Signs You Need A New Roof

We’re getting into spring, so it’s time to start inspecting everything with your home before the heat of summer takes over. Before you break out the lawn chairs and barbeque, maybe it’s a good idea to get on your ladder and inspect your roofing! The smallest of issues can turn into big leaks — and you definitely do not want to deal with those! Check for these telling signs that your roof needs repairing in order to stay dry.

  • Broken Shingles. If you’re seeing broken or missing shingles, it’s in your best interest to remedy this situation as soon as possible. Not only can this cause horrible leaks and other issues, but it doesn’t look the best either.
  • Sagging Gutters. Intense weather can shed light on larger issues dealing with your roof and drainage system. Sagging gutters are often signs that something is not right on the roof, whether it be a period of inclement weather or large debris. Nonetheless, it doesn’t hurt to get up and check!
  • Bouncy Roof. If you’re up on your roof, bounce up and down a few times. If you can feel your roof flexing with your weight, it’s time to give it a thorough inspection. Go into your attic and check for sunlight through the boards. If you can see light, it’s a good idea to contact a professional and see about repairing the area.
