Leaks in your roof can be more serious than they seem.
Not only will leaks let water into your home, but they can also cause dry rot. Dry rot can end up costing you thousands of dollars and a lot of time. Being able to find these leaks is the first step to protecting against further damage. So, how can you find roof leaks?
Start checking for leaks in your attic. This is a very effective and safe way to spot leaks. You can find leaks in your roof relatively easily by shining a flashlight at your roof in your attic and looking for holes. You can also find leaks in your attic another way.
Perform a thorough scan of the underside of your roof. On a sunny day, you will be able to spot sunlight coming through holes in your roof. On a rainy day, you can spot water coming through. This simplifies the inspection process and will allow you to make preparations for a repair.
While you can perform these inspections on your own, they should only be preliminary. Call a roofing professional and have them conduct a more thorough investigation. This will allow you to fully understand the scope of the damage which will allow you to make all proper repairs.
