Dripping ceilings are an obvious sign of a leaky roof. But even if you don’t experience drops of water falling on your head indoors every time it rains, this does not mean that your roof is free of leaks. Most roof leaks are in fact small, and without routine inspections and a vigilant eye, they may go unnoticed until they have caused extensive water damage. Water stains around skylights, bulging paint, or discolorations on ceilings can be signs of roof leaks. Watch this video to learn what other signs may point to a roof leak.

Although properly constructed roofs will last for decades despite having leaks, long-term damage from a leaky roof can cause thousands of dollars or more in property damage. To prevent costly damage, contact a roofing contractor in Fort Lauderdale at the first sign of a leak. The dangers of a leaky roof include:
Mold and Mildew
In places where leaking water becomes trapped in confined spaces, the humidity won’t dissipate and mold or mildew growth may occur. Mold and mildew inside your attic or between the walls can cause health effects ranging from minor skin and eye irritation to respiratory distress and even neurological damage.
Some of the most expensive and dangerous long-term damage caused by a leaky roof occurs to the actual wooden structure of the home. Beams, studs, joists, and other structural pieces of wooden frame will eventually begin to rot from constant exposure to water. The only way to prevent wood rot is to have your roofing contractor fix the leak and repair the structural damage.
In addition to wood, long-term leaking can also cause damage to drywall. This building material is made of a plaster-type substance that loses cohesion when exposed to water. Once drywall becomes saturated with water, the structure of the drywall expands and deteriorates until it eventually crumbles into pieces. For drywall ceilings, this means entire sections of drywall might collapse and fall directly onto whomever or whatever is underneath.

Fort Lauderdale might not be a winter wonderland, but that doesn’t mean your roof is in the clear this winter. Sure, you don’t have to worry about snow and ice, but torrential rain and strong wind can cause even more roof damage than you’d experience if you lived in a colder part of the United States. The good news is that a little bit of roof maintenance is typically all it takes to keep your roof in tip-top shape all winter long.
Trim Back Vegetation
Winter storms can bring heavy rain and hurricane-force winds. If you have overgrown trees, these violent storms can break off limbs and branches and send them flying into your roof. Even if the debris doesn’t penetrate your roof and cause a leak, it could clog or cause damage to your gutters.
Speaking of gutters, winter roof maintenance should definitely include a thorough cleaning and inspection of the gutters and downspouts around your home. Clogged or broken gutters can cause water to leak through your roof or pool around your home’s foundation, both of which can result in expensive water damage. If your gutters need to be replaced, contact a roofing contractor in Fort Lauderdale.
As you inspect the gutters and downspouts, be sure to take note of the condition of the flashing around your roof. If any of these metal areas are noticeably warped or have holes in them, have your roofing contractor come out and repair the flashing or install new flashing.
The best way to prevent major roof damage this winter is to have your roof inspected and maintained by a roofing professional. Paul Bange Roofing provides preventative maintenance programs that can help you roof survive this winter and many more to come.
