Signs Your Roof Needs Repair
It can be difficult to determine when your roof needs repair unless a flagrant issue has manifested. After all, it’s not like you’re climbing on your roof on a daily basis to make sure every shingle is intact.
The good news is that there are a few tell-tale signs — both significant and subtle — that suggest your roof needs repair services.
Here are the primary warnings that your roof needs repair:
Curled or cracked shingles
Especially after a classic Colorado hail storm or any severe weather, you’ll want to inspect your shingles. If you notice that shingles are curled or cracked, it’s a sign that they are at the end of their lifespan. Depending on the state of the rest of your roof, repairing a few singles can keep your roof healthy for a few years to come.
Missing shingles aren’t just unsightly; they’re a huge liability that should be repaired. Having missing shingles is the same concept as having an open wound — anything can get in or out. Roofing contractors can repair sections of your roof, so you don’t need to worry about a full roof installation for a few shingles.
Shingles in the gutter
Have you noticed black specks in your gutter? If it seems like you have residue in your gutters that looks like sand, it might be portions of your shingles’ outer layer. This is also a sign that your roof is nearing the end of its heyday. Before jumping to new roof installation, however, you might be able to give yourself some time by investing in roof repair.
Pipe flashing issues
Pipe flashings protect your roofs from leakage. They seal the open spaces on your roof near air conditioning units, plumbing, and chimneys, to name a few fixtures. Even if your roof looks to be in premium shape, your pipe flashing might be suffering. In fact, wear and tear normally occurs faster for flashings compared to the rest of your roof. A roofing contractor team can repair pipe flashings and check to make sure they’re effective.
Water damage in the attic
The attic is like the pulse of your roof health. Make it a habit to check your attic for signs of water damage, mold, and compromised structural pieces. Especially after a big hail or snow storm, you’ll want to check on your attic.
If you see stains on your ceilings, you have a leak coming from somewhere. A roofing contractor can identify the source of the leak and recommend the appropriate repair.
Peeling paint, especially near your ceilings, indicates that your roof has a ventilation issue. If a roof doesn’t properly ventilate air, it lets moisture build up near the roof. As a result of this humidity, paint tends to peel. If you notice this phenomenon, make sure to call a local roofing company.
Reasons To Invest In Roof Repair
Roof repair might not seem like a household priority, but it should be. When you’re proactive about roof repair, you can save thousands of dollars in the long-run.
Consider these top reasons for scheduling roof repair:
A solid roof makes for a solid property appraisal. New home buyers are always checking to see that a roof is in good condition before purchasing a house. Keeping your roof in good shape might be an investment up front, but it can add thousands to your property value.
Insurance companies will look to make sure you’ve been responsible when it comes to roof maintenance. If you ever want to make an insurance claim about your roof, it helps to do it as soon as you notice the damage.
Colorado is a dry environment, but that doesn’t mean it’s impermeable to mold. Leaving your roof leaky or with missing shingles opens your entire house up to water damage. Roof repair is nothing in comparison to fixing a house-wide mold issue.
