Shingles that are torn, cracked or damaged can allow water to leak into the attic and cause water damage that's expensive to repair.
Roof leaks can cause damage that's expensive to repair. A leak can start out small, but can cause a lot of damage if a warning sign is ignored.

Jewell Roofing & Exteriors offers roof leak repair and roof replacement options in Goodlettsville, Hendersonville, Gallatin and the surrounding area.
While a problem with the shingles is a common cause of water entry, roof leaks can occur for several reasons. Here are some of the common causes of roof leaks that we experience:
Shingles can blow off in high winds and crack due to hail. If shingles are missing, cracked or otherwise damaged, water can begin to leak into your home. We can help you find shingles to match the existing existing ones and install them according to manufacturer specifications.
Damaged flashing around the chimney or another roof penetration can allow water inside the home.
If the flashing around the chimney, skylights or other entry point is damaged, missing or improperly installed, this can allow water to get inside your attic or living area. Flashing may need to be replaced and the installation of a cricket can help divert water around the chimney to prevent leaks.
If you have a roof leak around the chimney, this problem can also be caused by a damaged chimney chase cover or rain pan.
When builders install prefabricated fireplaces, they typically install a galvanized chase cover that rusts over time, allowing water to leak into the home. Replacing the existing chimney rain pan with one that won't rust and is installed correctly can help prevent future water entry.
You might think that your shingles are to blame for your leaky roof, but pinpointing the cause of your roof leak can be difficult without knowing exactly where to look. The spot where you see water and stains may be some distance from the actual roof damage. If you're roof is leaking, have your roof inspected today to determine what your roof needs are.
