The ceiling and attic are some of the most common parts of your home affected by a leaky roof. Water flowing through gaps and cracks on the shingles will get to the ceiling, causing different damages. In the case of wooden ceilings, the water can cause bubbles, darkening, staining, and swells or rots. The rotten surface weakens and eventually falls into the house, causing more damage or physical injuries.
Constant water leaks on your roof will eventually get into your home’s framing. The leak damages the structure, which causes wood to rot or compromises the frame’s integrity with time. Most homeowners use less-treated wood in the interior compared to the exterior. Signs of ceiling spots and drips indicate advanced roof leakage.
Mold and mildew thrive well in dump places. Hence, a leaky roof is susceptible to mold or mildew growth, regardless of how minor. These biological contaminations can spread throughout your home, affecting furniture, clothing, and carpets. Mold and mildew are not only costly to clean, but they’re also notable health hazards, especially in COPD patients.
