Signs Your Roof Needs Repairs

Roof Leaks or Gaps

Even small roof leaks can lead to increased home heating costs, animal infestations and water damages. Small leaks can also lead to much larger damages and repair needs.  Having these leaks or gaps sealed and repaired, before they enlarge or otherwise worsen, saves you time and money. If you have any concerns about roof leaks or gaps in your roof system, contact a professional immediately. Gaps can be hard to find and can become much worse before they are easily seen via ceiling water damages or large holes visible from ground level. It is a sound preventative measure to have your roof inspected after major hail or windstorms.

Missing Or Damaged Shingles

If you notice a small number of shingles missing, cracked, buckled or discoloured, your roof will require shingle replacement services. Missing shingles expose roof underlayment, making the roof very vulnerable to further damages. When a shingle becomes dislodged, it also depletes the security of all those it was connected to. This can lead to increasing numbers of shingles falling off if the missing few are not replaced in a timely manner.

Missing Or Damaged Flashing

Flashing is a metal sheet that borders the chimney, vents and often the roof borders. If flashing becomes rusted, damaged or missing, it can leave a variety of roof materials exposed. Missing flashing can lead to roof leaks as well as damaged roof vents.

Pooling Water

After rain or snow melt, do you notice water pooling on some areas of your roof? Structural integrity issues are often the cause of roof slopes and water pools. If a sloping roof is found early, it can often be repaired. Though, if a roof slope is left to worsen the property and moisture damage can leave the roof damaged beyond repair.

Roof repair services can be ideal for fixing a number of individual damages as well as for preventing the need for full replacements.
