Signs Of a Leaky Roof

A  leaking roof will sometimes be very easy to spot. From water dripping to dark stains starting to form on a wall. It won’t take much to realize what is going on there.


On the other hand there is the possibility it might be a little more hidden. The area may be lighter in color, and smaller. Even so, this does not make fixing the issue any less urgent. A leaking roof causes damage over time that will continue to get worse, and will require significant repairs. For convenience here is a list of things that could potentially mean a leaky roof.


  • Water Stains or damp spots on your ceiling
  • Dripping sounds inside your home
  • A musty smell within the home
  • Loose shingles laying in the yard
  • Cracked or damaged flashing around roof vents
  • Loose flashing or cracked sealants around your chimney
  • Roof rot with discolored or excessively degraded shingles
  • Moist drywall or paint around light fixtures or electrical outlets
  • Debris piles in roof valleys
  • Water stains on rafters or on roof sheathing inside your attic


Finding a Roof Leak

Finding a source can turn out to be quite the difficult task. As all it takes is a small opening for water to begin flowing through. Sometimes the leak will show up several feet from where the entry point is, making it even harder to pinpoint a location.


One way to go about it is a roof leak test. This could be done while raining, or just with a friend on the roof with a hose. Either way you go about it the goal is the same. Look for the spot in which the water is leaking to. This can be done by apply water to small sections of the roof while communicating with who ever is inside looking for the leak.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
