The most common causes of roof leaks

  • Your Flashing Has Cracked: Why it happens: In the event that your flashing is left exposed, elements like wind and rain could be the reason behind its crack
  • You Have Broken Shingles: What does it look like Look up! Since shingles are the exterior layer of a roof, you should be able to identify missing shingles by seeing different-colored patches on your roof.
  • Your Valleys Aren’t Properly Sealed How to fix it: This job should be done by a professional due to its complexity. Your roofer will fix the problem by putting in a new barrier and covering with shingles.
  • Your Gutters Are Clogged Why it happens: Your gutters are meant to help water travel away from the roof. When a blockage forms and they get clogged, that travel stops. Rainwater will then pool in one area of the roof and have more of an opportunity to seep through cracks.
  • You’re Using It Too Much How to fix it: Avoid walking on your roof whenever possible. Hire a professional roofer to do your fixes, since they are trained on how to avoid the most easily-damaged areas.
