As autumn settles in and winter is just a few weeks away, seasonal storms are beginning to hit Bunbury and the South West. The wind and heavy rain that storms bring, can cause damage to the roof of your home. If water makes its way into your roof cavity, it can damage insulation, wiring and wood fixtures.
In some cases, roof damage after a storm may be obvious, however there are other, less obvious, signs of roof damage to look out for. Read on to learn the signs of roof damage after a storm including:
- Water leaking from your roof
- Brown stains on your ceiling
- Your ceiling is sagging
Water leaking from your ceiling
The most obvious sign of damage is water leaking from your ceiling into your home. If you are reaching for a bucket to catch the drips during or after a storm, it’s time to call a professional roofing company. After the storm and rain stops, many homeowners forget about the leak as it no longer occurs. This is not a wise choice. The longer a damage roof is left, the more extensive the damage that can occur.
Brown stains on the ceiling
Brown stains can appear on the ceiling inside your home after storms. These brown patches are in fact wet patches. Why do they occur? It’s almost certain there is damage to your roof and water has made its way into the roof cavity. After a storm, it’s a good idea to check the ceiling of all rooms in your home for stains. It may appear in just one small space and continue to spread if not attended to.
Your ceiling is sagging
If your roof is damaged and not repaired and water is entering your roof cavity, it will continue to accumulate each time it rains. Eventually the weight of this water will cause your ceiling to sag. As water continues to accumulate, the sag will become more prominent and eventually, your roof will cave in. This can be dangerous, disastrous and a huge inconvenience to you and your family.
