When a roof leak invades your home, it usually comes as a surprise; and not the good kind. Unfortunately, they are hard to detect and unless you are looking for it, you may miss it all together. Because roof leaks usually have to go through an attic before it reaches a main living area, the problem is usually way worse than it initially could have been. This is a major reason that roof inspections are so important because they catch the problem before it has a chance to get any worse. There are a few signs to look out for though that will alert you that you probably have a roof leak.
Signs To Look Out For
Mold – Mold thrives in moisture. So If you start to begin to see mold growing on your ceiling, this means that water is coming into your wall from somewhere and more than likely it is from your roof.
Bent Up Shingles – The shingles on your roof are meant to lay flat so when you begin to see them bend up, it is a sign that there is water damage that has occurred in that spot. Shingles are very durable and can usually last through intense weather but, when water sits on the shingle for too long it will start to bend and pull away from your roof causing major damage.
Brown Stains On Ceiling – This is usually the sign that most people notice first before they realize they have a water leak. Water coming through your roof will stain the ceiling.
