Interior water damage from unfixed roof leak

Common Causes of Roof Leaks in Green Bay, WI

Vulnerable spots on your roof can allow water to seep into your home, leading to costly interior damage. Detecting the cause of a roof leak is often challenging as water can find its way in from one spot and travel to another. The most common causes of roof leaks include:

  • Worn out flashing around chimneys and vents
  • Damaged, cracked, or missing shingles
  • Cracked or flooded gutters caused by debris buildup
  • Cracked or loose skylights
  • Storm damage such as punctures or heavy rain


Signs You Have an Early-Stage Roof Leak

Sometimes roof leaks are subtle enough to where you can’t notice the water penetrating your roof. However, even the smallest roof leaks give off warning signs. Some of the most common signs you have an early-stage roof leak include:

  • Water stains on ceilings or walls
  • Noticeable musty or mildew odor inside the home
  • Bulging or warped sections of interior walls or ceilings
  • Discolorated, streaky, or stained siding
  • Paint or wallpaper peeling off walls and ceiling

Ignoring the problem and allowing the leak to worsen can result in mold and mildew damaging the structure of your house. If your home has any signs of an early-stage roof leak, it’s important to act fast before the problem worsens.


What to Do If Your Roof is Actively Leaking

  1. Call a Roof Repair Contractor: Reach out to a roof repair contractor at the first sign of a leak. The best way to prevent water damage is to stop the leak as soon as possible. 
  2. Unplug Appliances & Cut the Power: Stay away from any electrical fixtures or outlets near the leak. If there's water near electrical devices or outlets, shut off the power in those zones.
  3. Contain the Water: Place buckets under the leak to catch the water. If there's a ceiling swell, the roof repair contractor might create a minor opening for drainage to relieve the pressure (this can help prevent the entire ceiling from collapsing). 
  4. Move Furniture & Valuables: Move furniture and valuables away from the leak. Cover larger items that can't be moved with tarps or plastic sheets.
  5. Soak Up Standing Water: Use towels or mops to soak up any standing water. If possible, use battery-operated fans to circulate the air and help dry out the interior of your home. 
  6. Document the Damage For Insurance: Capture images or footage of the leak and resulting damage. This can be helpful later if you need to file an insurance claim.

Roof leaks can be stressful. Keep calm and communicate any immediate concerns to our roofing contractors. When we arrive we will assess the situation, provide a temporary fix if needed, and then discuss longer-term solutions to prevent future leaks.

How to Prevent Roof Leaks

Regular roof maintenance and timely repairs can help prevent roof leaks from occurring. If you notice signs of an early-stage roof leak, it's essential to address it promptly to avoid further damage - do not wait! If a heavy rainfall or severe storm recently occurred, it’s a good idea to get your roof inspected to ensure the roof is in good health (even if you don’t notice any signs of damage). Homeowners often overlook regular roof maintenance because other home-related fixes are more noticeable. When neglected, your roof can quickly become one of the most expensive parts of your home to fix and remodel.

roof leak prevention through periodic roof maintenance

We discovered a leak somewhere in our roof. We were under time pressure because we were selling our house and the closing was less than 2 weeks away. Paul came out and checked the roof to determine exactly where the leak was occurring. He identified the location and scheduled a time a few days later to make the repair. When the weather turned too inclement to make the repair he and his team worked on a Saturday to quickly repair the leaking area. They were very efficient and thorough. They fully cleaned up the area on the roof and the ground. When they departed there was no trace they had been there other than the fact that the roof no longer leaked. I wish I had known about this company when we had our roof replaced a few years earlier due to hail damage. I probably would not have had this problem to deal with. Great company to work with!
