Out of Sight, Out of Mind – Not When It Comes to Your Roof

Just because you can’t necessarily see it, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about it. Since many of us don’t just grab a ladder and hop up on our roofs for fun, we don’t actually know what’s going on up there. Whether it’s age, durability, or weather elements, roofs are prone to wear and tear during their lifespan. So, how do you know if you have any damage that needs to be addressed? By contacting an experienced and proven roofing contractor for a comprehensive and thorough inspection.


Here are some signs your roof is in need of a repair or replacement:


  • Longevity—a roof's lifespan varies depending on factors such as weather conditions and roofing materials used. Even if there hasn’t been any severe weather that may have caused damage, having an inspection every few years is important since we don’t really know until we can see.


  • Damaged or missing shingles, tiles, or metal—regardless of the materials used for your roof, it can get damaged. High wind speeds can lift shingles, flying objects can crack tile, and hail can dent metal. All of these factors can damage the outer layer of your roof and the decking, leading to rot or leaking.


  • Water damage, leaks, and sagging roof deck—Ever look up and see a mysterious water spot on your ceiling? That could very likely be a sign of a leak originating from your roof. Leaks and water damage can lead to mold, rot, and structural damage, so it is critical to have those inspected.


  • Shingle granules in the gutter - if you’re noticing granules in your gutters, your asphalt shingles are aging and are likely in need of a replacement or repair. 


  • Cracked flashing - damaged flashing can allow water intrusion under your roof and into your home. The flashing seals the joints of your roof, prohibiting water from coming in. 


  • Higher than usual energy bills - have your energy bills suddenly increased? This could be from roof damage or improperly installed materials that are decreasing the energy efficiency and insulation in your home. 


Whether the signs are obvious or not, it is always essential to have your roof inspected by a professional roofing contractor. Sometimes underlying issues start from the top – of your roof, that is.
