Very often, we don’t even know about the damage until water starts leaking through into the home. Most homeowners just don’t have the time or the tools to go up on the roof and check it out after a big storm, leaving them vulnerable to leaky ceilings.
If you’ve noticed water spots on the ceiling, then this can mean that water has somehow gotten into your roof. Most often water gets in through damaged pipe and chimney flashings or through damaged tiles or shingles. Though many homeowners like to do it themselves, climbing a ladder and walking around on the rooftop can be dangerous and isn’t recommended for everyone. One bad fall and you can spend weeks in the hospital.

All the pipes that extend upward from your roof have some type of caulk or flashing that works to prevent leaking. We check around each one of these to make sure there are no signs of damage or wear. Next, we check for signs of fungus or algae growth. This can happen if you have low-hanging branches over your roof. It’s also important to check for missing or damaged shingles. Lastly, we check around the chimney. The flashing and/or adhesive product used around the chimney will wear out over the years allowing rain to seep in.
We advise if any leaves or debris are on the roof and suggest trimming back any low-hanging branches. If you do see possible problems on your roof, call DT Roofing right away. Maintenance problems like this are an easy fix but if you wait leaks can occur that you may not see in the house, this can cause mold or other types of damage that are more expensive to correct.
Most roofs will develop a leaks years before the whole roof needs to be replaced. Leaks can be caused by localized damage, such as a damaged or missing shingle or tile. Each time you have a storm with high winds, roof damage can occur. Very often, the damage is not evident until water starts leaking into the home. Most homeowners just don’t have the time or the tools to go up on the roof and perform an inspection after a storm, leaving them vulnerable to water damage or mold.
