How Can A Homeowner Recognize When A Roof System Has Problems?

Recognize When Your Roof Has Problems

All too often, roof system problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs.  Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections often can uncover cracked, warped or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof system problems.  Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

It is important to isolate the problem area and get it fixed as soon as possible.  Remember, it is important to have regular roof inspections done to ensure its integrity isn’t compromised.

Most work should not be done yourself.  Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace roof systems. You can damage your roof system by using improper roofing techniques and severely injure yourself by falling off or through the roof.

Maintenance performed by home and building owners should be confined to inspecting roof systems during the fall and spring to check for cracked or curling shingles and cleaning gutters filled with dead leaves and other debris.

Contact a professional roofing contractor as soon as possible that will advise you on the best course of action for your roof.
