The Many Causes of a Leaky Roof

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016 - Post by Pond1920

Is your roof in need of repair? If so, there’s a good chance that water is somehow getting into your home.

While a leaky roof is a big deal, here’s something to remember: there is a fix for every problem.

If you’re facing this problem, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance. We can inspect your roof, provide feedback, and help you understand what to do next.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common causes of a leaky roof:

·      Old age. Over time, your roof will begin to break down. When this happens, the chance of a leak is much greater.

·      Roof vents. Plastic vents can crack over time. Along with this, gaps can form between vents and shingles. Fortunately, this can be one of the easiest fixes, as long as the problem is found in a timely manner.

·      Gutter backup. Many people never consider the fact that a backed up gutter can damage their roof. Don’t let this persist, as it can cause more problems than you ever imagined possible.

These aren’t the only causes of a leaky roof, but they are definitely among the most common. If you need help diagnosing this problem, don’t wait to reach out. We’re available to provide professional assistance!
