7 Warning Signs You Need Expert Roof Repair

While certain types of roof damage like loose shingles, bare spots, and leaks are easily noticeable, others may go unnoticed. Here are a few ways you can check for roof damage before calling in the pros.

Your Home’s Roof is Sagging

A sagging roof is often a sign of a weight issue.

If your roof is sagging, it could be due to heavy gutters, weakened structures, or water damage. Get in touch with a professional from Larson Home Services to repair your sagging roof.

Defective Shingles

Shingles are designed to protect your home from the elements. When they become damaged, everything Missing, broken, or dented shingles compromise your roof’s structure and must be repaired or replaced to prevent roof leaks. Otherwise, you could find yourself dealing with mold and mildew problems.

Protect your home! Schedule a shingle repair or replacement today to avoid leaks and mold.

Your Gutters Are Blocked 

Your gutters do a lot more work than you think. They don’t just collect and channel away water, but they also prevent your home from becoming waterlogged. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up onto your roof, causing leaks and potential flooding. Ensure you clean your gutters at least six times a year to prevent water damage.

Increase in Energy Bills

No one wants to see rising costs on their monthly energy bill. But did you know that your roof could be the culprit of your rising costs? That’s because a roof leak could lead to wet insulation, affecting your home’s temperature and ultimately leading to increased energy bills. Call a professional roofer for roof repairs, replacement, and inspection.

Presence of Mold 

Mold is always the result of excess moisture, so if your roof is leaking, mold growth may not be far behind. Mold can grow in as little as 24 hours, so make sure you’re calling a professional roofer as soon as you notice a roof leak or the presence of mold.

In addition, mold, mildew, and excess moisture can eventually lead to wood rot and structural damage.

Visible Exterior Light

Unless you have a skylight, you should see any light peeking through your roof. Any amount of light that enters your house through your roof points to holes, cracks, or gaps in your roofing. Call Larson Home Services to get an expert on your property today.

How To Check for Quality After Getting a Roof Repair

Hiring a roofing contractor in Madison is a big deal. After all, your home is your biggest investment, and getting a roof repair and replacement is no small cost. Once the roofers have finished the job, take a moment to check for quality. Every homeowner can and should check for quality after a roof repair. Just follow the steps below:

1. Check For Proper Sheathing 

Roof sheathing is also known as the roof deck. A professional roofer will make sure the sheathing is correct before finishing repairing your roof. When you check for quality, inspect and ensure that the contractor took time to repair the sheath properly.

2. Is the Work Site Clean?

Your roofing contractor should always clean up after themselves.

A good contractor cares about the cleanliness of your home and will ensure the work site and landscape are both spotless. They shouldn’t leave behind any cardboard, shingles, nails, or any other dangerous materials.

3. Check For Proper Underlayment

The underlayment of your roof should be placed between the sheath and the shingles. The protective underlayment should be placed to protect your home from water and ice forming on the roof. If you find that the underlayment isn’t shielding from water and ice, contact your roofer.

4. Are the Nails Strategically Placed?

Roofers aren’t supposed to place nails blindly. Nails should be placed strategically to safeguard shingles when doing your roof repair and installation.

If the nails aren’t nailed down correctly, you could experience loose or blown-off shingles. Take a look at your nails and ensure they’re securely anchored into place.

5. Are the Shingles Repaired or Installed Correctly?

The way shingles are repaired or installed can affect the integrity of your roof. Checking the alignment of shingles on your roof is one of the easiest ways to check for quality. Take a look at your shingles and check whether they’re aligned on the same horizontal plane.

6. Pay Attention To Small Details

Minor details are everything. Checking for any irregularities in areas such as your roof’s flashing can prevent further issues from cropping up down the line.
