Look for These Signs of Roof Damage
The first signs of spring are always highly anticipated. Warmer temperatures, chirping birds, and blooming flowers are some of the best things to look forward to. As a homeowner, you know that spring is also the perfect time to get your spring cleaning and home improvements done; taking a good look at your roof may be one of the items at the top of your to-do list. Your roof can take a beating during the long, harsh winter, so it’s best to see if it needs any repairs once the spring season rolls around.
While you’re inspecting your roof, here are a few things you should be looking out for:
Leaks in the Attic
Before you look at your roof from the outside, take a trip up to your attic. You will notice the signs of a leaking roof in no time: water stains, a sagging ceiling, and a mildew odor are all strong indicators of this common issue.
Now it’s time to go outside. Are there roofing shingles strewn all over your lawn? Are there shingles clogging up your gutters? A severe wind storm could have blown them off your roof. Your roof shouldn’t have any missing shingles. This is a tell-tale sign that your roof needs professional repair.
Your flashing connects essential parts of your roof together, such as your skylights, chimney, dormers, and any slopes in your roof. The caulking should not be cracked and there should be no rust spots on the flashing. If you do notice these problems, talk to a professional.
