ROOF LEAK REPAIR SERVICES
FOR SUMMERVILLE, GOOSE CREEK, CHARLESTON, SC & THE SURROUNDING AREA
Your roof is the main barrier protecting you from the elements. Unfortunately, no roof is impervious to damage or old age. It’s critical to have a good idea of the state of your roof and possible signs of damage.
South Carolina sees everything from hot, muggy weather and full blown hurricanes to ice and wind storms. The older a roof is, the longer it has been exposed to these elements. Shingles wear out over time, becoming cracked and loose. Even if you have all of the shingles remaining on your home, an old roof still runs high risk of leaks if shingles haven’t been replaced.
Flashing is the metal lining you see around structures such as chimneys and skylights. If this flashing is somehow loose, torn, or faulty, water and moisture have an easy opening.
The frequency of hurricanes, thunderstorms, and other harsh weather conditions drastically increase the likelihood of storm damage. These may result in missing shingles or structural damage, which, coupled with rain, are a recipe for water damage.
SIGNS OF ROOF LEAKS
Roof leaks can take different forms. Some common signs are discolored shingles, walls, or ceilings. This discoloration may appear as tan, yellow, copper, or brown. Other possible signs include a musky odor (which is a common sign of mold), changes to the texture of your walls/ceiling, and standing water.
ISSUES WITH WATER DAMAGE
Any degree of water damage must be taken seriously. This is a problem that will continue to spread and damage more and more areas of your home, racking up expensive repair costs.
Attics and ceilings are the first areas to see damage. Eventually, this spreads to walls, framing, joists, and other key structural components of your home. Left unaddressed, water damage quickly turns into mold damage. Mold not only destroys the structural integrity of your home, it is also unsafe for any inhabitants of the home. If mold is carried through your HVAC system, it can quickly spread to furniture, belongings, and more, becoming a total home problem before you know it.
