4 Signs You Might Need Roof Repairs

Your roof is a critical part of your home. Protecting you from the elements all year round, your roof takes the brunt of any weather that comes your way. Exposure from the elements can lead to wear and tear, and sometimes that can lead to issues that need repaired. It isn’t always obvious when your roof needs a fix, but here are some indicators that it may be time to call a roofer!

 

1. It Looks Worn

 

It might seem obvious, but if your roof looks bad, that might indicate it needs a repair. When your shingles appear damp and worn, it means they’re holding moisture and no longer fully able to do their job. If the shingles are cracked or curling up at the corners, they are at a point that they may fall out and will need fixed or replaced.

 

2. You Have A Leak

 

Do you have any ceiling wet stains? Though you may not notice them at first, wet spots can be the first indicator that precipitation is leaking through your roof and into your ceiling. You will want to get this fixed as soon as you notice it to prevent further water damage to your house interior.

 

3. The Roof Is Sagging

 

If you roof isn’t in a straight line, it is sagging. This means it is definitely time to call a roofing company because serious structural damage can occur if sagging is not remedied.

 

4. You Can See Light

 

This is the one time you don’t want to see the light - and that is when you are looking up at your roof from the inside. If light can penetrate your roof, so can plenty of other things. If you ever have any light leaks, get the crack filled as soon as possible.
