5 Signs You Might Need a New Roof

By : Guillermo Molina Matus

Ever wondered if it’s time to replace or repair your old roof? In this short article, we will go over some signs that you can easily spot without getting on the roof. If you notice any of these on your house, contact a local roofing contractor like G and Bros Roofing to help you solve your problem.

Visible Leaks

One of the most common signs that you need a new roof is visible leak spots. If you have any water damage inside your house, this means that your roof has already been compromised. If the leak is left or ignored for a long time, water could cause more interior damage and structural damage.

Moss Growth

Moss growth is often overlooked by many homeowners. It might be due to living in an area that is prone to moss growth and is seen as a common occurrence.

The truth about moss is that it is damaging to the roof. They absorb water and retain it, allowing water to build up and penetrate the roof. In some cases, occurs more often around Salisbury MD, and moss will rapidly spread under the shingles. This will cause the shingles to become loose and shorten their life span.

Curling or Buckling Shingles

Curling or Buckling Shingles

Shingle curling or buckling is caused by different things, either through high winds, old shingles, or damaged roofs. Overall if your shingles are buckling or curling, they have lost the integrity needed to prevent water from penetrating the roof. Sometimes if a couple of shingles are curling or buckling, a repair might be able to temporarily delay the need for a new shingle.

Missing Shingles

One of the easiest signs will be missing shingles. You will either spot a missing shingle from your roof or see a shingle on the ground. Sometimes a shingle is the only one that was blown off, so a repair could be done. In most cases, multiple shingles have been loosened or shingle seals have been broken.
