Roof leaks are often caused by small deficiencies, yet they can eventually wreak havoc on your home, leading to hundreds of dollars in damage.

Identifying and addressing potential roof leak sources as soon as they are noticeable will help you to prevent extensive damage, saving you money and peace of mind in the long term.
