April showers bring far more than May flowers if you aren’t conscientious about your roofing. This season sees the focus fall on leaks and the potential for leaks and, if you aren’t careful, the water-damage that comes along with it. We walk you through all you need to know in this handy and simple guide to keep water from leaking in through your roof, causing damage to the home.
How leaks form
Leaks in residential roofing in Redmond, WA don’t require huge gaps or holes in your roofing to start. In fact, it usually begins with small cracks in the roofing material or un-adhered gaps between materials. From these tiny entryways, small amounts of water can seep in and slowly wreak havoc with your interiors. The point is, it starts small — it always starts small.
What water can do
For people, water is a life-giving substance that we need to survive from day to day. Homes are the opposite. Many of the materials that compose a home tend to rot or age poorly when water is introduced. The signs that this is going down usually start with brown stains on the ceiling or actual water pooling in places where water should not pool. This might seem like a minor hassle at first, but it can get very costly when not immediately addressed.

Like most problems, the immediate need for re-roofing in Bellevue, WA can be put off by proper and regular maintenance. All it takes is a little foresight and some professional help.
