Minor roof leaks are no big deal, right? That depends. Many homeowners think that small leaks are the kind of home repair that can just keep getting put off, the sort of thing that they’ll take care of “one of these days.” That’s a risky approach, though, because the longer you wait to have your roof repaired, the bigger the problem is going to be.
It’s rare that a roof leak is a one-time problem. Once you’ve seen any sign of water penetration, you need to find the source and fix it. Otherwise the leak—and the damage—is likely to be ongoing.
In many cases, you can see the tell-tale signs of a roof leak from inside the home. Water spots, often appearing brown or gray in color, on the ceiling are frequently your first red flag. Even very small water stains need to be investigated. That’s because water can promote mold growth, encourage wood rot, weaken materials like drywall, and generally make a mess in your home. If you don’t address your roof leak right away, you’re likely to have more water inside, leading to more problems and a bigger mess. You might be surprised by just how big a problem that little leak turns out to be in the end!
