Does your roof leak when it rains? Is your basement damp–or worse–after a summer storm? Late summer or early fall is the perfect time to address these issues. Leaks can be the result of a number of home maintenance issues. A shingle or two may have blown off of your roof during a storm. The roof flashing (those metal pieces that keep water from running down the sides of your chimneys and vents) may have come away from the plane of the roof. Or, you may have tiny cracks in the mortar or masonry work of your foundation.
When you’re roof is leaking, it’s often difficult to tell where the water is entering your home. Moisture can travel along your ceiling beams for many feet, even yards, before dripping down on your ceiling. Similarly, water in your basement may pool away from the place it is entering the walls.
