Roof Leak Repair
Dangers Of A Leaking Roof
- Damage to the home structure- An extreme roof leak can cause your entire roof to cave-in. A collapsed ceiling can sometimes result in a fatal accident.
- Mold and mildew- one of the most common consequences of roof leaks is the sprouting of mold and mildew. It can easily spread throughout the home and can lead to serious health problems. Nasal congestion, rhinitis, inflammations and asthma, are common problems that may arise with the presence of mold in your home.
- Fire hazard- A leak can lead to the water reaching your electrical circuits. This can result in a short circuit which can lead to a fire.
- Slip and fall accidents- this is the most common accident just waiting to happen. Roof leaks can leave small puddles of water in your home.
- High energy bills- the water from the leak can affect the insulation of your home. This leads to an increased use of heating systems.
What Causes A Roof Leak?
- Shingle damage- roofs that were installed approximately 30 years ago were made of a different material. This material is not very durable and can be damaged easily. Old shingles on these roofs can crack and lead to leaks.
- Roof flashing- this is the thin metal sheet that covers the joint in a roof. It can easily corrode and could be installed wrong.
- Chimney-Collected water in the chimney can easily permeate into small cracks that can lead to bigger leaks.
These are some of the most common problems that can lead to leaks in your roofs. Another common issue regarding roofs can be a leaking gutter which can be caused by collection of dirt and debris. This can lead to sagging or breakage of the gutter. However, these problems can be easily fixed by our expert roof plumbers.
