3 Signs That You Need Roof Repairs For Your Shingled Roof
Every home and business has a roof, and many use shingles. Shingle roofing comes in various styles, shapes, and sizes, and can be a great investment. However, as with many things, a shingled roof has a definite lifespan.
Spotting the signs of critical roof damage can protect you against critical failure in the future. Let’s explore some of the most prominent signs and symptoms of roof damage that may signal your need for roof repair.
1. Discoloration of the shingles
One of the easiest ways to spot potential trouble with your roof is from the discoloration or stains on your asphalt shingling. Discolored shingles:
- Are often seen on older roofs.
- Happen more when trees hang over roofs or on portions of roofs that tend to be shaded from the sun.
- May indicate that shingles are near the end of their service life.
- Might be hiding small leaks that can damage the wood under the shingles, causing structural damage and subsequently forcing expensive repairs.
2. Curled or cracking shingles
Curled or cracking shingles increase the chances that water might find its way into the home to cause damage.
- May require closer inspection for proper identification.
- May indicate the possibility of other problems that need to be addressed.
- Are often found on older roofs, even if the roofs were installed properly.
- Tend to admit water into the home, potentially causing more significant problems if not identified early.
- May be a sign that the roof is near the end of its lifespan, especially around 12-15 years old.
3. Visible signs of leaking
A definite sign of roof trouble is internal leaking.
- Might only be visible in an attic inspection.
- Might be identified by wetness or staining of the ceiling.
- Needs immediate repairs to keep the problem from getting worse.
- Might predict other leaks forming in other areas.
- Might indicate that the entire roof needs replacement
