• Defective flashing. It is a sheet of metal utilized in waterproofing roofing valleys, dips and angles. Look for flashing rust or dislocation, which is common in Champaign County and places nearby.
  • Congested downspouts or crevasses. Downspouts might be choked with accumulated water or snow right above the flashing which might have triggered the leak. This would be an easy roof leak repair.
  • Splitting and deterioration. Roofing usually weakens due to wear and tear. Check for any breaking.
  • Holes. Missing shingles or holes will cause damp spots. Depending on the Champaign County environment, these can become severe quickly.
