Homeowners often don’t know their roof is leaking until water stains begin to appear on their ceiling or walls. By the time these become noticeable, your home is likely heavily damaged. Even small leaks can lead to big problems. Roof leaks typically begin as shingles begin to fail. Water leaks onto the wood of the roof, eventually making its way into a home’s attic and insulation. If water continues to leak into the home, it will eventually flow into the ceiling and down the walls, where it becomes noticeable.
Determining the Cause
Often, the damage isn’t visible to the naked eye, so if you suspect damage, call a roofing professional to take a look. Other times, missing shingles, dents, or holes make damage obvious. Homeowners with access to their attics can also look there for proof of incoming water. You may be able to determine the source of the leak, or you may not. Common causes of roof leaks include:
- Roof’s age
- Brick chimneys
- Flashing strips
- Missing shingles
- Clogged gutters
- Wear and tear from weather
