Roof leaks can be caused by many different things. Storm damage from high winds, damage from falling tree limbs, damage by people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles the list goes on. However, 90% of all roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. Rarely does the actual roofing product fail. Flashing is found near any roof penetration area such as chimney areas, step, apron and valley areas, where roof angles join together. During a roof repair, it is necessary to look for any other roof damage that could lead to additional problems. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to be exposed to dampness.
In addition, poor installation of roof shingles, which are sometimes nailed incorrectly, may need to be addressed. Any missing shingles need to be replaced.
Clogged gutters may cause roofing problems. Water may overflow the back of the gutter and leak along the walls inside of the home. In addition, flue pipes inside of a chimney can cause water to leak if they are not properly aligned.
It is very important that individuals check their roof for needed repairs regularly. Most opt for spring because of the fair weather and due to the fact that spring storms and heavy rains make you think more about your roofs integrity! The extreme weather fluctuations in Florida provides year round opportunities for you to replace or repair your roof. Waiting to fix a roof may cause damage in other parts of your home.
