Early Warning Signs of Roof Damage

After years of exposure to the elements, roofs start to wear, which can cause thousands of dollars of damage. The biggest problem is that most people aren’t aware of the common symptoms of a failing roof until it’s already too late. Watch out for some of these early warning signs.

  • Cracked shingles
  • Curling shingles
  • Buckling shingles
  • Bare spots in your shingles
  • Shingle colour loss
  • Shingle granule loss or balding
  • Shingle pieces found around the perimeter of your property
  • Shingles found in the eavestrough
  • Ruptured/worn valleys
  • Enlarged or swelled rain-lines

The problems above can be caused by the age of the roof and its exposure to wind, rain, snow and even sun. Similarly, they can also be caused by animals, manufacturer’s defects and improper installation. It’s important to recognize these warning signs early on, before these problems start to cost you.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then it may be time to call a professional roofing contractor like Turnbull Roofing & Renovations Ltd for a thorough inspection.
