Visible Damage: Several signs may indicate your roof needs repair, ranging from apparent leaks to more subtle clues. Here are some key things to look for:

  • Missing or broken shingles: This is a clear sign of damage and exposes your roof to the elements.
  • Cracked or curled shingles: Even if not missing, these indicate wear and tear and potential leaks.
  • Granules in your gutters: These tiny pieces are shed from asphalt shingles and are normal, but excessive amounts suggest the shingles are deteriorating.
  • Sagging roof deck: This can indicate structural damage or water accumulation underneath the roof.
  • Visible daylight through the roof indicates a severe issue that needs immediate attention.

Water Leaks:

  • Visible daylight through the roof indicates a severe issue that needs immediate attention.
  • Stains on ceilings or walls: Look for dark spots, peeling paint, or watermarks, especially near attic rooms or exterior walls.
  • Mold or mildew growth: This thrives in damp environments and can indicate water intrusion.
  • Damp attic: Check for signs of moisture on insulation, rafters, or other materials.

Other Indications:

  • Age of your roof: Most roofs have a lifespan of 20-30 years. Inspecting your roof for potential issues is wise if it is approaching or exceeding this age.
  • Recent storms: Even minor storms can damage your roof, so checking after any weather event is recommended.
  • Increased energy bills: Leaks or poor insulation can lead to higher energy costs.

If you notice any of these signs, I would like to have your roof inspected by a qualified professional as soon as possible. Early detection and repair can prevent further damage and save you money in the long run.

Here are some additional tips:

  • Schedule regular roof inspections: Aim for annual or bi-annual inspections, especially if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions.
  • Clean your gutters: Clogged gutters can trap water and damage your roof.
  • Trim tree branches: Overhanging branches can scratch or damage your roof during storms.

By being proactive and aware of potential problems, you can keep your roof in good condition and protect your home from leaks and other damage. This clearly shows damage and exposes your roof to the elements.
