Your roof needs fixing when…

1-Shingles are black, filthy, or wet. 

If shingles are letting moisture stick to them, then they aren’t doing their task.

2-You see deterioration around roof objects and openings.

Funnels, outlets, vents, cylinders, pipes and other things that infiltrate your roof are locations where corrosion may develop. Repairs can oftentimes be limited to these particular places.

3-You notice stains on internal ceilings or walls.

Water marks or stains on partitions or ceilings can be triggered by plenty of different things. However, your roof’s underlayment may be enabling moisture to seep into your house, which results in the marks.

4-Is your roof floor bulging?

If you detect the flooring or timbers in your attic are drooping downhill rather than staying straight, they may be damp from leaking moisture.

5-Shingles are bent, broken, or lacking. 

These are signs that the shingles are reaching the end of their life cycle.

6-Notice any flaking exterior paint? 

If your attic is not properly ventilated, moisture can accumulate adjoining the roofline which can then cause exterior paint to flake.

7-Are there shingle pellets in pools of water around your building?

Composite or asphalt shingles discard their particles once they begin to deteriorate. These particles always end up in pools of water around a building. The granules look like rough, black gravel.

8- What about higher energy bills?

If you spot a spike in your air conditioning or heating expenses, the cool or warm air may be “leaking” out through your deteriorating roof.

When was your roof installed? Knowing the date will give you some perspective regarding if/when you need to replace it. Typically, most roofs last about 20 to 30 years before needing replacement.
