A roof is a system that can be easily forgotten about with so many other aspects of your home that might require repair or maintenance. It is one of the most crucial aspects of your home structure and when your roof starts to deteriorate, you could be putting your entire property at risk for some serious damage. Noticing the signs that your roof needs to be repaired can help prevent major costs down the road. Here’s some top signs that it’s time for your shingle roof to be repaired:
Your Shingles Appear Dark And Dirty
If you notice that your shingles are starting to look weighed down, dark, or dirty, this is often a sign that there is extra moisture or water being retained in every shingle. This could be an indication that the outer granules have worn away or the coating for the shingle is gone.
Shingles Appear Cracked
When your shingles start to crack, there is a chance that they are starting to break up and show gaps in the roofing structure. As soon as you start to notice the signs of cracking shingles, you are due for a repair on your roof.
Your Energy Bill Has Gone Up
If you notice that your energy bill has raised significantly, there could be a leak in your roof or damage to your roofing insulation.
You Notice Light Coming In Through The Attic
If you notice daylight coming in through the attic, you could be prone to leaks or serious damage the next time that there is a storm.
The Deck On Your Roof Is Sagging
Sagging along the roof deck and the attic show problems with water retention and this is often a sign that you are in need of some larger repairs due to moisture.
