If you are a homeowner, one of your responsibilities to maintain your home is having roof inspections and fixing repairs as needed. In the cases that you need assistance, you should always call a professional roofer. Here are the top signs you need to call a roofer for help.
- Age – Typically, asphalt shingled roofs will last about 25 years. When you purchase a home you should always ask how old the roofing is so you can determine if you will need a roof replacement in the near future. In the case of needing a new or repaired roof, you should always call a professional roofer.
- Sag – A significant sign that you need to call a roofer is if your roof is sagging. This is not only a sign that you need a new roof, but you could also be having structural issues, and your roof could be on its way to collapsing.
- Damages – Signs of damage to your roof include missing or damaged shingles, damp spots in the ceiling of your home, or sagging of your roof. Even if you are fixing a loose shingle, you should always call a professional roofer for proper repairs and safety.
- Mold – If you begin to recognize patches and spots on your roof, you could have mold or moss. Both can be washed off, but likely won’t fix the issue. Both mold and moss are signs that your roof is beginning to rot, so we recommend calling a professional roofer right away for an inspection and diagnosis.
We hope these signs will help you determine if you need to call a roofer. If you have any questions regarding roofing, and other services we provide, please contact us at Freedom Roofing, Windows and Siding LLC.
