The Dangers of a Leaky Roofing System

Leaks are arguably the most troublesome problems you'll encounter with your roof. The risk actually stems from how deceptive they are; small leaks are difficult to spot and can quickly grow.

Dangers of a Leaky Roofing System | Westside Roofing

Today, West Side Roofing Co. discusses the dangers of leaky roofing and how to address them properly.

Small Leaks Need Immediate Repair

As previously highlighted, a small leak can rapidly grown in size due to a combination of heat and existing moisture damage. It's even riskier if the leak is somewhere that you can't see on the surface level, such as when it's located in the inner part of the roofing structure.

It might seem like a waste spending money repairing a leak of insignificant size, but the cost of repairing a bigger leak is often triple that of preventive repair. Letting the leak grow in size encourages moisture to damage the structure of the roof. Our roofing contractors are skilled in identifying leaks and problem areas and addressing them before they become a bigger and more expensive problem.

Leaks Encourage Mold Build-Up

One of the more dangerous side effects of leaks is that it encourages mold build-up in your roofing. Mold can quickly travel from the roof to the other parts of your home. The biggest danger is if it manages to find its way into your HVAC system, where it will eventually spread even further throughout your home.

Leaks are a Fire Hazard

Leaks are also a fire hazard in their own right. If your electric wiring is present in your attic space, the leak can easily find its way to the wiring, causing it to short and might even start a fire. This is why we always recommend homeowners take advantage of our roofing inspection services to prevent these risks from happening.
