Why is My Roof Leaking? And How To Properly Fix It.

Published on October 09, 2020

There are many reasons for a roof to leak, and it’s certainly not uncommon in a residential home. Whatever the reason, it's a situation that demands immediate roof leak repair (and sometimes even emergency roof repair).

The first step, of course, is to determine what’s causing the roof leak and to identify the source. The problem for an average homeowner is that the roof and attic aren’t readily visible – it’s an area that is often neglected.

The roof is a much more important component of the home than homeowners realize. That’s why regular and ongoing maintenance is so important. Without it, repair work is neglected, and there’s added potential for damage.

Roof Leak Repair Requires A Professional Approach  

Whatever the type of roof, preventive maintenance is highly recommended. That way, problems can be identified early and roof leak repair can be performed before major damage develops.

Although homeowners can keep on eye on the roof for possible problems, it’s far better to have the roof professionally assessed from time to time, and to diagnose issues that require a fix.

Broken Roof Shingles

Roof shingles are easy to view, even from the ground. It’s possible to notice missing shingles and to identify potential roof leak areas. Worst case, roof shingles may have flown off during a storm.

“Valleys” Not Sealed

Where sloped areas of the roof come together, the “valleys” may not be properly sealed, and then rainwater can cause leaking over time. Noticeable wet spots could signal possible damage areas.

Damaged Roof Vent

Roof vents that provide attic ventilation can be damaged after a particularly harsh winter. This type of damage can easily cause a roof leak and can cause additional problems inside the attic.

Skylight Problems

When a skylight leaks, it’s easy to notice inside the home, and at least provide a short-term fix. Long term, this problem requires a proper remedy and a solution that will prevent roof damage.

Clogged Up Gutters

In the fall and spring, clogged gutters tend to overflow with water, rather than flowing through the downspout system. Left unattended, this could be the start of damage to the roof and shingles.

Attic Condensation

Without proper ventilation, the attic and roof cavity will trap condensation, with moisture quickly accumulating. At some point, water will start to leak either throughout the attic or into the home.
