A small spot of damage on your roof can end up causing a whole lot of problems in the long run. If water gets into your roof, it can begin to seep into your walls, creating things like mold and drywall damage. Because of this, it is important to pay attention to all the signs that could mean you have a water leak. The main concern here is that the water leak will go on so long and you will end up having to have a roof replacement. We like to try to avoid this as much as possible for our customers because it is such a large expense. A few ways to tell that you have damage on your roof and may have a water leak is:
Signs To Lookout For
Mold – If you begin to see mold on your ceiling or even on your roof, this is a major sign that you are in the beginning stages of water damage or it’s been happening for a while. Mold thrives in moist places so you know that if you find mold, you will find water not too far behind that.
Yellow Stains On Ceiling – This is one of the more common ways that people recognize that they have water damage from a roof leak. Water has come in through your roof and made its way into your ceiling and through the drywall. It is important to get this taken care of right away because if it damages the drywall all over your wall, it can be very costly to have fixed.
