Signs That Your Roof Is Leaking
When your roof has a leak, sometimes the signs aren’t always as obvious as you may think. While in the case of major roof damage, it may be quite obvious that your roof has a leak, in most cases roof leaks can be more subtle and harder to detect than you may think. Here are some of the signs to look for to determine if your home has a roof leak:
- Your roof or exterior walls are growing moss or mold
- There are water stains in the interior of your home or there is discoloration in certain areas of your wall(s)/ceiling(s)
- There are dark/water spots on your roof that can be see from outside of your home
- There are little drops or signs of moisture on your walls and/ceilings indoors
What To Do When There Is A Leak In Your Roof
Once you’ve determined that there is indeed a leak in your roof, there are certain steps that you should take:
- Minimize the amount of water damage your home receives by covering your possessions (i.e., furniture, electronics, etc.) with plastic.
- Use a bucket or some other type of container to contain the water leaking from your roof so that it doesn’t continue to spread.
- Try to dry your possessions and remove as much water as you can so that your home won’t sustain as much damage as it would otherwise.
- Call your local roofing contractor and have them come to your house and do any necessary roof repairs or a roof replacement if necessary.
