The elements spare nothing and will rain or shine as nature pleases. Roof repair contractors are readily on the job when called and offer roofing solutions you can depend on. As the winter months melt away and spring rain clouds saunter through the sky, their target is ambiguous and undiscerning. When spring showers start to relentlessly pour, your home’s defenses have to be up to par to avoid serious leakage, rotting, and destruction of your property. After about 25 years, it is high time to consider repairing your roof or reshingling. To avoid serious damage to your home, be knowledgeable and prepared for the inevitable. Below, we discuss some of the tell-tale signs that your roof is in need of repair.
If you spot light coming through the ceiling.
The weather can wear away at the woodwork under your shingles and cause the formation of small holes. Once you see light coming through, it is paramount that you have it replaced immediately. If a hole is left unattended for an extended period of time, it can get larger and start to slowly deteriorate other parts of your home.
If you notice the shingles Are in disarray.
Common signs that your shingles are on their last leg are often very obvious. You want to keep an eye out for loose shingles, cracked shingles, curled shingles, and dark streaks in along the surface. If you do not regularly check your roof like most people, calculate how long it has been since the shingles were installed. If it has been at least 25 years, it is time to have a professional come for an inspection and consultation on the best course of action.
If you start to observe water stains on the ceiling.
Water stains are a result of holes in the roof. Heavy rainstorms will eat away at the woodwork under the shingles that is not meant to adequately handle it. Similar to observing light poking through, you will need to immediately address this to prevent other damages and health concerns like mold. You may also be subjecting your home to a potential ceiling collapse due to deterioration of the molding and braces.
Leaks In The House.
A leaky roof is the most common sign that you need roof repair. During a rainstorm, you will often hear drips coming from somewhere in the house. When this occurs, contact a professional immediately to come and repair it.
