A small leak can cause the roof sheathing and rafters of your home to rot.
If you have water stains that extend across ceilings or run down walls, the cause is probably a roof leak.
Minor leaks can cause major damage.
Minor leaks can cause major damage. If you have a roof leak, you’d better fix it immediately, even if it doesn’t bother you much or you’re getting a new roof next year. Even over a short time, small leaks can lead to big problems, such as mold, rotted framing, and sheathing destroyed insulation and damaged ceilings. If the homeowner dealt with it right away, the damage and subsequent repairs would have been minimal.
