This week has been a rainy one so far, and with April showers right around the corner, now is not the time you want a roof leak (not that you’d ever want one). So, how can you spot a leak, and what can you do when you find one?

The most obvious sign of a roof leak is an unwelcome puddle of water in your house. However, there are several other signs you should keep your eye out for when it comes to roof leaks. Some of these include staining and water spots on your ceiling or walls, warped wood, or extra moisture in your home. Once you suspect you have a roof leak, it’s time to find the source.

If you have an attic, take a flashlight and search for any holes or sunlight coming through your roof. Also, check your roof’s exterior for missing or loose shingles, holes, or missing flashing. If you can’t visually find the leak, it might be time to call a professional to find it for you.

If a leak happens in your home, clean up the water, and give us a call ASAP. We can find and repair leaks in no time before the leak gets out of hand.
