Your Roof is an Effective Communicator

Recognizing red flags with your roof structure is the first step in preventing serious damage, as well as deciding whether or not to enlist a professional for repair work. Luckily, your roof will show signs of a problem before it becomes serious...you just need to pay attention. The following are some of the more common signals that your roof will exhibit in order to indicate further investigation:


Water Damage

Water Spots on Your Ceiling:
This is the most obvious and urgent of indicators. Brown and yellow spots or sagging and cracking on your ceiling mean that water is actively leaking right above your head. Chances are it is a slow leak, so you probably don’t have to worry about the ceiling collapsing before your eyes. Unfortunately, however, slow leaks are the most difficult to find. As soon as you notice water markings on your ceiling, you should contact a professional roof repair contractor and have them inspect your roof. Leaving a slow leak untreated will most definitely lead to serious damage, not to mention the risk of injury to inhabitants of your home.

Water Spots on Exterior Walls:
Water spots and decay on exterior walls indicates a problem with your flashing. These spots and stains may be caused by loose, rusted, or generally damaged flashing, and replacing or repairing this requires a certain amount of roof repair skills. Therefore, your best bet is to call your local roof repair contractor and have them take care of the problem professionally.

Cracked or Cupped Shingles:
Cracked shingles mean that the protective granule coating has worn off, and your shingles are now brittle and no longer able to repel water. Similarly, cupped shingles (corners turned up, or look “wavy”) compromise their ability to properly insulate your roof from water infiltration. Additionally, with cases of cracked or cupped shingles, you will also notice that some shingles may be missing entirely. These very visible symptoms indicate that it is time to re-shingle your roof. Putting off this type of repair will allow water to enter your roof’s structure and cause major damage to its interior. Get a professional roofing contractor in immediately.

While the above symptoms are some of the more common ones, they are only a limited selection. Other causes of leaks, such as holes in roofs caused by the removal of a TV antenna, improperly installed skylights, or a cracked chimney, among others, have equally damaging consequences if not repaired immediately.

In addition to preventing leaks and water damage, having your roof repaired and regularly maintained protects against pest, bird, and rodent infiltration, as well as reduces energy loss.
