If you suspect that your roof has been damaged or are worried about the integrity of your older roof, having a roof inspection done is your best bet. Alternatively, you can proceed by looking for leaks on your own.

In the article Finding Roof Leaks: Three Places to Check for Leaks, the staff at FacilitiesNet provides some useful information that can be used by home and business owners. They recommend checking the three places that leaks are most likely to develop, including:

  • Around flashings and sealants at roof penetrations
  • Along the perimeter and near expansion joints
  • In places where condensation may form due to missing or inadequate insulation or ventilation

The proper maintenance of your roof is vital to the upkeep of your home. Make sure that inspections and repairs are handled by experienced and trustedprofessionals.
