Your roof is what keeps your home together and protects your interior from the harsh elements. You want to keep it in the best shape possible in order to ensure a great living experience. Damage to your roof can result in damage to the interior of your home as well. Here are three signs that you may need roof repairs.
You want to look at the roof from the interior of your home, which typically means the attic. You want to check for any signs of light coming in through the roof or for stains that may indicate leaks.You want to check for any water in the attic because that means water is getting in through the roof. Bubbles and discoloration on the ceiling also indicate water getting in, meaning it’s time for some roof repairs.
Plants are a great thing to have in your home or your garden, but they certainly shouldn’t be growing on your roof. If you inspect your roof and notice that there is some moss growing, this indicates that moisture is seeping into your roof and that there is rotting beneath the shingles. Roof repairs are necessary in this situation and you want to address it sooner than later because increased moisture could eventually cause your roof to sag, which could become a safety issue.
The shingles on your roof should always lie flat against the surface. If you notice any missing, cupped, or torn shingles, then you need some roof repairs. Damaged shingles can expose your roof to water damage and could cause it to rot. If one or a few shingles are damaged, they can quickly spread to the other ones, so it’s best to repair them once you notice any damage. You should also check your gutters as well. If you notice any of the granules from the shingles washed into the gutter, it is definitely time to call a professional.
