Major Signs You Need a Roof Repair

At some point, your roof will eventually fail and require repairs. When it does, it helps to recognize the major signs you need a roof repair, so you can get it fixed right away and avoid further damage.

Major Signs You Need a Roof Repair:

1. Problems in the Attic

Visible sunlight from your roof or attic indicates the roof is cracked, or there’s a hole in the roof. However, when there’s mold or rotting wood in the attic, you may be dealing with a hidden leak.

If this is the case, we recommend contacting a roofing contractor immediately, rather than fixing it yourself.

2. Water damage

If the internal walls in your home are damaged, getting your roof inspected is a smart move. Your roof may be leaking. Watch out for dark spots and signs of discoloration.

A damaged roof or poor ventilation may also lead to mold and mildew. Water damage often leads to structural damage, as well.

3. Loose or missing shingles

Easy to spot on the ground, loose or missing shingles – often caused by poor installation, heavy rain, hail, and high winds- may cause structural damage if neglected. When a shingle that’s missing is covering a seam between two other shingles, a leak is also more likely to occur.

While missing shingles sometimes indicate your roof needs replacing, it’s fairly inexpensive to fix or maintain.

4. Sagging roof

Your roof may sag for many reasons, including insufficient internal bracing, having too many layers or shingles, etc. Ice, wind, and snow may even lead to sagging since they can stress your roof even more.

A sagging roof can be fixed by adding struts and support or replacing the shingles.

5. Discolored roof

Algae is the most common cause of roof discoloration. But asphalt bleed-through or rust stains may cause discoloration, too, diminishing your roof’s visual and aesthetic appeal.

Rust and algae must be chemically treated and removed by an experienced roofer.

6. Leaky or clogged gutter

For your gutters to work properly, they need to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.

With clogged gutters or downspouts, water will back up, leading to soil erosion and water damage.
