Recognizing and Dealing With Common Roofing Repairs
If you are in need of roof repairs for your Palm Beach or Martin County home or business, you have come to the right place. Yet, what most consumers want to know first is if they are even having a problem worth reporting.
The first thing to keep in mind is that any issue concerning your roof is one that should be reported and assessed by an industry expert. Roof repairs are no joke and should be addressed in a prompt and professional manner.
Failing to address this type of service need is one surefire way to end up quickly with major repair needs or, even worse, the need for premature replacement. Learn how to watch for red flags that could indicate a bigger problem so that you can act accordingly and, in most cases, divert disaster.
Signs You Need Roof Repairs
Are any of these signs showing up at your house and trying to let you know that you need to call in a roofing contractor (blue)?
Missing or damaged shingles are nothing to take lightly. There are a number of reasons you may have damaged or missing shingles but the thing to keep in mind is that even just one can lead to serious problems. Each place on your roof that is not protected by a shingle is a vulnerable place where water intrusion can occur. That means even just one small spot could lead to a leak, mold, rot and, eventually, could compromise the structural integrity of your roofing.
Any sign of a leak is a big deal. So, if you notice water spots in your interior it needs to be addressed immediately. The location of the actual leak is often not in the same place as where the resulting spots appear. Let an industry expert take a look and assess the situation, in order to locate the source of the problem and take care of it before it gets worse.
While a missing shingle may be easy to identify, loose granules may not be. You can often spot these granules in the downspout, where they wash away to. For a new roof, this is not a concern. It's just granules that came loose during installation. However, once you have had your roof in place for a while, if you notice excessive loose granules, call your roofing pro immediately.
When in doubt, make the call. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking care of your roof.
