Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against all outdoor elements. So, of course, you want to make sure that it’s fully operational at all times. Most know to have regular maintenance performed which helps to address any potential issues. But as we all know, there’s a lot that can happen between those designated times for maintenance and inspection. The professionals at Trustworthy Service Company are here to tell a few things to look out for that tells you if you need a roof repair.
- Bare spots or miss granules: This is one of the more obvious signs, typically a result of the absence of an eavestrough, poorly placed downspouts, or the overall age of the roof. Over time, the protective granules on your shingles can become worn down. Without those granules, your shingles become hardened by the sun, accelerates aging, and can turn into an entryway for water.
- Clawing shingles: Clawing, also referred to as curling, can be caused by excessive heat or just the natural aging of the roofing system. These shingles become stiff and can easily break in high winds.
- Damaged flashing: Flashing can normally be found around chimneys, skylights, and a number of other areas on your roof that has an opening. Because of the general contraction and expansion that it experiences, they can become loose and open up to become an entryway for water.
