Central Kentucky Roof & Attic Water Damage Repair Services
The roof of your home is one of the most important parts of the structure that needs to be maintained. If the roof is neglected it can lead to a number of problems that will be costly to fix. Once a roof begins to leak there is nothing to stop water from entering into the attic. The water will continue to come as long as the entry point remains open.
What Can Cause a Roof to Leak
Leaks can start anywhere on the roof of a home. They can be at the edge of the roof or even at the peak of the roof. All that it takes is a shingle to be cracked or the tar paper under the shingles to be torn for the water to find its way into the attic. Time is the obvious element that can cause a leak to start, but there are other things that can expedite the problem. A large branch can fall onto the roof from a passing storm. Hail can fall and crack the shingles letting water run freely into the home. Even wind blowing in the right direction in combination with rain can go right through the roof.
