Roof Repair Services
Your roof protects everything underneath it: you, your family, and your belongings. This is why keeping a roof in great condition needs to be at the top of your list for home repairs.
On average, roof repairs cost significantly less than a full roof replacement, so if you notice signs of damage, be sure to call a professional to fix these problems immediately as they will only get worse with time.
9 Reasons You Need to Repair Your Roof
Being able to spot roofing problems can save some headache if you notice them early enough. Here are the top nine causes for needing a roof repair or replacement:
Limbs that are close to your home should be trimmed back. If not, they can cause damage to your roof during and after storms.
2. Wind, Hail, and Storm Damage
Some damage might not be noticeable right away while other times it will be quite obvious the toll a storm has taken on your roof. It is important to get an inspection done after all major wind and hail storms.
These are easily noticed by water stains on the ceiling or in the attic. They also cause mold and mildew growth in your home which is unhealthy. Leaks need to be addressed right away.
4. Animals or insects
Small animals or insects in your attic or rafters can cause a considerable amount of damage to your roof.
5. Poor Installation
Many roof repair needs are directly related to improper installation. Shoddy quality of service and incorrect installing of materials will lead to roofing problems in the future.
6. Poor maintenance and repairs
Incorrectly cleaning out gutters and removing tree limbs without care can cause more issues than one would think. Some homeowners also will take it upon themselves to attempt roof repairs which can make problems worse.
7. Water Collecting on Your Roof
If you notice water beginning to pond on your roof, it’s time for a repair that will push that water off in the right direction.
8. Improperly Working Ventilation
This can first be noticed by rising energy bills. If heat and/or moisture builds up in your attic, it can begin to cause major damage to your roof.
9. Aging Shingles
Your roof may be getting old and brittle. If you notice shingle granules in the gutter, it is a sign that they are starting to wear out.If you notice missing or cracked shingles, a repair or even replacement will be necessary as the area is exposed and could lead to leaks.
