A large variety of issues including storms and weather can cause damage to your roof. It is always important to have your roof checked by one of our certified roofing contractors especially after a storm or any extreme weather. If you expect you have damage, give Paul Dave a call, you shouldn’t wait for the “next storm” or weather to hit before getting an inspection. If water enters your home, it may cause serious structural damage that will be expensive to repair. Here are things to look for:
1- Older Roof: In the St Louis area, we experience extremes in weather ranging from ice, sleet and snow in the winter to very hot, humid stormy conditions in the summer. Shingles are made to last a long time, but these extreme conditions can accelerate the aging of your shingles. If you notice your neighbors getting new roofs installed, its recommending you have an inspections done.
2- Interior Damage: Have you had any changes inside your home? Stains on your ceiling, paint bubbles, sagging ceilings or streaks on the walls may mean that unwanted moisture is entering your home.
3- Blistered, Cracked, or Curling Shingles: Signs like this can happen as a result of storm damage, improper ventilation, improper installation, or defects in the product.
4- Granule Loss: As roofs age and near the end of their useful life, granule loss occurs. Granule loss can also be caused by storm and hail damage. You may even see bald spots where the fiber layer reflects the sun, granule will buildup in the gutters or on the ground by the downspouts are signs the shingles are no longer protecting your home.
5- Rotten Wood: Rotting wood on your soffit and fascia boards means there is moisture entering your roof where it should not be. This is often an indication of a previous moisture like an ice dam. This can affect the integrity of your roof and lead to serious damage of the soffit and fascia as well as interior damage to the ceiling and walls.
