Subject: Do You Have A Roofing Problem? Four Quick Visual Inspections Will Tell You For Sure


So you know that if your roof is leaking and you probably need to get something done about it. But sometimes, people don’t really know how to tell if they have a roof problem or not.

In addition to noticeable leaks, there are other signs that indicate your roof needs attention. Watch out for the following:

  • Missing or torn shingles expose the roof to water damage and rot, and make nearby shingles more susceptible to being blown away. Old shingles will curl, split and lose their waterproofing effectiveness. These weakened shingles are more likely to be blown away by wind gusts.
  • Rusted or missing flashing can result in leaks. Flashing is the metal that surrounds chimneys, skylights and vent pipes and often is found in the valleys where roof sections meet.
  • Check gutters, downspouts and splash pans for evidence of decay or damage. Broken pieces of paint and scraps of roofing may be visible.
  • Indoors, look for discolored plasterboard or cracked paint and peeling wallpaper.
