Often times, customers don’t think about roofing problems unless they are already noticing them. From leaks, or paint peeling inside, there are a multitude of things that can go wrong with your roof. We’re here to tell you some of the leading causes of roofing issues, as well as some of the signs that your roof might need a roofing professional to look at.
Despite your best efforts, nature has a way of doing damage to your roof and necessitating roof repair. In fact, even the sun has a way of aging everything that goes into assembling the roof. Rain and wind are a nasty combination, as wind has a tendency to pull up the edges of shingles, thus allowing for water to more easily enter into your home. Water can damage walls, ceilings, insulation, and even electrical systems; so if there are broken or even missing shingles on your roof, the results could become readily apparent very quickly.
Another severe issue that is common in the Central Florida area is damage caused by trees. As leaves fall in the fall to winter months, there is a threat of moisture buildup. They will pile together, or stick in gutters, where they absorb and retain water that might fall or condensate in the early mornings. The leading issue with this is that this moisture could potentially cause rot or even gutter damage. Of course, with trees come branches, and when it comes to roofing problems, branches can be a great irritant. Whether they scratch against the roof, or fall onto it, the damage to roofing materials has already been done.
While many of the signs to a failing roof are obvious, they are still worth noting because they should be taken care of as soon as possible. Leaks during rainstorms or snowy weather can also lead to water stains on interior ceilings in addition to the dripping water. This damage can develop into peeling paint on walls or ceilings. If there has been a substantial amount of rain in a particular season, it’s not a bad idea to have the roof looked at because it’s better to catch the early signs rather than let them become full blown problems.
Shingles are an integral part of any roof, but they can also show signs of damage very quickly. If they are curling up, blistering, buckling, or you’re seeing them in gutters or in the yard, there’s a good chance for the other issues to start arising. We’re sure that you want your roof to look beautiful all the time and poor quality shingles can be a great detriment to that desire. Proper maintenance can go a long way in keeping your roof healthy and looking great for a very long time.
One sign that a lot of customers don’t correlate with poor roofing is temperature regulation. If the air conditioner seems to be running more than usual, or doesn’t seem to be working very well, then there’s a good chance that there might be exposure in the roof that is letting air escape. The same goes for heating in these colder months. If you’ve been noticing that the temperature tends to be an issue, then it might be a good idea to have your roof looked at by a professional.
