Leaks and roof problems

A leak in the attic?

After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of a leak. It could indicate damaged shingles, inadequate underlayment or deteriorated flashing.

Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint?

Moisture trapped in the house due to poor ventilation can cause exterior paint to peel and blister.

Stains on interior ceilings and walls – mold or mildew growth?

Stains, or worse, mold, can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.

Exterior decay in sheathing and/or siding?

Excess moisture can also contribute to decay, when it first starts it gets rapidly worse

Missing, cracked, or curled shingles?

Dry, cracked, or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it’s time to invest in a new roof.  It’s better to fix the problem sooner than later

Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof?

Vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles.

Excessive energy costs?

Inadequate ventilation can possibly drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
