When Should You Call A Professional About Your Roof?

4 Warning Signs Your Roof Needs Attention

When water starts dripping into your home from the roof, you know something is wrong. But sometimes, signs of roof trouble are subtler. If you spot one or more of these symptoms of trouble, you should have your roof seen right away; roofing problems do not improve with age and waiting could lead to more repairs.

4 Warning Signs your Roof Needs Attention

Wet ceilings: A wet or damp ceiling is a sign that water is coming in somewhere, whether it is from the flashing, the shingles or damage elsewhere. It is important to not only stop the leak, but find the source of it, since it will not get better on its own.

You spot shingle damage: A single shingle may not seem like a big deal, but even one damaged piece can impact the integrity of your roof. Shingles that curl up at the ends, are cracked or missing entirely are a clear sign that your roof is headed for trouble and should be inspected by a pro.

All your neighbors are getting roof repair: It’s not a matter of keeping up with the neighborhood – but one of quality. If all of the homes in your community were built at the same time, with the same materials by the same team, then they may begin to fail at the same time. Get proactive and have your roof inspected to spot problems early if several of your neighbors are getting repairs.

Dark stains or mold: If water is not draining from your roof properly or allowed to pool in places, it can lead to dark stains and mold growth. Mold is a clear sign that your roof needs help. You can’t remove this alone – it may require specialty products and approaches to clean it up.

Thankfully, most roof problems are easily identified and remedied. By actively assessing your roof and ceilings regularly (from the ground) and spotting these early signs of trouble, you can protect your home and dramatically reduce the amount of damage that you might otherwise incur.
