Your roof protects the interior of your home from the elements, including rain, snow, and wind. It also has a significant impact on the visual appeal of your property that can increase or decrease the value of your home. While you probably don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about your roof you should take a close look here are some warning signs you should look for:
Do you see water stains on the ceiling or in your attic? If you notice any sort of discoloration, particularly if it’s combined with mold, this is a big sign of a leak.
Buckling or missing shingles could be a sign that the roof is compromised and that water is passing beneath and into the deck of the roof.
Look into your attic and look up, and if you see daylight or the presence of light, this is a sign there’s a leak.
Damaged flashing is a sign that your roof could be leaking, or that it’s highly susceptible to future leaking.
A roof leak may not seem like a big deal now. However, not addressing it immediately could create significant problems like in your home or business-like, electrical damage, mold, and it can also compromise your insulation efficiency. These are just a few of the most common side effects of waiting too long to address a leak. Most of these issues can be avoided by acting with urgency.
