The truth is, even if you see water or a damp spot, the actual leak may not be right there, sometimes the water spot is some distance from the real roof damage causing the roof leak.

As a professional roofing company, we know how to find and fix roof leaks of all sizes and types. We know all the tricks that water can play.

We all know water can travel down-hill, but it can also travel many feet from where it enters the roofing system before it makes itself known in the form of a visibly identifiable roof leak.

Roof Leak Detection

For homes with drywall or paneling on the ceiling, water can hide even longer and travel even further. A small leak may not be noticeable until an extended hard rainfall, but once you see it do something! Call a roofing company even a tiny leak is letting in dangerous moisture that will degrade insulation and give mold and wood-rotting fungus the perfect environment to grow.

Common Causes of Roof Leaks

  • Missing, cracking or damaged shingles
  • Ice damming
  • Clogged gutters
  • Damaged flashing/joints
  • Soffit & fascia damage

SIGNS OF INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR WATER DAMAGE:

Aside from an obvious leak, there are other more subtle signs that there is “trouble up on the roof”.

Inside your house, look for discolored plasterboard, cracked paint and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

If you can get a look at your roof, make note of any cracked, lose or missing shingles. Cracked seams, damaged or missing flashings, and excessive cinder-like material collecting in the gutters or noticeable at the end of downspouts, means the shingles are breaking down.

CUSTOMIZED REPAIR TO YOUR ROOF’S “HIGH STRESS ZONES” INCLUDING:

  • Replacing and repairing the decking panels beneath the roof.
  • The roof fascia, which runs along the edge of the roof.
  • Roof vents used to disperse heat and humidity from the attic below the roof (to prevent ice).
  • The valley, or areas of the roof, where multiple roof slopes converge.
  • Repair or replace the membrane under the shingles that protects the shingles.
  • Eaves membrane and drip edges which prevents water from collecting under the shingles. In the winter, this water will freeze and cause ice dams.
  • And of course, the flashing around chimneys, plumbing vents and skylights.
