7 Signs Your Roof Needs Repair
When was the last time you checked your roof? We bet it’s a long time. It’s not always apparent to know when we need a roof replacement. Today our post covers the signs to look for if your roof needs attention. The roof is the most common part of a home that gets damaged. Although there is no need to examine it frequently, it’s good to recognise the warning signs of a damaged roof that needs repair. Read on for signs that your roof needs repair especially during this summer when the weather is quite hot.
Bad looking shingles
If you examine your roof and see cracked, curled, broken or darker than usual, you have to consider replacing all of them. Black sand in the gutters is another sign that the shingles are wearing out thus repairing them will buy your roof sometime.
Wear and tear all over roof objects
When a roof is damaged, the area around the vent pipes, chimney and other roof objects are subject to wear first. Carefully examine these areas, and if there are signs of wear, then it’s possible your roof needs repair to fix the situation and avoid leaks.
Presence of debris around the roof perimeter
These are the small pieces that resemble dark coarse sand. They come from deteriorating shingles. Once you start seeing granules in the yard, landscaping, and the gutter, it means they are coming from the roof.
A leaky roof/light in the internal roof cavity
When you start seeing the internal roof cavity without requiring a torch, it shows that the roof is leaking light. Old tiles or iron sheeting combined with boiling weather conditions during this summer are some of the causes that can lead to a leaky roof. These are definite signs that your roof needs repair.
Peeling and blistering of Exterior and interior paint.
A roof that leaks and moisture may cause the peeling off of the exterior paint. The growth of mildew and mold are also signs that your roof is in dire need of repair.
Visible Signs of Sagging
When you see a roof deck that is sagging in numerous spots or rafters that sag downwards instead of being straight it’s time to check your roof for moisture or visible damage.
A steady Rise in Energy Bills
When you start experiencing a sudden spike on your energy bill, i.e., heating and cooling costs it means that either warm or cold air is leaking through the roof. Every time your bill steadily rises, please check your roof for signs of hole or damages and repair them.
