Many roofs will last years and reliably protect families and properties from the weather and other risk factors. Yet no matter the roof, it will someday need to be replaced by a roof service. Unfortunately, replacing a roof is a rather intensive and expensive project but delaying could cause substantial damage to your property.
That’s why it’s smart to keep a close eye on the roof for warning signs that either shingles or the whole roof need to be replaced.
With roofs, moisture is often the most frequent damaging factor. That’s why it’s smart to look for signs of mold on the roof. Folks can peak under shingles and check elsewhere for mold. If any is discovered, it’s likely due to trapped moisture.
Bubbles are another sign, meaning the shingles are bubbling up. If water gets trapped under the shingles, it could expand, especially if heated by the sun. This leads to bubbles. Curling shingles are yet another sign, and one that’s often easy to spy from the ground. As shingles age, they will start to curl up.
Folks who don’t want to go on the roof themselves can instead hire a roof service to take a look. Professional roofers reduce risks and can spot things homeowners might miss.
