Sure Signs Your Roof Needs Repairs

Is it Time to Make Repairs?

As a home or business owner, it’s difficult to know when you need roof repairs until there is a noticeable leak. By the time water is leaking into your building, there is a big problem on the roof that will typically come with a high repair cost. Completing regular inspections of your roof, and knowing what to look for, will help ensure problems are caught early and are less expensive to repair.

Leaks

Of course, the most obvious sign that there is a problem with your roof is when it is raining outside and water begins to drip from the ceiling. At that point, you can be certain that your roof needs to be repaired.

Membrane Separation

 

Roof Separation

Separation occurs over time and should be repaired to prevent leaks.

Over time, separation can occur between some types of roofing materials and inanimate roof fixtures such as chimneys or vents. This can occur due to many factors including heavy foot traffic, frequent high wind and rain, or extreme how and cold weather. Issues with membrane separation can usually be repaired using a patch and adhesive system and can be completed quickly without the use of heavy equipment.

 

Ponding

When water consistently stands in on an area of a roof for long periods of time, it will wear the roofing material down and begin to leak. Ponding can be resolved easily with a protective coating to help keep the settling water from the roof itself.

Damaged Materials

Bad Shingles on Roof

Warped shingles are a sign of needed roof repairs.

Another sure sign that your roof needs repairs are visibly damaged tiles, shingles, or metal. These damages can be caused by inclement weather, animals, debris, and a multitude of other reasons, and can usually be repaired by replacing the damaged pieces.
