A storm has just rolled through your area, or is about to. High winds and heavy rains are being reported and may pound your neighborhood. During or after the storm, you notice a damp spot forming on your ceiling. Although there was a calmer rain a few days ago, this particular storm has caused a leak to appear in your ceiling. Why now?
Often, customers will contact Dependable Construction to report leaks that have manifested themselves after a storm with wind driven, or driving rains. We hear that an area of the roof or ceiling leaks, but not consistently with every rain.
Rain that has been propelled by wind, often blowing horizontally, can create water intrusion in ways that may not have been possible if wind was not in the equation.
Wind driven rain can make its way past not only shingles, but flashing, chimneys, skylights, siding, windows, walls, corner boards and dormers.
Having a qualified roofer like Dependable Construction to evaluate your roof and provide routine maintenance is the best preventive measure. If your property does sustain damage from wind driven rain, be sure to have the repairs done soon after the damage. The longer storm damage remains without repair, the greater the risk for more extensive damages caused by rotten wood, mold, and water damage.
