Certain kinds of roofing materials in New Jersey are more vulnerable to leaks than others, but you should know how to tell if you have a leak regardless of what your roof is made of. Catching a leak quickly can help you avoid potentially serious structural damage and mold growth inside your home or commercial building. Watch this video and see if you could have a leaky roof.
If you’re wondering if your roof is leaking, look upwards. Check any skylights in your attic for water stains, and look for water spots in bedroom ceilings as well. Curling or broken shingles also indicate the presence of a leak, and areas of pooling water can be problematic. Make sure you have a roof inspector check your roof every couple of years to make sure it’s still in good shape, and fix a roof leak as soon as possible to prevent the problem from worsening.
