Roofing Problems – Be aware of these Common Roofing Problems. No one plans for roofing problems and they always seem to happen at the worst possible time. Making proper roof repairs before the problems get worse can save you money in the long run; as roofing repairs can become more expensive if repairs are put off.
Here are some common roofing problems you should be aware of:
Missing or damaged shingles – If you notice dark, patchy areas on your roof, this is usually a sign of damaged or missing roof shingles. This can be due to many different things including weather damage such as wind and rain, small animals running across your roof or just old worn out roofing materials. What usually happens is the sealant under the shingle fails due to weather exposure, animals or just old age. Once they become old and brittle, the shingles will loosen and fall off leaving these dark patchy areas.
Water Spots – Most people are not aware they have a roof leak until they notice water spots on the ceiling or walls. Once these water spots are noticeable the roof leak has already reached the advanced stage. Even though you may see water leaks in one part of your home’s ceiling or walls, the source of the leak is most likely in a different area of the roof. This is because Water typically travels along your roof panels before dripping onto your insulation, and then on your ceiling or down your walls. Since it may be difficult to determine exactly where the leak is; it’s always best to schedule a roof inspection with a roofing professional to be sure.
Worn Out Shingles – If you start noticing an excessive amount of roofing granules from your shingles on the ground by the downspout, this could be a sign it’s time to replace your shingles. These shedding granules could be a sign that your roofing shingles are deteriorating. The granules of the roofing shingle help to protect your shingles from the sun’s harmful UV rays; so when these granules start falling off, your shingles can become brittle and eventually crack. This is a sign it’s time to re-roof your home.
Roofing shingles are designed to protect the structural part of the roof below the shingles. But, years of constant exposure to the elements will eventually take their toll on the roofing shingles. Water stains, damaged or missing shingles can all be signs that can point to roofing problems. It’s important to keep an eye out for these signs and act before the problem gets worse.
