The roofing system is one of the most important parts of the house. It protects you from the elements, such as storms, strong winds, the heat of the sun and insects.
On the other hand, the roofing system can easily be compromised without proper maintenance. No matter how strong the materials, the structure will soon deteriorate when damages accumulate over time. Therefore, you should always call for professional help and have a regular maintenance session for your roof.
Proper inspection is the key to determine whether you already expert help or not. Calling your roofing contractor every time you see roof damages will leave you bankrupt. Therefore, you should be able to identify the severity of the damage.
So, here are some of the top roofing danger signals that can help you avoid bankruptcy.
Cracked, Missing and Broken Shingles
During the rainy and winter season, your siding and shingles suffer a lot of punishment. So, when spring and summer arrives, it’s time to check the home exterior for damages. When you find cracked and missing materials, it’s a clear indication that you already need shingle and siding replacement services.
Discolorations and Stains on the Ceiling
Moisture and accumulated water are the main causes of discoloration on your roof. When you spot stains on your ceiling, it could indicate that water has already leaked into your ceiling. Your deck and underlayment may have suffered from punctures.
Peeling Interior and Exterior Paints
Extreme heat can cause your paint to peel. But, the accumulation of moisture on your roof and walls can be a bigger problem. Your interior and exterior pain will lose its adhesive properties due to moisture seeping into the corners of the walls and roofing materials, giving ways for fungus and molds to grow.In this case, you may need the application of treatments or roof coatings to prevent the problem from worsening.
