Check for Leaks
Leaks are known to develop during the winter season due to weather that involves both rain and snow. If there are areas where holes or cracks have developed on the roof, it will quickly lead to stains on the ceilings and a leaky roof. If the leak is neglected, it can cause mold to develop in the home, which can threaten the health of residents on the property.
To check for leaks, it’s important to access the roof with a flashlight and look for moisture that may be present near the roof boards. The roof can also be hosed off to allow water in to make it easier to find leaks. A professional roofer should then be contacted to ensure that the leaks are repaired by removing the shingles or tiles and sealing the deck off from environmental elements.
