It’s a dreary day in Atlanta today, with rain on and off for most of the day. Many people wonder if their roof is leaking on days like this, even if there is no apparent interior damage. Roof leaks may become apparent right away, or in a few days, as the water penetrates the walls and ceilings of a home. Sometimes they may never make it into the house, causing rot and damage to the roof decking. You should make it a habit to check your attic on a routine basis to inspect the roof decking for any visible rot or damage which may indicate a slow, but damaging leak. Maybe when you change the batteries in your smoke detector, or when you change the filter on your furnace. Checking regularly can prevent a small leak from becoming something worse, and save you money on repairs! If you notice something that concerns you, give Dr. Roof a call for your free estimate.
