10 Warning Signs Your Roof Needs Fixing

Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home, providing protection and shelter from the elements. But wear and tear can take its toll over time, weakening its integrity and potentially leading to more serious issues and the urgent need for a professional roofing company. To preserve its longevity and safety, you must remain aware of signs that indicate it may require fixing. Milledge Roofing Company has compiled this list of 10 sure indicators that your roof needs attention.

The Roof Is More Than 15 Years Old

Once a roof reaches 15 years or older, it often needs attention and repairs to remain functional and durable. Over time, roofing materials can deteriorate under harsh sunlight, rain, wind, and temperature fluctuations, leading to curling shingles, blistering shingles, or curling edges, which compromise its ability to protect homes against water damage as well as missing ones, creating vulnerabilities or leading to increased moisture retentive properties of moss accumulation on its surface. When this happens, it needs urgent repair work completed asap to maintain both functionality and durability of its lifelong durability and performance.

Curling, Buckling, or Blistering Shingles

Regularly inspect your roof for curling, buckling, or blistering shingles caused by age, improper installation, or exposure to harsh weather conditions. Damaged shingles could impede its ability to provide optimal protection for your home.

Shingles Are Missing

If some shingles have come loose from your roof, this should be taken as an alarm bell for immediate attention. Missing shingles allow water to seep into the structure and may lead to leaks and further damage that requires immediate attention.

Check Your Eavestroughs

Inspect your eavestroughs regularly for debris from roof granules that have shed from your shingles. Excessive granule loss indicates roof degradation and is usually seen on older roofs that have reached their lifespan limits.

Moss Is Growing On the Roof

Although moss may appear harmless initially, its presence can cause significant damage if left unattended. Moss retains moisture that weakens shingles and promotes rot. Should you detect signs of moss growth on your roof, it must be addressed quickly to stop further deterioration and further decay.

Light Shining Through Roof Boards

At any point during the day, visit your attic and look for signs of daylight penetrating through roof boards. If light can be seen coming in through these gaps or openings, which indicates your roof has openings that allow water to infiltrate, it could cause significant damage.

Does Your Attic Have Moisture or Mildew

A damp or mildewy attic indicates roof issues, with moisture entering through damaged roofing materials, causing mold and mildew growth that threatens its structural integrity and health risks.

Rising Energy Bills With No Probable Cause

If your energy costs have been steadily increasing with no apparent explanation, a possible cause could be an inefficient roof. An improperly functioning roof allows heat or cool air to escape through cracks in its construction, prompting HVAC systems to work harder - thus increasing energy usage and consumption.

Look Out for Water Leakage in the Attic or Upper Floors

Carefully examine both your attic and upper floors for any signs of water leakage, such as discolored spots on walls or ceilings that indicate water stains or discolorations from leakage, to detect any structural issues and mold growth which could have arisen as a result of roof damage. Leakages must be dealt with promptly to prevent further problems or mold growth in your home.

Gravel in Your Gutters

If you notice gravel or coarse granules accumulating in your gutters, this could indicate that the protective coating on your roof has worn away and become less effective at shielding against external influences. Over time this could result in faster aging and decreased effectiveness at protecting against potential threats to your home's protection from environmental elements.
