Your roof is one of the most essential elements of your home. It guards
you, your family, and your home from wind, water, and other harsh
conditions. However, it is also part of the home that is often overlooked until
it’s too late. Detecting roof damage early can prevent costly repairs down
the line. But do you know what to look for? Here are a few signs it’s time to
call a professional roofing company.

· Leaks and Water Stains – The most obvious sign that you
have an issue with your roof is dampness. But water stains should
never be ignored. They could be due to water intrusion during storms
that dry once it’s over.
· Missing or Damaged Shingles – This may be harder to spot
from the ground, but it’s important. Consider hiring a drone company
to perform a visual inspection of your roof on a regular schedule and
after major storms.
· Granules in Gutters – Over time, roof shingles deteriorate. If
you notice excess granules in the gutters when you clear them, it
may be due to older shingles that need replacing.
· Moss or Algae Growth – You may think that this kind of growth
is quaint, but it can also be evidence of trapped moisture and should
be researched.

Finally, any water intrusion in the home should be investigated immediately.
Issues caught early are normally easy to correct. Taking proactive steps
can extend the life of your roof and prevent damage both inside and
outside the home.
