Before hiring a roof expert, there are some things you can check for yourself regarding the condition of the roof. The first step is to check on it as often as possible, especially after heavy storms, hail or high winds. The good news is that you don’t have to climb up a ladder to get a look at your roof. Instead, all you need is a good pair of binoculars to see any potential issues. Let’s get started!

First look for:
  • Missing shingles
  • Curling shingles
  • Cracked shingles
  • Peeling flashing
  • Missing granules

If there is anything that should be replaced, please contact a roofing contractor to do the job for you that will guarantee your safety and your investment.

Also, look for leaks in your attic and ceilings:
  • Musty odors in certain rooms.
  • Water stains on your ceiling.
  • Spots on your exterior walls.
  • Bulging patches on your interior walls.

You must call a professional contractor to patch the wall and find the root of the problem.

You might also want to:
  • Trim any branches that might be overhanging the roof.
  • Clean your gutters.
