Your roof is the first line of defence when comes to defending your home against the endless assault that mother nature throws at it. Your roof takes the hot sun on it all day; it takes the brunt of the high winds, the driving rain, the dumping snow, the freezing rain and the pounding hail. No other part of your house is assaulted like the roof of your house.
How can you tell that your roof is failing?
If you notice that the shingles are starting to curl or buckle, that’s a sign that they are towards the end of their use and need to be replaced.
It is not uncommon for homeowners with older roofs to find granules from their shingles among the refuse in the gutters. These granules are somewhat larger than a grain of sand. Also, be sure to check that the shingles have not become dislodged.
Missing shingles are also a tell-tale sign that your roof needs a complete overhaul.
You will also want to look for any signs of moisture on your roof. Are there any dark patches visible? This could be an accumulation of moisture, which can lead to mold and mildew problems. A spongy, “bouncy” sections of your roof can also be a sign of moisture becoming trapped in your roof.
