No matter how old your home is, eventually you will need to get professional roof repair services. That’s because no roof lasts forever. However, if you take care of roof repairs as needed, your roof will last a long time. If you don’t, then your roof will begin to disintegrate and you’ll need to replace it a lot sooner than necessary. Read this blog post to find out the telltale signs that your roof needs to be repaired.
Signs That You Need Immediate Roof Repair
Missing Tiles or Shingles – Your roof functions best when it’s fully intact. If you notice roof shingles or roof tiles on your lawn, then your roof is beginning to deteriorate and needs to be repaired or replaced. It just depends on the level of roof decay.
Curling Shingles – Shingles begin to curl when they’re at the end of their lifespan. It’s a clear sign that your roof needs to be replaced, not repaired. Get this done sooner than later, you won’t have many shingles left.
Green Spots on Your Roof – Unless you have a green tiled roof, your roof should not be green. If you notice green spots on your roof, then you need to get on the phone immediately and have your roof inspected by a roof repair company. This is because the green spots you’re seeing are probably patches of mold. Unfortunately that’s usually a sign that your roof has water damage. Get it repaired as soon as possible.
Your Gutters Are Clogged – If you don’t have a lot of trees or foliage close to your roof than you shouldn’t have to constantly clean your gutters. In fact, if your gutters are continually clogged, then you most likely need to get your roof repaired. It’s not leaves that are clogging your gutters, it deteriorated roofing material. In other words, little bits of your roof are clogging your gutter.
Your Paint Is Peeling – In most cases, peeling interior or exterior paint is a sign of a leaking roof. If you have papered walls in your home instead of painted walls, then you may notice that it’s buckled. Go to your attic and see if you notice damp walls, puddles, musty odors, or obvious daylight streaming through your roof.
