5 Signs Your Gilbert Roof Has a Leak

5 Signs Your Gilbert Roof Has a LeakThe roof of your Gilbert home is the first way that harsh elements are kept out of the home. If the roof begins to leak, it can harm the substructure of the roof and even compromise the safety of the walls and even the foundation of the home.

Making sure that the roof is sound and kept in good repair is important to not only protect the people and items in the home, but also to protect the equity that has been invested in the home.

#1. Algae

One of the first ways in which you can tell that moisture is violating the protection of the roof is algae. When algae begins to grow on or under the shingles of the roof, that is a sign that water and moisture have gotten under the roof shingles. This is a sign that at least in that particular area, the roof needs to be maintained and changed.

#2. Curling Shingles

Another way to tell on sight that the shingle roof needs to be repaired is if the shingles on the roof are beginning to curl. This is a sign that moisture has gotten under the shingles. If the shingles are curling they are unable to do their job in keeping the elements and moisture from getting into the walls and the home.

#3. Water Stains

Water stains are present when water has gotten on the surface of walls and ceilings. If you are seeing water stains on ceilings or walls, then you will want to have a professional come and look at your roof. Any breaks in your tile roofing or shingles, gaps or cracks can cause the water to get into the home and stain the ceilings and walls. If it is determined that the water stains are because of a leak in the roof, be sure to have it fixed right away by a Gilbert roofing contractor.

#4. Mold and Mildew

Look in the attic. If there are places where mold and mildew are forming, then you probably have a leak in the roof. Again, it is best to have a professional come and look at the problem to make sure that it is the roof that needs to be repaired and not some other problem or issue.

#5. Check Attic Insulation

If the insulation in your attic appears to be worn or weathered, you probably have holes in your roof. These holes not only let air and moisture in, they also let heat out. Making sure that the roof is repaired in a timely manner will assure lower heating and cooling bills.
