Signs You Need a Roof Repair
Your roof plays a vital role in protecting the structural integrity of your entire property. A deteriorating roof exposes your home or commercial building to the elements, creating a host of problems including water damage, mold growth, insect infestations and more. Thankfully, these potential problems can be easily avoided with a roof repair if signs of damage are caught early enough. At CMR Construction, we offer quality residential and commercial roofing services for clients in Jupiter, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Ft Lauderdale and other nearby Florida communities. Here are the most common signs that indicate a roof repair or replacement is needed.
Sunlight Is Showing Through the Roof in Your Attic
If you have an unfinished attic, then you can check for sunlight peeking through in certain areas. This is a sure indicator that your roof has suffered damage. Pinpointing the areas where light is coming through will help you determine which areas of the roof need immediate attention.
If you notice sagging spots, then this indicates that the roof is in disrepair and that severe water damage is already underway. At this point you will need to get a complete inspection, because the structure of the home itself may be corrupted.
Many people dismiss leaks as being the sign of a plumbing problem. While this is certainly true in many cases, it could also be caused by a roof issue. Scheduling a plumbing inspection will eliminate the possibility of leaky pipes. If the plumber says that your leaks aren’t caused by plumbing problems, then it’s probably time for a roof repair.
Mold, Moss or Algae Growth
Do you have moss or algae growing on your roof tiles? Are there visible signs of mold on the inside of your property? These are all signs of excess moisture build up. Mold growth can be dangerous, especially if it is toxic. Signs of mold near your roof and ceiling usually mean a leak is already occurring and a repair is needed right away. While it’s normal for roofs to attract algae or moss, it’s important to remove it as soon as possible. Continued growth can deteriorate roofing materials.
Discovering Pieces of Loose Roofing Materials
If you notice shingles in your yard, pieces of tile in your gutters or other roofing material scattered about, then there’s sure to be trouble somewhere on your roof. This is especially true following severe storms or high winds. Be sure to get an inspection right away to replace any missing portions of your roof.
