June 02, 2017 at 8:54 AM
Our home is our safe haven, protecting us from outside elements and dangers. But there are unseen enemies like mold and mildew that can still enter any home, or building, through nooks and crannies, which will not just affect our home but even our health. Detecting problems with your roofing is extremely important to the overall safety and “health” of your home. Here are some signs to look for that may determine if you need a roofing repair or roof replacement:
Shingles curl because they were kept inappropriately before installation or weren’t installed properly. Types of material quality and weathering are also some factors that can make shingles curl. When your shingles are curling, there is now potential for water to enter the roof through seeping. When shingles are curled it is not advised to apply pressure on them, instead they should be replaced immediately.
An amateur contractor will make sure he leaves a reminder for you to regret calling him in the first place. One type of reminder that he may leave would be a leaking roof. At any sign of a leaking roof, you need to call H&S Roofing & Gutter Company. Do not let a potential problem worsen by leaving it alone.
Rotting is more common in places where the humidity level is higher. Wooden and asphalts shingles both are more prone to rot with moisture. If either of them has de-shaped due to absorbing excess water, a roof replacement may be needed rather than a roof repair. The rotting process is irreversible and any repair or fixing is not going to help it.
Algae buildup, damaged flashing and decaying shingles are some other signs of your roof may need a roofing repair or a replacement.
