Is Your Roof Leaking?

Is Your Roof Leaking

Letting a leaking roof go can cost big money. Make sure to look for these signs to see if your roof is leaking from Enlightenme:

  • Missing or damaged shingles. It’s a good idea to inspect your roof periodically. If you spot missing or damaged shingles, this is an obvious entrance point for water, which can rot the wood sheathing underneath and can lead to extremely costly repairs. Get the shingles repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
  • Issues with flashing. Flashing (the material, usually metal, that covers the joints on your roof where water would otherwise get in) is a common source of leaks. Look for corroded spots, small holes, or signs of rust. There may also be places where the flashing is coming loose and allowing water to stream in.
  • Problems with the ceiling. The first visible sign of leaks on the inside of your home will often be on the ceiling. Any sagging, bubbles, or soft places should be investigated right away. You might notice peeling paint or discolored spots, too.
  • Problems with walls. Like the ceiling, water damage often takes the form of peeling paint or discolored spots. You might see moisture marks, or gray, yellow, or brown stains. Drywall may also come undone in places.
  • Mold. When leaks go undetected for a long time, they are very likely to cause mold in your home. This can cause symptoms like sore throat, itchy skin, and coughing in you or your family members, so it’s a good idea to have a mold inspection performed if one or more people in your household are having these symptoms. After the mold is removed, the leak should be found and addressed.
  • Signs in the attic. If you have an attic that you can access, go there and look for signs. If you have a leaky roof, they’ll likely be pretty obvious. You might see water stains, discolorations, or even moldy areas.

New Homes Building Trends

This morning, the Census Bureau released March SF Housing Starts which were 22.7% higher than February 2012 and 8.5% higher than March 2011.

March starts are used to develop our April market size in residential new construction. So for fiscal 2012 YTD SF starts have increased 12.9% compared to fiscal 2011 YTD. Regionally, all areas saw improvements over March 2011, and all regions are positive YTD relative to a year ago.

Multi-Family starts were (-4.4%) lower than February 2012, and were 11.0% higher than March 2011. Year to date Multi-Family is +56.1% over last year.

In other related news, builder confidence in the market for newly built, single-family homes declined for the first time in seven months this April, sliding threenotches to 25 on the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) released yesterday. The decline brings the index back towhere it was in January, which was the highest level since 2007. Each of the index’s components registered declines in April. The component gauging current sales conditions and the component gauging sales expectations in the next six months fell three points, to 26 and 32, respectively, while the component gauging traffic of prospective buyers fell four points to 18.

“What we’re seeing is essentially a pause in what had been a fairly rapid build-up in builder confidence that started last September,” said NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe. “This is partly because interest expressed by buyers in the past few months has yet to translate into expected sales activity, but is also reflective of the ongoing challenges that are slowing the housing recovery – particularly tightcredit conditions for builders and buyers, competition from foreclosures and problems with obtaining accurate appraisals.”
