Here at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc., we understand that you want your home’s roof to last for as long as possible. A complete roof replacement, while it will add value to your home, also has a high upfront cost, and is inconvenient to boot. You can extend the life of your existing roof and put off having to replace it by paying attention to its condition and having it repaired promptly when it displays signs of wear or damage. In this article, our team at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. will describe three warning signs that indicate that you might need roof repair.
- Shingles are Curled, Cracked, or Missing- The shingles on your roof should lay flat, and cover its entire surface with no gaps or cracks. If you notice your shingles starting to develop cracks or curl up at the edges, or if you find a patch where the shingles have disappeared, you probably need roof repair. Any of these problems creates openings where water can penetrate your roof and cause further damage, so you should get professionals on the job as soon as possible.
- Chimney and Other Roof Objects Show Signs of Wear- When checking whether you need roof repair, pay close attention to the chimney, vent pipes, and other roof objects. These areas are the first to wear out, and can cause further problems if the wear is left unaddressed. If you catch the signs early, however, repairs should do the trick, and prevent the damage from spreading to other areas.
- Ceiling or Walls are Stained- The effects of roof damage aren’t limited to the exterior of your home, and neither are the warning signs. If you notice your ceiling developing stains, even small ones, they might be caused by leaks in the roof. Take a few minutes every now and then to check your ceilings and walls for such stains, and call in a roof repair technician if you find any.
