Signs Your Roof Is Leaking
Most homeowners have little knowledge about how to keep their roofs in the optimal state. Their roof doesn’t receive maintenance for years, even decades. This is quite dangerous as it can damage not only the roof but the structure of your property, risking the lives of its inhabitants.
That’s why it is important to act as soon as the first sign of a leaking roof is detected. And at Tycos Roofing, we are experts in roof repair and roof installation. For this reason, here we show you the most important signs that your roof is already leaking.
PRESENCE OF MOLD
Mold is a fungus that must be eliminated immediately as it can reproduce all over the surface of the roof. This fungus can damage the structures of the house and cause health problems too. To clean the mold from the roof, we must consider the type of roofing material, so it is advisable to contact a specialist to eliminate mold and make sure it doesn’t reappear.
MOISTURE OR STAINS
When your rooms smell musty, it is probably because mold is growing somewhere in your house, which is a sign that water is leaking in from your roof. Also, if you have stained walls, it could signal bigger problems. For this reason, moisture and stains on the roof and walls are signs that leaks are damaging the structure and you should call Tycos Roofing for help!
WALLS ARE BULGING
If you swipe your hand along the wall and notice a trail left behind, something is definitely not right. Warped walls are often a sign that the wall is absorbing water and is swelling. Over time, damaged areas start to crumble, particularly around the baseboards. So, if you touch it and it’s bulging or feels different, the best thing to do is call a professional for help!
A broken shingle is a potential leak. But if you have multiple damaged shingles, it means that your roof is no longer protecting the structure of your house. It’s a good idea to replace the shingles that are no longer functional to prevent water from leaking into the house and damaging the structure for a longer time.
