Water damage on roofs is an adverse degradation condition. This setup is mainly because water is a sneaky and discreet impairment agent. The moisture on the surface may evaporate from high temperatures, but you will not be able to detect the soaked in water within the roof’s structure. Unattended water damage could lead to irreversible effects and unnecessarily high bills.
How to detect possible water damage of the roof
Water spots and leaks
Water spots and leaking areas will often leave a brown color on the ceiling, wall, chimney, or vent. Small and light spots signify that the leak is relatively new. The opposite calls for immediate attention from expert Houston water damage restoration teams by Texans Force.
Shingles are the skin of the roof. They will show visible signs of damage when the structure underneath has dampness. A damaged shingle will bend, crack, cup, curl or buckle. It is paramount to handle the issue before you require complete replacement of the roofing structure.
Gutters with granule
Granules protect the roofing material from sun and water damage. You will notice a deposition of granules in trenches immediately after a recent job. Increased granule deposits will leave bald spots on the roof, exposing it to possible damage by water.
A lower ceiling
A ceiling that curves inwards signifies advanced water damage on the roof.
A soft deck
Damaged roofing will feel soft or spongy, indicative of a long-standing water damage case. The soaked up materials lose their original sturdiness when exposed to water.
What should you do when you confirm definite water damage?
The safety of the household
Hazards could arise when children decide to play around the spot on the floor with dripping water. They will have a dangerous exposure to water containing toxic roofing chemicals and risk skidding. Layout a rag on the floor to absorb the water.

Sometimes you need a different kind of repair than your original assumption. The signs of water damage on the roof could also mean that you have a leaked or busted pipe. This precaution will save you both time and money.
