Signs of a Roof Leak

Roofing RepairEarly roof leak detection can prevent excessive water damage and save you a lot of money on your repair bill. Unfortunately, locating roof leaks can be difficult until they start to cause flooding and other serious problems. Take a look at the list of early warning signs from our MEIS Roofing & Construction team below to learn what you need to look for to determine when your home is in need of a professional roof leak repair service.

  • Broken or curling shingles: Shingles can move or change shape as they come in contact with water. Keep in mind that changes in how your shingles look alone does not necessarily mean that your roof has a leak. Shingles can be affected by many things including hot air in the attic or incorrectly installed felt. Only an experienced Dallas roofer can tell you for sure why your shingles look abnormal.
  • Mold and mildew: Some growth is normal, but you should be on the lookout for serious infestations. Mold and mildew spores thrive in moist environments, so their presence can be indicative of a leak or other serious problems.
  • Rotting roof: Roof leaks can cause a lot of damage over time including rust and rotting. Roof rot usually happens in the later stages of neglect. Because a rotting roof can be unstable, schedule a professional roof inspection appointment as soon as possible.
  • Condensation stains on your ceiling or walls: Any unexplained moisture is a sure sign that you have a leak somewhere in your house. To determine whether your roof is the source of the problem, get it inspected by a professional roofer.

While some minor roof leaks can be fixed with a few basic supplies from a local home improvement store, it is always best to hire a professional Dallas roofer. Tracking leaks is difficult for experts, but it is even harder for homeowners who do not have any special equipment or roof repair training.
