What Our Roofers Look For During A Roof Inspection
Some of the most common warning signs your roofing is due for replacement:
- Leaks or water stains. Recurring leak problems often signal the need for a new roof. Wetness or water stains may be visible on interior ceilings, which can then be traced to the attic and the roof. When not caught early, leaks will lead to rot, mold and other problems.
- Storm damage. Depending on their severity, storms can cause enough damage to warrant complete roof replacement. Typical types of storm damage include missing and torn shingles, damaged flashing, and bruising or cracking of shingles caused by rain impact.
- Worn shingles. As shingles age, their protective granule surface gradually wears away, leaving the internal mat exposed and causing the shingle to become brittle. Watch for excessive amounts of granules in the gutters, a sign of advanced wear.
- Curling or blistering shingles. Attic ventilation problems, manufacturer defects and improper installation can ruin shingles.
Should I File a Claim with My Homeowner’s Insurance Company?
If you’re not sure if your roof needs to be replaced due to storm damage, call ALB01 Construction before contacting your insurance agent. Insurance companies record your inspection requests, and may even “red flag” your account if you file too many. We can give you an honest assessment of your roof’s condition and advise if it’s necessary to file a claim.
