The Dangers of a Leaky Roof and How Eternabond EternaCaulk Can Resolve It

Your roofing system is one of the most vital parts of your building as it prevents outdoor elements from affecting the indoor environment of your rooms and spaces. It can also help deter the same elements from damaging the structural components of your property.

Of course, its expected benefits can only be attained if it will be inspected and maintained regularly. One of the activities that can help maintain the roofing system is the sealing of holes, seams, and other similar elements. With appropriate sealing applications, your roofing system may generate leaks that can be damaging to your property.

Damaging Effects of a Leaky Roof

A roofing system that does not have any appropriate sealing may cause negative and even hazardous effects to your property and everyone inside. Some of the effects of a leaky roof are as follows.

  • Ceiling Damages– One of the effects of a leaky roof is the presence of ceiling damage. Your roofing system serves as your primary line of defence against moisture, heat, and other weather elements. Without sealing its holes and seams, these elements can enter your ceiling components until their surfaces darken. Your ceiling plaster may likewise bubble and expand, which you and others can easily spot as your ceiling-mounted lights and fans become damaged.
  • Mould and Mildew– The existence of mould and mildew also signifies that your leaky roof situation has worsened. Mould and mildew only thrive in wet areas. Since your roof is leaking, mould spores and others may find wet areas on your roof system, leading to their growth and expansion. As time passes, these elements may attack your timber framing, floor coverings, and walls. They may even cause serious health issues to you and others.
  • Weakened Structures – One more effect of a leaky roof is the existence of weakened structures. The structural integrity of your property may deteriorate significantly if your leaky roof continues to allow water and other elements from entering. As these elements continue to infiltrate your property, they may ultimately cause damage to your rafters, ceiling joists, and wall framing.
