Spring is here which means spring showers and rainstorms are on their way. When the sky gets dark and the rain sets into a downpour, have you wondered how these heavy rains can impact your roof? While most rainstorms won't cause issues immediately, sometimes rain can raise awareness of an underlying issue like a roof leak. However, if it rains hard enough for a long period of time, damage can occur.
