How to Tell if Your Roof Is Leaking

Categories: Roof Maintenance

Roof LeakingA roof is an essential part of any home.  A leaking roof can, of course, be a big problem. At Peak Roofing & Construction we know how to tell if your roof is leaking, and can get it repaired in a timely and professional manner.

You See Water Inside

Seeing water actually drip from the ceiling or having pools of water on the floor can be a sign of a leaking roof. Water leaks can be tricky because the actual hole in the roof may not be right above where the water is dripping inside a house.  Sometimes water enters the roof at one point and runs to another spot before it is visible. Peak Roofing & Construction can pinpoint where water is getting into your home.

Discolored or Puckering Paint

Sometimes you might not actually see water in your home, but the wall or ceiling paint may become discolored and even begin to pucker.  This can be an indication of moisture. A Frisco roofing company can help diagnose the source of any potential roof leaks that are causing water stains or making the paint pucker.

Presence of Mold or Mildew

The presence of mold or mildew in an attic is another sign of how to tell if your roof is leaking. These contaminants may not cause significant damage to a roof but can create serious health problems for the people who live in the house. The elderly, children and people with asthma and compromised immune systems are at the greatest risk if there is mold or mildew in a home.

Damaged Flashing

Flashing is the sealant around any objects that poke through a roof, such as pipes. If flashing is not properly installed or is old and cracked, it can create an access point for water.
