Living in Florida has its benefits with the beautiful, sunny weather and the mild winters, but as Floridians, we are all aware of the heavy rains and hurricane season as well. One of the things that most homeowners will be faced with at one point in time is the need for roofing services. Obviously, if your roof has been damaged due to hurricane winds or downed trees, roof repair or possible roof replacement is inevitable. As a homeowner, there are several other reasons as to why your residential roof would need to be repaired and it is important to know what some warning signs are.
Signs that You are in Need of Roof Repair
- Roof Leaks – Water spots or stains on your ceiling are typically a sign of a leaky roof. Small leaks can turn into big problems. If you notice discoloration in your ceiling, you may have a leak. Contacting your roofing professional can help save you from turning a small repair into a costly one.
- Shingle Granules – Asphalt shingles are made from a fiberglass roofing mat which is saturated in asphalt and impregnated with ceramic granules which provides UV protection. If you are noticing an excess of roofing granules in the gutter or around your home contact a roofing specialist.
- Mold – Mold typically grows in areas where the sun does not shine very often, but it can also be a sign of improper drainage from your gutters or downspouts. If water does not properly drain from your roof it can lead to roof damage and cause roof leaks.
- Cracked or Missing Shingles – Sometimes the severe weather can cause damage to your roof. If you notice any cracked or missing shingles or tiles it is best to seek help from a professional. Holes or open areas can cause moisture to build which can cause rotting to areas of the roofs structure.
The roof of your home is there to protect you and your family against the outdoors and the harsh elements of the weather. Keeping your roof in tip top condition is important for the safety of all in your home. If you are noticing any of these signs of needing roof repair, or any signs of deterioration, it is important to give this your fullest attention and contact a roofing specialist. Spotting these signs and catching a roof leak before it happens or in the early stages can save you from large costly repairs.
