Roof Flashing Leaks

There are so many issues that can take occur if your roof is not properly maintained, such as the growth
of mold and structural damage. If you notice any water stains or water dripping from the ceiling, then
there is a good chance that you are dealing with a leak. Repairing leaks as soon as possible can ensure
that your roof remains in good condition. However, it can be tricky to know where the leak is actually
coming from. Here are some of the most common areas where leaks occur.

Shingles and Other Roofing Materials

In some cases, the roofing materials may have become damaged and be allowing moisture to seep into
the home. Damaged shingles may be cracked, buckled, deteriorated, or missing completely. Look for any
signed of granules on the ground. You should also look for nails that have backed out or are missing
altogether. Make sure to look at the areas below overhanging tree limbs, as they may rub against the
roof and wear it out.

Metal Flashing

Flashing is designed to direct water in the opposite direction of the roof seams. You can find metal
flashing around vents, chimneys, and other areas where the roof has an angle or intersection. If the
flashing is not properly installed or sealed, water may seep below and cause damage. So, look for
flashing that may be loose, ripped pieces of flashing, or areas where flashing is missing.

Chimneys and Skylights

Your roof is at more risk of moisture seeping through when you have additional features on it, such as
chimneys and skylights. Both of these features are visually appealing and functional, but if they are not
properly installed, it can be easy for moisture to penetrate the roofing materials around them. A roofing
contractor should inspect the seams to ensure that they are sealed accurately.
