Experiencing a leaking roof is one of the worst nightmares a homeowner may face. Aside from meaning that you are probably in need of the services of roof repair contractors, it may also be a wake-up call for serious structural problems.

How to Trace a Roof Leak to the Source

Leaks are not just bothersome. They are serious problems that need immediate attention. Lankford Roofing & Construction LLC can help you determine the source of the water leaks and what you need to do to stop them.

Go to Your Home’s Highest Point

Even if there’s visible damage on the lower portion of your home, roofing contractors suggest heading to your home’s highest point – the attic – to find out the extent of the leak. By doing this, you can more easily identify the source of water intrusion and do an immediate fix.

Wait for a Rain Storm or Simulate One

The most convenient time to track a leak’s source is when it’s raining. If water is continuously coming in, you can easily find the origin point of the leak. However, if you are seeing wet spots, but you are not sure when the next rain will happen, you can enlist a helper and simulate rain with a water hose.
