A well-cared for roof can potentially last over 25 years. That is why most people do not pay a lot of attention to their roof. However, your roof is an essential part of your home, so you definitely want to look out for signs that suggest repair is necessary.
Your shingles help protect your roof and your home. If your shingles are damaged, then you will need to call a roofing professional as soon as possible. Shingles that are wet, curled or dirty are damaged.
Wet Spots And Algae Growth
You may also want to pay close attention to the color of your roof. If you notice streaks and dark spots, then your roof likely needs to be repaired. This could also be a sign that algae is growing on your roof.
Water Leaking Into Your Home
If there is water leaking in your home, then your roof is not doing its job. If you have a lot of insulation in your attic, then you may not notice that your roof is leaking until extensive damage has been done. Look for mold and mildew in the attic and crawl spaces. This is a sign that your roof is leaking.
High Energy Bills
High energy bills are something that many people choose to ignore because they can be caused by a number of things. However, your roof may be to blame for higher energy bills. If your roof is over 20 years-old, then you may need to have it replaced.
Light Shining Through
If you notice that light is shining through your roof, then this is a sign that your roof needs work done on it. You should go to the top of your attic on a sunny day. If you can see sunlight coming through the attic, then you need to call our roofing professionals.
