A Solution to Roof Drainage Issues

How to Solve Your Drainage Issues

If you've been experiencing drainage issues with your roof, you're not alone. Many homeowners deal with this problem every year. The good news is that there is a solution, and the Honest Abe Roofing team can help!

The Effects of Poor Drainage

Your roof's drainage system is responsible for removing the water from your roof and away from your home. When water isn't able to drain properly, it can pool on your roof, leading to a number of problems including:

  • Leaks
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Rotting
  • Structural damage

All of these problems can be costly to repair, so it's important to address drainage issues as soon as possible!

What Causes Poor Drainage?

The main cause of roof drainage issues is clogged gutters. When your gutters are full of leaves and debris, they can't do their job properly. This causes water to back up on your roof, leading to the problems listed above.

If your home has a flat roof, you could be facing additional drainage issues. Flat roofs are more susceptible to pooling because they don't have the same slope as traditional roofs. This can cause water to sit on your roof for extended periods of time, which can lead to serious damage.
