How to Spot Roof Issues Before it’s too Late

Your roof is one of the most essential elements of your home. It guards you, your family, and your home from wind, water, and other harsh conditions. However, it is also part of the home that is often overlooked until it’s too late. Detecting roof damage early can prevent costly repairs down the line. But do you know what to look for? Here are a few signs it’s time to call a professional roofing company.

· Leaks and Water Stains– The most obvious sign that you have an issue with your roof is dampness. But water stains should never be ignored. They could be due to water intrusion during storms that dry once it’s over.

· Missing or Damaged Shingles– This may be harder to spot from the ground, but it’s important. Consider hiring a drone company to perform a visual inspection of your roof on a regular schedule and after major storms.

· Granules in Gutters– Over time, roof shingles deteriorate. If you notice excess granules in the gutters when you clear them, it may be due to older shingles that need replacing.

· Moss or Algae Growth– You may think that this kind of growth is quaint, but it can also be evidence of trapped moisture and should be researched.

Finally, any water intrusion in the home should be investigated immediately. Issues caught early are normally easy to correct. Taking proactive steps can extend the life of your roof and prevent damage both inside and outside the home.
