Year in and year out, the roof of your home shields you from the harsh elements. All that exposure, naturally, takes a toll on it at some point in time. Not a lot of homeowners realize, however, that their roofing also talks to them all year round. Roofing Solutions shares some warning signs that your roof may be trying to give you.
1. Your Roof is Leaking
Water spots may sometimes appear on the ceiling. You may not immediately notice them but those stains are the product of constant water exposure. Make it a point to address them ASAP as leaks have a way of turning into major problems down the road.
2. Your Shingles are at the End of Their Lifespan
It’s a red flag when you see excessive amounts of granules in your gutters or your downspouts. This can only mean that you’ll need a replacement roof soon. These granules protect your home from harmful UV rays. When they go, your roof will become brittle and susceptible to damage.
3. The Flashing is Rusted, Loose, or Altogether Damaged
Professional roofing companies like us often deal with failing flashing. Whenever water spots appear on your exterior walls, it means that your flashing is compromised. This could either be because it has come loose, is damaged, or has succumbed to corrosion.
4. There is Algae on Your Shingles
Black stains on your roof are unsightly, for sure. However, they are only a precursor to a more serious problem. Black stains often indicate algae growth on your roof. Have your roofer deal with it quickly as it can take off granules and even penetrate into your attic.
5. Your Attic Lacks Ventilation
Cupping shingles mean only one thing: your attic isn’t getting enough ventilation. Quick re-shingling can solve this problem, which is nothing your trusted roofing company can’t handle.
