What Are The Signs Of Roof Shingle Damage?

When it comes to owning a home, it tends to feel like maintenance is a never-ending thing, and that is partially due to the fact it is! A home is a large investment and protecting that investment requires the homeowner to keep up with a few things, including the roof. Depending upon the type of roof, quality of materials, whether the installation was done property, etc. a roof can last anywhere from 10-75 years, with shingles typically being in the 10-25 range. This doesn’t mean you should just ignore your roof until it is time to get a new one, however. Even minor damage to a shingle roof can quickly become a much more serious issue, especially when moisture is involved. Today, Timberman Roofing is discussing the various signs your shingle roof may be damaged and need an inspection, some repairs and possibly even replacement.

Peeling Shingles

When you look at your roof do you notice shingles that are curled and peeling away from the rest of them? This tends to happen with age and can actually compromise the protection from moisture and leaks. In many cases areas can be repaired to avoid complications, however, if the issue is severe enough, a roof replacement may be required.

Cracked Shingles

Have you noticed shingles on your roof are quite literally cracking and breaking? This is another thing that happens with age/exposure to the elements of the Florida Panhandle. Depending upon how much of the roof is cracking/damaged it may require an entirely new roof to be placed.

Loss of Granules

Have you noticed the shingles decaying? Finding granules of roof shingle in your downspouts or gutters? Wear and tear over the years can lead to the shingles breaking down. When this begins to happen, it is highly recommended that you schedule a roof inspection with a professional.

Hail Marks

Have you experienced a recent storm involving hail? Noticed that you can see areas where the hail specifically hit? In many cases, a roof can withstand a bit of hail, however, in other cases, it can lead to some damaged areas on the roof. We recommend trying to address these areas to avoid any of the damage becoming a bigger problem.
