Additional Signs of Concern
Easy to spot issues include:
* Cupping of the shingles or curled edges on some or all of the shingles on the roof.
* Small granules littering the area where the roof runoff drains. This is the actual surface of the shingles washing away.
* Moss– moss on the roof can show signs of exposed wood or the moss can actually be growing right on the shingles. This will loosen the granules and lead to leaks.
* Bare patches – shiny or dark patches on the roof can indicate areas where the granules have completely worn away. This limits the ability of the roof to allow the rain to run off the surface.
Any interior leaks to the home should definitely be checked immediately. These can be around vents in the roof or across any part of the roof surface. Visit the website for more information.
