Common Causes of Roof Leaks

When your roof begins to leak, it can be a major inconvenience and cause significant damage throughout your home.

Water leaks can cause mold and mildew to grow throughout your home, impacting your indoor air quality.

Shingle Damage

Over time your roof will begin to take on damage, from weather like heavy winds, rain, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

You can sometimes visually see if shingles are missing or are cracked from the ground, but there may be more damage you cannot see. It is important to get these damages repaired when you notice them to prevent roof leaks.

Consider a roof inspection if you see damaged shingles from your lawn, there may be more than you know.

Gutters

Your gutters can oftentimes get clogged or fill up with debris and leaves if they are not cleaned, especially in the fall.

Water overflow can impact leaks around your home or on your porch and if bad enough can impact the structural integrity.

Be sure to clear your gutter every once in a while to ensure when the rain comes, it can be removed properly.

Skylights

The beautiful natural light may brighten up your home, but if your skylights are incorrectly installed, they can put your home in danger.

Improper sealing can let water through into your home. Whether you have skylights or not, your roof is supposed to protect your home and your family.
