Address Leaking Roofs ASAP

I'm sure you are aware that you shouldn't put off fixing a leaking roof for too long, so I won't lecture you on that.

Shoulda called a roofer!
OK, just a little: any water seepage into your home can cause a lot of problems that you won't want to deal with later, including potential health and safety issues.

Moisture inside your wall cavities can lead to harmful and costly to remove mold, will reduce the effectiveness of your insulation resulting in higher energy bills and can compromise the structural integrity or your roofing and wall systems. None of this is good.

Get in touch with a local roofer and get your shingles repaired and your leaks plugged!

comment Thank for the tough love Andy. As a new homeowner, I probably haven't been giving my roof leaks the respect that they deserve. I'm on it, just submitted a request to find a roofer in my town! - Todd1414 6 years, 8 months ago

Five Common Causes of Roof Leaks

Click here
A roof leak can be a difficult thing to track down. Here are five common causes of roof leaks. Find a good local roofer to help you determine if any of these are the cause of your own leak.
  • Ice dams: when snow melts and refreezes over your eave, it can create a "dam" which allows further runoff to work it's way under your shingles, which are most likely fine
  • Faulty flashing around a chimney or skylight: look for cracks, rust or loose flashing, any of these can allow a large amount of water in
  • Faulty step flashing where a roof meets a wall: a step flashing is where a roof climbs next to a vertical wall, like above, look for rust and any damaged flashing
  • Wind blown roof leaks: sometimes Mother Nature can make a perfectly intact roof leak by blowing rain under the shingles, a roofing cement on the roof edges can help
  • Damage in the field of shingles: for older roofs the leak may be in the shingle field itself, look for missing or damaged shingles and signs of excessive wear and age
