection using a drone. Drone inspections are becoming increasingly popular, as they give the roofer a full view of your roof’s entire surface and allow access to portions of the roof that would be otherwise inaccessible. They are also safer.
The inspection focuses on integrity of your roofing materials, the gutters, and flashing. Inspectors also check areas around roofing protrusions, such as vents, chimneys, and skylights — as these seams are prone to leaking.
An inspection once a year should be sufficient to catch any potential issues before they snowball. However, if your area has recently experienced inclement weather, it’s a good idea to schedule an inspection sooner rather than later.
