Visible Water Staining
Leaks can first show up on your interior walls or ceilings, and they will form visible puddles over time. Often times, these buildups of water will leave a stain that appears to be a light beige, brown or yellow color. They can occur on your ceiling, around crown molding or in any corner of a room. Look for discoloration or the appearance of mold on paint, as these can be dead giveaways of a hidden leak.
If you notice a once smooth exterior wall has now developed a hump, there could be a leak in your roof. On the outside of the home, bubbles can form along your walls due to breaks in a gutter or erosion on the edges of your roof. Water will begin hitting your walls directly, causing damage to their integrity. This can also encourage the growth of mold on the outside of your home, which is of course extremely unsightly and a potential health hazard.
Missing Shingles and Asphalt
One telltale sign that your roof is about ready to spring a leak is the loss of materials. Gravel and asphalt washing down your gutters or falling onto the floor is a sign that your roof’s integrity is not what it once was. Asphalt is important because it acts as an additional barrier and cement between the shingles and the under layers of a roof. The absence of entire shingles leaves parts exposed to the elements and can further the loss of materials during intense bouts of wind or rain. Have you noticed debris falling from your roof? Springtree Restoration’s expert team offers free roof inspections and consultations to precisely diagnose what your roof is in need of in order to service it accordingly.
