Gutters

Blocked gutters are a big source of leaks. Look for gutters that are clogged with leaves, shingle granules, branches and other debris that can block drainage and can cause severe damage to the roof, walls and gutters.​

Shingles

An inspection will uncover any shingle tabs that have come loose or have broken, curled, or warped. Another possibility is a branch could’ve fallen on the roof and caused damage. Simple repairs will help avoid costly water issues.​

Vents

Neoprene or rubber can crack with age, while critters can cause damage to any vented area on the roof. Resealing will fix these vent problems and help keep animals and water out.​

Flashings

Chimneys have three potential issues: flashing, siding and the cap that can contribute to leaks. An inspection will ensure the area is properly flashed and sealed. Flashing on skylights can easily get water trapped behind them as well.​

Attic

Often the attic that is the source of the problem rather than the roof. Improper ventilation, plumbing, air conditioning, fans, or animal or bug infestation can cause mold, algae, or moisture condensation in the attic space.​
