WATER DAMAGE IN ROOFING
The most noticeable signs of a roof with water damage are visible in your home!
Here are 6 signs of water damage to look out for:
Dark or Wet Spots:
Discoloration on the ceiling and the interior & exterior walls of your home
Cracking, Bubbling, or Flaking:
Drywall or paint on the ceiling or walls show damage
Pooling Water or Puddles:
Ongoing leaks can cause pools of water around your home
Sounds of Water:
You may not be able to see water dripping around our home! Sometimes, you might be able to hear water dripping instead.
Damp, Musty, or Moldy Smell:
Unpleasant smells can be caused by water damage
Without improper ventilation in your home, moisture may stay trapped causing problems with the paint. Signs to watch for with your paint are peeling, discoloration, and bubbles. This could mean there is a leak or that your attic insulation was not properly installed.
Without proper care, the water damage can cause future damage to your home like; decay, rot, mildew, mold, moss, and allow pests to take advantage of the weakened structure.
It is important to have a roofing professional inspect your roof if you suspect water damage to prevent further damage to your home!
LOOSE & BROKEN SHINGLES
Shingles are a line of defense to protect against water, wind, hail, and debris damage. It is important to act quickly if you see any damage to your home’s shingles.
Signs of damaged shingles can include downward and upward curling, cracks, or shingles falling off.
Mold can also manifest on shingles in forms of dark streaks that may resemble dirt. A roofing expert will be able to inspect the streaks and conclude if there is mold growing on your roof.
If your roof displays any of these signs, your home is at risk for high damage from weather elements or debris.
PONDING WATER ON ROOF:
While ponding water is less common on standard roofs, we have seen a rise in this damage from modern, flat roofs. This occurs when the water forms ponds on the roof and is not able to drain properly. Flat rooftops must be angled and sealed to prevent the ponds that can causing moisture damage if left alone.
