How often do you check your roof? If you’re like most, the last thing on your mind is checking on your roof. Inspecting your roof on a regular basis can prevent costly roof repairs. Keeping your roof in good condition will also be beneficial if you decide to sell your home.
Here is a list of signs of a failing roof:
- Shingles lose their seal and begin to curl.
- Shingles losing their seal and curling on the edges.
- Sliding and(or) missing shingles.
- Excess granules from shingles appearing in your gutters.
- Deterioration of the rubber boot around piping or chimneys.
- Water stains on your ceiling. A prolonged roof leak can cause molding and termite infestation.
- Daylight coming through roof. Check attic for light coming through boards.
Notice any of the signs above? Is your roof older than 10 years old? If so, it might be time to replace your roof. Did you know that most roofing wind warranties only last 15 years? After 15 years, insurance companies will advise you to replace your roof or they could drop your insurance coverage.
