As a professional, we feel it is our responsibility to inform our clients about the ways they can protect their property from potential roof problems. To help you avoid an extra expense, here are common reasons roofs start to leak.

  • Cracked Flashings

Flashings are metal sheets installed beneath the shingles and joints of your roof to produce a barrier from the rain. Often time’s roofers will seal flashings with tar that quickly corrodes. Rough wind and rain can also damage flashings, resulting in a potential leak.

  • Broken Shingles

When strong wind and rain wreak havoc on your building, the exterior shingles on your roof are usually the first thing to become damaged. A leaking roof can occur when shingles become broken and or fall off your roof altogether.

  • Unsealed Valleys

A valley is where two panels of your roof join together and create a slope. When this slope or valley is not sealed appropriately, this could cause rain to leak through your ceiling which would cause water damage and wet spots in your ceilings. Cracks and a surplus of rain are the reasons for your valley to leak.

  • Cracked Vent Booting

Roof vents correctly dismiss moisture from your building, but when these pipes become broken, they can cause leaks in your roof. Our commercial roof maintenance in Orlando, FL checks for cracked roof vents to help avoid this problem.

  • Clogged Gutters

Gutters are ideal for capturing excess leaves and allowing water to flow away from your roof.  When your gutters become too clogged, they could stop the flow of water which would cause water to sit in your gutters, allowing the excess water to fall into cracks, causing a leak.
