If you have experienced a leak in your home or business we are just a click away from having your roof protecting you, your family and your valuables once again.
The most common cause for leaks in a home or business is due to a compromise somewhere in your roofing system. This compromised spot (or area) may be very small and even difficult to spot to the untrained eye.
Roofing damage that causes leaks can be from high winds lifting up your shingles (or other roofing material) allowing moisture to enter in. Damage can also be caused by hail, which can damage a roof surface sufficiently to allow rain to seep in. Another type of damage that can cause a leak is from debris carried by high winds striking your roof at speed, or a tree branch falling onto your home. Even animals like squirrels and other rodents can damage your roof, allowing rain water to enter your roofing layers and damage the decking (your structural roof that is made typically of plywood) of your house or business.
Roof Repair Experts
A roof leak is a serious issue for more reasons than you might at first suspect.
Beyond the obvious matter of rain or other moisture entering your home and damaging your home’s interior and belongings, there are a number of other factors involved.
An area of your roof that allows water to enter into your attic can spread beneath and saturate your roof’s underlayment (a protective layer between your decking and the shingles or other material that form the outer layer of your roof). If this occurs the growth of damaging mold is possible, as well as the possible warping of your decking which can compromise a larger portion of your roofing system.
Once a leak has penetrated your roofing system and decking it will enter into your attic.
Attics are a prime growing environment for mold with their sunless expanse and warm air. Attic insulation can be a nesting ground of sorts for this unsightly and potentially dangerous fungus, which can potentially expel its spores into the air in your home. In addition to ruining any items and insulation in its path, mold spores in your homes air can become a serious health hazard for you and your family.
If a leak you can see is such a problem, what about the ones that you might not see for a long time?
Leaks into the space between your interior walls or your exterior siding can cause damage and create the same mold issues as can spring up in your attic.
As you can clearly see, the potential for damage caused by even a small leak can lead to big problems costing you money and time to solve. Having one of our experts conduct a free, no obligation inspection of your home’s roof can save you this headache.
