Signs That Your Home Has A Roof Leak

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , , .

When it comes to the kinds of damages your home can suffer, water damage is among the worst of them! It can wreak havoc on your home and make your life all the more stressful while being expensive to remediate. Roof leaks can be a serious problem if they aren’t addressed quickly – the longer you wait, the more expensive it will become! It’s important to know the most telling signs of a roof leak so you can act on a whim if needed. We go over some of the most common signs of having a roof leak in your home below!

Water Stains On Walls

Take a look at the paint job on your home’s walls and ceilings. Do you notice any spots that are discolored? What if you notice any yellow or brown spots in areas where that isn’t the color of the paint? If you notice either of these signs, it’s a good indication that your home has a roof leak! Roof leaks will make themselves apparent in your walls and ceilings, as these are the spots where water is most likely to pool. Usually, you can find these spots in the center of a given room, but check the corners too – they could be hiding a bad secret!

Increased Mold Growth

In areas that are damp with no signs of drying, you’ll see another pesky problem that you’ll want to deal with quickly – mold growth! It isn’t enough to get rid of the mold you have growing in your home. You should also be trying to figure out why it’s growing. The place where it springs up can tell you a lot about underlying issues. If you spot mold growth on an exterior wall of your home, it’s a likely sign of a roof leak! A professional that remediates mold should point you to exactly where the leak is coming from.

Dripping Water

The next time that you’re alone in your home on a quiet day, take some time to listen. You shouldn’t be hearing anything other than the whirr of your household appliances or AC units. If you hear anything that sounds like dripping water, it’s not a good sign! If you do hear the sound of dripping water, take some time to pinpoint exactly where it’s coming from. It likely won’t be from an area you can see but within the walls of your home. Regardless of where it is, you should immediately contact a professional if you notice it.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
