What Our Contractors Can Do For You
Signs You Need A Roof Replacement
Roof collapse can cause major property damage. In the worst cases, falling roofing materials can even cause life-threatening injuries to you and your family.
This is why it’s important to call a roofer the moment you notice something unusual about your roof. Here are six primary signs that a roof replacement may be necessary:
Unusual Sounds In Your Home
Creaking or popping sounds are one of the clearest warning signs you need to have your roof replaced.
If you hear animal sounds like squirrels or raccoons, you may have unwelcome visitors in your attic. Since they probably didn’t walk through the front door, you can assume that they went in through gaps in your roofing or broken windows.
Another sound that you need to watch out for is dripping water. These drips may be a sign that your flashing or shingles have a leak.
Problems With Your Shingles
Since your shingles are one of the most important parts of your roof, you should regularly check for any warning signs – especially after a storm. Asphalt shingles can get blown off, leaving your roof with missing pieces. Shingles can also get deformed due to impacts from debris. In this condition, their ability to protect your home from moisture and water damage is diminished.
But even if your asphalt shingles are all still in place, you may notice granules on your driveway or yard. If granules start falling from your shingles, it means that they’re starting to age beyond their useful life.
If you see some missing shingles or falling granules, call a roofer immediately. Gaps in your shingles won’t just put your house at risk – they can also crank up your energy bills due to the reduced insulation.
Cracks Forming In Walls
While it could just be the paint that’s cracked, it could be caused by more severe roof problems that you shouldn’t ignore. If you see large or potentially deep cracks on your walls, you should call a roofing contractor immediately to check for any signs of serious roof issues.
Ceiling Or Roof Sagging
Roof collapses don’t happen instantly – sometimes, parts of the roof materials show strain and signify an imminent collapse. If your roofs or ceilings are showing signs of sagging to a worrying extent, you should schedule an inspection with professional roofers soon.
Bending Roof Supports
Roof supports hold your roofing system up to keep them from collapsing. If you see the materials start to bend, it’s one of the signs that they’re undergoing stress and require immediate repairs.
Water Stains And Ice Dams
Leaky ceilings are a sign that water and moisture are entering through your roofing material. Moisture damage won’t just ruin your floor and furniture, but it may also weaken your ceilings – putting them at risk of collapsing. Visible ice dams are also a cause for concern, as their weight can pull your roof apart.
In more extreme cases, water buildup on your roof can cause problems for other people outside your home, especially road users. Water that spills out into the street can freeze into ice patches in cold weather and potentially cause accidents.
