4 Signs Of Roof Water Damage
If a tree falls on your roof during a storm and there’s water pouring into your home, it’s pretty obvious that there’s roof damage. What homeowners don’t realize is that more often roofs will sustain damage quietly without you even noticing. Whether it’s missing shingles, water spots on your ceiling, or condensation on your windows, there can be multiple signs of roof damage that can be hard to notice. That’s why our team here at Carolina Custom Contractors is here to tell you four signs of water damage to your roof.
Discoloration On Your Ceiling
While many homeowners may notice a little discoloration on their ceiling, they may think nothing of it. That’s the worst thing you can do. Those spots on your ceiling are water spots, which means there’s a leak somewhere. Neglecting to make the necessary repairs can end up costing you more in the long run.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
Excessive rain and strong winds can lift shingles and cause them to curl and deteriorate faster than expected. Making the mistake of ignoring missing or damaged shingles can cause your roof to be exposed to elements it’s not supposed to be exposed to and can cause further roof damage which will end up costing you more.
This is a clear sign that you have water damage. Moisture build up can cause mold in as little as 48 hours and mold can end up causing serious health issues if left untreated. If you notice mold on your ceiling or walls, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can make the necessary repairs.
Swollen Walls/Bulging Ceiling
When there’s moisture buildup in your ceiling or walls, you may start to notice bubble-like bulges that contain water build up. If you see these start to appear in your home, they should be dealt with immediately!
Overall, water damage is a serious issue when it comes to your roof and needs to be taken care of as soon as possible to eliminate the chances of further damage.
