No matter how diligently your roof has been maintained over the years, it will eventually be in need of repairs. Unpredictable, wet weather can cause water to pool on your roof and begin to seep into your building. This can cause your roof and its shingles to weaken and wear down. These sorts of problems, when repaired and replaced quickly, can help prevent serious leaks that may lead to additional damage to the interior structure and possibly even more costly repairs.
Some of the most common causes of roof leaks include:
- Improper Drainage: whether caused by clogged gutters or ice dam buildup, improper drainage around your building’s roof can cause water to pool and create leaks.
- Cracks in Flashing: Flashing is a less visible component of your roof’s shingles used to create an important waterproof barrier beneath the shingles. If the flashing or the sealant used to install the flashing is eroded or cracked, a leak is likely to ensue.
- Broken Shingles: Possibly the most visible of common causes, broken or missing shingles are a sure sign that your roof is at risk for leaks, and can be caused by an array of natural causes like high winds or heavy rain and snow.
