Cracked or Curled Shingles >
Shingles that are at the end of their lifespan might begin to show signs of old age including cracking or curling at the edges.
Missing Shingles >
It is common for shingles that are in good shape to be able to withstand heavy winds up to a point. However, when wind pummels an old roof, it’s likely that a few shingles will fly away. Once a couple are gone, it creates vulnerable areas and more are likely to follow. If you notice any missing shingles on your roof, call us for a free roof repair estimate.
Wet Shingles >
It’s normal for shingles to be wet after it rains, but if there is a particular area of your roof that seems to never dry, it could be a sign that you have a ventilation problem that needs to be addressed.
Shingle Granules In Gutters >
As shingles age or if they are damaged by hail or other factors, they can begin to shed granules that look like little beads. Asphalt shingles have these granules added to them to extend their life and protect them from UV damage.
If a few of these granules show up in the gutters from time to time, it’s nothing to worry about. However, if an excessive amount is getting caught in your gutters or you can physically see bare spots from missing granules, make sure to give us a call.
Torn, Lifting, or Missing Flashing >
Flashing is one of the most important features of your roof as it creates a seal between the roof and roof objects like chimneys and vents. This is essential for keeping water out. As a home settles or as a roof ages, the flashing can begin to peel, crack, or fly off altogether. This can make your home incredibly vulnerable to leaks and needs to be addressed right away.
Stains on Ceilings And Walls >
This is one of the most obvious signs of a roof leak and should be an indication that you need to call us for an inspection
. Because of the way homes are built, you can’t always depend on the faulty part of the roof being directly above the stain. It takes a trained eye to find out the cause of the problem and our wealth of experience can come in handy.
