The roof of your home is the initial line of defense to protect your home from snow and rain. If a leak develops on the roof, it may result in serious issues that affect the entire structure of your home beyond your roof's structure.

In areas where you have a roofing opening like plumbing vents, chimneys, or attic vents, there are flashing components that are put in place to prevent the water from getting into these tangled locations.

The roof is composed of structural elements like trusses to create the foundation for the attachment of the felt paper, and eventually the shingles.

When a leak is first discovered, it's usually one small spot that allows a tiny amount of water through. If not discovered, the continuous pervasiveness of water could result in serious issues. This is why inspections of the attic and roof should be conducted every year. 

If a leak in the roofing goes unnoticed, the sheathing will eventually start to decay and become rotten until it is a point when the roof sheathing has to be put up. The added moisture that is in the attic could cause other problems in addition. 

Make sure you get your roof and attic checked annually to avoid leaks, and also to prevent leaks that further in the future can cause big problems.
