Causes of Roof Leaks

A leaking roof is a major hassle that can pain homeowners from time to time. Whether it be leaking due to the age of the roof or from a strong storm, it stands that leaks can originate in a variety of ways and require a variety of solutions. If you have a leaky roof or would like to be prepared when one strikes, here are a few reasons why you may have a leaky roof.


Broken and damaged shingles are fairly common causes of roof leaks. Whether due to age of the roof or to storm damage, water can easily find its way through your shingles and into your decking when the shingles are not functioning properly. This can cause severe water damage including dry rot.

Clogged gutters can also cause roof leaks. When water cannot drain off your roof, it gets backed up and your gutters will start to overflow. This means water can splash up under the eaves and can even leak through crevices on your roof.

Poor skylight installation is also a common cause of roof leaks. Usually, the leaks occur because improper measurements were taken before installation occurred, and water is able to seep through the gaps.

Damaged flashing will lead to leaks as well. Flashing seals the roof where the shingles meet walls and other obstacles. If the flashing is damaged, water can pour through these cracks causing severe damage. Make sure to have your roof regularly inspected to make sure everything is in proper working order.
