Identifying signs of roof damage can not only help you save money, it can help you protect the structural integrity of your home. At Larry Haight’s Residential Roofing, we work with our customers to completely understand the scope of any damage to their roof. With a complete inspection, and an itemized cost estimate, our customers are empowered to decide whether it’s time for some roof repairs or a full roofing replacement.
Signs of Roof Damage
Does your roof have…
Worn out shingles or shakes
Over time the material on your roof will split, curl and buckle. Aging material leads to failures in protecting your home from the Puget Sound weather. Rafter lines will appear when plywood begins to delaminate.
Aside from making your roof look unattractive, missing roofing material creates opportunities for water to enter your home. High wind, poor material installation, and neglect weakens the strength of your roof’s shingles.
Moss on your roof isn’t like having your own eco-friendly green roof. Over time, moss breaks down and compromises the integrity of roof shingles, whether they be composition or wood. Moss travels on the tiniest speck of dirt, lands on your roof and grows, grows, grows. Annual moss removal is a must on your check list in maintaining your roof.
Have you noticed black stains on your roof? That is algae staining. The algae spore, like moss, takes root on your roof spreading to form black triangular shapes on your shingles. With our moist climate, algae is severe in the Puget Sound area. Remember, never power wash your roof – you can severely damage your shingles.
Interior Signs of Damage
Whether in your attic, your ceilings, or your walls, you want to watch out for signs of roof damage. Black mold, wet insulation, and ceiling stains all indicate structural damage under your roof shingles. Larry Haight Roofing technicians can help review these conditions and review how they can indicate inadequate ventilation, leaks, and structural weakness.
