Do you have water coming in and don’t now where its coming from? Are your valleys clean from leafs and debris? Do you know what a valley is?
A valley is where two parts of your roof come together, they are also know as a ridge. These areas are notorious for leaks due to its heavy traffic of water and moisture. The flow of water often moves around the valley and can find its way into places you wouldn’t expect.
Don’t get caught off guard, be sure to clear this area of any leafs or debris. Any items that can cause water to build up or pool will cause damage to your roof and hosing structure. Proper instalation of shingles and ice shields in the valley is key.
