4 Common Areas Where Roof Leaks Develop

Your roof will sustain damage over time, resulting in leaks. When left neglected, this may turn into a more serious problem that may compromise your home's structural integrity. It's important to maintain your roof's top condition to safeguard your overall home for years to come. This will also spare you from costly repairs or early replacements. West Side Roofing, the roofing expert, shares four areas where leaks usually develop:

4 Common Areas Where Roof Leaks Develop

  1. Shingles. Missing, curling, cracking, and discolored shingles can put your roof's underlayment and sheathing at risk. Meanwhile, granule buildup in the gutters indicates that the shingles are already losing their efficiency. When you detect any of these issues, make sure to address them immediately to avoid major leaks to occur.
  2. Gutters. These are designed to gather water pouring off your roofing system, channel it to the downspouts, and drain it away from your premises. Because of their open nature, however, they easily accumulate leaves, twigs, dirt, and other debris. This congestion can cause water to back up and seep through your roof, which results in premature wear. It's essential to clean your gutters at least twice a year to keep them efficient all year round. We also suggest installing a gutter protection system to keep your gutters clog-free through the seasons.
  3. Flashing. This is the thin strip of metal that seals and protects the joints of your roof from water infiltration. You can find this around pipes, chimneys, and dormers. If it has started to corrode or come loose, it can provide entry for leaks.
  4. Soffit and Fascia. The soffit is the surface underneath the overhanging section of roof eaves. Meanwhile, the fascia is vertical finishing edge connected to the area where the gutter is attached to the roof. These components are constantly exposed to the elements, which can eventually deteriorate them. When they start to show signs of rot or excessive moisture, count on us to remove and replace them promptly.
