During the fall, when there are a lot of storms and the weather is typically rainy, it’s quite common for the leaks in your roof to start showing themselves. Whether they were caused by parasites or by summer hailstorms, you can be sure that the fall season will reveal them. But how do you reveal their exact whereabouts, so you can deal with them and have your roof fixed once and for all?
Damaged flashing and shingles are a sure sign that that’s where the leak originated. However, if there are multiple leaks, you’ll have to trace them from your attic or even from your interior walls inside your rooms or kitchen area. This might be a more difficult prospect that would require you to ask for help from a local Fremont roofing repair contractor.
It’s also not uncommon to experience leaks even a day or so after the rain has stopped. A clogged or damaged gutter area can also be one of the culprits. If your gutter system is clogged, chances are that rainwater is able to build up in certain parts of your roof as well, as it won’t flow down as easily. If there is a crack or a damaged part of the flashing in that area, then you might experience constant leaking even when there’s no storm.
