Tips: Easy Ways to Spot Roof Leaks

Drip, drip, drip! You've heard and seen the evidence that your roof has a leak, so what do you do? If your roof is leaking, the first step towards solving the problem is discovering the source of the leak. Follow these quick tips for locating the source of a leaky roof, then give your Cleveland area roofers a call:
  1. Let nature be your guide: Sometimes, the easiest way to locate a leak is to wait for a rainy day, then inspect your ceilings and attic for damage. Another quick trick is to use a garden hose to spray the potential sources of the roofs leak.

  2. Check the connections: Areas that connect to your roof, such as skylights and chimneys are particularly vulnerable areas for leaks to appear. Improperly installed sealants or flashing could be the culprit.

  3. Design flaws: Your roof may be more prone to leaks depending on its design. Roofs with a low slope and flat areas are more likely to cause water to pool under the shingles. Melting snow and ice during the winter months can also cause damage to shingles.

Chimney Flashing Leaks
The most common cause of roof leaks in Cleveland is damaged or improperly installed chimney flashing. Flashing is a 6 to 8 inch metal strip which seals the joints between the chimney and the rest of the roof. If this flashing is damaged or even missing, your roof is likely to leak.

Common Causes of Chimney Flashing Leaks:
  • Temperature changes throughout the year can put pressure on chimney flashing, pulling the material away from the joint.
  • Improperly patched-flashing: an older method of flashing repair involves patching the area with an asphalt-based compound. This is only a temporary fix, as weather can cause the compound to crack or break down. This can open up old leaks and even cause new leaks to form.
  • A chimney's weakest points are located on its top and sides because these areas have the most exposure from sunlight and inclement weather.
  • Cracks can occur within the chimney structure itself. While the mortar between bricks is meant to ease pressure between bricks and other building materials, time and extreme temperatures can cause a breakdown of the mortar joints.
