A roof leak can cause major damage to your roof in a short amount of time. It is important as a home or business owner that you pay attention to signs that you may have a roof leak of some kind so that you do not find yourself with major damage from water. It is hard to tell if you have a roof leak. There are a few signs to pay attention to, but the most crucial of them all is to make sure you call out an inspector at least once a year.
3 Signs You May Have a Roof Leak
Yellow Mark On Ceiling – This is one of the most common tell-tale signs that you have a roof leak. This is because it usually is a giant yellow or brown stain on the top of your living room or some other place you don’t want to see a stain. When water leaks through your roof, it has nowhere else to go except through your drywall. This will stain your walls and may even cause major damage to your drywall. Pay attention to this sign, as it may be the next thing you see in your living room.
Mold – Nobody ever wants to hear the word mold in regards to their home or anywhere else for that matter. If you are worried about a roof leak, climb up onto your roof and see if you can see mold growing on your shingles. Mold thrives in moist places so, if you see mold on your roof, this is a major sign that you have some kind of leaking happening on your roof.
Inspection – We mentioned this before, but it is important to say it again as it is the most important factor in preventing a roof leak. Having a roof inspection done may seem tedious, but when it can save the life of your roof or your home in some cases, you should do it.
