Causes of a Leaky Roof
It is important to understand what can cause a leaky roof and to watch for any signs of water entering your home. Water coming through your roof can cause significant damage to your home and create the need for costly repairs. Some of the most common causes of a leaking roof include:
- The roof has reached the end of its life: All roofs have a lifespan. As your roof reaches the end of its life it will begin to deteriorate and allow water to pass through.
- Fallen tree limb: If you have tree limbs hanging over your roof it is important to trim them back. Falling tree limbs can cause minor to significant damage to your roof.
- High winds: Wind storms can damage your roof and push water into your home. High winds can also cause tree limbs or debris to land on your roof causing damage.
- Vent, skylight. chimney flashing leaking: The areas where another object meets the roof material is a natural weak point. If the flashing between this object and the roof deteriorates, fails or moves water can seep into your home.
- Ice or snow on the roof: Ice and snow can be very damaging to a roof. As ice freezes and expands it can damage the roofing materials or can build dams that do not let water drain from the roof. Heavy snow on top of a roof can also create damage that leads to leaks.
- Low-grade materials: If the company that installed your roof used inferior materials, these materials can deteriorate quickly and cause leaks.
- Poor installation: If your roof was not built or repaired correctly there may be weak points where water is able to penetrate the roofing materials.
