Which Of The Following Damages Has Your Roof Been Affected By?
Most leaks come from areas of the roof where there is a penatration like vents, chimney flashings, pipe stacks, and skylights. Although possible, its rare to have a leak directly above the area where you notice it in your home. Skylights would be the exception here. Water will travel where there is less resistance and find its way in many areas of your home. Including but not limited to light fixtures, ridge lines, bath room and vents. Out of sight places like closets, utility rooms and inside walls can be of major concern as they go unnoticed. This is why it is a good idea to inspect your home regularly for leaks. Colored stains usually have been leaking for a while indicating possible insulation damage and/or mold growth, depending on the volume of water coming in and how quickly it dries. Leaks that are clear and damp to the touch indicate a new leak in most situations. Either way once a leak is noticed it should be taken seriously the origin found and repaired in a timely matter. Leaks can cause significant damage if left ignored and not repaired.

Most people rarely look up at there roof. Shingle blow off is a common problem here in the northern states. When noticed it is easily repaired for a minimum cost, but left unnoticed it can cause more blow off to occur due to the adjacent shingles being compromised. This allows wind to enter the exposed corners lifting more shingles off the roof. This can continue until noticed and repaired. So its very important to inspect your roof regularly for any blow off. But sometimes strong winds can compromise shingles without visual notice from the ground, if you notice a neighboring roof with blow off, its a good idea to have your roof inspected. Shingles have sealant at the bottom edge of the shingle, strong winds can separate this seal. When this occurs the next strong wind can easily blow the shingles off the roof.
