Attic leaks also known as roof leaks or attic leaks are caused when moisture seeps from the roof and into the attic. It could be due to improper roofing construction by the company that you hire for your roofing project or water damage in your home. There are steps that you can take to prevent a leak from affecting your home’s enjoyment.
Poor roofing construction by the company that you hire for your roofing project is the number one reason for roof leaks. Many roof leaks can be caused by damaged flashing, which allows moisture to escape. It is possible that your roof suffered from this issue at one point. You may need to get more flash installed if your roof seems to be in poor condition.
Lack of maintenance on your roof can also lead to roof leaks. If you live in an area with low winter temperatures and storms, your roof may leak if it isn’t equipped to handle these extreme weather conditions. Winter weather protection is essential. Also, make sure your roof is not left open during a snowfall. To prevent water from pooling inside your attic, ensure that you clean out gutters and downspouts regularly. This will ensure your roof is in good condition and prevent any roof leaks.
