Warning Signs That You Might Have A Roof Leak

Your home’s roof plays an important role in protecting you and your belongings from the elements. However, even a well-maintained roof can develop leaks overtime. Detecting a roof leak early is essential to preventing major damage to your home. Here are a few signs that your roof may have a leak:

Water Stains on Ceilings and Walls
One of the most obvious signs of a roof leak is the appearance of water stains on your ceilings or walls. These stains are often brownish or yellowish and can vary in size. 

Mold or Mildew Growth
Persistent moisture from a roof leak can create an environment for mold or mildew to grow. If you find musty odors or notice mold growth on your walls or ceiling, it is a clear indicator that there may be a leak in your roof.

Sagging, Bubbling, or Peeling Paint
Water that seeps through your roof can cause the paint on your walls or ceiling to sag, bubble, or peel. This occurs when water infiltrates the material, compromising its structural integrity.

Damaged Shingles or Roofing Materials
Visually inspecting your roof for damaged or missing shingles is a crucial part of routine maintenance. If you find cracked, curled, or dislodged shingles, it’s a sign that your roof may be vulnerable to leaks.
