Is your roof in good shape? Are you sure? If you haven’t had your roof inspected lately, there’s no telling what type of damage might’ve taken place without you being aware. You will want to get a look at your roof to see whether there is any indication of damage. Below are some indications that your roof could be suffering from damage that could end up getting worse if you don’t take care of it right away.
Damage to the Shingles
Do you have damaged or missing shingles? This tends to be one of the more obvious signs that there is a problem with the roof, but it’s still something people sometimes ignore. Check out your shingles to see if any are missing, as well as whether any appear to have cracks in them or curling around the edges. You will want to have them fixed or replaced as soon as you see the damage. They are the first line of defense for your roof and without them, worse problems can ensue.
If part of your roof is in the shade most of the time, it can lead to moss growing on the roof. This means there is more moisture on the roof, and the moss could start to get under the shingles. If this happens, it means your home will be more likely to suffer from issues with wood rot and leaks, not to mention damaged shingles.
If animals like bats, birds, squirrels, or larger animals have gotten into the attic or walls, it could very well be due to a hole in or around the roof. Even small holes shouldn’t be ignored. Have the animals removed and seal off any places where they could get inside to keep your roof and your home safe.
