Roof maintenance is an integral part of extending a roof’s service life. It’s an effective way of keeping your roof in pristine condition, but it can also be used to find early signs of problems. At All Roofing and Remodeling Co, Inc., we know the four early warning signs your roof needs urgent attention. They are:
1. Loose and Cracked Shingles
Your roof’s asphalt shingles are constantly exposed to the elements, which makes them bound to give way, and, if left unattended, crumble, completely exposing your roof’s inner components to the elements. The best advice we can give is to immediately call us so we can address the broken shingles as soon as possible before the damage gets worse.
2. Sagging Gutters
When your roofers point out your sagging gutters, you should immediately replace them. Sagging gutters are caused by clogging, which usually happens because you haven’t been cleaning your gutters and the extra weight of the debris and standing water have pulled it down. Plus, sagging gutters are a hazard, as they could collapse anytime and fall.
3. Broken Room Flashing
Flashings protect your roof’s vents and chimneys from water intrusion. Since they are your first line of defense from water, they take most of the punishment from the elements and thus get worn out before any roofing component. Corroded, damaged or missing flashings expose your roof to structural damage and open your home to further problems.
4. Ceiling Water Stains
When you start seeing wet marks on your home’s ceiling, it’s time to call in your local roofing contractor. Water stains can be a sign of a broken pipe or that your roof is leaking. You should immediately contact us and we can do a quick roof repair to keep your home dry and cozy before the next rain hits.
