Getting your roof inspected correctly and repaired can be a headache if you don’t know the proper signs. Luckily for you, Tollefson Bros of Maple Grove, MN can inspect your roof to ensure the best route to take when and if your roof needs repairs.
Even though you may not see a leak it doesn’t mean you still don’t need to make some repairs to prevent leaking in the future.
Signs Your Roof Is Ready For Repair:
Missing or Torn Shingles
If you notice shingles on your roof are peeling back or are completely missing, you should make sure that the roof underneath isn’t rotting or exposed to weathering. This can be a disaster if not repaired soon because not only has it left your roof vulnerable to the elements, now the shingles around that area are acceptable to eventually wearing and falling off, allowing the more exposure to weather.
Rusted or Missing Flashing
If you noticed the metal flashing around your vents or at the peak of your roof that’s rusted or missing you need to have this repaired right away. Again, this exposed the roof to weather and without proper flashing, it’s much easier to start leaking. There’s already a hole cut into your roof for the vent and at the peak, the wood doesn’t stop it. This allows for the perfect spot to start a leak.
Check Your Gutters
If you’re cleaning your gutters or drain pipes and notice the wood rotting, this is another sign that leaking could be in your future if it isn’t already.
If any of the above has happened then you need to make sure the leaking hasn’t become bad enough to ruin the inside of your home. Look for any discoloration on your walls or ceilings especially around your bathroom or kitchen vents. If there’s discoloration from water damage then you know for sure that your roof is leaking and needs repair immediately.
This is just the beginning of the signs your roof needs a repair. There are many things that you won’t be able to notice or check yourself without a professional checking for you. Sometimes the damages are underneath and therefore, you won’t know. We are here to help.
