Your roof plays an important role in protecting your family and belongings, even though you may not think about it often. You can reduce the chance that a problem will worsen and require major repairs by being proactive in addressing minor issues. Roof damage can be easily detected. Here are five signs that show you need to get roof repair done:
Shingles that are damaged
You can replace individual shingles if you notice that only a few of your shingles have cracked or are otherwise damaged. If the problem is severe, you may need a roof replacement.
Clogged up gutters
Next time you clean out your gutters, be aware of what you are removing. You may need to make repairs as roofing materials can become brittle and could be swept into your gutters by a storm. Asphalt roofing materials are fragile when nearing the end of their recommended lifespan. Get professional gutter services to take better care of your roof and gutters all year long.
Your roof should be straight regardless of the pitch. You should contact a professional roofer to assess the situation and recommend any actions. If the problem is severe, extensive roofing repairs may be necessary.
Light in the attic
It is likely that you need to make roofing repairs if you can see the sun shining through your attic. Water can seep through gaps in roofing materials, which can cause damage to your home’s interior.
Algae and moss
Algae and moss growth on your roof is an indicator of excess moisture. It’s also a sign that it’s time to get some attention. This problem is less common in dry climates but it’s more prevalent in homes that have not been maintained for many years.
