What are signs of a roof leak?
“Rain seemed to come out of nowhere” was one comment from an Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta attendee. Fortunately Balloon Fiesta officials sprang into action, providing shelter for thousands of visitors. The red flag went up signaling the balloons would stay grounded on four out the eight sessions of this year’s 50th anniversary event. The torrential rain was a result from the recent hurricane in Florida affecting weather all the way into New Mexico. The weather outlook published by NOAA showed New Mexico as the only state to have excessive rain that could lead to flooding during October 2022. With such rapidly changing weather, home owners would be wise to keep on the lookout for signs of water damage, specifically roof leaks.
Roof leaks are a serious matter that calls for quick action. The difficult first step is to find the origin of the leak. Leaks have a sneaky way of entering your home at one part of your roof and trickling down to another area until the leak finally becomes visible on ceilings or walls. Leaks are relentless and can eventually find their way into the depths of the foundation of your home. Disaster Safety advises to be aware that roofing leaks can lead to hazardous consequences such as fire hazards, slip and fall hazards, compromised structural integrity, interior mold and mildew issues and higher utility bills. Below are common signs of water damaged roofs:
Peeling wall paper Raised roofing nails
Water stains, cracked or bubbled paint on ceiling or walls Water stains/cracks on roof decking (chimneys, vents, pipes, valleys)
Warped or sagging ceiling Discolored roofing deck, rafters, trusses
Water stains around the fireplace Misaligned/broken shingles or flashing
Peeling paint or rotting signs around skylights Clogged gutters
Leaks, mold or moisture inside the attic Ice dam buildup
