For most of us, out of sight is out of mind. Since we don’t notice, let alone inspect our roofs regularly, we forget that they are prone to deterioration. While minor repairs can take care of small issues, sometimes you may need to address roof issues on priority.
In this blog, we discuss some signs that you need to consider roof repair and in some cases emergency roof repair services. Let’s jump straight into it.
1. Your roof is showing signs of cracking
If you notice cracks in your roof, you need to act fast. Cracks can allow water to seep inside your house and damage the rest of your roof. Cracks in your roof can also bring problems like mold into your house. Depending on the type of damage, cracks could be in the insulation, sealant, roof coating or just the shingles.
2. Your roof showing signs of leakage
Leakage in the roof is a sign of serious damage. This damage can quickly extend to other parts of the house, if not fixed in time. At Hynes Roofing and Siding, we have experts who can assess the extent of the damage and recommend a customised solution for your roof. Along with the rit and decay a leaking roof may cause, it may also bring in mold and mildew into your house.
3. Your roof is showing signs of weather damage
Roofs take a lot of beating in harsh weather conditions. Weather conditions like storms, heavy snowfall, hurricanes etc. can cause extensive damage to the roof. Broken shingles, broken chimney flashing, clogged gutters or downspouts, broken accents and damage to the roof decking beneath your roof are some signs of weather damage.
4. You are planning to renovate your house
If you are thinking of making bold changes in and around the house, you should also consider making roofing repairs or upgrades. Making changes inside the house while leaving underlying roof issues unaddressed can leave your house exposed. Let’s say you have a flat roof. Hire flat roof maintenance and repair experts like Hynes Roofing and Siding to inspect your roof and tell you if you need to replace or upgrade any part of the roof.
5. Your roof has algae, mold and wet shingles
If the shingles on your roof are trapping moisture instead of sending it off, consider replacing them. Curled, cracked or damaged shingles can trap moisture underneath and that can cause algae, mold or mildew to grow. A sagging roof is also a sign of a wet roof.
All roofs have a lifespan and will eventually have to be repaired or replaced. Always hire an expert roofing contractor to carry out repairs to ensure your roof has a long life.
