Why Is My Roof Leaking?

It is just after the rains and there are a few patches of moisture along the walls and puddles of water on the floor. The roofing has began to leak. What now? Well, it needs maintenance and possibly some professional assistance. The first thing is to establish the source of the leak and go about the maintenance. The process to identify the source of leak in the home is very simple.

The leaking spot is frequently further up on the roof than the area of the drip unless of course you have roof trusses. With trusses, the maze of lumber can make it tricky to locate. Next time it leaks during a storm, play detective. Take a roll of paper towels, a flashlight and a tape measure up into the attic. Tear off a paper towel and touch it to all the lumber near and above the leaky spot. Even though you may not be able to see the water trickling down a truss member, you will notice a damp spot on the paper. Use this paper towel procedure to track the water leak to its highest possible point inside of the attic. If you are fortunate enough to locate the leaky spot, measure its location from the side and top of the underside of the roof. You will make use of these measurements to find the spot on top of the roof. The next step is to begin with the repair.

With the many existing forms of roofing that a homeowner can put on his roof, why would he shy away from the more traditional forms of roofing in favor of a rubber roof? There are actually several practical reasons for electing to go with a rubber roof on the top of one’s house. Among the only surefire methods of defending low sloping roof sections from leaks which does not require the employment of an open flame or alternatively highly specific equipment on the wooden roof, rubber roofing is both useful and viable. Such rubber roofing is available in big rolls which are simply attached to the roof sub-surface, utilizing an adhesive and not nails. Since no nail holes result from this type of rubber roof installation, there is no place for standing water to enter the roof.
