Signs that you might need a new roof
A leak in the attic - after a strong storm or
wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of leaking.
Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint
- when paint starts to peel off, the cause is likely trapped
moisture in the house due to excessive temperature or high humidity
from poor attic ventilation.
Stains on interior ceilings and walls - if you
see stains or, even worse, mold growth inside your home, it may be
caused by inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment that is allowing
water to seep into the house.
Missing, cracked, or curled shingles - if you
see that your shingles are dry or practically break when touched,
that means they have reached the end of their useful life and it’s
time to invest in a new roof.
Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof -
this could mean your roof has vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae
growth, or that the shingles’ protective granules have been lost.
Excessive energy costs - a possible cause of
higher cooling costs could be insufficient attic ventilation,
requiring the cooling system to run excessively.
