- CRACKED SHINGLES or tiles
Look for roof shingles or tiles that appear cracked or damage as a sign they need replacing. Check for any gaps or loose shingles or tiles on the ground, or if your shingle or tiled roof visibility is obstructed, look for granule build-up in the gutter.
- PEELING PAINT
Blistering or peeling paint on the property exterior can sign poor roof ventilation, causing moisture and mildew accumulation inside roof cavities and attic spaces.
- Water LEAKS
In the event of a rainstorm or intense downpour and your roofing system is compromised, check these four areas for leaks; the attic, vents, chimneys, and skylight.
- WATER DAMAGE
Water stains in the attic, the interior walls, or the ceiling of your property could sign that you leak in your roof.
- ICE DAMMING
Ice dam formation in the winter is a tell-tale sign that your attic and roof have poor ventilation, guttering system blockages, or potential roof leaks.
- SAGGING ROOFS
Sagging or dips in the roof can sign that you need a roof replacement; however, minor sagging or dips are typical under the weight of snow or heavy rain. If you notice roof sagging, contact a professional roof inspector to check the roof’s structural integrity.
- LARGE TREE BRANCHES
In the event of storms or high winds and you notice large branches on your roof, we recommend hiring professionals to remove the branch and immediately inspect the roof for any damage.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s advisable to have your roof inspected by a professional that can then offer the best course of action.
