4 Signs That Your Roof Needs Repair

Do you schedule regular roof inspections? If you haven’t given much attention to your roof lately, looking at these signs might help you sort out if it needs major or minor modifications.

4 Signs That Your Roof Needs Repair

1. Leaking

This is an early sign that a roof repair may be on the horizon. Having it checked out by your trusted contractor is a great way to prevent any major damage, including a major leak.

2. Curling, Cracked and Missing Shingles

Your shingles exhibit signs of aging by curling, wherein the edges or the center of your roof shingles are coming upwards. This is a clear sign to get new shingles.

As for cracked shingles, you should choose shingles with better wind resistance because cracked shingles are often caused by strong wind from storms. You will want to have professionals conduct a storm damage inspection to reduce future expenses and maybe learn some maintenance tips along the way.

3. Moss or AlgaeĀ 

Having moss or algae on your roof isn’t that alarming, but it does compromise the exterior look of your home. You can hire professional roofers to scrape them off or replace them with shingles that are algae-resistant.

4. Sunlight Gets In

This is an extreme sign that your roof needs repairs because it means your roof has holes. If light can get in, so can rain, snow and drafts. Minor tears can be repaired, but major ones may need complete roof replacement. Be sure to consult your trusted, licensed roofers to determine the best course of action.
