Small Leaks Can Lead to Major Physical Damage: A small leak can cause major damage. Perhaps you have seen the dark spots on the ceiling indicating a leak in a storage room and you think,” no one sees this but me; it can wait.” However, a small amount of moisture damage can cause your ceiling or the wood in your house to rot. Failing to get a roof leak repaired can lead to additional damages to your home. Damaged plaster and a ceiling tile falling is just the start of your problems
Moisture In Your Home Can Be A Health Hazard: Not only can a roof leak damage your house, that small leak you see in the closet can pose a health hazard to your family. Moisture can lead to mold.

In turn, the moisture fosters the growth of mold. The CDC article continues and notes that the mold can cause upper respiratory infections, allergies and numerous other health problems. Therefore, getting a roof leak repaired can prevent visits to the doctors, lost days at work, and missed school days for your children.
