3 Signs You May Have a Roof Leak that Needs Attention

At RAM Residential Remodeling, we recognize that time is a very precious thing when it comes to your roof. In many cases, the longer a leaky roof is present, the more costly the damage can be. So, at RAM Residential Remodeling, we’ve got your back! Here are 3 signs that you may have a roof leak that needs attention!

You See a Drip

Okay, this may sound a little redundant but if it helps you to look out for those warning signs a bit better, then bring on the redundancy. If you see a drip, get your roof checked right away. Sometimes we will have customers that saw a drip a couple of months back but when it went away, so did their concern. Unfortunately, these spots can come back with a vengeance so when you see one, it’s definitely time to investigate it further. Reasons for this can be ice dams or other vulnerable areas on your roof that cause intermittent leaks which ultimately lead to chronic moisture problems and major damage.

Water Stains

Perhaps you missed the big drip but you notice a nice water stain on the ceiling. These can resemble a dried puddle on the ceiling that often shows a nice water ring around the areas. When spots like these happen on the walls or the ceiling, it’s time to get your roof checked. Additionally, checking the area for mold and moisture never hurts.

Is Your Roof Intact?

It’s no secret that if a part of your roof is missing shingles, it becomes vulnerable and susceptible to leaks in that spot. If you are noticing missing shingles on your roof or you happen to see shingle debris in your downspouts, perhaps you need to get it checked! There could be a small leak that could quickly get worse if not repaired in a timely manner.

At RAM Residential Remodeling, we believe that quality roofing repairs can save you both time and money. The best way to keep money in your wallet and time on your hands is to know what signs to look for in the first place. Checking for leaks, especially after a storm, is an important component of home maintenance. If you are still unsure of the integrity of your roof, give our roofing experts a call today.
