What are the signs that I need a new roof?

Besides some of the obvious visual signs of a damaged roof, some signs could include:
  • Curled, warped, cracked or missing shingles
  • Deteriorating flashing, siding or loose seams.
  • Leaks in the attic after rainfall.
  • Excessive amount of shingle granules in the gutters and downspouts.
  • Water stains on the inside walls and ceilings of the home.
  • Blistering or peeling paint on the inside/outside of the home.
  • High energy bills
It is important to inspect the roof of your home at least 1-2 times a year to help avoid costly damages that may occur from a failing roofing system.
