Roof leaks can be caused by many different things. Storm damage from hail, tree damage from falling limbs, damage by people walking on your roof, old worn out shingles, cracked and sun damaged shingles…the list goes on and on. However, 90% of all roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. Rarely does the actual roofing product fail.
Flashing is found near any roof penetration area such as chimneys, walls, vent pipes, and as chimneys, walls, vent pipes, and valley areas where roof angles join together. During a roof repair, it is necessary to look for any other roof damage that could lead to additional problems. If leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to be exposed to the elements.
In addition, the poor installation of roof shingles, which are sometimes nailed incorrectly, may need to be addressed. If roof shingles are missing, these will need to be replaced also. Clogged gutters could also be a cause of roofing problems. Water may overflow the back of the gutter and leak along the walls and inside of the home. In addition, flue pipes inside of a chimney can cause water to leak if they are not properly aligned.
