Roof leaks are a frustrating and expensive affair if the underlying cause is not discovered and repaired in time. They can be caused by something as small as a rusted nail, but can result in huge issues, including hundreds of dollars in drywall damage, damage to your insulation, and costing you money and time repainting the ceiling as well as patching your shingles. Here are a few typical reasons why your roof may be leaking:
- Old age
- Vents on the roof
- Accumulation of debris on the roof
- Missing shingles

Tips for Assessing and Repairing Damages to Your Roof After a Storm
Residents of South Carolina are likely very familiar with severe weather conditions that have the potential to damage a roof. After a storm has passed, it’s important to check your roof for damage which may have been caused by wind, hail, tree limbs and more. Obvious signs such as shingles which have fallen to the ground or a leak in your attic mean it’s time to contact a professional roofer to evaluate the extent of the damage. Premiere Roofing can simplify the process of working with your insurance company while you compare the expenses of repair versus replacement.
Signs of Roof Damage After a Storm
Depending on the type and severity of the storm, you may notice any or all of the following:
- Water stains along your walls or on your ceiling; drips may also be visible from the attic while it is raining.
- Shingles or sections of metal fascia that have fallen to the ground; missing sections of shingles on the roof may also be visible.
- Gutters and/or sections of siding that have fallen or been torn away.
- Large tree branches on the roof.
