5 Signs Your Roof Needs Immediate Repairs

Roof repair is the preferred option over roof replacement. If done in a timely manner, repairs will only cost a fraction of what a roof replacement would have cost and can also increase your roof’s life span. But, how do you know if your roof needs repairs? As an expert roofing contractor that specializes in both, The Roofing Company shares with you a list of signs that you may need to have your roof repaired soon.

5 Signs Your Roof Needs Immediate Repairs

  1. Damaged or Missing Shingles – One of the more obvious indicators is if your roof has suffered damage from storms, high winds or impact damage from hail and debris. If some of the shingles came off for no apparent reason, it’s probably due to improper installation. Be sure to get this corrected as soon as possible.

  1. Sagging Roofline – A sagging roofline indicates that there is damage to the underlying structure, which should be addressed immediately. Broken trusses or rafters would place unnecessary pressure on other parts of the roof, which could lead to collapse.

  1. Ice damaged shingle or metal roofing. – Ice dams (and slides) can cause severe damage to your building by introducing roof leaks (includes damage to underlying insulation, sheathing, attic space, drywall, etc) or in mechanical damage/abrasion to the roofing material itself.

  1. Water Stains on the Ceiling – Water stains indicate a severe roof leak and one that should be fixed as soon as possible. It is difficult to determine the extent of a roof leak visually as leaks rarely go straight down. Some of the attic insulation may also be damaged by the leak, so consider the possibility that you may also need to have some of the attic insulation replaced.

  1. Cupping, Curling or Cracked Shingles – Ultra violet rays, excessive heat in attics, and wintertime freeze/thaw cycles will cause premature aging and damage to your shingles.
