How Do You Locate a Leak in Your Roof? 

When you begin to feel those telltale water drops on your head, you will likely want to rush in and find the leaky spot right away. The problem is that leaks are not usually that easy to discover since water naturally tends to move along a path of least resistance. In other words, leaking rainwater may move for an extensive time before it finally comes to settle in one spot. This is why only a professional can accurately detect leaks.

Why Is My Newly Shingled Roof Leaking?

Your roof could be leaking because the previous company did not install the shingles properly, or perhaps there was already a pre-existing layer that did not receive the right level of coverage. An expert inspection is the best approach to finding out what is wrong.

What Is Roofing Underlayment?

Every roof with shingles also has a special roofing underlayment that goes beneath this main layer. Even though the underlayment is composed of felt paper, this protective covering above your roof’s wood is extremely effective at its job of preventing rain from collecting beneath the shingles.

What Causes a Roof to Finally Wear Out?

There are multiple factors that could cause your hard-working roof to lose its efficiency and strength. 

The most common influences that negatively impact your roof include:

  • Direct exposure to sunlight
  • Growth of mildew, algae, moss, and mold
  • Harsh winds, rain, and hailstones
  • Impact from falling objects like tree branches and telephone poles

How Long Will Your Roof Last?

It is difficult to predict exactly how long your roof is going to last. A roof’s lifespan is greatly influenced by its materials. Shingle roofs, for example, typically last about 30 years, while metal and clay tile roofs can last for many years longer. The amount of maintenance that your roof receives is a major influence as well. Speak to Storm Roof LLC to learn about more ways of extending your roof’s life.
