It is pretty much a no-brainer that you need to call one of your local roofers if you have multiple buckets around the house catching water every time it rains. However, there are a few other symptoms that you may have going on that you don’t realize also point to the fact you need roof repair or replacement. Regular inspections will help you stay on top of protecting your home and your belongings. Here’s what to watch for:
- Debris in the gutters. Shingles are built with a granulated coating that stays in place pretty well for the lifetime of the product. Eventually, however, the granules will start to become loose, and you’ll find them in the gutters and on the ground under the downspouts. Watch for this each time you clean the gutters, and when you begin to see an excessive amount, it is time for a roof replacement, as your shingles are no longer doing a proper job of protecting your home.
- Damaged or missing shingles. The shingles themselves can also deteriorate and begin to come off your roof. They may also curl or buckle, which is easily noticed from the ground. These are both signs that your roof needs to be replaced. Damaged shingles, on the other hand, may just need to be replaced if the rest of the roof is in good condition. Our local roofers can tell you more about which is the case with your roof. Calling us to inspect your roof is safer than climbing up on a ladder yourself, and our trained eyes will be able to assess the situation more thoroughly.
