No matter the age of your roof, it is subject to the elements of nature along with other factors. Storms tend to make us think more closely about the condition of our roofs, but damage can occur outside of them. If damages aren’t caught they can cause severe damage.
However, regular roof inspections can help detect issues earlier, but often our first sign of a problem is a visible leak. This can be seen by water staining and wet spots on ceiling, walls, and floors. Once these signs are spotted, it is important to call the experts as soon as possible so that we can identify the source of the problem. Which can range from storm related damages to improper prior installation.
Homeowners mistake leaks as a sign that they need a new roof. Though leaks are often a sign of a failing roof, many times the life of the roof can be extended by performing minor repairs. These repairs should be left to the professionals, because if done improperly it can lead to larger, more expensive issues.

When Is a Roof Leak Repair Necessary?
Any time that the roof is compromised and is vulnerable to water intrusion requires a roof repair. The roof can be compromised by not only heavy downpours but also high winds that often occur during the seasonal hurricane. These winds can lift the shingles or tear them off completely. The high winds can also cause branches to fall from trees and scratch and penetrate the shingles. These damages can also result in costly repairs in the interior of your home as well.
