What Happens When Your Roof Leaks
Water can get through any crack in a shingle and will continue to wear away at the surfaces, finding the point of least resistance. Once it gets under the roof shingles, it can interact with the roofing felt or ice and water guard. These materials are installed to provide an extra layer of protection overtop of the structural plywood.
If the plywood becomes exposed to water, it will absorb the water, reducing the integrity of the wood, and eventually can rot or give way and fall down. Beneath the plywood is the interior of your home with drywall, flooring, etc. Over time the drywall will wear down and the water leak will cause a hole to form. Water will directly pour into your home if these issues are not addressed and can cause further internal damage.
POTENTIAL HOME DAMAGES
Water can quickly damage several areas of your home such as Drywall, furniture, and flooring. Water damage to wood and cause rotting or mold within your wall without much evidence from the drywall.
Water travels with gravity to the least path of resistance, and it will make its way towards your home’s foundation. Foundations are designed to keep water from entering in, once water is inside it creates the perfect area to store the water. Foundation damage can be catastrophic to a home, potentially causing a basement wall to cave in or worse. Repairs can easily cost 5-figures.
Getting your roof repaired as soon as you notice the leak will cost you significantly less, the faster it is fixed. It is important to get your roof inspected as soon as possible by someone qualified like Roofers On Demand.
Why Is My Roof Leaking?
Several factors have to be considered when determining why your roof is leaking. From the age of your roofing system to the installation techniques used by the roofers that installed it. On average most homes roofing systems need maintenance at the 8-10 year mark, If no maintenance is performed your 35% more likely to have some type of roofing issue. Some of the main areas that cause roof leaks in Pittsburgh are:
Chimney Flashing: The flashing around the chimney cracks/tears from weather or improper installation, creating a gap and allowing a path from water to travel.
Step Flashing: The sealant placed around the flashing fails or cracks allowing a undisturbed path for water to travel and enter your property.
Nail Pops: Nails from your roofing material "pop up" creaking a small mountain under your shingles and breaking your shingles seal. Once the seal is broken, water is able to reach your roofing systems underlayment and finally entering your homes interior.
Skylight Flashing: Skylights have flashing kits installed around them at the time of installation, once weathering has taken place it creates gaps that allow water to enter your home.
Pipe Boots: Ventilation pipes have "pipe boots" installed around them, over time they tend to fail from improper installation or no maintenance. Once they have failed they create an area for water to travel freely and enter your homes interior.
