With all of the different kinds of materials transitioning on your roof, there is a plethora of ways rain water could leak into your home. Many of these materials are affected by the sun, wind, and hail and as a result, break down very quickly.
What do I look for?
Do you hear water dripping in your wall? Do you have soggy carpet? Do you have stains on your ceiling? Do you have breakers tripping during a rainstorm? Do you have weak spots on your roof, rotted roof decking, or bowing in your roof? If you have any of these symptoms- you might have a roof leak!
What can happen if it’s not fixed?
If you go into denial (not the river in Egypt) and leave your roof in disrepair then decking and roof joists will rot leading to structural damage, stains will appear on your ceiling, sheetrock will start falling onto your floor, and masonry will start to crack. Worst case scenario you may have to replace isolated parts of your roof, roof joists, decking, insulation, and sheetrock, or even your entire roof!
What is the solution?
We can help you avoid all of this expense by a preventive maintenance inspection at the first sign of any of the symptoms mentioned above.
