Your roofing is a bit deceptive since its surface doesn’t really tell the whole story. In fact, most roofing problems are well hidden, and in most cases, you’ll only find out that your roof needs repair work when you step or slip on a puddle. JAM Roofing lists four warning signs that your roof needs immediate repair work.
1. Roof Leaks
Leaks are a tell-tale sign that your roof needs immediate repair work. This applies to small leaks, too, since they can rapidly grow in size in just a matter of weeks due to a combination of moisture and heat. It can be difficult to tell if you have a leak, so be on the lookout for water marks or puddles. Some leaks are well hidden, and that’s when we suggest you have us do an in-depth inspection on your roofing.
2. The Roof Flashing Is in Disrepair
Flashings are the thin metal strips that you’ll find on your roof’s more vulnerable parts. They are responsible for protecting your roof from water intrusion. As a consequence, they’re one of the fastest parts of the roof to wear out. Our roofing contractor suggest you have this repaired as soon as possible before the next rain or storm arrives.
3. Granules in the Gutters
Granule erosion is another tell-tale sign that your roof needs servicing immediately. The granules in asphalt shingles will get worn down in time, and they’ll usually end up in the gutters. If you notice that there’s a lot of granules in your home’s gutter system, then it’s time to get your roof looked at.
4. Physical Damage to Your Shingles
Finally, if you notice a hairline crack or a chip in your shingles, then you’ll want to get it repaired immediately. One shingle might not seem much, but the first to give way is usually a sign that your shingles are weakening.
