When water is able to get through the roof of your house it does a lot of damage before you actually get to see the evidence. It is frustrating to see wet spots on the ceiling and walls that turn into ugly stains, but this is superficial. Behind the scenes there is a lot more going on. The water seeping into the roof speeds up the deterioration process of the shingles, allowing a network of hairline cracks to develop. The roof sheathing soaks up some of the moisture and breaks down. The fasteners and adhesives that keep the roofing materials in place lose their functionality, allowing more water to enter.
The materials that were used to construct your home are not resistant to excess moisture. Mildew and rot eventually set in. Materials such as insulation that are not directly affected by water become a breeding ground for colonies of toxic black mold.
