When was the last time you had your roof inspected? No matter where you live in the United States, your roof is at risk thanks to wind, hail, or snow. Our team has compiled a list of five items you should keep an eye on, especially after any significant weather. These signs will help you keep up to date on roof repairs and replacement
Are your shingles looking worse for wear? While missing, cracked, or curled shingles are an obvious sign to get your roof inspected. It’s also important to check if your shingles look consistently dirty or damp, which may be a sign that they are ineffective and retaining moisture.
Take a look around the outside of your home. If your roof is working properly, your exterior paint should look clean and attractive. Your house’s paint will show if your roof isn’t keeping moisture off your home. Signs to look for include peeling, bubbling, and discoloration. If you see these signs, get your roof inspected and repaired before fixing your exterior paint to ensure these issues won’t reappear.
If you live in an area that gets snow, you can easily check to see if your roof is working properly. Simply look at your roof after a snowstorm. Is there snow resting on your roof? If there is then that means your roof is properly insulating your home. If your roof is bare, then your valuable heat is escaping through your roof and melting the snow.
4. Your Energy Bill
Are you keeping track of your energy bills? They should be roughly the same amount year to year. If you are suddenly seeing a drastic increase in your energy bills, then your roof may be to blame! A roof is a vital aspect of your home’s insulation, and an old roof can frequently result in a loss of cool or warm air.
5. Your Neighbors
Keeping up with the Joneses can actually help you maintain a cozy and protected home. If you’re noticing that your neighbors are getting their roofs repaired or replaced, then it’s time to get an inspection. Their roof will be approximately the same age and have experienced the same weather as yours, which means if their roof needs a replacement, then it’s probably time for yours as well.
