On any building, a functional roof is critical. Aside from aesthetic value, all roofs have one responsibility: keep the elements out. Left unchecked, leaky or otherwise damaged roof areas can cause serious problems later, making immediate solutions even more important. If your roof is failing on the job, Homewerx’s expert roof leak repair services can help make things right.
Common Leak Causes
While every leak is unique and demands its own specialized plan of attack, there are several common causes:
Age & Long-Term Exposure
One of the most commonly seen reasons for roof leaks is simply long-term exposure to harsh elements. This can be exacerbated in South Carolina, as our hot, humid summers and lengthy hurricane season can present special challenges over time. Worn, sunbaked, and windblown shingles if left alone for years can fail to give your home or business the protection it deserves.
Metal lined areas around chimneys, skylights, and other parts of your roof can become loose, torn, or otherwise faulty. Given that these regions of flashing are connected directly to the rest of your roof, they can serve as an easy entry point for moisture and debris.
This is perhaps one of the most obvious causes of roof leaks. In Charleston, we’ve seen our share of big storms. High winds are more than capable of peeling back shingles—and falling limbs and other objects can do significant damage to a roof structure as well.
