One sneaky problem in your shingles that could be causing leaks is a tiny hole. Here are some of the problems this can cause over time.
The constant dampness on wood can cause it to rot. This could lead to structural damage over time, depending on the location of the dampened wood.
Wet or humid conditions is a breeding ground for mold, which can lead to respiratory problems in the home.
The good news is small holes are pretty easy to fix. While just caulking the hole isn’t likely to solve the issue, flashing is always a good option you should consider.
A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
