How Do I Know My Roof Is Leaking
As we mentioned, most often when you have a leaking roof, the evidence is hidden. It’s very rare that we see huge, obvious leaks. More common is a slow and steady leak that damages your roof over time. This is especially true of homeowners who do not do regular maintenance checks on their roof. Many Portland residents don’t know about the problem until it’s caused major, costly damage to their roof.
A few sights you can look out for if you suspect your roof is leaking include clear signs of water, especially in the walls or carpet. You’ll also usually see water stains on the ceilings or water spots along the roof of exterior walls. Trapped moisture can be a clear indicator of roof moss. Because moss tends to grow in cool, damp places, the combination of shaded roof areas and water can be the perfect spot for moss to develop over time. You should be extra diligent when checking these areas.
Missing shingles or warped tiles will also expose your roof to the elements, putting you at risk of leaks. If there is excessive debris in your gutters, it’s hard for water to drip down your roof. The more water that backs up and stays on your roof, the easier it is to erode your roof until it gets a leak.
The obvious first step in preventing leaks in your roof is to keep it clean and clear of debris. But you should also make a habit of doing regular maintenance checks with a team of professionals. They will know exactly what to look for and how to identify any damage on your roof that the eye can’t see.
