Not sure if your home has a leaky roof? Inspecting the area above a water-stained ceiling can be the first place to look for a roof leak. Other spots to check are where water may pool on the roof, such as corners, where the roof joints meet, skylights, valleys, and chimneys. An expert roofer can usually examine these areas and identify roof leaks sooner and more safely with a thorough inspection.
But if your home has a roof leak, steps you can take to prevent further damage while you wait for a roofing contractor to arrive include:
To limit water damage until you identify and repair a roof leak, put a bucket beneath any water intrusion and dripping. Catching the water prevents wet floors and ceilings and limits further damage.
If your home has a roof leak, dripping water isn't the only concern. A severely leaky roof increases the risk of a ceiling collapse. So moving furniture, rugs, personal belongings, and other household items out of the room will limit water damage and harm from falling debris.
If there is access to the attic:Look for signs of water damage or moisture problem, such as dark spots on wood or insulation, mold growth, mildew, foul odors, discolored wood, stained building materials, condensation on air ducts or nails, and damaged insulation. You may also have to be careful about asbestos in insulation. If you're unsure if that's a concern for your attic, ask a professional first.
Can't access the attic or no attic: One call to Klaus Larsen Roofing of Hudson Valley will allow one of our roofers to conduct a roof inspection. We can identify roof leaks and other damage and recommend solutions for you.
