Six Signs Your Roof Is Leaking!
Updated: Mar 2, 2018
#1.) Water spots on your ceiling - your roof has a leak.
#2.) Water spots on exterior - The step flashing where the roof meets a wall is loose.
#3.) The roof is missing shingles - The sealant strip under the shingle may have been damaged.
#4.) Cracking Shingles - The granules have probably worn off, allowing the shingles to become brittle. They probably need to be replaced.
#5.) Your Gutters are Filled with Granules and Wash out the Downspouts - The shingles are deteriorating or reaching the end of their lifespan.
#6.) The Roof Leaks when the Temperature Fluctuates Between Warm and Freezing - You probably have ice dams. Ice dams are caused by freeze-and-thaw cycles that allow ice to build up on the roof and block melting snow from draining off.
