A quality roof can last you a few decades, but if you don’t maintain your roof properly, you may find yourself needing a roof replacement sooner than you anticipated. The key to extending your roof’s lifespan for as long as possible is hiring professional roofing services as soon as you notice an issue.
We’ve put together this short list of three of the common signs that you need professional roofing services to help you know when you need to call a roofing contractor:
1. Damaged or missing shingles. Shingles can get blown away, scratched, and otherwise negatively affected by a variety of different causes. Regardless of what damaged your shingles, you won’t want to ignore shingle issues. They’re a sure sign that something is wrong with your roof, so call in a roofing contractor as soon as you notice damaged or missing shingles.
2. Water leaks. If your roof isn’t keeping rainwater out during a storm, something is wrong. One of the most recognizable signs of a roofing issue, water leaks are also one of the most dangerous signs in terms of causing major damage. Water damage can easily lead to foundation problems, as well as mold and mildew growth, so make sure you get leaks handled as soon as possible.
3. Light shining through. There shouldn’t be outdoor light shining through your attic or other areas of your home through the roof. Holes like this need to be patched up quickly to prevent pest problems, rain entering your home, and other issues.
