Have Problems With Your Roof?
Signs of Roof Damage
Do you know what to look for to identify problems with your roof? Sometimes signs of damage are obvious, such as large areas with missing shingles or visible damage from something hitting your roof. However, there are some signs of roof damage you may miss if you don’t know what you should be looking for.
One of the first and most important things you can do is head up into your attic if you have one. Here, there are many things that could indicate potential damage, such as water stains on the ceiling and down the walls or the growth of mold and mildew.
Another thing to bear in mind is that some kinds of damage may be visible, though not necessarily as obvious as cracked or missing shingles. Things to look out for include sagging or buckled shingles. It’s also smart to make note of any mold or moss that may have had the chance to grow on or around your roof.
Finally, among the signs that may be more obvious, but one that many homeowners don’t associate with possible roof damage, is areas of rust around flashing or gutters. Rusting here doesn’t just mean you may need gutter replacement. It can also be a sign of roof damage. Take special note if you also notice that your gutters are beginning to leak, as this could also be a sign of problems with your roof or roof flashing.
Roof Repair or Replacement?
In many cases, roof repair will be all that’s needed to get everything back in shape, but there are also many cases in which a simple repair just won’t be enough. If there is extensive damage to your roof, or if it is has experienced a lot of wear and tear, you may need a roof replacement. However, what do you need to know to figure out if this is the case?
For those with asphalt shingle roofing, it can sometimes be easy to identify if a roof replacement will be needed. However, there are some instances when the damage and the need for replacement may be less obvious. For example, granule loss is a common problem but one you may not necessarily be able to see from the ground. Keep an eye out for these granules in the runoff around your home. It’s always smart to work with a roofing contractor experienced with asphalt shingle repair as well.
Another factor to bear in mind is the age of your roof. Make note of the type of roofing you have and the average lifespan for that type of roofing. For example, a good asphalt shingle roof may have a lifespan of up to 30 years. However, you should also note factors such as the climate. Intense heat and regular storms like we can see in Georgia may decrease a roof’s lifespan by up to half.
Our team can assess your roof and help you determine whether you’ll need repair or replacement. This can be an important step in ensuring your roof stays in the best possible condition so it can continue to offer you the protection you need.
