Why Water Drips Down Between My Roof Shingles and the Gutter System

If the house is large or small, a roof leak is the last thing anyone needs. Every time it rains no one wants to have to go running for a drip bucket. 

Not only is it a problem to have to remain on top of the weather forecast checking every time it rains, but when you notice tiny drips, it’s going to be a greater roofing problem.

We all know that problems with roofing involve expenditures in time and resources. If your roof is two or twenty years old, it’s best to inspect it every once in a while. You never know when the difference between doing a simple patch or a big remodel might mean it.

Drip.. drip.. Drip..

Can you hear that? 

Or better yet, can you see it?

There’s dripping from your roofing and gutter system

You’d best patch it soon if you have a leaky roof, even if it doesn’t concern you much or you’re getting a new roof. Small leaks can lead to major issues, such as mold, rotted fencing and sheathing, broken insulation, and damaged ceilings, often within a brief period of time. 

The flickering leak will trigger a costly maintenance bill, and it will surely show in the ceiling through water stains. The loss and eventual repairs would have been negligible if you had dealt with it straight away.

There could be many reasons behind the dripping. It’s probably because it was installed without any flashing over the back of the gutter if you discover water dripping behind your gutter system

Do A Quick Check-Up

The first thing you can do is get up on a ladder (after it stops raining) and ensure if the gutters themselves are not clogged. If the gutters are obstructed, the water can overflow the gutters and this contributes to the leak.

Run a hose and fill the gutters with water if the gutters appear empty. Water could run out of the downspout without flooding the gutter and away from the house. If the interior of the gutter is overflowing with sewage, this means the gutters are clogged. 

What’s Causing It?

As well as the passing of time, environmental conditions inevitably allow roof shingles to deteriorate and become unsuccessful at holding water out. This is particularly the case in areas where roofs face extremely high temperatures due to heavy snow and ice.

It’s possible for your gutter system to get clogged with leaves, branches, or other clutter in the gutters around the roof that can block water from running off the roof. This results in stagnant water that has time to soak back into your house and into the shingles. One solution is gutter covers, and another is trimming back leaves on nearby trees.

Conclusion

When you’re full of worry about your dripping roofing, it’s best to call your local roofer as soon as possible. It’s a good idea to call someone you trust with your roofing, where your money will be worth the quality of service and materials you’ll get. 

As Quality Discount Roofing and Construction continues to grow as a truster roofing company in Jacksonville, Florida, you know you’re in good hands.
