Signs You May Need a Roof Repair
While it may seem obvious that a leaking roof is a sign for roof repair, determining where the leak is coming from might not be so obvious. Water may be leaking into the home in a completely different area than where you see the damage inside by running along rafters, walls, and other objects. Our roofers can help determine exactly where the leak is coming from and how to repair it.
Shingles that are cracked, curled or missing are often indicators that a leak will soon follow. It is important to get roof repairs done as soon as possible to avoid more costly damages from happening.
Water stains are another sign that roof repairs are needed. Whether the stains are on your ceiling, walls or anywhere else, it is important to discover the source and get it repaired right away. Moisture that is locked up can cause mold and mildew growth, which can be dangerous to breathe in.
Check the Attic
If you notice light peeking through, then so can water. If you notice traces of water, there could be leaking that just hasn’t made it to your ceiling yet.
While you are in your attic, you should check to see if your rafters are sinking. This is a sign that moisture is leaking into the attic from the roof and may be causing serious damage
If you notice paint blistering and peeling near your roofline, it may be because your roof is allowing moisture and humidity buildup from poor ventilation.
The Carolinas are considered a high risk area for blue-green algae (Gleocapsa magma) to form. It can cause black stains wherever it grows and prematurely age a roof’s appearance. GAF now offers special Stainguard Plus shingles that uses specially engineered copper capsules to for longer-lasting algae-fighting power.
Chimneys can be another source of leaking and moisture issues, and improper routing of water away from the chimney or poor (or lack thereof) of flashing installation can cause additional issues. But it may not always be an issue with where your chimney meets your roof! Old mortar may crack and water can then seep in through the chimney itself. That’s why Elite Roofing’s team of roofing experts can help you inspect, find the likely source, and repair the damage
