How to Spot a Roof Leak

Knowing you have a roof leak is usually obvious when you see the water spot on your ceiling. However, it can be much harder to pinpoint the cause of the leak.

    Missing shingles.
    Cracked or damaged shingles.
    Missing or damaged flashing or boot covers to roof penetrations.
    Water spots or wet roof decking (seen through the attic).

Timeless Roof Colors

Designer Chad Esslinger explains how picking a roof color that is classic can help to keep your home exterior design looking timeless.

Homeowner Question: How do I pick a roof color that's considered to be 'classic' or 'timeless'?

Chad's Answer: "Classic" and "timeless" are words you hear a lot when it comes to design. Classic design stands the test of time and does not appear "dated" - creating a look that is timeless.
