Your roof is an essential part of your house. However, there are times when you’re bound to need roofing services. Watch for these signs telling you it’s time to contact a local roofing company.
According to the Roofer’s Guild, most roofs will last 25-50 years. You must call a local roofer for regular inspections as soon as you hit the minimum year. Old roofs are more likely to need repairs with missing shingles and other significant problems.
When your roof first starts to sag, you’ll notice that it looks like it has a small indentation. Usually, the indentation is in the middle of the roof. As time progresses, it’s common for this to get worse. It’s typically a sign of a problem with the structural beams under the roof. Homeowners who don’t correct this risk their roof collapsing.
There are several ways to spot missing shingles. The most obvious way you’ll realize you have missing shingles is if you see them lying in your yard or around your house. You can also head into your attic or crawlspace to check for patches of daylight. If you can see the light coming through, it’s a sign of a problem. If you don’t get this fixed, it can lead to water leaks.
It’s common to see severe damage after harsh weather incidents. For example, heavy winds may knock shingles loose. Heavy branches can fall on your roof, damaging shingles and the structure of your roof. Hail can cause significant dents, especially if you have a metal roof. Contact roofing services as soon as you see signs of damage on your roof.
Call a roofing company immediately if you notice mold growing in your attic. This is a sign that water is leaking through your roof. Sometimes, the leak is so small that you don’t see patches of daylight or notice missing shingles. Without repairs, the problem will continue to worsen. Toxic mold will spread, creating a health hazard for everyone inside the house.
