Is Your Roof Leaking? 6 Signs to Look For
Your Residential Roof May Leaking, Look For The Six Signs
Six Signs That Your Roof Is Leaking
As many plumbing experts know, leaking roofs can cause a plethora of unwanted problems such as water damage in your home. If these problems pop up, they can adversely affect your emotional and economic equilibrium. For this reason, it's good to be able to detect signs of a leaky roof early. In so doing, you can attain the professional assistance necessary to correct the problem and prevent structural damage to your property. With that idea in mind, consider whether you're experiencing any of the following six signs of a leaky roof:
1. A Loss of Granules
The granules of your roof's shingles can grow loose as a result of aging and ongoing exposure due to water damage. When your shingles start to lose their granules, the roof is subjected to faster deterioration.
2. Buckling Shingles
The shingles of your roof can start to buckle as a result of hot air coming from your attic. This hot air is an indication of poor ventilation and can lead to a build-up of moisture.
3. Mold And Mildew Growth
If you notice possible mold growing inside your home or on the roof, the growth could have been caused by a leaky roof. This is the case because a leaky roof will create the excess water and moist environment that mold likes to thrive in.
4. Roof Rot
Another sign of a leaky roof is roof rot. Roof rot is a term that refers to the process of your roof deteriorating rapidly. When this rapid deterioration transpires, your property can become increasingly susceptible to water damage because of potential leaks.
5. Damaged Skylights
Damaged skylights can cause your rainwater to leak into the home and cause water damage.
6. Damaged Flashing
When your flashing is improperly sealed or damaged against your roof, it can make it much simpler for excess water to start seeping into your home.
