Here are some prevalent roof leak culprits:
- Loose, Cracked or Rotting Shingles. If your roof is between 20 and 30 years old, you may see signs of aging like cracking or rotting. The shingles come loose sometimes and drop to the floor. The underlying will be exposed by a weakened exterior layer and ongoing exposure to wind and sun may wear away the layers, eventually leading to leakage of the ceiling. You need to have it inspected if your roof is in such a condition. Only repairs may be needed on your roof, which will certainly cost less. If done properly, it can extend the life of your roof for a couple of years. This is sufficient time to prepare for a planned substitute of the ceiling.
- Roofing Nails Backing Out. Apart from roofing shingles, there are times when roofing nails can retreat. This leaves tiny holes that water can readily penetrate, particularly when it is near to the edge where wind-driven rain can enter causing the roof to leak. Usually, these little holes are imperceptible to the untrained eye, but not when skilled roofers inspect your roof. Early catching this problem enables you to avoid larger repair costs or even premature replacement of the roof.
- Damaged or dislodged flashing. Flashing is a metal piece that protects valleys and wherever the roof meets a vertical surface, such as walls and dormers. This could leave the breaks in the ceiling exposed causing a leaking roof if damaged or dislodged by powerful winds. Reparations in good time can assist mitigate leaks created by flashing problems.
- Cracked rubber boots. Plumbing vents and everything from the ceiling needs a “boot” rubber. By defending the region where it meets the roof, these operate like flashing. Continued external exposure will eventually break the rubber boot causing the roof to leak and need to be replaced. Regular maintenance and timely repairs assist to identify these issues and prevent leakage of the ceiling.
