Some signs of a roof leak may be obvious, but some are downright hard to spot. However, if you’ve noticed the signs, it’s time start inspecting the area for its exact location.
How To Properly Locate a Damaging Roof Leak
When you know the signs of a roof leak, you may think it’s easy to point at your roof and say, “Oh, there’s the sign, the leak must be right there!” Right? Wrong! A roof leak is much more complicated than that, and our roofers can help you locate it in no time.
- Check for damage on your roof and in your attic after a storm.
After a storm passes through Charlotte, it’s time to get your hands dirty or your feet. Walk outside onto your soggy lawn and take a look up at your roof. Do you notice any missing shingles? If you can’t spot any, look down at the lawn. Do you notice any of the roof’s shingles laying in your yard? No? It’s time to climb up on a ladder and check the gutters for granules. If you have granules in your gutters, it’s time to give our roofers a call. Why? Missing shingles and granules in gutters are both signs your roof has a leak; and, the leak might be a little more tricky to find if it’s just the granules that are wreaking havoc.
- Check the attic for puddles and water spots.
It’s time to check the attic after a grueling storm. You’ll want to look up, down and all around for any puddles of water, drips and water sports on the ceilings or rafters. If you notice water marks or puddles, congratulations! You’ve properly found the leak! Now, it’s time to give your roofers at Ace Roofing a call to take care of the leak for you.
- Inspect the ceiling and walls.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but not every homeowner thinks to look in plain sight. Take a walk around your entire home. Look at the walls, ceilings and put emphasis on where the ceilings and walls meet. If you have any brown or yellow stains on the ceilings or walls, you’ve found a sign of a roof leak. The next step can be a little tricky; finding exactly where the roof leak is located.
