Common Signs that Your Home Needs Roof Repair


It's best to inspect your roof twice per year. This will inform you of any damage, as well as signs of standard wear and tear. Because it is quite dangerous to walk around on a rooftop, many homeowners prefer to leave this task to a professional. There are certain signs that mean you should have a roofer conduct repairs before the problem worsens and you end up with a much more expensive project on your hands. Here are five signs that it's time for residential roof repair.

Shingle Damage

During a windstorm, shingles can be damaged or even go flying away. Thankfully, replacing individual asphalt shingle tiles is quite simple, but it does need to be done quickly so you don't risk water seeping into your home and causing damage. If shingles are dilapidated throughout your roof, then it could be time for roof replacement.

Algae/Moss

Though algae and moss aren't as much of an issue in drier climates, they can still cause issues. Algae can cause roof degradation that requires service. Algae/moss also looks unattractive and homeowners generally want to remove it for aesthetic purposes.

Sagging

No matter your type of roof, it should maintain straight lines. If it appears your roof is starting to sag, you'll want to have an experienced roofer conduct an inspection. This could mean that the frame needs repair.

Clogged Gutters

While leaves and other plant matter are commonly to blame for clogged gutters, it's also possible for clogs to occur due to roofing materials that have broken down and washed into the gutters. This is known to happen with asphalt shingles as they approach the end of their lifespan.

Light in the Attic

If sunlight is shining into your attic, then there are likely some gaps in your roofing that need to be addressed. Such gaps could allow moisture into the home, which could result in water damage.
