Do you have stains or wet spots on your ceiling or noticed streaks or bubbling on your interior walls? This could be the evidence of a leak. Some of your most common leaks occur during hard rains and high winds. Areas around chimneys, dormers, pipes and vents are more prone to leaks due to deterioration/loose flashing and flanges. Valleys can also be the source of a leak. Leaves, pine straw etc. can accumulate in these areas and prevent the flow of water. Water that gets backed up can cause leaks. In the winter, after snow and ice begin to melt, water may be trapped and may cause leaks and water damage.
Are you missing shingles? Even missing a single shingle can expose your roof to potential problems. Wind and rain can get under this exposed area and create even more problems.
Do you have cracked or curled shingles? Cracked shingles may be a sign that your roof is worn out and nearing the end of its useful life. Areas where shingles are cracked can compromise the underlayment and expose your roof to potential leaks.
Let our roofing professionals evaluate your roof. Your roof may only need to be repaired, not replaced. We can help you determine the solution that will best meet your needs. Do keep in mind that the average life of a roof depends on the type of shingle that is on your existing roof. If you are experiencing some of the above problems, you may be in need of a new roof. Replacing the roof before it is worn out may keep you from making hasty decisions and allows you time to do your homework.
