Learning the signs of potential roof damage is essential in catching small issues before they become big problems. Read these areas to check, and contact a roofing professional if you believe your roof may be damaged.
Inside the Home
Grab a flashlight and begin your examination inside your home’s attic.
- Check for signs of water damage or leaks.
- Examine the roof deck for any areas that appear to be sagging.
- Notice any dark spots or trails in the attic.
- Check for light showing through any part of the roof.
Safely view your home’s roof and look for any potential damage.
- Look for any cracked, torn, damaged, or missing shingles.
- Examine the area around chimneys, pipes, skylights, and vents in the roof for loose or damaged shingles.
- Check that all gutters and downspouts are attached securely to the home and are free of debris.
- Look for signs of mold or shingle rot on your roof.
Try to avoid climbing on your roof yourself. Not only can this damage your roof, it puts you at risk for dangerous falls. We know roofers make it look easy, but accidents can happen to anyone.
