Water Damage and Hail Damage Cause Roof Leaks

Water damage from slow roof leaks can lead to significant costs for repairs or roof replacement. Especially at this time of year, when storms and heavy rains are pelting Kansas City, the chances of sustaining hail damage increase and even the smallest leak in the roof can cause water damage.AAS-Restoration-Roofing-water-Damage-Hail-Damage-leaking-roof

It can be hard to imagine how a small drop of water can do any real harm to your roof, right? But when it’s thousands of water drops that fall during a storm with high winds and hail, it becomes something to be concerned about. When your roof has been damaged, water can easily penetrate all the porous roofing materials and result in severe structural damage and mold growth – long before you even become aware of the problem.

Importantly, a leaky roof is not just a structural problem – which is serious in and of itself – but it also poses safety and health risks, as well. When your roof sustains water damage, the water slowly but steadily works down from the attic to the foundation, compromising the structural integrity of your home. It also creates a serious fire hazard from shorted electrical wiring and the possibility of mold growth, which can be a serious threat to your family’s health.

Roof Damage can lead to water damage.

The most common signs of roof damage include:

  • Broken or missing shingles
  • Dimpled shingles
  • Chipped or broken roofing tiles
  • Damaged flashing
  • Damaged skylights
  • Clogged gutters
  • Water Damage

What To Look For

Potential problems must be identified as soon as they appear, otherwise, minor leaks may go unnoticed. Here are some of the most common signs of water damage:

  • Water spots on interior ceilings and walls
  • Cracked or bubbled plaster
  • Crumbling drywall
  • Wood decay in the attic
  • Stained soffits and fascia
  • Granules collecting in eave troughs
  • Curling or cupping shingles
  • Musty odor in the attic
  • Mold on attic insulation

Even with these telltale signs, locating the source of a leak can be difficult. As water travels along roofing panels and timber in the attic it drips onto the insulation and leaves visible evidence. If you can’t find the leak, have your roof professionally inspected.
