Are you moving into a new home soon? That is exciting news! However, what will you do if the roof is leaking? Do you know how to identify the potential causes? You could always call a professional to do roof repairs. However, you should also know how to identify the issue so that you can convey the issue to the professionals, fix it yourself, or prevent it from happening again in the future. In this video, you will learn about some of the most common reasons that there are watermarks on your ceiling.
Your ceiling could be developing watermarks due to nail pops. Nail pops occur when the nails used on the shingles get dislodged or “popped” out of place. This happens over time for a number of reasons. For example, nail pops are likely to occur if the wrong type of nail was used. This often happens with DIY projects. Further, hot and humid weather is a major contributing factor to nail pops. If this is the case, you will need to replace the shingles and add new nails. If you don’t know how to do this yourself, please contact a professional to assist you.
