Signs Your Roof Needs to be Repaired
McFall Residential Roofing offers reliable roof repairs to help you keep your roof weathertight and ready for storms. It’s important to pay attention to your roof to keep it in top working condition. Ignoring little problems today can lead to major structural dangers in the future.
Below are a few of the most popular signs which means your roof needs to be repaired:
The most likely damage you’ll see after a larger storm is missing shingles. This occurs when wind lifts one flap of the shingle and eventually tears it away. Avoiding this damage really starts when the roof is installed. You should work with a licensed and insured company that will pay attention to detail while the roof is going in place. They should watch the weather to ensure that it’s warm enough for the shingles to adhere together, and they should place the shingles exactly according to manufacturer’s directions to avoid wind damage later.
If you should lose shingles in a storm, invest in roof repairs immediately to limit the damage. We’ll replace the shingles as soon as possible after the storm to avoid damaging the underlying tar paper or roof sheathing.
Water follows the path of least resistance, so a roof leak above the attic will eventually result in water in your living space. When you need these roof repairs, the first signs may show in the form of peeling paint, tiles that are lifting along the walls, or water stains on the ceiling. There will also be obvious signs in the attic, including rust marks along the roofing nails, development of mold or mildew, damp wood and wet insulation. Ignoring this problem will result in rotting wood sheathing and a roof that visibly sags from the exterior of the home.
Many water leaks like this are the result of worn flashing or dried caulking around chimneys and headwalls. Sometimes, finding the source of the leak only takes a few minutes and a basic repair will keep the house dry. However, there are also times when the leak is buried in the field of shingles and you just need to invest in a new roof.
Discoloration on the Roof
Those dark stains that travel down the roof are more than just discoloration that comes with age. This staining occurs when the protective granules on asphalt shingles wash away. The result is a roof that’s less watertight and nearing the end of its lifespan. Discoloration doesn’t always mean you need a new roof so the best thing you can do is call McFall Residential Roofing for a professional inspection.
In general, a roof that needs repair to more than 30 percent of the surface area is a good candidate for replacement. Additionally, replacements also tend to be more cost-effective with roofs that are more than 20 years of age.
Be sure to hire a professional team so that you can enjoy the benefits of great customer service and high-quality work. Call McFall Residential Roofing today to request your inspection and see if your roof needs to have repairs made before the next storm.
