A leak on the roof can become a bigger and more expensive problem when it’s left unaddressed. This risk is the reason why it’s important to do preventive roof repair when these issues are still relatively harmless. That said, figuring out where the leak is coming from is easier said than done.
1. Cracked Shingles
Cracks and chipped shingles can allow water to find its into your home. Water damage may even increase the size of the leaks in a very short time. Asphalt shingles that have lost their protective granules are also more susceptible to leaks, and the accumulated water also weakens the entire structure.
It’s vital that you have these damaged shingles repaired or replaced as soon as possible. At AnyWeather Roofing, we offer an in-depth roofing inspection as part of our general roofing services. This allows us to check the true condition of your roof and allow you to stay ahead of existing problems, such as leaks.
2. Damaged Flashings
The thin strips of metal that are located on the most vulnerable parts of the roof are also at risk to water damage. When they become loose or are damaged significantly, they cause water to seep into these vulnerable parts and form a leak. Fortunately, this problem is easy to address and simply involves either refitting the flashings or replacing the damaged one.
3. Clogged Gutters
Gutters that are clogged with leaves, twigs and other organic material accumulates water instead of properly redirecting it away from the roof. This accumulated water eventually spills out onto the roof and even the siding, causing leaks to form. General cleaning and maintenance solves this and avoids a rather messy leak in the future.
