If you’re like most people you probably don’t pay much attention to your roof. My roof looks okay so there’s nothing wrong with it right? That may not necessarily be the case though. A lot of times problems with your roof can be hard to notice unless you’re up on the roof really giving it close attention. At J & K Roofing we perform detailed inspections to make sure your roof is in good condition. There are some signs where you’d look at your roof and know it needs a repair. But other times it isn’t that easy and a problem can go unnoticed for a while if you don’t have a routine inspection. Here are 5 signs that your roof may need a repair:
- It looks old and outdated. No one wants their house to look old from the outside, and sometimes your roof may need a power washing to regain its new appearance. If your roof is beginning to look outdated a professional roofer can help.
- You have missing or damaged shingles or tiles. This is one of the easiest ways to tell your roof needs a repair. Wind and water can naturally wear on your roof, and if tiles or shingles become damaged it can lead to bigger problems down the road.
- You have a leak. Have you notice water leaking into your home or office? Is your wallpaper beginning to peel? These are signs you have a leak and need a professional to come look at your roof right away.
- Your bills have increased. Having a small leak may not always be easy to detect, but one way to notice there might be a problem is if your electric bill is on the rise. If your AC or heating bills have gone up this could signify a problem with your roof or with the insulation.
- Your gutters are constantly clogging. Having clogged gutters is not a good thing and should be taken care of. You need clean gutters to make sure water can runoff. Sticks, leafs and other things can cause your gutters to become clogged and if they are you need them looked at.
These are a few common problems that one can see with their roof. If you notice any problems and need to contact a roofing contractor, call our professionals at J & K Roofing. We’re here for all of your roofing needs.
