Improper installation of roof valley; where roof slopes meet if installed incorrectly can cause water leakage

Condensation buildup due to poor attic ventilation and insulation

Damaged or missing shingles

Poorly sealed seams on flat or low slope roofs

How to avoid leaky roofs:
Enhance protection with waterproof Barriers

The function of the waterproof barrier is in its name; they add a layer of protection between your roof and shingles. To enhance your roof protection, consider adding layers of waterproof barriers. Waterproof barriers are durable, resistant to tearing, won’t absorb moisture, and reduce structural decay over time.

Optimize attic ventilation

Signs of poor ventilation installation can include cracked asphalt, watermarks in your attic ice damming during winter and roof sagging. When the air in your attic is too warm it condenses, thus causing water damage. Proper ventilation moves heat out of the attic, regulates temperatures and humidity levels.

Install hip and ridge caps

Wonder how wildlife can start their own habitat on your roof? You might have a gap in your hip and ridge. Hip and ridge caps are also known as roof capping. Hip and ridge capping fills the gaps between the shingles on your roof. By installing hip and ridge caps you can prevent wildlife from living on your roof, water leaks and roof sheathing mold.

Inspect the skylight regularly

Water damage to the skylight can cause mold to grow or a buildup of algae. To prevent algae or mold growing in your skylight conduct routine inspections on skylights. You may want to replace your skylights during a roof repair.
