Common Sources of Roof Leaks
While roof damage is often the cause of interior leaks, that’s not always the case. If, after inspecting your roof, you can’t find a cause for a leak, consider the following as possible sources:
Clogged gutters and downspouts are a common source of leaks in both commercial buildings and homes.
Leaking plumbing and drain pipes
Seals around windows and wall openings
It Takes Detective Work
It’s not always easy to track down the source of a leak. Despite the difficulties, it’s always a good idea to find where the leak is coming from when you first detect it. Doing so can prevent expensive damage later on.
