The Truth About Roof Leaks

Your roof is one of your home’s first line of defense against rain, snow and ice. A properly installed roof will help eliminate leaks in your home and protect you against weather all year round.

While many roof leaks are a simple repair, figuring out where a roof is leaking can be a more difficult task. Many customers believe the source of a leak is directly above where the moisture is coming from, but often it can be dripping down a rafter from somewhere else or caused the accumulation of condensation. We can help you determine the source of your roof leak and help you repair it.

A roof leak can be caused by a number of things. A few of the main sources of roof leaks are:

Missing, cracked or loose shingles, tiles or seams

Damaged or deteriorated flashing, seals and caulking

Improper attic ventilation, which can cause moisture through a buildup of condensation

Improper installation of valleys, flashing, shingles, collars, etc.

Ice Dams, which prevent proper run off and force water to back up beneath shingles

Ponding water

Exposed nail heads

Skylight flashings

Wind driven rain

Built up debris, which can trap moisture and accelerate deterioration
