In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell if you need roof repair.

How to Tell If You Need Roof Repair

  • Check for Damaged Shingles- If you have a traditional shingle roof, one way to get a sense of whether you need roof repair or not is to check for missing or damaged shingles. If any shingles are curled at the edges, have developed cracks, or have blown off the roof entirely, you probably need roof repair. We encourage you to give us a call as soon as possible to get this problem taken care of.
  • Make Sure the Roof Deck isn’t Sagging- Another way to tell whether you need roof repair is to look at its lines–while your roof may have different angles of pitch, each section should remain straight along those lines. Specifically, if parts of your roof deck are sagging down and creating a noticeable dip in the roofline, you definitely have a problem, and should get experts on the job as soon as possible.
  • Look for Algae Growth- A third way to tell if you need roof repair is to keep an eye out for any algae growth or wet patches on the shingles. Both are signs of a moisture problem and should be addressed right away i to prevent the problem from getting worse and causing more damage.
