If your roof is leaking, then you’ll want to schedule a professional roof repair service such as ARS Roofing right away. A leaking roof is no small matter. Even the smallest leak can grow to the point where it is causes severe water damage to the structure of your home or the possessions and furniture inside, not to mention that the longer you go without having it repaired, the more damage it can cause to the roof itself, eventually requiring extensive repairs that will end up being quite costly. Unfortunately, not all roof leaks are caught in time. However, the following are a few signs that you have a leaking roof that you should look out for:
- Roof damage – Take a walk around your property and look up at your roof. If you can spot any broken, missing or buckled roofing materials, you may have a roof leak.
- Roof holes – Holes found in your roof are generally a pretty good indicator of a leak. Don’t go out onto the roof in search of holes – you don’t want to risk your safety. Instead, head up to your attic. You can identify holes in the roof by turning all of your attic lights off during the day and looking to see if any sunlight is penetrating through your roof into the attic. If sunlight is coming in, rain will come in as well.
- Ceiling damage – If you notice any water stains or sagging areas on the ceilings inside of your house, then there is a very good chance that they are a result of a leak coming in from your roof. If there are roof fixtures located directly above these stains or sagging areas (such as chimneys or vents), they very well may be the source of the leaks since the flashing around them can be vulnerable to damage in harsher weather conditions.
