We have written this How To guide to inform you What to do if you have a Leaking Roof!

The roof plays an important role in protecting your home and everything inside of it. The slightest leak can compromise the integrity of your roof, and cause considerable damage to your home's structure if not taken care of immediately!

There Are Many Reasons For Your Roof Leakage!

Roof leaks can occur for a variety of reasons. Severe weather, especially hail storms and high winds, can cause major damage. Another cause is a lack of, or incorrectly installed flashing around the chimney. Missing shingles will also lead to roof leaks. Shingles are responsible for preventing water from seeping into a roof's decking, which is usually made of wood.

A Quick Way To Check For Roof Leaks

Roof Leak Dripping ExampleIt's not hard to spot a roof leak. Look for water spots, or yellowish areas on your ceiling. After a heavy rain fall, check your property for missing shingles. Another tip is to inspect your attic during a down poor. Go up when it's dark and shine a flashlight in suspect areas. The light will reflect off the falling water and easily identify the leak or it's location.


If You Have A Leaky Roof Call in the Professionals!

Call in a Roofing Contractor to inspect the damage. A quality roofer should perform a comprehensive examination of the roof, and identify all points of leakage. Depending on the extent of the damage and the age of your roof, the contractor will recommend a spot repair or overall replacement.
