5 Risks of Unaddressed Roof Leaks

Roof leaks are more than just an inconvenience or a cosmetic issue. They pose several dangers that can have long-lasting effects on your home and the well-being of its occupants.

Here are five important reasons for property owners to take immediate action when they see or suspect a roof leak: 

  • Electrical hazards: When water enters your home through a leaking roof, it can come into contact with electrical wiring, outlets, or appliances. Water and electricity are a dangerous combination that can lead to short circuits, power outages, electrical fires, and even electrocution.
  • Water damage: Water can deteriorate building materials, including drywall, insulation, and wooden structures, leading to structural instability and costly repairs. It can also stain walls and ceilings, create unsightly marks, and damage furniture or personal belongings.
  • Mold growth: One of the most insidious dangers that arise from roof leaks is mold growth. Moisture from roof leaks creates an ideal environment for mold spores to thrive. Exposure to mold can cause respiratory issues, allergies, skin irritation, and other health problems, particularly for those with pre-existing respiratory conditions or weakened immune systems. Mold remediation can be costly and time-consuming.
  • Slip and fall accidents: Leaking water can create slippery conditions. A simple trip or fall can result in injuries ranging from bruises and sprains to more severe fractures or head trauma. For businesses and rental property owners, there can be liability exposure if that happens.
  • Pest infestations: All it takes is a small gap or crack in the roof to allow rodents, termites, ants, and other pests to infiltrate your property in search of food, water, and shelter. Once inside, these pests can cause extensive damage to your home's structure, furniture, and belongings. They can also pose health risks by spreading diseases or triggering allergies.

3 Steps to Take When Your Roof Is Leaking

After calling our office to get a professional on the job, there are some interim steps property owners can take to mitigate damage—and, perhaps, the cost of the repair job. 

Take these three steps when you spot a roof leak: 

  • Contain the water: Place buckets, pots, or any other suitable containers beneath the leak to catch the dripping water. 
  • Cover your items: Move any furniture, electronics, or valuable items away from the affected area. Protecting your belongings will help minimize potential losses and make the cleanup process easier.
  • Relieve water pressure: If possible, carefully inspect the area near the leak. Look for signs of pooling water or bulging ceilings. Using a sharp object such as a screwdriver, gently puncture a small hole in the ceiling to release the trapped water. This will help reduce the weight and pressure on the affected area, preventing ceilings from collapsing or further structural damage.

Financing Is Available

One of the most stressful things about unexpected roof damage is the concern over costs. The customers at Boyd Property Group can apply for financing through our office to help better manage the up-front expense of roof repair work.
