Leaks are common with damaged roofs and while many are large and easy to spot, it can tough to locate smaller leaks to someone who isn’t used to looking for them. There are a lot of things that can cause leaks, high winds can lift up roof material allowing moisture to seep in, animals can wreak havoc on vulnerable spots in a roof, plus many other weather related things.
What you don’t want to happen is have items damaged in your home or in your attic, that can be the start of what could become a worst case scenario. Once too much moisture is allowed to work its way in to your home it can wreak havoc and lead to bigger problems.
If the protective layer on the underside of your roof became damaged from a leak there is possibility that a large of your whole roofing system would need to be replaced. Moisture also causes warping of wood which in turn could create real problems for you and your roofing structure. There is also the possibility of mold and other fungi sprouting up presenting a potential health hazard to your family.
Attics just in general are mold breeding grounds due to the nature of an attic. If mold goes unnoticed and untreated it can be a great damage to your home. A serious mold problem will cost a homeowner a lot of money and stress to deal with not to mention the potential health hazard. Fixing a leak quickly is so important in avoiding these slippery slopes that you will go down if you do not take care of it sooner rather than later.
