Storm damage affects more than the roof. It affects the attic as well. Late discovery of roof leaks typically can lead to more costly repair. The good news is that roof leaks and roof problems can sometimes be spotted before expensive repairs are incurred.
If you see any signs of a roof leak, it is best to act immediately. Repairs will be easier and cheaper to make if you catch the problem early. So, never ignore a roof leak, no matter how small it may be. In some cases, by the time the signs of a leak become visible, the bulk of the damage may already have been done. The sooner you act, the sooner the problem can be addressed. Preventative maintenance can help you keep away leaks so the problem never even reaches the stage of being able to visibly see water damage.
Unnoticed or uncorrected roof leak can also lead to mold. Here’s how mold conditions from roof leaks happens. The rafters and beams in attics act as a berm that channels water to wall cavities, then damage can be noticed. Mold can be difficult to spot because it tends to grow in scarcely lit places where stagnation and warmth persists. It can cause allergies or illnesses in even the healthiest of people.
These tips will help you catch roofing issues early so that you can get the repairs you need:
Thomas Quality Construction asks: Have you noticed a water stain on your ceiling? One of the most common roof repair situations we see are leaks around vent pipes. Roof vents are the pipes that protrude out and let the gases in your kitchen and bathroom escape. Although roof vents are necessary and create a balance between air exhaust and intake, the water tight seals around roof vents can get damaged over time by excessive heat, cold or wind. When this happens, vents can spring leaks. The leaking may first be seen in the attic, but if you don’t catch it right away you may see water coming into the house, dripping on the floor. If left unchecked, the water that sweeps in can eventually cause mold and structural damage to your home. The change of seasons can be nice but not so much for your roof vent pipes’ water-repelling ability. The heat of the summer and the cold of the winter can take their toll on your roof vent pipes’ flashing to retain the ability to reflect water from your home.
Attic ventilation is also an important part of roofing. Proper attic ventilation extends the life of a roof and reduces problems because it minimizes the temperature differential between the attic and the air outside. Proper ventilation will remove moisture and heat from the attic. Trapped heat and moisture can raise energy costs and damage roof system components as well as structural and personal items located in the attic. Without proper attic ventilation, numerous problems with temperature and moisture can arise and the lifetime of your roof may be significantly shortened. One of these problems is ice dams, when ice builds up in your eaves and gutters, which can buckle or fall off under the weight, causing serious and expensive damage to your home.
Although caulking around roof vents can fix the problem for a while, it’s not a permanent solution. Moreover, this can cause more problems since it may mask the damage that’s already been done to your home by the leak. Call Thomas Quality Construction and have our roof specialists examine the roof to determine the best solution. Generally speaking, if your roof vents are damaged, it’s a good idea to replace them with new ones.
