Warning Signs You Need Roof Repair

If you pay attention, you can learn to recognize signs of gradual damage so you can call for roof repair services at the right time. Keep reading to learn about a few of the most common warning signs you need roof repair services.

  • Damaged Shingles – Over time, your shingles will become worn out due to exposure to the wind, sun, and rain. If your shingles are starting to curl up at the edges, or you notice granules of asphalt shedding into your gutters, it means they are nearing the end of their lifespan. Fortunately, our roof repair team can replace damaged shingles to extend the life of your roof.
  • Moss Growth – Another sign you need roof repair is the presence of moss (or other organisms, such as mildew or algae) on your roof. These organisms need a damp environment to survive, and their presence on your roof indicates moisture is seeping under your shingles instead of flowing over the roof and away.
  • Increased Energy Bills – A third indicator you need roofing repair can be seen in your energy bills. If your bills have increased substantially, but you haven’t changed your habits to match, it means part of your building is no longer as efficient as it used to be. In many cases, the culprit is your roof, which can lose its effectiveness as an insulator over time.

It’s always best to handle roof repairs as soon as possible to avoid a more extensive and costly service later down the line. Reach out today if you’ve noticed signs that your roof is wearing out and in need of roof repair services.
