As a homeowner replacing your entire roof can be a frightening thought. Roof repairs are always the preferred option. Repairs not only cost the fraction of what a roof replacement cost, but they can be done fairly quickly and help increase your roof’s life span.
Signs your roof is in need of immediate repair:
Water stains or discoloration on walls or ceilings can be a big sign that moisture is getting through your roof. You will want to call a licensed roofer to do an inspection and complete a water test at the first sight of this to hopefully avoid an even more costly repair. A water test helps our roof experts determine where the leak is generating from on the roof and how to best repair your roof.
Curling, Cracking, and Missing Shingles
Your shingles display signs of aging by curling which is where the edges or the center of your roof shingles are coming upward. This is a clear indicator new shingles need to be installed. If your shingles are cracking, this is typically caused by strong wind from storms. So, you will want to ask a trusted roofer what shingles are better to withstand high winds.
A sagging roofline signifies that there is damage to the underlying structure. The trusses or rafters may be wet from leaking moisture and you will want to address this immediately with a licensed roofer. If the broken trusses or rafters are placing any unnecessary pressure on other parts of your roof system, it could lead to a collapse.
Sunlight Peering into Attic
If you are in your attic during the day and see streams of light coming in, this is a huge red flag that your roof needs repairs because you potentially have holes in your roof. If light can get in, so can rain, hail, and wind drafts. Minor tears can be repaired but major ones could require a complete roof replacement. Contacting a licensed and trusted roofer can help you determine what the best course of action is for your roof.
