Your home’s first line of defense against the elements is your roof, it protects you from heavy rain, sleet, snow and high winds. We all know how costly roof repairs can be so to help avoid the worst case scenario, do a quick inspection of the inside and outside of your roof during the spring time. Here are a few things to look out for when you inspect your roof to avoid roofing disasters:
Water or Water Damage
If you find water or water damage when you check your attic, it could mean that there is a leak in your roof. This should be especially obvious to spot after hard or heavy driving rains. Try to check the walls and ceilings of every room in your house. Spots or discoloration on the ceilings as well as on the walls could be signs that moisture has penetrated your roof because of a possible leak.
Cracks or Curls
Other common indicators of leaks or damage on the exterior of your house would be cracking, peeling, chipping, or in some situations debris. When you check the roof itself, look for signs of disintegration on the shingles (cracks or curls), dislodged or missing shingles as well as dirty looking ones. These shingles need to be replaced quickly to avoid any further or more serious structural damage to your roof. Also check the integrity of the gutters and chimney (if you have one installed) and ensure that they are free of debris or obstructions.
