Water in a Building Isn’t Always From a Roof Leak

Updated: May 16, 2023

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

  • HVAC equipment

  • Seals around windows and wall openings

  • Foundation leaks

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.
