Nobody knows their home as well as the homeowner. One of the most dreaded repairs among any homeowner is roof leaks. If you have brown stains developing on your ceilings, you should take action immediately. It is much better to have potential leaks dealt with right away, before they become expansive and costly repairs.

Ceiling stains are not attractive and can come from an extensive list of probable causes:

  • Pest Infestations
  • Mold and Mildew
  • Chemical Spills
  • Water leaks

Keep in mind that ceiling stains are not always a sign of an impending leak. Most people feel anxiety at the thought of expensive repairs, or even an entire roof replacement. Let’s look at a few causes of ceiling stains and what to do about them.

Where Are the Stains Coming From?

Moisture is the number one cause of ceiling stains. The dampness could be from a water leak in your roof, but it could also be coming from a pipe leak in your wall or attic. It is important to locate the source of the dampness, so you can know exactly what is causing the stains.

Here are a few other potential causes of brown spots on the ceiling:

  • Malfunctioning HVAC  ductwork
  • Shower Pans
  • Cracks in Stucco
  • Chimney Cracks
  • Plumbing Line Faults
  • Bad Plumbing Installation

The Importance of Regular Roof Inspections

While many of these issues can be easily addressed, it’s crucial that you let a roofing expert come in and inspect your roof and then complete the repair. They will ensure the job is done right the first time, putting your mind – and your wallet – at ease.

The roofing system is the most important part of your house, doing its job for years on end of keeping you and your loved ones and all your possessions safe and dry. Yet, it’s the least inspected and maintained part of the home. All too often we are unaware that there is any problem growing until a costly repair is needed. All this can be avoided simply by having a professional roofing contractor perform regular inspections.

Your roof is also the biggest investments you will make when it comes to your house, so it stands to reason that it should be protected. The fact is, most homeowners ignore signs of possible leaks or other roof damage, making them even more susceptible to costly repairs. The good news is there are many things you can check for simply by inspecting your roof from the ground. Hiring a roofing professional is wise and can save you a lot of money in the long run. The key is to educate yourself on things you should look for and call in the experts if you find things that concern you.
