What to Do When You have a Roof Leak

roof leak repairIf you see a little water dripping down the wall, that’s one thing. However, if you have an active, serious leak, the only thing you can do is damage control. The most important thing is to prevent further damage. If the leak seems minor, or only happens during the winter, call a roofer anyway. You might have ice dams or an unseen leak.

When water is not yet leaking, but you seen a stain or bulge in the ceiling, take action immediately. Get a bucket or trashcan to contain the leak and move away any furniture, rugs, etc. that could get damaged. If you can, throw a tarp over your wood or carpeted floors just in case. Then take a screwdriver and poke a hole in the middle of the bulge. This may seem counterproductive, but it will actually help release the water instead of letting it build up to a more serious problem.

Locating a roof leak can be very difficult, as water can travel quite far from the source. Check your attic for any signs of wet insulation, mild, or wood rot. If there’s ice and snow on your roof, check for ice dams in your gutters. These walls of ice can hold melting snow against your roof, which can get under your shingles and cause extensive damage.
