roof leakEven small roof leaks can be a problem. If left unattended for long periods, they can lead to mold growth. A small roof leak in an electrical appliance can lead to major damage and cost. It is difficult to spot roof leaks. Even small, persistent problems may not cause a lot of water flow. Instead, they can cause dampness that is not immediately obvious. It can be difficult to identify the source of moisture in situations that have moisture buildup.

How to identify a roof leak

These signs will help you identify a roof leak quickly.

  • Water on the Ceiling – This is the most obvious sign that you have a problem. But don’t assume it is above the ceiling. Water can flow around walls and joists to reach a particular point.
  • Sagging Ceiling – Even if there’s no visible water or damp, a sagging ceiling could indicate a roof leak.
  • Mold or mildew – Roof spaces with high levels of mold and mildew or upper walls that show signs of damp can indicate a persistent leak.
  • Missing tiles and other damage – Even if you don’t see any signs of moisture or dampness, it is possible to have a leak if you look outside for missing tiles, panel damage, or other problems with the roof.

What should you do if you see a leaky roof?

Protect the area if water is accumulating. You should remove any electrical items or other vulnerable items from the area. Use plastic sheets, buckets and whatever else you have to collect and dispose off any dripping water. After you’ve taken the necessary emergency steps, or if there are signs of dampness or other roof leaks, but they don’t pose a problem immediately for your belongings, it is time to consider roof repair.
