Usually, people neglect the repairs and maintenance operation they need to perform regularly on the most important part of the building - the roof! For first time home owners, we've prepared some useful information about the importance of fixing the roof and keeping it in good shape.
A water leak is a major problem, no matter how seemingly insignificant it looks like, because not only it infiltrates and sometimes wets the ceiling but it may also affect the entire structure of the house. So, repairing small problems identified during the periodic inspection must be a constant priority, because the roof protects the entire house.
How do you identify a roof leak? How do you deal with it? These questions need answers, especially for first time homeowners who must learn what to do each time they face such a problem.
Investigating the leak:
· Examine the roof on the outside and the inside, look for broken materials, moisture and discolorations
· Cracked or peeling paint is another sign that indicates the existence of a roof leak
· Check the areas around ventilation holes, pipes, chimneys
· Make sure there are no missing or curled tiles
For repairs, always contact local licensed Centennial roofing companies.
