Spring is here, which means warmer temperatures, more sunshine, and blooming flowers… and of course, spring storms. The change of seasons can bring many problems to your roof. It’s crucial to be aware of signs your roof might need repair. Following are five signs that you should call Southeastern Roofing to inspect your roof and catch problems early.
1. Shingle Damage
Are there missing or cracked shingles on your roof? These can indicate that your roof needs repair. Springtime weather in Central Georgia can be unpredictable. A heavy thunderstorm could easily cause damage to shingles. It’s crucial to immediately address any damage to your roof shingles to prevent further damage and higher costs.
2. Water Stains and Leaks
A leaky roof could cause water stains to appear on interior walls and ceilings. There are many reasons why your roof could leak, such as damaged flashing or cracked shingles. Water damage can cause mold growth, structural damage and expensive repairs if it isn’t addressed quickly. A roof inspection is in order if you suspect a leak.
3. Sagging Roof
Your roof may be sagging or sinking in some areas. This is an indication that it needs to be repaired. Poor ventilation, water damage and even a defective roof deck can all lead to a sagging roof. A sagging roof is not only unsightly, it can also cause problems. If left unresolved, it can potentially put you and your family in danger from a collapse.
4. Granules in your Gutters
Do you see granules in your gutters? This could indicate that your roof’s roofing materials are starting to deteriorate. As shingles age, weather, and become less durable, their protective granules can begin to shed off the roof into the gutters. You should check your gutters for excessive granules. This is a sure sign your roof is old and might need repair or replacement.
5. High Energy Bills
Are your energy bills higher than normal? Your roof may not be properly ventilated. Poorly ventilated roofs can trap heat and moisture, which can lead to increased energy bills and possible roof damage. Southeastern Roofing can inspect your roof if you suspect poor ventilation.
These five signs are strong indicators your roof needs repairs. These issues can be addressed early to prevent future damage and expensive repairs.
