There are a number of things in life that can send even a usually calm person into a stressful state of mind or a feeling of helplessness. it can be the sudden illness or injury of a child or close family member that causes us to feel out of control. There are many other reasons including an unexpected job loss, but one I have seen first hand at Drawdy Roofing & Vinyl Siding is when a homeowner discovers a damp place in the ceiling or wall due to a leaking roof. 

Our home is where we feel secure, protected, safe and dry. The saying, "keeping a roof over our head" is usually used in the context of a conversation when a homeowner is talking about their ability to provide food and shelter for their selves and family. The family's security is challenged when their is a defect in the home that keeps them out of the elements. It is understandable that a homeowner feel this way.

There are some things a homeowner can do to minimize the risk of a leak. The infograph below courtesy of The Washington Post shows some of the most common areas that can cause a roof to leak and where to look. Preventing a leak can be as simple as keeping leaves from building up in gutters or replacing rotten fascia board. If you experience a leak we can be contacted through our website or by giving us a call to schedule a service call.
