If you notice water stains, standing water, or moisture in your attic during or after it rains, you most likely have a leak in your roof. If you take too long to fix leaks, the integrity of your entire roof will be negatively affected.
Damaged shingles are common hurricane roof damage – something we know a lot about in Florida and Louisiana. After a storm, check for damaged or missing shingles. Also make a point to check for curled edges or dark pigmentation on your shingles, as those signs mean they’re close to needing replacement.
Moisture makes paint peel, so if you notice peeling paint along your roofline, your roof could be collecting water. You might also notice discolored sections on your roof (portions of gray, yellow, or brown) or paint peeling along the walls close to the roof.
When you look at your roof, it should be even with straight lines. If your rafters are bending or sagging, that might mean water is collecting somewhere. Get in touch with Veteran’s Roofing for an inspection and we’ll locate the problem.
If you notice sandy granules (pieces of shingle) in your gutters, this means that your shingles are nearing the end of their lifespan, and they won’t serve you for much longer.
If sunlight is coming in where it shouldn’t, that’s probably due to cracks or holes in your roof – and such damage needs attention right away, most likely in the form of a roof patch.
If your energy bill skyrockets without any noticeable reason, warm or cool air might be escaping your home through cracks in the roof – this makes your HVAC system work harder, which makes for higher energy costs.
