With colder weather and storm season approaching quickly, your roof will be what protects the rest of your house, so you’ll want to make sure it’s in tip-top shape! While roofs can last you decades at a time, damage can cause severe and costly problems for your home at any time.
Here are some signs to look for that will tell you that you need to have your roof looked at by a professional:
Curling or Missing Shingles
One of the telltale signs that your roof is deteriorating is if you notice shingles are starting to curl around the edges or shingles are missing and have fallen off your house. If you notice any patches of black asphalt exposed on the roof, it means that shingles are missing from that spot.
Another sign of shingles aging is when granules fall off. One way you can tell if this is happening is by checking the gutters and downspouts for small granules that have ended up there after falling off the shingles.
Missing or Cracked Tiles
If you have a tile roof, cracked or missing tiles are a sign that some renovations are needed. Cracked or missing tiles can lead to leaks and serious damage.
Ceiling Stains or Leaks
If you notice any stains on your ceiling, it could be a sign that a leak has sprung. The stain will likely be yellowish or brownish and should tell you that you need to have your roof looked at quickly.
Sounds of Wind From Inside
Another sign of an unstable roof would be the sound of the wind whistling from inside the house. This could mean shingles or tiles are missing, or there is a hole.
It’s Been a While…
If it has been a long time, more than 2 decades, since you’ve had your roof done, it’s time to get an inspection done. In that time, your roof has taken a lot of hits from weather, debris, and regular wear and tear.
