If you have a roof leak, you’d better fix it immediately because minor leaks can cause major damage.
Roof leaks present multiple challenges for homeowners. They never occur at a time which is convenient and they can lead to significant damage to the interior of your home. Their effects can linger long after the repair has been made in the form of mold growth on the interior surfaces of your home.
Sometimes determining the source of the roof leak can be an even greater challenge. The source of the roof leak on the outside of the home rarely matches where the leak appears on the inside of the home.
This leads to a good deal of frustration for the homeowner who is attempting to repair the leak.Locating the source of a roof leak is not an exact science. It is a process of elimination due to the fact that a roof leak may have several contributing factors and may not always be the direct result of one specific problem associated with your roof.
