There are many reasons for leaks but the main ones are inevitably age- and climate-related. Houses are just like humans: with age, come problems. Parts wear down, climate affects one’s health, and time unfortunately takes its toll. Extreme weather conditions and exposure to sunlight damage the roofing materials, causing them to crack. Of course sunlight is the most seriously damaging of all, as it can even melt the tar that seals roof shingles together.
The potential damage caused by leaks or poor quality work can be significant
Not clearing out debris — twigs, leaves, etc. — may trap water against the roof and allow it to seep into the house. As difficult and unpleasant a task as it may be, leaving this chore undone can often cause critical damage, since a build-up and its attendant problems must be avoided at all costs. Does your roof need replacing — or merely restoration? Do you check your patio roof regularly? Are your roofs metal or steel?
Ensure that your property and assets are well protected
And then there is the attic, which is not climate controlled and is therefore at risk of water condensation. Such condensation will lead to mould, which in turn can lead to a number of serious issues including extreme structural damage. Is your insulation adequate? Has there been any hail damage?

Cracked flashing poses another potential problem. Flashing is the thin metal installed beneath shingles and around roof joints to make them watertight. The cracking mainly occurs due to decay in the tar used to seal the flashing to the house, thus allowing water to enter and cause additional damage.
No detail is ever neglected
Even the removal of roof-top installations such as an ordinary television aerial can result in damage if any holes are left. Every little thing has to be considered and acted upon immediately, to avoid that arch destroyer – water – trickling its way into your precious home.
