Even a small roof leak can cause noticeable damage to your home if it is left untreated. Fortunately, understanding roof leaks will go a long way to prevent them from occurring. Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc., one of the top roofing companies in our area, talks about five common causes of roof leaks and explains what you should do about them:

Lack of a Leak Barrier

A dynamic and complex roof line looks fantastic. However, this kind of roof design can be prone to leaks if the roof’s valleys and slopes are not properly sealed. A leak barrier is thus added to keep water flowing off the roof.

Clogged Gutters

As a roof repair expert, Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc. strongly recommends keeping your gutters clean, clear and in good condition. Clogged and leaky gutters can cause water damage to several parts of your home, including your roof.

Age

Your roof constantly protects your interior from bad weather. This exposure to the elements will eventually take its toll and damage your shingles. Schedule regular roof inspections to ensure that roof leaks won’t be a problem, even as your roof ages. Your contractor will tell you when your roof is nearing the end of its service life so you can start planning a replacement.

Loose Flashings

The flashings seal the gaps on your roof. They are thin strips of metal installed on the areas surrounding your roof penetrations like your chimney or skylights. To prevent water intrusion, your roofer should check and replace your roof flashings regularly.

Cracked Vent Boot

The vent boot works similarly to flashing. It slides over the plastic vent pipes that protrude from the roof. Vent boots can be made of metal, plastic, rubber or a combination of materials. When the vent boot gets damaged, it needs to be removed and replaced. However, if you want to go to another level, you should work with a local roofer
