3 Roof Warning Signs: You Need a Professional
- Roofing Shingles – Are your shingles curling or buckling? This is not normal. When hot air gets trapped in your attic it can heat up the underside of your shingles and cause them to curl. When your shingles are curled there is an easier entryway for water and leaks are more prone to occur. You may also want to check for dark spots on your roof caused by missing shingles.
- Gutters – Your gutters are a vital part of your roofing system. However, if they get clogged this can cause major roof damage. Water will start to build on top of the clogged gutters and seep into your shingles. We recommend that you clean your gutters at least twice a year to prevent damage.
- Flashing – Flashing is used to help keep your roof from water damage. It is a strip of metal typically found around joints or intersections such as chimneys. It’s important to check these areas for cracks or leaks.
