Possible Reasons Behind Leaks in Your Building

By Stacy Mellete

Not all leaks are caused by roofing problems, and just because you have leaks in your building doesn’t mean your roof is in bad condition. Roof repairs and installation expert, Affordable Roofing Systems, shares some other reasons leaks may occur.

Faulty Siding

If you haven’t had your siding inspected in a while, now might be the time to do so. Moisture may have gotten into cracks in your siding and found its way into your home. Faulty installation may also be to blame, so check if your warranty is still in effect and have your siding repaired right away.

Clogged Gutters

Gutters are meant to properly drain your roof’s surface. Without proper design and measurement, however, they may not be able to keep water from seeping into your foundation. Since gutters still form part of your roofing system, get commercial roofing professionals like Affordable Roofing Systems to determine any gutter issues you may have.

Warped Windows

When windows lose their weather-tightness or end up with warped frames over time, they can be a source of leaks too. Have your windows regularly inspected to get ahead of potential problems. Consider replacing your windows if they are past the prescribed time of expected usage or beyond warranty coverage as well.

Damaged Piping

Leaks can come from damaged plumbing or HVAC piping. If you suspect either to be the reason behind your building leaks, have them checked by professional contractors as soon as you can.
