Frequently Asked Roof Repair Questions
What are the Signs of a Roof Leak?
Knowing the signs of a roof leak is an essential part of taking care of your home.
Common warning signs include:
- Water droplets
- Streaks or dark stains on indoor walls and ceilings, especially near chimneys and vents
- Damp spots

How Can I Prevent Roof Leaks?
Keeping a roof in proper condition can help ensure that your home is safe from water damage and other costly problems associated with roof leaks.
Regularly cleaning the surface of your roof can reduce the possibility of long-term debris buildup, which helps prevent shingle damage or water flow obstructions. In addition to regularly maintaining the surface, it is important to check for cracked or missing shingles, as these can be entry points for water.
It can also be beneficial to inspect eavestroughs and downspouts periodically to ensure they are properly connected and oriented in a way that promotes quick water drainage. If you notice something amiss, don’t hesitate to contact our roof leak experts.
