Common Signs Of Major Roof Damage

Roofs require regular maintenance to safeguard it from damages caused by adverse weather, flying debris or old age. Signs of roofing problems include holes in the roof, split seams, missing shingles among others. If you learn how to identify roof problems early, this can help reduce extensive damage and save on the costs of repair.

Pay attention to these common signs of roof damage and act before the problem falls out of hand:

Sagging or stained ceiling

This is an indication of water damage that mostly results from leaky roofs. Accumulation of water on the ceiling compresses the insulation material, and it can also break the roof deck. This may require exterior renovation and repair by a roofing contractor.

Growth of algae and mold

This shows major roof damage as mold and algae only grow where moisture settles on the roof. The roof may be leaking somewhere, and this may be time to make your roof moisture-resistant to avert further damages.

Curling or rotting shingles

Curling occurs when there is improper ventilation or when the roof is not correctly installed. It may also mean that old roof shingles were not removed when new ones were installed. Thus, if you notice curled, corroded, or rotten shingles, it is a sign that you need a new roof.

Water spots on exterior walls

Water stains on exterior walls indicate a severe damage on the step flashing-- where the roof and the wall meet. It may be rusty, loose or severely damaged, causing water to trickle downwards. Replacement requires a roofing expert to ensure the roof and the sidewall integrate properly.

Roof shingles on the yard

The presence of roof shingles scattered in your yard after a hail or wind means serious roof damage. Besides, cracking shingles may indicate prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. This calls for roof replacement since the shingles may be old and worn out.

Torn chimney flashing

Your chimney is likely to tear since it is held on the roof by means of cement and tar. When you notice damaged or loose joints, it may need replacement with a long term, water tight fitting system.

Granules in gutters

Roof gutters that are clogged with roof shingles are likely to occur when granules are worn out. The roof shingles may have reached their life cycle and in need of replacement.

The above are just a few signs of roof damage—there are much more. No matter how small a hitch might be, it leads to large, expensive problems if left unchecked. Thus, if you notice any of the danger signs, call a roofing contractor immediately to inspect your roof and have it repaired or replaced.
