If properly installed, a roof can last between 20 and 25 years, depending on the quality of materials and craftsmanship. Having an older roof may mean that it needs to be replaced or repaired. Stand outside in direct sunlight and inspect the slopes of your roof. If you notice curling shingles, it’s a sign they’re ready to be replaced. The presence of missing shingles is another indication that your roof needs to be repaired. Free roof inspections confirm the extent of damage and enable you to determine if a replacement is necessary.
Often, water stains appear as brown circles or puddles on your ceiling. A stain may be difficult to notice when it occurs in a darker corner. The presence of discoloration on your ceiling or walls usually indicates you have a leak.
There are times when you see moisture on the walls, but then it goes away. It's a good indication that the leak is present, even if they come and go.
Spots On Exterior Walls
Take a look under your roof line. The flashing of your home may be compromised if you see water spots.
Missing Shingles on the roof doesn't mean your roof is leaking, however, it will increase the chances of a leak occurring through nail penetrations. If you see any shingles missing, give us a call and we can schedule a visit where we look at finding solutions to either high wind vulnerability or ice damns.
