9 Signs Your Home May Need a New Roof
How do you know when it is time to replace your home’s roof? Often it takes a catastrophic failure – storm damage, roof deck collapse, or a significant leak – to capture the attention of a homeowner. But there are a number of “red flags” that a professional Alaska roofing contractor can spot that indicate trouble is brewing for your roof.
That is why you should contact a professional Alaska roofer like Integrity Roofing & Windows every 3-5 years for a thorough roof inspection. Here are some of the points we check when inspecting your roof.
- Leaks or spotting on interior ceilings
- Streaks along outside walls
- Staining of rafters in the attic
- Shingles that are cracked or curled
- Missing shingles
- Granule loss on asphalt shingles
- Split wood shingles
- Excessive mold or moss growth
- Penetration of the shingle layer or roof deck
These could be signs of serious structural damage to your home. If caught early, they could be fixed with simple repairs rather than a full roof replacement.
Many homeowners do not notice serious damage to their roof until it is too late. If you see a stain on an interior wall, streaking on outside walls, or a puddle in your basement, serious damage may have already occurred. Don’t let these be the first signs of damage to your roof that you notice!
