Possible Causes of Roof Leaks
A leaky roof can lead to significant problems if not addressed right away. But a roof leak does not necessarily mean that your entire roof needs to be replaced. Timely and effective roof leak repair services can keep your roof in good shape for years to come. Have regular roof inspections to avoid further damage to your property and pay attention to these common causes of leaky roofs:
Broken or Missing Roof Tiles or Shingles
Missing tiles or shingles can easily turn into roof leaks. Look for missing or damaged tiles or shingles that could be allowing water to penetrate your home.
Buckling or Curling Shingles
Shingles that are not laying flat on the roof deck may not perform as intended and could allow water to enter your home. Have buckling or curling shingles repaired as soon as possible.
Granule Loss in Shingle Roofs
Granule loss in shingle roofs is usually due to normal wear and tear. Nevertheless, this wear means your roof will not function at its best and could spring leeks. Tampa roof leak repair can address granule loss in a specific area, but if this problem is evident in the entire roof, it may be time for a roof replacement.
Another common cause of leaks is damaged flashing. Keep in mind that the function of the flashing is to protect some of the most vulnerable parts of the roof. If you see any signs of damage to your flashing, have it addressed right away.
Most Leak-Prone Areas of Your Roof
Inspecting and properly maintaining the following areas can help you avoid problems down the road. If you notice damage in these areas, call us for repairs as soon as possible.
This is one of the most common areas for roof leak repairs. If your roof is old, be sure to inspect the roof field, especially before the rainy season. This includes the expanse of shingles, tiles, or slate. For asphalt shingles, watch out for missing granules and cracks. You should also pay attention to loose nails.
Roof valleys are also one of the most leak-prone areas of your roof, especially during the rainy season. Improperly installed roof valleys, or those damaged due to bad weather conditions, can leak. Repairs to leaking roof valleys should be handled by an experienced roofer to avoid a repeat of the leak.
Leaks around chimneys usually happen due to damaged flashings or porous masonry from spalling bricks. Pay attention to stained ceilings and rotten roof sheathing around the chimney area. If you see these signs, be sure to call a contractor with experience repairing chimney leaks. Not all roofers know how to correctly install flashing for a chimney, so some will just leave the existing flashing in place. Be sure your contractor has the experience to handle the job properly.
Dangers of a Leaky Roof
Roof leaks often lead to structural damages if not immediately addressed. When this happens, you can face much bigger problems. Don’t ignore that small leak you see in the attic or ceiling. This can eventually lead to damaged rafters, wall framing, exterior trim, and fascia boards.
Save yourself the expense and hassle of structural roof damage by calling HD Roofing at the first sign of any roof leak.
Damage to the Attic Insulation
This is another scenario you don’t want to encounter. Damaged attic insulation can ruin the entire roofing system, requiring replacement of the insulation as well as structures damaged by prolonged contact with wet insulation.
