As beautiful, relaxing and soothing as the rainy season can be, especially when you’re home, reverse could be the case if your roof leaks.

As beautiful, relaxing and soothing as the rainy season can be, especially when you’re home, reverse could be the case if your roof leaks. This is why you should fix the leaking roof (s) before the downpour becomes unstoppable.

How To Detect A Leaking Roof

• Stains or spots on your interior ceilings – Appearance of discoloured water stains on your ceilings or walls may mean you have a leaky roof.

• Exterior wall growths – Check your exterior walls for appearance of excess mold, fungi, or moss. These common growths flourish in wetness, which could be caused by a leaky roof that allows water to penetrate the walls.

• Wet or Rusty Pipes – These are common signs of roof leakage you want to fix immediately.

• Drips – This happens during downpour, which is why you need to check for early signs before the downpour.
  
It is imperative to call a professional to help check, assess and fix your roof if it’s leaking to avoid being destroyed when it rains.
