The roof. This is one of the most common reasons for water intrusion. Look out for improperly installed flashings and damaged shingles, etc. You should also make sure the roof has the right amount of slope so as to allow for adequate drainage. Gutters and downspouts can be another trouble spot if they become clogged up.
The properties foundations. Over time, you will likely notice holes and cracks developing in the home’s foundations, this makes it much easier for water to enter so be sure to have them repaired as soon as you find them.
The home's plumbing system. This has the potential to cause major water damage. Dripping faucets and pipes, blocked drains, and leaking fixtures should be fixed immediately to prevent further issues, even if the problem seems relatively minor.
High levels of indoor humidity. When humidity levels are too high in the home, moisture-related issues will ensue. You may begin to observe stains on walls and ceilings, or musty-smelling odors.
