How to Keep Your Attic Free of Water this Spring

Published on May 03, 2021

Spring brings consistent rainfall to the Greater Toronto Area. If there's a leak in your roof, it can quickly penetrate throughout the attic and cause all kinds of damage to the home. In a worst-case scenario, a professional roof leak repair or attic leak repair would be required to resolve the situation.

A seemingly minor roof leak, when left unattended, could lead to severe damage in the attic. If you’re currently dealing with a roof leak, EcoComfort can provide the repairs and retrofits to get things back on track. Whatever the scope of a leaky roof, it should be addressed immediately.


What Causes a Roof Leak? 

Before doing any roof leak repairs, it’s essential to identify the cause of the leak. Typically, it’s some form of damage to the roof that causes water to trickle through. It could be a hole in the roof - it could be missing or damaged roof shingles - or it could be gutters that have been compromised. All of these can cause water to flow into the attic and often flow into the house.

Taking Preventive Measures 

Preventing water leaks in the attic is all about seasonal maintenance. It’s about preventing dead tree limbs from falling on the roof. It’s about cleaning gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage. And it’s about having a roofing contractor inspect the roof on a regular seasonal basis. Roofing specialists can spot all kinds of issues and problems that allow for water leaks.

The Signs of Water Leakage 

Water leaks, whatever their size, can wreak havoc in your attic, on your walls, and even in the foundation of a home. Quite often, a water stain that appears on the ceiling is a sign that water is leaking somewhere. Ice damming (freezing and thawing of winter snow and ice) can also cause problems under the roof shingles, and further cause water leaks through the roof structure.

Effectively Fixing Roof Leaks

When repairing roof leaks, the first priority is to identify the source and cause of the leak. Most homeowners would be hard-pressed to find a water leak in the attic, let alone have the capacity to repair the problem. Clearly, this is work best left to professionals who have the experience and expertise to provide the proper fix, with long-lasting results and guaranteed workmanship.
